Lawrence Co. Head Coach Kenny Horn
“… What a week. I learned a bunch about this team. First of all they can out eat any team I’ve had, they can play a pretty good game of Volleyball, and they are ruthless on the go cart track.”
“… On the field we played very well. Pitching and defense was on point only allowing 4 runs all week. Our bats started to break loose and I saw them start to come together as a team. Coach Jones did a great job with the JV kids this week. I also want to thank the LC fan base. They packed the stands for these kids and they noticed it. I look forward to this coming week as we play the 2A section at LC. I would like to invite everyone to come out and support these kids.”
