  • Caldwell makes most of senior...

    When Kara Caldwell started her senior season playing for the Williamstown girls’ golf team, she set a goal of making it to state.

    Unfortunately, she wasn’t able to reach that goal, but still remembered why she loves the game.

    “I love the game of golf so much because it’s given me a lot of patience,” Caldwell said. “My family also plays and it’s a nice way to bond with them.”

    Clyde, Caldwell’s older brother, helped her learn the game as she has played for seven years.

  • Braves take second at state

    Throughout their season, the Grant County elementary boys’ cross country team strived to be the best by beating the best.

    They’ve taken on teams from across the state in meets and, after taking first at the Northern Kentucky elementary regional meet, stood with a perfect record.

    As they prepared to race in the KTCCCA Meet of Champions in Lexington, they wanted to prove they were a top team in the state.

  • The long path to the finish

    When runners stand at the starting line, they know that they have to make the most of their opportunity.

    They can rely on their teammates, but at the same time they compete as individuals, pushing themselves to their limits.

    There aren’t any timeouts or breaks for the runners to rest.

    For varsity runners, they run 3.1 miles and in each mile, they have a strategy as they try to finish as fast as possible.

  • Cat Attack 11-09-09

    The Wildcats’ performance, against what Coach Calipari said was improved competition, was exactly what I had expected for an exhibition game.  Scoring a lot of points, by a lot of different players, winning by a lot.  Overall, there was just a lot to like about this game.

  • Cat Attack 10-30-09

    I think it’s important to answer the most important question in every Wildcat fans mind right off the bat: yes, Kentucky was able to pull out a victory in the Blue-White Scrimmage on Wednesday night.  Granted, it would have been impossible for anything other than that to happen, but what’s a good story without some drama.

  • Cat Attack 11-3-09

    Monday night, the John Calipari era of Kentucky basketball officially kicked off with an exhibition game with Campbellsville University.  This was the team’s first chance to tangle with someone other than each other and quite honestly the results were pretty underwhelming.  I know, I know, I’m just another crazy UK fan that is complaining after a 34-point victory.  Well, like most UK fans, my expectation level for this team has been so high that I’m not sure it is possible to reach.  As Calipari has preached throughout the entire preseason and leading u

  • For love of the line

    Offensive linemen are often overlooked.

    When the ball is snapped, they are at the line of scrimmage, blocking for running backs and protecting their quarterback.

    When a running back sprints through the middle of the line without being touched, he gets the glory of scoring a touchdown.

    When a quarterback has time to see down the field and find an open receiver, the duo connects for a score.

    But it all starts with the offensive line and while they might not get the glory, they’re alright with that.

  • Lady Braves fall in regional...

    The Grant County girls’ soccer team were hoping to take another step forward in their historic season.

    In the program’s first regional tournament appearance, their season came to an end with a 7-1 loss to eventual region champ Bourbon County on Oct. 20.

    “The score was a little humbling,” coach Melinda White said. “Making it to the region tournament meant the world to us. Regardless of the score at the end of the game, the girls still made history.”

  • Cross country teams race at St....

    When Grant County and Williamstown’s cross country teams take the course on Nov. 7 at the regional meet, a trip to state will be on the line for the teams.

    To prepare for the most important race of their season, both teams competed at the St. Henry Invitational Oct. 24, their last race before the regional meet.

    In the boys’ varsity race, the Braves fielded four runners as junior Michael Schultz, who sprained his knee in practice last week, sat out the race.

  • GCMS’ season comes to...

    Before their season started, the Grant County Middle School eighth grade football team set a goal of making it back to the playoffs after reaching the state semi-finals last season.

    With a 6-5 regular season record, the Braves earned a trip back to the playoffs, but fell to Anderson County in the first round with a 26-8 loss on Oct. 20.
