President Donald Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, Members of the Coronavirus Task Force Press Briefing Remarks

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – THE PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP: Thank you very much. I think this is going to be a very important conference and I’ll get to that toward the middle, but I have a few things to report. And I want to thank you all for being here.

And I have to say, I think with social distancing that the media has been much nicer. I don’t know what it is — all these empty — these in-between chairs. We probably shouldn’t have anybody sitting behind you either. You know, you should probably go back. But I love it. It’s so much nicer. But I shouldn’t say that because you’ll get me now.

U.S. President Donald J. Trump

Rossview Lady Hawks Defeat Lebanon 56-39, Advance to Region 5-AAA Semifinals

 

Rossview High School HawksClarksville, TN – It is no secret the Rossview Lady Hawks potent offense goes through the post and the Lebanon Lady Blue Devils executed a solid plan to slow down the Lady Hawks post game. However, the Lady Hawks proved their defense is equally as potent and took advantage of Devilette turnovers to win their Region 5-AAA quarterfinal matchup against Lebanon Friday night at Rossview High School, 56-39.

“It was a physical game. I thought we got knocked around a little bit. This time of year, it’s kind of what you expect,“ Lady Hawks head coach Justin Woods said. “We have hung our hat on our defense all year. I didn’t think tonight was our best defensive effort, but we got enough stops, turned those stops into transition baskets, to pull it out tonight.”
