  • WHS, GCHS compete at state meet...

    With three weeks left before the regional cross country meet, the Williamstown and Grant County cross country teams got a taste of what to expect if they make it to the state meet.

    Both teams competed in the Lexington Catholic Invitational Oct. 17, which was held at the Kentucky Horse Park, the site for the state cross country meet.

    Although the state meet has been held at the horse park before, this year it is being run on a different part of the course and the county’s teams took a chance to learn what to expect.

  • Lady Braves’ season...

    The Grant County volleyball team started slow by dropping the first set in their district tournament matchup against Walton-Verona.

    But the Lady Braves fought back before falling in three sets (21-25, 25-22, 24-26) on Oct. 12.

    “We hustled during the last two points, but the ball just did not fall our way,” coach Kelli Lee said.

    According to Lee, seniors Rachel Kitchens, Dawn Plunkett and Katie Gregg played the best they had all year.

  • Braves fall to South Oldham in...

    The Grant County High School football team is working to put together a complete game.

    Against Bourbon County on Oct. 2, the Braves started sluggish, but turned up their defensive intensity and came away with a win.

    During their district game against South Oldham on Oct. 9, the Braves continued with a slow start, falling behind 14-0 after the first half.

    They rallied in the second half, but weren’t able to close the gap and eventually fell 28-7.

  • Wright, Kellam compete at state...

    GCHS junior Zach Wright set personal goals before the season of finishing first at the regional tournament and making the cut at the state tournament.

    By shooting a 71 in the first round at the regional tournament on Sept. 28, Wright took first place and care of his first goal.

    Despite battling weather delays and having to play 35 holes on Oct. 7, Wright was able to make the cut by shooting a 77 in the first round. The cut was set at 81.

    Wright finished tied for 21st overall after shooting a 79 in the second round for a cumulative score of 156.

  • Late goal propels Braves to...

    The Grant County boys’ soccer team rode a rollercoaster in their district tournament game against Mason County.

    At times, they played inspired soccer, but they also played below their skill level.

    Luckily for the Braves, they ended on a high note as they pulled out a 1-0 victory over the Royals on Oct. 12.

  • Cat Attack 10-14-09

     Last Wednesday night a tent revival broke out in Lexington. No, I’m not talking about a local church event, but rather “Camp Cal” or if that is not team oriented enough for you “Cat Camp.” The line of those waiting for tickets to this year’s Big Blue Madness began forming in earnest on Wednesday and by the time tickets actually were distributed on Saturday morning there were over 400 tents encircling Memorial Coliseum. Tickets for the chance to be one of the first people to see this year’s Cats were gone in just over an hour at

  • Lady Braves defeat Mason in...

    The Grant County girls’ soccer team lost in the first round to Mason County in last year’s district tournament.

    This year, the Lady Braves got some revenge and the chance to keep playing for their preseason goal of earning the district championship after defeating Mason County 4-2 on Oct. 12.

  • Lady Braves earn tie on senior...

    The Grant County girls’ soccer team trailed by a goal late into their senior night game against Western Hills.

    Fortunately for the seniors, a freshman helped them earn a tie instead of a loss.

    Freshman Gwen MacAdams tied the game with four minutes left on a second chance shot as the Lady Braves played Western Hills to a 1-1 tie on Oct. 5.

  • Braves fall to Bishop Brossart

    Grant County boys’ soccer coach Dempsey Schlueter has been preaching to his team that to have success, they will have to step up their intensity.

    Against Bishop Brossart on Oct. 1, he saw them play with more passion, but the Braves fell 1-0.

    “We came out and competed,” Schlueter said. “We showed a lot of intensity against Bishop Brossart, but we have a lot left in us. We didn’t bring our best game, but we showed we can compete with a quality team and give ourselves a chance to win.”
