  • Cat Attack 10-14-09

     Last Wednesday night a tent revival broke out in Lexington. No, I’m not talking about a local church event, but rather “Camp Cal” or if that is not team oriented enough for you “Cat Camp.” The line of those waiting for tickets to this year’s Big Blue Madness began forming in earnest on Wednesday and by the time tickets actually were distributed on Saturday morning there were over 400 tents encircling Memorial Coliseum. Tickets for the chance to be one of the first people to see this year’s Cats were gone in just over an hour at

  • Lady Braves defeat Mason in district tourney

    The Grant County girls’ soccer team lost in the first round to Mason County in last year’s district tournament.

  • Lady Braves earn tie on senior night

    The Grant County girls’ soccer team trailed by a goal late into their senior night game against Western Hills.

    Fortunately for the seniors, a freshman helped them earn a tie instead of a loss.

    Freshman Gwen MacAdams tied the game with four minutes left on a second chance shot as the Lady Braves played Western Hills to a 1-1 tie on Oct. 5.

  • Braves fall to Bishop Brossart

    Grant County boys’ soccer coach Dempsey Schlueter has been preaching to his team that to have success, they will have to step up their intensity.

    Against Bishop Brossart on Oct. 1, he saw them play with more passion, but the Braves fell 1-0.

    “We came out and competed,” Schlueter said. “We showed a lot of intensity against Bishop Brossart, but we have a lot left in us. We didn’t bring our best game, but we showed we can compete with a quality team and give ourselves a chance to win.”

  • Under pressure

    Junior Cory Kearns has stood alone in the net twice this season.

    Kearns was the only line of defense between his goal and the opponent., not once, but twice during the Dry Ridge Toyota Invitational Cup on Sept. 19.

    Kearns stood tall and helped the Braves come away with first place.

    With the district tournament starting for the boys’ and girls’ teams on Oct. 12, Kearns and his female counterpart, freshman Mackenzie Tucker, might have to deal with the pressure that comes from being a goalie and the game on the line.
