  • Braves play in Wierwille Classic

    Grant County boys’ basketball coach Ron Kinmon knows the impact that coaches can have on their players.

    He experienced it firsthand with his college coach, Roland Wierwille, who cared more about developing good people than developing good basketball players. Kinmon played for Wierwille at Berea College.

    Last year, Kinmon talked to former teammates who now coach high school basketball and each brought their teams to Berea College for a series of preseason scrimmages.

  • Lady Braves leave mark on program

    It’s never easy for seniors to end the final season of their high school career.

    But the Grant County volleyball seniors can take solace in the fact that when their season ended, they were playing the best they had all season.

    Brittany Butler, Katie Gregg, Rachel Kitchens, Dawn Plunkett, Catie Prather and the Lady Braves came one set away from advancing to the district championship and a place in the region tournament, but the seniors know the important thing is that they worked hard to get there.

  • Lady Braves shake off rust in...

    After the first quarter of the season, the Grant County girls’ basketball team found themselves without any points.

    While shaking off first game jitters, the Lady Braves started slowly, trailing Owen County 10-0 after the first quarter.

    While they found offense in the final three quarters, they were unable to close the gap, falling 51-41 on Nov. 30.

  • On Target!

    On Aug. 6, 2002, Chris Breeden’s life changed forever.

    Breeden was involved in a single-vehicle accident while riding his motorcycle on Knoxville Road. He was in a drug-induced coma for two weeks after the accident. When he awoke, he found out he had shattered both of his femurs, had a compound fracture below his right knee, had broken his back, neck, jaw, nose, eye socket, had cracked his skull and tore nerves out of his spinal cord, leaving his right arm paralyzed.

    Breeden was in the hospital for 31 days.

  • West sets school record for...

    With eight assists in the Lady Demons’ season opener against West Jessamine, Williamstown junior Chelsea West set a school record.

    West, who has played at the varsity level since she was in seventh grade, surpassed Carol Robins’ school record that had stood for 19 years.

    The previous record was 449 and West now stands alone with 454.

  • Cat Attack 11-22-09

    Have any of you seen our defense, particularly our perimeter defense?  If so please return it to Rupp Arena in Lexington, Kentucky attention Coach John Calipari and every Kentucky Wildcats player.  If that doesnít work, maybe all of Big Blue Nation can ask for some defense for Christmas this year? I sure hope Santa Clause is a Kentucky fan.  

  • Cat Attack 11-21-09

    That large exhale you hear is the entire Big Blue Nation after Kentucky’s 72-70 last second victory on Monday night. The Cats didn’t dodge a bullet, they somehow managed to escape a heat-seeking missile. If the rest of the season is that exciting the entire state of Kentucky is going to need a Cardiologist, because I know my heart stopped several times during the last five minutes of the game. Fortunately, John Wall stepped up and sent his popularity to an all time high, if it’s possible to be higher, hitting the game-winning jumper with 0.5 seconds left.

  • Cat Attack 11-20-09

    The Kentucky Wildcats opened the regular season Friday night against the Morehead State Eagles in Rupp Arena.  The big story going into the game was not the beginning of the Calipari era or the kickoff of what should be an amazing season, but rather the absence of one John Wall from the lineup.  For the first twenty minutes that story line seemed very fitting, but the second half turned out to be all about fellow freshman Eric Bledsoe who helped carry the Cats to their first victory of the season 75-59.
