  • 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.

  • GCHS defeats Bourbon to bring home win

  • Family escapes as fire destroys Dry Ridge home

    John Courtney stood across the road from his burning home on Tuesday, Sept. 29. He alternated going into his neighbor’s house and standing outside in the cool air as fire fighters from three departments attempted to extinguish the blaze.

    Courtney said the fire started in the living room of the brick home he shared with his wife, Tina and sons, Grayson Dawson, 5 and Garriane Courtney, 3.

    “All I know is I saw a blanket on fire,” he said.

  • Thompson named Big Brother of Year

    It was always “guy time” when 18-year-old Kody Thompson and 9-year-old Collin Krist got together.

    Whether they were playing sports, taking a dip in the pool at Coney Island or watching the Reds game, the two grew close last school year.

    “He has a lot of the same interests as I do like sports and games,” Kody said about Collin. “He’s really competitive. I liked being able to show him how to have fun but go the right way about it. It’s not all about winning. I tried to teach him some things he could use later on in life.”
