    The Grant County softball team waited three weeks to restart their game against Walton-Verona.

    “I told my players that it would be a slugfest,” coach Ott Reed said. “Whoever was hitting the hardest would win the game.”

    The game originally started on April 13, as the Lady Bearcats took a 2-0 lead after the top of the first inning. Rain delayed the game for three weeks before the two teams matched up again.

    The girls did both as they defeated Walton-Verona 13-7 for the championship. The team dedicated their season to the memory of Jay “Big Daddy” McCoy, who passed away after their second game of the season. McCoy was the father of Kelcie McCoy, a player on the team.
