May 17, 2012

    FORT WAYNE— A day removed from a stunning 1-0 upset from East Noble, the Braves vented their frustrations on the lowly North Side Redskins in a 14-5 rout on Wednesday night during a non-conference battle.
    The loss to East Noble put a damper on the Braves' NHC hopes, but Bellmont is not faltering as their main goal has always been a sectional title and beyond. The win against North Side was just another stepping stone for the heavy hitters in the Braves' lineup who are now hungry for playoff baseball.
