  • Braves fall to Bearcats 5-4

    The Grant County Braves fell a hit short of making a comeback win against the Walton-Verona Bearcats, losing 5-4 on a breezy evening, April 23 at Grant County High School.

    It was a pitcher’s duel through the first four innings of the game, as Braves pitcher Wyatt Glass had a shutout going.

    “Wyatt has been great for us,” Braves coach Darrick Lee said after the game. “We are just making bad choices defensively. Glass is a knuckleball pitcher, so that means there are going to be a lot of groundballs so we just have to field them.”

  • Braves sweep Williamstown

    On a cold, dreary, wet Saturday, the Braves and Demons were still able to keep the rivalry going with Grant County defeating Williamstown 13-8, April 21 at Grant County High School.

    The game was originally scheduled for 11 a.m. at Williamstown High School, but was moved to GCHS at noon, due to having a tarp on the infield and being playable. Grant was the visiting team and Williamstown was the home team.

    It wasn’t an easy start for Williamstown senior Isaac Alger, as he surrendered five runs in the first inning.
