LMS Head Coach Matt Fitzpatrick
“… This is a great group of girls with a high ceiling for their overall potential. Some will make an impact early at the next level and I’m excited to see that unfold. They have been fun to coach this year and I’ve enjoyed watching the individual development as well the team growth.
“…They play unselfish offensively, and hard-nosed on the defensive end. I appreciate the competitive mindset they step on the court with every day. I have been blessed to Coach some really good teams at LMS like last year’s OVC champions, and I would expect this team to have a legitimate chance to accomplish that goal once again. The future of LC Girls basketball is bright.”
