The Grant County Braves fell victim to the Simon Kenton Pioneers on April 10 by a score of 3-0 and to Bourbon County on April 12 by a score of 5-0, but on their home turf they beat the Walton-Verona Bearcats 12-0 on April 15.


“We’re 7 -9 on the season and could very well be 9-7,” said Head Coach Darrin Robinson.
Robinson said the team is learning daily and getting better at the little things they need to in order to win games.
The Braves are focusing on hitting.

“We continue to do things that are important, but if there is one weak point right now it is hitting,” Robinson said.
Robinson said he’s had several players who have surprised him this season.

“Blake Dills can stretch his singles to doubles. Jordan Martin has the ability to steal home. Conrad Jaconette has shown he can hit at the varsity level and Lucas Alger is probably the most under-rated player in Northern Kentucky and he has had to step up to catching at the plate and has yet to disappoint,” Robinson said.

He said the Braves have one of the toughest schedules in the state and their record doesn’t reflect their abilities.
“We will continue to play tough teams and continue to get better. It will show come districts. Mark my word,” Robinson said.
Tough opponents include Woodford County, East Jessamine, Harrison and Bourbon counties.

The Braves will face Collins at 6 p.m. on April 18, followed by Bourbon County at 5:30 p.m. on April 19 and Bryan Station at 11:30 a.m. on April 20. All three games are at GCHS.
