Lawrence Co. Head Coach Travis Feltner
“… It’s go time now and you want to see your horses going like that. I’ve said it many years Bryce Blevins is the ultimate competitor. He has never taken the mound that I don’t think we are going to win and I mean that. I don’t care who we are playing, obviously his record is not perfect but it’s pretty darn close. For him to get a no-hitter against a team like Wheelersburg is pretty special. They have a great program and tradition in Ohio. He was a Bulldog tonight.”
“… Luke Patton has been a stud the last two outings. He has been everything that we need. I have a lot of confidence in him right now. To win a region you have to have that. To have two studs at the top of your rotation, we feel really good with only a week left before postseason.”
“… Great week for us going 4-0 against some quality opponents.”
Lawrence Co. Senior Bryce Blevins
“… He told me that I wasn’t going back out for the seventh inning and I told him that I wanted to finish it and then me and Coach Feltner had a good talk and I told him I wanted to finish it as well. It’s been a great year so far and this was such a memorable moment.”
“… No matter where I pitch I’m going to compete. You can’t control the mound or the field conditions you just have to come out each outing and give your team a chance to win.”
“… Coach Feltner told us the beginning of the week that it was going to be a challenge for us every night. We sat down and talked about this was going to be the beginning of our run. It was a great week to finish 4-0.”
