  • Lady Braves make some adjustments

    With the snow and ice in Grant County, the Lady Braves are still working out the kinks, practicing for a county rival match up with Williamstown Dec. 17.

    “The team is spending a lot of time getting better defensively,” Lady Braves coach Darrell Guffey said.

    One of the adjustments that the Lady Braves has had to make is moving junior guard Erica Stith to point guard in the absence of eighth grade point guard Macy Wright.

    “Wright suffered a broken wrist,” Guffey said. “She will be out for three to four weeks.”
