  • Weather puts a damper on sports

    For Grant County High School Athletic Director Scott Shipp and Williamstown High School Athletic Director Todd Dupin, the record rainfall has caused issues with the spring sports programs.

    “We’ve had several events canceled and rescheduled,” Dupin said. “We have only had 19 softball games and 13 baseball games. At this point in the year, we should be in the low 20’s for both sports.”

    Even with the cancellations, Dupin realizes it is just a part of Mother Nature.
