Lawrence Co. Head Coach Travis Feltner
“… Huge win for our kids. Overall we’ve steadily improved throughout the year, obviously with some hiccups along the way. But we’ve positioned ourselves with chance to secure the 1 seed heading into post season play.”
“… Will Lafferty did an outstanding job on the mound with several highlights defensively behind him. Probably none bigger than two big plays at 3rd base by Eli Fletcher, plays you can’t simulate and practice but just great instincts.”
“…We are one win away from being the number 1 seed and will look to do that next week at Floyd Central.”
