  • Demons season ends on sour note

    The size and speed of the Pioneers was too much for the Demons as they lost 73-37 in the first round of the 32nd District Tournament Feb. 21 at Simon Kenton High School in Independence.

    Simon Kenton started the game on a 13-0 run coasting to the finish in a game that was never close.

    Williamstown coach Steve Sigmon was unhappy with the team’s performance right off the bat, as he called a timeout just a minute into the game  with the score just 2-0.

  • Lady Braves fall short on Senior Night

    As the pre-game ceremony began for the Lady Braves seniors Brittany Hearn, Logan Kidwell and Seneca Sullivan, it marked the end of all of the players that were on the team when coach Darrell Guffey came to Grant County in 2006.

    For Guffey, it is tough to see them go.

    “They are such great girls,” he said. “They are special to us and they will always be in our hearts.”

  • Braves bid farewell to Blackburn

    At the beginning of the basketball season, the Grant County Braves basketball program had three seniors on the team.

    At Senior Night Feb. 17, the Braves basketball program bid farewell to Blackburn and seniors from the wrestling team and cheerleading squad before the Braves/Juggernauts game.

    For Blackburn, it was a somber moment.

  • Biddle signs softball letter with Asbury University

    Taryn Biddle will trade the blue and gold for purple and white as she signed her national letter of intent to play softball at Asbury University Feb. 17.

    “It feels really good,” she said after the signing. “I have wanted this since I started playing and now I signed the paper and it doesn’t feel real.”

    Her decision to choose Asbury was being able to meet Asbury coach Larry McCullough her sophomore season and being able to practice with the Lady Eagles.

    “I’ve never had a team that wouldn’t listen  like that,” Williamstown coach Steve Sigmon said after the game. “It is what it is.”
