    After opening their season with a win, the Lady Braves had to wait a week before they played again.

    “This team came back and they were game ready,” coach Ott Reed said. “After I’ve given most of my teams in the past three or four days off, they were rusty, but this group was ready to play.”

  • Braves win two in a row

    Hoping to win consecutive games, the Grant County baseball team believed that a six-run lead in the seventh inning would be enough.

    It was just enough as the Braves held on for a 7-6 win over Newport on April 4.

    “I’m glad to get the win,” coach Justin Hollingsworth said. “We came close to giving it away at the top of the seventh because we didn’t make a few simple plays, but a win is a win and I’m happy with it.”

    Aaron Goe started on the mound for the Braves and was able to go six innings.
