  • Lady Braves golf, Rich end their...

    At the beginning of the season, every golfer in the state of Kentucky dreams of going to state.

    The Grant County girls’ golf program  and  Williamstown senior Ali Rich all made it to the state tournament, Oct. 4-6 at the Bowling Green Country Club.

    “It was fun,” senior Kodi Hall said. “It was our first time going as a team to state. Sarah Kellam went last year by herself, so it was a nice experience for us.”

  • Lady Demons send seniors out on...

    As a high school student-athlete coming in as a freshman, you feel as though these four years will be slow, until you find yourself walking out on your home court one last time as a senior.

    For the Lady Demons, four seniors got to go out in front of their home crowd to celebrate the last four years playing for Williamstown.

    Chelsea West, Tori Wilhoit, Haley Rothwell, and Makayla True got to celebrate a win on Senior Night Oct. 5, defeating Calvary Christian in two sets, 25-19, 25-21 to move their record to 12-14 on the season.

  • A sad end to a magical season

    It is not what the team wanted, but for 11 Grant County Braves soccer players, the season is over, as they lost to Pendleton County 1-0 in the first round of the 23rd District Tournament.

    The team did set a new school record with 13 wins in the season.

    However, it was a bigger goal in mind for these seniors and for coach Clay Mattingly.

    “It was disappointing that Pendleton County scored the only goal the way they did,” he said about the penalty kick that was early on in the first half of the game.

  • Braves set school record for wins

    The Grant County Braves boys’ soccer team broke the school record for wins (13) after defeating Owen County 3-0 Oct. 7.

    Eleven seniors celebrated the culmination of four years in the Braves soccer program. You wouldn’t be able to tell, sensing there is more to the season than breaking the school record.

    Coach Clay Mattingly even let them play as a team out on the field to start the game and in the second half.

  • Friendship on the links

    Golf can be a sport for anyone and for two Grant County High School golfers it has caused a lifelong friendship.

    Senior Zach Wright and Tim Livingood have been friends since they were in elementary school.

    When Wright was little, his parents and grandparents played golf, which garnered his interest in the game. Wright began playing golf in school when he was in the sixth grade, catching the “golf bug.”

    For Livingood, it was also family that got him into the game.

  • Boys’ soccer still...

    The Braves soccer team is still looking for the record-breaking win, but for coach Clay Mattingly, it is only a matter of time before his team gets it.

    “I’m not worried about it,” he said, after the team tied Walton-Verona Oct. 2. “We know it will come. We are focused on one game at a time, starting with Owen County Thursday night.”

    The game with Owen County at 7:30 p.m. Oct. 7, will be Senior Night for 11 of Mattingly’s players. They will celebrate the culmination of four years playing in the program.

  • Lady Braves get one last go-...

    It hasn’t been an easy season for Grant County soccer coach Melinda White, but she has taken her program to a 7-7-2 record going into their final regular season home game.

    With the final game at home, the Lady Braves will be celebrating the careers of three seniors, Jackie Kinman, Renee Neltner and Rebecca Saylor, before the game.

    “Senior night is something these girls look forward to all year,” White said. “They are so excited to be recognized and honored.”

    Kinman is proud to be a part of this team.

  • Braves fall to 2-4 on the season

    After losing a tough game to Anderson County, the Grant County football team came back home, but it wasn’t sweet, as they lost to Bourbon County 15-7, Oct. 1.

    The loss put the Braves to 2-4 on the season, three straight losses since defeating Pendleton County 31-0 on homecoming night.

    “I was very proud of the fight our boys had that night,” head coach Mike Davis said about the team’s performance. “We had to make some adjustments on defense and we had to pack the box and play well.”

    For Lady Braves volleyball coach Kelli Lee, this has been a season to forget to this point, but she is beginning to sense improvement of her players after defeating Gallatin County in the Carroll County Invitational, Sept. 25.

    “The win was nice, because we got it in two sets,” Lee said about the matches (25-20, 25-20).”

    The win marked their fifth of the season and first one since Grant County defeated Owen County, Sept. 14 (25-16, 25-22).
