  • Lady Braves rebound for win...

    The first time that the Grant County High School volleyball team faced Walton-Verona, they lost in two sets on Sept. 1.

    With a month of experience, they were able to rebound when the team’s faced each other again.

    Although they lost the first set, the Lady Braves fought back to defeat the Lady Bearcats in three sets on Sept. 22, winning 17-25, 25-20 and 25-13.

  • The inexact science of the putt

    Putting is only one facet of the sometimes frustrating, sometimes sublime game of golf. But the importance of making a putt showed when the Grant County girls’ golf team competed in their tournament on Sept. 12.

    The girls were able to take first place after each girl was able to par their last hole. They won the Grant County Classic by one stroke and had any of the girls not been able to finish the job on the green, they would have walked away without the first place finish.

    The Grant County boys’ golf team is thinking of their tournament as a tune-up before the regional tournament.

    The Braves finished 10th, while Williamstown’s boys’ varsity finished 18th.

    “It was a crazy day,” Braves coach Lance Robinson said. “We finished behind Highlands and Mason County (region opponents), but it was a hard day. We didn’t get the team score we wanted.”

  • Braves finish first in tourney

    Last year, goalkeeper Cory Kearns learned about being in goal during a shootout that would decide a tournament championship.

    Kearns was a sophomore last season and in the Grant County Invitational found himself in his first shootout in the championship game. The Braves ended up losing, but the experience paid off when Kearns helped the Braves advance to the regional championship after the Braves defeated Bourbon County in a shootout in the semifinals last season.

    This year, he found himself in the same position and again helped lead the Braves to victory.

  • Braves fall to Western Hills

    Giving up big plays on defense and turning the ball over on offense hurt the Grant County High School football team when they faced Western Hills.

    The Braves were defeated 49-6 on Sept. 18.

    “Nothing really worked on offense all night long for us,” coach Mike Davis said. “We knew we were going in to play a senior-dominated team, but they beat us up front and it’s another week of frustration.”

  • Lady Braves defeat Bourbon

    As a test case for what might be coming soon to high school volleyball, the Grant County and Bourbon County volleyball teams decided to experiment.

  • Braves defeat Bearcats,...

    Following their loss to Pendleton County, the Grant County High School boys’ soccer team was driven to prove they could play a complete game.

    Against the Wildcats, the Braves rallied in the final 15 minutes, but were looking to show their skill over the full 90 minutes.

    They proved they could with back-to-back wins over Walton-Verona and Harrison County.

    The Braves defeated Walton-Verona 1-0 Sept. 8 on a goal from senior Anthony Clouse.
