  • GCHS boys’ finish 15th...

    Their goal of finishing in the top 10 at the state meet is still one they will have to work for, but the Grant County boys’ cross country team keeps improving from year to year.

    The boys had set a goal to finish as one of the top 10 teams in the AAA, but ended up finishing 15th on Nov. 14. The Braves were 60 points away from ending their season in the top 10.

    In 2007, the boys finished 20th and in 2008, the boys finished 17th.

  • Bradford, Harris compete at state

    When Williamstown runners Steven Bradford and Drew Harris stood on the starting line of the state meet, they knew they were racing for themselves.

    Without a team, they were racing as individuals, competing for personal bests and individual accomplishments.

    Bradford, who is a junior, finished 53rd, despite battling dehydration. This is his second straight year competing as an individual and in last year’s race, he also finished 53rd.

  • GCHS boys take second at region

    Heading into the regional meet, the Grant County boys’ cross country team was expecting to, at the very least, repeat their performance from last season and finish second.

    They knew that Conner, last season’s regional champion, was saving some runners for the state meet and thought they could come away with a surprising regional championship.

    After running their race, they didn’t realize how close they came to relinquishing second in the region, finishing behind Conner and ahead of Campbell County by three points on Nov. 7.

  • GCHS’ season ends with...

    The Grant County High School football team has been led by their seniors all season, whether it was in the weight room, in practice or during games.

    With their final game of the season, the Braves honored them at halftime of their game against West Jessamine.

    Unfortunately, the Braves weren’t able to send the seniors off with a win, falling 36-8 on Oct. 30.

  • Bradford, Harris qualify for...

    Steven Bradford, a junior at Williamstown, expected to qualify for state, whether it was as an individual or as a member of his team.

    Drew Harris, an eighth grader, found out he had a chance to make it to state with a mile left in the race.

    Bradford and Harris each earned a spot in the state meet, qualifying as individuals and leading the Demons to a seventh place finish, one spot away from qualifying as a team.

  • 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.
