  • GCHS raises money for Japan relief efforts

    As Major League Baseball and UNICEF have come together to raise money for the efforts in the Japan Earthquake/Tsunami relief, Grant County High School took their own action April 14, as they held an art auction and sporting events.

    One dollar of each gate entry, and the art auction raised $86, while teachers who wore jeans for a $1 raised $48 and the game admissions raised $77, for a total of $211.

    “We hope to raise more by selling more artwork in school,” Melissa Wallace, GCHS’ media specialist, said.

  • Braves start season 5-1

    The Grant County Braves are on their fastest start since 2008, when they started the season 9-2.

    That season, the Braves made it to the 8th region tournament, falling to North Oldham 8-1.

    Even with the loss, Grant County was second in the region only surrendering 99 runs in 25 games.

    This year, the Braves in six games have allowed only eight runs and that can be contributed to the starting pitching, including senior pitcher Aaron Goe.
