  • GCHS cheerleaders aim for another region title

    The Grant County varsity cheerleaders knew that to be at their best they would have to shake off their nerves.

    Last week while the squad prepared for the JKD Competition at Bourbon County High School, they had several drops that they knew they could not afford in an actual competition, especially because the KAPOS eighth region competition was a week later.

    The girls were able to stay focused and earned first place in the medium division on Jan. 23.

    On the verge of becoming the #1 ranked team in the country for the first time since 2003 with a win over Arkansas, the Kentucky Wildcats delivered their most dominating performance of the season to remain the lone unbeaten in all the land. Coach John Calipari, who has been known to downplay the play of this team at times this season, described the performance this way. "I think we would have smashed anyone in the country today. That's not arrogance, but that's as good as we've played for the first 20 minutes. We would have beaten a lot of teams today."

  • Stith wins state Adopt-A-Highway poster contest

    Falling just short last year, Taylor Stith was determined to win first place in the 2008 Adopt-A-Highway poster contest.

    That determination paid off when the junior at Williamstown High School was selected the winner of the 15 to 17-year-old age group.

    “I was really surprised,” she said. “I looked at everybody’s work who was in the class and they were 10 times better than they were last year. I was thinking the whole time that I wasn’t going to place. I was really excited.”

  • Cat Attack 1-19-10

    Aww...now that’s more like it. Kentucky’s last five trips to Florida had left it with nothing but a bad sunburn and five straight losses. But the Wildcats turned the tables on the Gators and were the ones doing the frying. My favorite t-shirt from college read “Gator Tail is best when it’s Kentucky Fried.” I couldn’t agree more.
