Long-time coach Tony Clouse is excited about a deeper roster that the Braves can utilize this season in a competitive league race.

“We doubled our numbers this season, with some that have come in with the desire to get better and learn the game,” Clouse said.

“We look to compete for the league title, but we also know that Teays Valley, Bloom-Carroll and Circleville will all be formidable.
“I want to see us get better throughout the season and be competitive in every match.”

We are very excited for the season to begin.”
