Lawrence Co. Head Coach Chandler Thompson
“… SC was a great trip for our team. Although we didn’t win as many games as we wanted to, we learned and grew from each one. Our first two games we played teams that were much bigger than us and had to learn to battle physically with them. These were teams that we needed to see mid season like this. It will give us a chance to reflect and grow as a team. We are thankful we were able to come away with a win on the last day and looking forward to competing in the 2A next week.”
