  • County-rival tennis programs face each other for first time

    For the first time in both schools programs, the Williamstown Lady Demons girls tennis team and the Grant County girls tennis team faced each other on the court April 7 at Webb Park in Williamstown.

    Even though Williamstown swept the matches, Grant County is working on improving in their first year of the program after they were appointed a program at a September 2010 board meeting.

    The Lady Braves program has five girls on the team, junior Sydney Tencza, sophomore Courtney Elliott, sophomore Emily Samuel, freshman Meghan Cross and freshman Courtney Ford.

  • Lady Braves slam Lady Demons 12-1

    Major League Baseball Hall of Fame pitcher Warren Spahn once said, “Hitting is timing. Pitching is upsetting timing.”

    The Grant County Lady Braves softball team, took Spahn’s words to task, as they defeated their county rival Williamstown 12-1, April 7 at Grant County High School.

    The win moved the Lady Braves record to 7-4 on the season.

    Even with the win, Grant County coach Ott Reed said the team needs to improve on  plate discipline.

  • Braves honor their seniors
  • Goe to soar with the Eagles in 2012

    Grant County Braves senior pitcher Aaron Goe already has a spot waiting for him on the list of pitchers for the 2012 season at Morehead State University.

    Goe signed his national letter of intent in November, which gave him a sense of security going into his senior year at GCHS.

    “It feels really good knowing where I am going,” he said. “It is more relaxed for me. If I make a bad play here, I still know I have a spot with Morehead.”

  • Softball rivalry set for some PING!

    Mark it on your calendars.

    The first of a two-game series between the Grant County Lady Braves and the Williamstown Lady Demons will be April 7 at Grant County High School. First pitch is set for 5:30 p.m.

    Last season, the Lady Braves swept the series, not allowing a run in either game.

    This season, Lady Demons’ senior shortstop Tori Wilhoit hopes for a different outcome.

    “I am tired of them sweeping us, so my goal is to beat them both times and end my last year sweeping them,” she said.
