  • 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.”

  • Under pressure

    Junior Cory Kearns has stood alone in the net twice this season.

    Kearns was the only line of defense between his goal and the opponent., not once, but twice during the Dry Ridge Toyota Invitational Cup on Sept. 19.

    Kearns stood tall and helped the Braves come away with first place.

    With the district tournament starting for the boys’ and girls’ teams on Oct. 12, Kearns and his female counterpart, freshman Mackenzie Tucker, might have to deal with the pressure that comes from being a goalie and the game on the line.

  • 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.”
