Lawrence Co. Head Coach Melinda Feltner
“… Big district win last night. We are proud of our girls effort against a tough Betsy Layne team. We would extend the lead to 10 and they never stopped playing. They kept coming right back at us. We were finally able to pull away in the end of the third quarter. Last week on the road we really struggled defensively and was out rebounded 2 of the 3 games. We stressed in practice this week the importance of defense and rebounding. I was proud of the girls efforts tonight in those areas of the game. We have another big district game on Friday. We will get our game plan ready and get prepared for Floyd Central.”
