Lawrence Co Head Coach Travis Feltner
“… Good to get two district wins under our belt early. Floyd Central seems to always play us tough through the years.”
“… In Game 1 we came out rolling and seem to just take our foot off the petal offensively. Credit them for chipping away and we were fortunate to come out with a win on the road.”
“… Game 2 I thought Jake did a great job on the mound of attacking the strike zone and we took care of business pretty quick. We had double digit hits in both games and really found a lot of barrels up and down the lineup.”
“… I believe when the season gets settled in this will be a very dynamic and dangerous offensive ball club.”
