Lawrence Co. Head Coach Melinda Feltner
“…Very proud of our girls and how we finished the season last night at Morgan County. We struggled early to score. Had opportunities just wasn’t finishing well around the rim. Finally was able to pull together some baskets and build a lead. Morgan is a very good team and I’m glad we had another opportunity to play them before the district tournament. We finished the regular season tying the most wins in our program. We hope to add to that next week in the district tournament. Again very proud of our girls and looking forward to next week. “
