Kamiakin Braves Thrive On Competition

Posted: Updated:

KENNEWICK, Wash. -- The Kamiakin Braves have marched their way to the final 4 in State 3A baseball thanks to one word, competition.

The Braves keep it competive in every part of practice and that has translated when it counts, in games.

The Braves hope to move into the state championship game Friday, when they take on Mount Si in Tacoma.

One thing is for sure, the Braves will compete.

"It could be ping pong," said Braves Head Coach Ryan Carter. "Our team dinners are competitive and that's just the way that [the players] are. We've got the corner of the market, the market cornered with 5'10", 175 pound kids. But, they are competitive and they have a good time. That's our expectation, to go out and compete and win."
