  • Lady Braves send seniors off with win

    It was a letter written by seniors Katelyn Roy and Taryn Biddle that brought Lady Braves softball coach Ott Reed back to coach the team.

    Now it was time for Reed and the rest of the Lady Braves to bid farewell to Biddle and Roy as they faced Trimble County for senior night May 12 at Grant County High School.

    “I left in 2007, and those two wrote me a personal note,” Reed said. “When the job was opened the following year I decided to come back for Roy and Biddle.”

  • 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.

  • Kennedy named new girls’ basketball coach

    A new era in Williamstown Lady Demons’ basketball has begun, as Kasey Kennedy was named as Mark Wilhoit’s replacement in April.

    “I’m only 25-years-old and for them to think of me this way, I feel like they knew that I was ready for the position and I am ready for the tasks at hand,” she said.

    Kennedy graduated from Walton-Verona High School in 2004 and went on to play collegiate basketball at Midway College, before having to sit out her entire senior season. Kennedy teaches English at Williamstown Middle School.
