    The Braves welcomed Lloyd Memorial to the Grant County High gym for a showdown on Feb. 14.
    The Braves sent the Juggernauts home with a 64 – 43 loss.

    Coach Jim Hicks said that his team would have to come out and play good team defense, with Lloyd being a quick transitioning team and having some good and quick players. ”They have a four-year starter, Meco Carter,” said Hicks. ”He is lighting quick so we are going to have to do a good job of getting back in transition and protecting the ball.”

  • Braves end Williamstown’s season

    The Williamstown Demons and Grant County Braves boys basketball teams met on Feb. 18 in the first round of the 2013 32nd District Tournament.

    The stakes were high when the cross-town rivals faced off, each with the goal of ending the other team’s season. Leading up to the game, the odds leaned in favor of Grant County whose season record of 23-4 qualified them for the top spot in the region.

    In my defense, I had just come from undergoing a medical test done under sedation, which may or may not have loosened my tongue.
    Whatever the reason, I said something that embarrassed my husband.

    We had stopped at a local restaurant for a burger. I ordered the thickest, beefiest, cheesiest burger on the menu, plus fries and my husband ordered a veggie burger and a salad.

  • Grant County High School receives new laptops

    Today’s teens have the whole world at their fingertips. Literally.

    That’s why this year, Grant County High School allowed teachers and students to utilize their own personal digital devices (smart phones, tablets, readers, laptops) to supplement learning in the classroom.

    This decision was called “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD.)
    Grant County connected with Everfi and Neustar, two education partners in this digital effort.
