New-look Braves stay with what's worked in past

La Conner cleans up on hoop rivals at Soap Lake
Short-handed La Conner was able to strong-arm its share of foes at summer basketball camp in Soap Lake.
A makeshift Braves lineup won five games while building team chemistry going forward during a week-long stay in Eastern Washington.
La Conner was hobbled – both literally and figuratively – when Harley Hulbert re-aggravated a knee injury and Scottie Miller and Trey Casey were delayed in arriving due to a crab season opening.
