  • Snow kidding - spring break is going, going, gone

    Grant County Schools officially kissed spring break goodbye by calling off school March 3 as more snow and ice covered roads.
    The district also canceled classes Tuesday, March 4, marking the 22nd snow day this school year for Grant County Schools.

    The original last day for Grant County Schools was May 14.
    Although the district’s website lists the last day for students as “undetermined,” Jim Lacey, director of pupil personnel, said the end day is now Monday, June 9, barring anymore missed days.

  • High school hoopla!

    Winners of nine of their last 12 games, including five straight, the Grant County Braves enter Region 8 Tournament play with momentum on their side.

  • GCHS sends 3 wrestlers to state

    While they didn’t bring home the gold, the Grant County High School wrestling team was well represented at the state championship meet held two weeks ago at the All Tech Arena at the Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington.
    Seniors Brady Fryman, Austin Gripshover and Joey Roundtree put together impressive displays at the state meet. Fryman won his first match before being defeated, while Gripshover and Roundtree more than held their own before falling.
    In the end, the competition was just too experienced for the Braves, who are only in their fourth year of existence.
