  • Lady Braves dominate Lexington Catholic

    During his time coaching the Grant County High School softball team, Ott Reed had never lead a team to a win against Lexington Catholic.

    That changed on April 8 after the Lady Braves defeated Lexington Catholic 12-3.

    “It’s a special win for this team,” Reed said. “But they came in flat. My players put the finger on them in the first inning and would not let up. The hitting is special on this team.”

    The Lady Braves scored in the first inning when Morgan McClure ripped a triple to score three runs.

  • Grant County sweeps season series against Williamstown

    “I’ve never had a hitting team like this,” Grant County coach Ott Reed said. “We decided we haven’t been aggressive enough. We don’t have a lot of speed, but when they start running the bases intelligently, it helps to be aggressive.”

    The Williamstown High School baseball team set a goal of advancing past the first round of the regional All “A” tournament.

    They made that goal a reality with a 4-1 win over Eminence on April 9.

    “I think we went in overly confident and got surprised a little bit,” coach Aaron Biddle said. “But it was a good team win. We need to keep winning and we want to beat some teams we’re not supposed to beat. That’s what we’re going to continue to work on, but we’re having fun and that’s the most important thing.”
