BEATTYVILLE, Ky. (WYMT) - It was a tough season last year for the Lee County Bobcats, as they finished their campaign without a victory, going 0-30.
This year, the Bobcats say they worked on their strength in the off-season and look to find more success this year.
"I really think that we have improved a whole lot since last season, so I just want to see everybody else get better, and even if we can't have a winning record this year, it would mean a lot for me to watch these guys in a few years and be winning games," said senior Wesley Evans.
"We all definitely hit the weights this summer, it's a lot more strength than it was last year, we didn't have the size to fight inside last year, that is really what we have been working on this summer and I think we have improved a lot in that," said sophomore Donald Napier.
"Defense and strength," said sophomore Keagan Wilder. "We've worked all summer for defense by working on our feet, sliding and for strength we've lifted weights all summer."
"So what's changed, we've got more maturity, working harder," said head coach Chuck Perdue. "We see a lot of things in practice that I think we are going to apply to the floor and be a lot better this year."
