  • GCHS relay team advances to state meet

    They’ve known each other since they started running cross country together.

    The foursome of sophomore Chris Ellis and juniors Brandon Gouge, Dylan Jackson and Michael Schultz know each other so well that they feel comfortable enough to tell each other when they need to step it up.

    That drive to be their best helped Grant County’s 4x800-meter relay team qualify for the state meet.

    The team advanced to state with a time of 8:38.38 on May 29.

    The two teams came into the season with different expectations, but believe they can send athletes to the state meet.

    Grant County:

  • Edmondson, Prokopchak qualify for state

    It didn’t matter to the Williamstown athletes that they were in their first year of the program.

    It didn’t matter that other schools had more experience and knew what to expect when it came to compete at the region meet.

    All that mattered was doing their best and seeing how their performances stacked up against the best from the region on May 29.

    Sophomore Blake Edmondson and freshman Alex Prokopchak did their best and qualified for state in the long jump and the 800-meter run, respectively.
