  • 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.

  • Correction

    In the March 24 issue, the spring sports preview was to include Victoria Clark and Taylor Souder on the GCHS softball team. The News apologizes for these errors.

  • Lady Demons tennis a work in progress

    Programs that are brand new or still fresh have adjustments to make in order to be successful.

    For the Williamstown Lady Demons tennis program, it is still a work in progress as they lost to Simon Kenton March 28 at Webb Park in Williamstown.

    “I was hoping to see better matches today, but we are still improving and are a very young team,” Williamstown coach Sean Binder said.

    Lady Demons senior Amanda Wilson lost her singles match with Lady Pioneer Katie French 8-4.

  • Braves place second at first meet

    The Grant County High School track team placed second overall in the first-annual Grant County, Owen County, Pendleton County, Walton-Verona Gold Medal Event March 24 at GCHS.

    The Braves 4X800 meter relay team won by 15 seconds over WVHS. Members of the relay team include seniors Michael Schultz, Brandon Gouge, Dylan Jackson and junior Tyler Edmondson.

    For Schultz, it was a nice mark to the beginning of the season.

  • Goe has it going

    Former Major League pitcher Bob Veale once said, “Good pitching beats good hitting and vice versa.”

    For Grant County senior pitcher Aaron Goe, he was able to take care of both as he almost single-handedly beat Lloyd Memorial 5-1 March 26 at Grant County High School.

    “I thought my command was good and my off-speed pitches were helping me,” Goe said after the game. “The defense behind me really helped too.”

    Goe pitched a complete game (seven innings), only allowing one run and striking out 12 Juggernauts.
