Lawrence Co. Head Coach Kenny Horn
“… To even be in the game after committing 8 errors was really crazy to me at Johnson Central. We were down 3 going into the 7th inning and took the lead, but gave it away in the bottom half of the 7th. I made a few bad decisions that really hurt us, I’ve got to be better.”
“… To say I was happy with the team after the Ashland game would be a huge understatement! We were swinging it really well. It was a much better outing than the last. It’s coming down to the end of the season and we need play like this all the time!”
