  • Lady Braves best Lady Demons in straight sets

    When the Grant County Lady Braves visited Williamstown on Aug. 25, it was a battle of epic proportions.
    Grant County swept the Lady Demons in three straight games by the score of 25-12, 25-13 and 25-15.  

    It was David verses Goliath, senior leadership verses youth.  
    The Lady Braves boast a 7-1 record so far this year primarily due to the experience of their players.  

    Williamstown fell to a record of 1-4 primarily due to their inexperience.  
    But the near-capacity crowd saw some good volleyball.
