  • GCHS defeats Bourbon to bring...

    It wasn’t a traditional homecoming game, but it was a winning night.

    Because of a sloppy field, the Grant County High School football team travelled to Bourbon County on Oct. 2.

    The Braves put together a dominant second half to earn a 17-14 win.

  • The significance of the set

    To start a play in volleyball, a team must play defense first and make sure they can return the ball.

    The next play determines whether or not they’ll be able to attack or continue playing defensively.

    That play is called a set and if it is executed properly, it allows a team to set the tone for a match.

    The district tournament starts on Oct. 12 and will give Grant County and Williamstown the chance to show their ability to set the ball and their offensive attack.

  • W-town hosts CC invitational

    While Williamstown cross country coach Michelle Whaley was busy coordinating the Williamstown Invitational, junior Steven Bradford was busy cheering on his teammates and giving them tips as they ran their races.

    Bradford took enough time to prepare himself for his own race, taking third in the boys’ varsity race with a time of 17:32.7 despite battling a cramp in his side.

    “My race wasn’t as good as I wanted it to be,” Bradford said. “I wanted to break 17 minutes, but I’ll get it next race.”

  • Kellam wins regional

    Bundled up for the cold, wet weather, Grant County freshman Sarah Kellam set a goal of making 11 pars over the course of her round in the regional tournament.

    As she walked off the 18th green, she had no idea how her score held up against others at the tournament, but she was disappointed that she fell one par short of her goal.

    She had a little consolation because with her score of 76, Kellam took first place by one stroke at the regional tournament at Perry Park Country Club on Sept. 29.

  • GCHS runners race under the...

    Looking for a change of pace, the Grant County High School cross country teams decided to sleep in.

    The Braves were able to because instead of waking to race early in the morning, they were going to run at night under the bright lights at the Adidas Saturday Night Lights IV in Centerville, Ohio on Sept. 26.

    “It was an experience that the runners will remember,” coach Marlon Kinsey. “They have worked hard and they deserved to have a little fun, but the main goal was to perform at our best. Running at night is a unique experience.”

  • Lady Braves take down Newport in...

    The Grant County High school girls’ soccer team was eager to get back in the win column.

    The Lady Braves had lost or tied in their previous three games before coming away with a 4-0 win over Newport on Sept. 24.

    “It was wet and sloppy, but it was still good to get a win,” coach Melinda White said. “It was nice to put a W back on the board.”

  • Braves defeat Bryan Station, tie...

    Scores: 3-0 win over Bryan Station, 2-2 tie against Dixie Heights

    When: Sept. 22 and 26

    Where: Bryan Station and Dixie Heights High School

    What: Against Bryan Station, senior Neal Koebcke started the scoring with a quick direct kick goal after a foul. Junior Lincoln Howe added two goals. Despite a delay for lightning, the Braves were able to maintain their focus for the win.

  • Braves defeated by Anderson

    The rain fell all week and soaked into the Grant County High School football field.

    When the Braves faced Anderson County on Sept. 25, the field had turned into a mud pit.

    The teams slid all over the field and the Braves fell 41-0 in their first district game.

    “Anderson County is a good football team and I thought early on, we played with a deer in the headlights look,” coach Mike Davis said. “We came out, not flat, but like we didn’t believe. We fell behind and then started to play Grant County football.”

  • Lady Demons win on senior night

    The Williamstown volleyball team started senior night with speeches and gifts from the younger players. They ended the night with a dominant win over a district opponent.

    The Lady Demons defeated Owen County in two sets (25-16, 25-15) on Sept. 23.

    “It was a real fun night because we played together,” senior Chelsea Fitterer said. “We all want to win and that helps us work together.”

    The Lady Demons celebrated the careers of Fitterer, Taylor Eldridge and Sara Moreland.
