Lawrence Co. Head Coach Chandler Thompson
“… Always great to start the season with a win. We are very thankful for that. It will be good to go back and watch this film and learn from some of our mistakes. Careless fouls and box outs have to be better however, there are also a lot of positives that came from it. We had some young guys really step up and do some good things for us. Several kids hit shots when we really needed them. I’m proud of our kids for finding a way to win.
“…On to the next one!”
