  • Worth the wait

    Grant County and Williamstown were each prepared for a taste of district competition to end the regular season.

    With a 9-1 win on May 15, the Braves earned a regular season sweep over rival Williamstown.

    “It’s a great win,” GCHS coach Justin Hollingsworth said. “We took advantage of our opportunities for a change and I’m pleased with a solid all-around good game.”

    Dillon Pelfrey and Aaron Goe started the game with solo homeruns for an early 2-0 lead for Grant County.

  • Lady Demons season comes to a close

    The Williamstown softball team got into a rhythm , winning four of their final five games, just as their season ended.

    But the Lady Demons ran out of time, as they fell to Simon Kenton 3-2 in the district tournament on May 18.

    “My girls played as hard as I could have asked them to play,” coach T.J. West said. “We had nothing to lose. There was pressure on Simon Kenton and we played an errorless ball game. We played hard. Unfortunately, there’s got to be a loser and it was us.”

  • Demons fall to Bearcats in district tournament

    This season, the Williamstown baseball team has battled inconsistency when they had runners in scoring position.

    They twice had the bases loaded against Walton-Verona in the district tournament, but came away with only one run in a 10-2 loss on May 18.

    “Our goal this year was to be competitive in the district and we kind of let that down here at the end,” coach Aaron Biddle said. “It kills us when we get the bases loaded and don’t score. It’s unfortunate, but we’ve had a good year and stayed competitive.”

  • Lady Braves earn win on senior night

    Heading into their senior night game against Notre Dame, the Grant County softball team had won five straight games.

    The Lady Braves continued with their winning ways, coming away with a 4-1 victory over Notre Dame on May 13.

    “I thought that was the best defensive game we played all year,” coach Ott Reed said. “We were stinging the ball at the plate and manufactured our runs.”
