  • The significance of the set

    To start a play in volleyball, a team must play defense first and make sure they can return the ball.

    The next play determines whether or not they’ll be able to attack or continue playing defensively.

    That play is called a set and if it is executed properly, it allows a team to set the tone for a match.

    The district tournament starts on Oct. 12 and will give Grant County and Williamstown the chance to show their ability to set the ball and their offensive attack.

  • W-town hosts CC invitational

    While Williamstown cross country coach Michelle Whaley was busy coordinating the Williamstown Invitational, junior Steven Bradford was busy cheering on his teammates and giving them tips as they ran their races.

    Bradford took enough time to prepare himself for his own race, taking third in the boys’ varsity race with a time of 17:32.7 despite battling a cramp in his side.

    “My race wasn’t as good as I wanted it to be,” Bradford said. “I wanted to break 17 minutes, but I’ll get it next race.”

  • Kellam wins regional

    Bundled up for the cold, wet weather, Grant County freshman Sarah Kellam set a goal of making 11 pars over the course of her round in the regional tournament.

    As she walked off the 18th green, she had no idea how her score held up against others at the tournament, but she was disappointed that she fell one par short of her goal.

    She had a little consolation because with her score of 76, Kellam took first place by one stroke at the regional tournament at Perry Park Country Club on Sept. 29.

  • GCHS runners race under the lights

    Looking for a change of pace, the Grant County High School cross country teams decided to sleep in.

    The Braves were able to because instead of waking to race early in the morning, they were going to run at night under the bright lights at the Adidas Saturday Night Lights IV in Centerville, Ohio on Sept. 26.

    “It was an experience that the runners will remember,” coach Marlon Kinsey. “They have worked hard and they deserved to have a little fun, but the main goal was to perform at our best. Running at night is a unique experience.”

  • Singing, dancing, living

    If you see me driving around Grant County, there is a 95 percent chance I’m singing in my car.

    If you see me leaving the Grant County News office, there’s probably a 75 percent chance I’m whistling a song that’s stuck in my head.

    But there is always a 100 percent chance that I’ve always got music on my mind.

    Music is something that I am passionate about. I love getting the chance to hear new music. It’s not that I’m just hearing a new song, but I get someone else’s perspective on life.
