Lawrence Co. Head Coach Melinda Feltner
“… I was very proud of our kids for the bounce back win on Friday evening. Against Johnson Central we didn’t match their physicality in the first half and dug ourself a hole. We battled and competed better in the 2nd half and gave ourselves a chance to win but ultimately ran out of time. We have to learn from this experience and be ready to play from the tip. We did out score them in the second half so we made progress. We just have to keep working.”
“ I was happy to see better intensity out of the gate on Friday night. We were able to put up 21 points in the first quarter and get ourselves rolling and that was brought on by a much better defensive effort. Much better effort in every aspect of the game. That’s what we want to see this early in the season is learning from our mistakes and getting better. We’re looking forward to this week. We head to Morgan County Tuesday and host our first District game at home Friday night against Betsy Layne.”
