  • Williamstown seniors say goodbye

    While Taylor Eldridge has played basketball for Williamstown for the past seven years, Mekayla Pendleton was looking to make the most of her senior year.

    “This was my last chance to play,” Pendleton said. “This was my senior year and I wanted to play. I just like playing basketball.”

    Pendleton joined Eldridge as seniors for this year’s girls’ basketball team. Eldridge kept coming back year after year because of the bonds that she made with her teammates and how she grew in that time.

  • Middle school players gain...

    The Williamstown middle school basketball teams were battling reduced numbers, but not reduced optimism.

    On the girls’ side, they had players for a sixth and seventh grade team, but not an eighth grade team. On the boys’ side, they were able to field a team for seventh and eighth grade games, but not for a sixth grade team.

  • WHS cheerleaders’...

    When the Williamstown boys and girls’ basketball seasons came to a close, it also meant an end to the cheerleading careers for six Williamstown cheerleaders.

    Ashley Farley, Nicole Hendy, Shelby Horn, Sara Moreland, Rachel Morris and Katie Webster have each cheered for Williamstown for different lengths of time, but they know the impact that their class has had.

  • Husband, Father, Coach

    Carl Wenderoth and Hall of Fame go together like basketball and Kentucky.

    Wenderoth, the former basketball coach at Grant County High School, was inducted into the 8th region Hall of Fame in between region semifinal games on March 8. This was the second inductee class from the 8th region.

    “I don’t know what to say because it came up this past weekend and caught me by surprise,” Wenderoth said.

  • Senior duo led GCHS cheerleaders

    When Danielle Hayek decided to return to Grant County after being away for three years, she knew she wanted to wear blue and gold as a Grant County High School cheerleader.

    She spent the last two years at Simon Kenton High School before trying out for the GCHS varsity squad. When Hayek made it, she joined Paige Mudman as the lone seniors.

    The early practices weren’t easy for Hayek, as the close-knit group treated her as an outsider, but with her work ethic, she won the girls over and now Mudman and Hayek call each other best friends.

  • Braves fall to Bearcats

    After two consecutive baskets by GCHS junior Jordan Cummins, the Braves were tied with Walton-Verona with a little over a minute left in the first round of the district tournament matchup.

    Walton-Verona took a lead with a score on their next possession before the Braves and the Bearcats traded free throws to make it 60-58.

    With a chance to tie, the Braves turned the ball over on an inbounds pass, giving a Walton-Verona player a straight route to the basket, for a score that Grant County never recovered from.

  • Cheerleaders end season with...

    After ending their competitive season with an eighth place finish at KAPOS state, the Grant County High School varsity cheerleaders were looking forward to having fun for their final competition.

    The squad competed in the COA National Championship in Columbus, Ohio on Feb. 27, finishing second in the medium division.

    “It was interesting,” coach Leigh Simpson said. “We went to have fun and finish the season on a high note. It was all about new experiences. They did a fantastic job.”

  • Demons downed by Simon Kenton

    Entering this season, Williamstown boys’ basketball coach Stacey May knew he would rely on his two returning players with varsity experience, seniors Storm Mason and Eric White.

    May knew that his seniors would lead their team in big games, but also hoped that the younger players would gain confidence as they gained varsity experience.

  • Cat Attack 3-1-10

    When South Carolina walked into Rupp Arena Thursday night there was only one thing on the over 24,000 screaming fans minds-Revenge.  Those pesky Gamecocks, led by their flea like point guard Devan Downey, had handed the then #1 Cats their first and only loss of the season a month earlier.  Most of the Kentucky team, save the always refreshingly honest Daniel Orton, was politically correct prior to the contest in saying it was just another game, blah blah blah.  But after the game Orton described the team’s feelings about the victory. “It is a little sweeter.

  • Cheerleaders place eighth at...

    After walking off the mat at the KAPOS state competition, the Grant County varsity cheerleaders knew they had just nailed their routine.

    The girls knew how well they had done when they saw tears in their coach’s eyes.

    “My girls looked better than I’ve ever seen them look,” coach Leigh Simpson said. “It was so amazing that it brought me to tears and I don’t cry. Just watching them perform at their best and seeing them be so proud of themselves was amazing.”
