Lawrence Co. Head Coach Chandler Thompson
“… Great team effort tonight from our team. We had five guys in double figures and our bench gave us great minutes as well. Overall it was a collective team effort and I couldn’t be anymore proud of our guys. They weren’t going to accept anything but a win tonight and if we can keep that attitude, I like our chances.
“…Hope to see everyone in Louisa in the Dawg Pound Wednesday night and Thursday night to support both our girls and boys in the district championship!”
