    The Williamstown Demons boy’s basketball team gave it all they had against Simon Kenton on Feb. 23, but came up on the short end of the score, losing 85-70 to the home team in the District 32 matchup.
    It was a big turnaround from their previous meeting with the Pioneers where the Demons fell at home by a 23-point deficit.
    WHS Coach Harden Roger heaped praise upon his young team for their tenacity.  “They have a never quit attitude,” he said. “We’ve instilled that in them all year long to never quit.”

    But that would be it for the scoring in the first quarter for Grant.  
    The Braves would go 5:30 minutes without scoring another basket and trailed 15-5 after one quarter.

    Back-to-back district championships had not been accomplished by a Braves team in 25 years dating back to the 1988-1989 season.

  • Lady Braves fall in districts

    The 32nd district basketball tournament was held last week at Simon Kenton.

    The Lady Braves were seeded fourth so they inherited the unenviable task of a first round game against the number one seed and home team Simon Kenton Lady Pioneers.

    Coming into the game, there was a sense of uncertainty as to which Lady Braves team would show up; the team that led the Pioneers until the waning moments of the first meeting this season or the team that didn’t show up in a blowout game in the second meeting.

  • Grant County Braves defeat WV 53...

    On a cold winter night, the Grant County Braves defeated the Walton Verona Bearcats by a score of 53-47.  
    The District 32 battle was played at Simon Kenton High School on Feb. 24.  

    Prior to the game, both teams introduced seniors and their parents because both senior nights had been cancelled due to bad weather.
    The cold weather came inside a packed gymnasium for the game.  
    It translated into cold shooting and turnovers for both teams throughout the first three quarters of the game.
