  • Lady Braves lose heartbreaker to Simon Kenton

    First, a quick history lesson: Coming into the Dec. 11 game in Independence the Lady Braves had dropped their last five games to Simon Kenton by a combined score of 342-162.
    Many thought this game wouldn’t be any different.

    But, nobody told this year’s Grant County Lady Braves that memo.
    From the beginning of the game, this was a different contest.  The Lady Braves jumped out to an early lead thanks to some good ball movement and pinpoint shooting by guards Macy Wright, EJ Kearns and Shelby Harmeyer.
