  • First win down, more to go

    Patrick Spoonamore and the Williamstown Demons came out firing in their first game of the season against Carroll County. Pushing tempo and forcing turnovers, the Demons earned a 74-58 win.

    Spoonamore scored 31 points to lead the Demons but credits his teammates for giving him scoring opportunities.

    “The basket looked like I could throw a car in it,” Spoonamore said. “It feels amazing, but I couldn’t have done it without the passing of my teammates. They gave me the ball so I could score. We played as a team.”

  • Seniors set standard for football program

    The Grant County High School football seniors leave the program as the winningest class, but also made their mark in other ways.

    “They are the first group I had since their freshman year,” coach Mike Davis said. “They are a big deal for me. I’ve watched them grow and develop and we’ve formed a special bond. They have set a standard that we will hopefully continue and the underclassmen can follow.”

    “It’s an awesome accomplishment,” Rump said. “I work hard to be the best player I can and it’s paid off.”

  • GCHS boys make history during time on team

    With hard work and determination, the Grant County High School boys’ cross country team have become a team to be taken seriously.

    That is due in part to the efforts of the seniors, who have spent their high school careers working to put the Braves in position to succeed for years to come. Each senior started running because they were inspired by a relative, except for Dustin Sullivan, who had another reason all together.

    “I ran because I was chubby, so I joined,” Sullivan said.
