Lawrence Co. Head Coach Kenny Horn
“… At Lincoln County we hit the ball well, but left to many on base. Couldn’t get that clutch hit. Outside of a couple plays that’s a different game. I have to give Coach Tommy Barrett credit. He has a very nice team and will win it this year. I didn’t have my team ready to face that many lefties in their lineup so that’s on me! We got better , learned a lot and we will move on.”
“… It was good to get the first district game out of the way against Betsy Layne and do it with a win. Girls played well and got us back on track to head to Myrtle Beach.”
“…/ The Myrtle Beach trip is always a huge week for our program. It’s been a few years since we have been down that way due to covid. The kids are excited as well as the fans. This week is a great time for our little town to spend all week together playing ball and visiting as we watch both the baseball and softball team play. We will come back a better team not just because of the games we play, but because of the time we will spend together! Tough competition will sharpen the iron! Plus the food will be good and I’m sure Kensley will like that. Haha.”
