  • Braves win one, lose two in...

    Over the Christmas break, the Grant County Braves traveled to Coral Springs, Florida, to participate in the Kruel Holiday Classic.

    During the road trip, the Braves put together what is likely their most impressive three-game stretch of the young season against a trio of teams that would almost surely rank among the best in Kentucky.
    And while the Braves won only one of the three road games, that does not take away from how well the team played and the improvements that continue to be made under first-year head coach Brandon Grammer.

  • Braves beat Demons

    Getting their first look at the Grant County Braves and new head basketball coach Brandon Grammer, the hometown faithful had no option but to like what they saw as the Braves led from start to finish in a 93-78 win over Holy Cross on Dec. 7.
    Aaron Hicks and Seth Adkins exploded for a combined 52 points for Grant County. The pair hit seven 3-pointers and was good on 16-of-20 free throw attempts.
    Hicks led the Braves’ charge with game-highs of 27 points and nine rebounds. The senior forward hit five 3-pointers and was good on all six of his free throws.

  • Demons knock off Menifee Co.

    Continuing to show signs of maturity, the Williamstown Demons traveled to the Bellevue Swauger Holiday Classic and took another step forward, giving the competition there all it could handle while making an impression.
    Williamstown won just one of its three games in the tournament, but that one win was a big one for the program as the Demons knocked off Menifee County 48-46 in overtime in arguably the best, most exciting game, of the event.

  • Lady Braves lose squeaker to N....

    Watching his team miss easy shot after easy shot, Grant County Coach Shawn West suffered his own personal ‘nightmare before Christmas’ in the Lady Braves’ most recent game on Dec. 20 at North Oldham.
    Grant County missed a total of 19 layups in the 54-53 overtime loss.
    “It was a coach’s dream to get the shots we got, but we didn’t finish when we got them,” West said.
