  • 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.

  • Braves’ playoff hopes...

    The Grant County High School football team entered their game against district opponent Jeffersontown knowing that a win would earn them the chance to play in the postseason.

    They also knew it was their last chance to make it happen.

    The Braves played well in the first half, but were unable to keep the game close in the second half as they lost 28-0 on Oct. 23.

  • Lady Demons make history with...

    The Williamstown volleyball team had found themselves down before in third sets.

    They had been pushed to the limit in several matches during the regular season, but had earned the confidence that comes with pulling out close matches.

    So when they found themselves trailing Owen County 23-18 in the third set during the district tournament on Oct. 13, they maintained their composure before reeling off seven straight points on their way to three set win (17-25, 25-17, 25-23).

  • Braves get revenge against...

    Last year, Pendleton County stood in the way of the Grant County boys’ soccer team as they faced off in the district and regional tournament championships.

    This season, the Braves lost their regular season matchup against Pendleton County on Sept. 3 despite a late-game offensive attack.

    The Braves earned redemption when they took down the Wildcats 2-0 in the district tournament Oct. 13. With the win, the Braves earned their second consecutive trip to the region tournament.

  • GCHS football team pushes...

    After 48 minutes of shutout football, the Grant County High School football team needed one more defensive stop.

    The Braves lined up on third down and watched Oldham County’s quarterback roll out to his left and then cut up the field as he headed for the endzone.

    GCHS senior Randy Salyers watched the quarterback through out the play and went to stop him short of the goal line.

    Salyers hit the quarterback at the one-yard line, stopping him in his tracks.

  • With a dominant performance, the Grant County girls’ soccer team made history.

    After defeating Mason County Oct. 12 in the first round of the district tournament, the Lady Braves continued their march to the district championship game with a 3-0 win over Pendleton County Oct. 13.

    With the win, the Lady Braves set two historic marks for their program as they advanced past the second round and earned a spot in the region tournament, both firsts for the program which was started in 2003.

  • CAT ATTACK 10-21-09

    Oh, the weather outside was frightful, but knowing Big Blue Madness was soon starting was so delightful.  Since we’ve no place to go, let it.... ok it’s way to early to start thinking Christmas music, but the frigid weather and the start of another Kentucky Basketball season has me feeling like a youngster waiting to open that big present that’s been staring at you from under the tree.  And believe me, that gift was well worth the wait.
