Lawrence Co. Head Coach Melinda Feltner
“… Very proud of our effort tonight. We had a little bit of nerves to start the game but settled in and played well. We got out to an early lead which helped. We had a lot of girls step up tonight when we had foul trouble and Kaison go down with an injury. It was definitely a great effort tonight and we’re so excited to be playing for a district championship Thursday night.”
