  • Braves fall to Anderson County

    GCHS boys’ basketball coach Joe Utter is looking for his team to play with a little more urgency.

    With only a couple of days to go before the Braves play Walton-Verona in the district tournament, Utter wants to see his players show that they are ready to be at their best when they play a win-or-go-home game.

  • Cheerleaders prepare for state...

    With a short two weeks in between the region and state competitions this year, the Grant County High School varsity cheerleaders know that they’ve had to pack a lot of work into a short span of time.

    The squad is preparing to compete in the KAPOS state competition on Feb. 20 at Western Kentucky University.

  • Lady Demons fall to Walton-Verona

    After a hot first half, the Williamstown girls’ basketball team trailed Walton-Verona by one point.

    The Lady Demons had made play after play to stay with the Lady Bearcats, but a slow start to the second half helped Walton-Verona pull away for a 47-38 victory on Feb. 5.

    Braves lose to Bearcats

    Score: 69-66

    When: Feb. 2

    Where: Walton-Verona High School

    What: The Braves won three of four quarters against Walton-Verona, but came up short in part to being outscored 26-13 during the second quarter.

    Grant County was led by their two seniors, Mike Davis and Isaiah Wartman, who scored 20 points a piece and combined for 22 rebounds.

    Walton-Verona also shot 30 free throws, compared to six free throws by the Braves.

  • GCHS girls drop district game

    For most of the season, GCHS girls’ basketball coach Darrell Guffey has seen his team struggle to start games against good teams.

    The Lady Braves were outscored 18-6 in the first quarter, but rallied to get within four points in the fourth quarter before falling 45-35 on Feb. 8.

  • Three times a champion

    Delayed, but still determined for greatness.

    The Grant County cheerleaders were eager to compete for their third straight region championship on Jan. 30, but because of snow, the KAPOS eighth region competition was postponed to Feb. 3.

    The delay just made the girls more anxious to perform and the wait proved to be worth it as the varsity squad earned a first place finish in the medium division and their third straight region title, a first for the program.

  • Cat Attack 2-8-10

    Well at least the people of Louisiana have Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints winning their first ever Super Bowl this weekend because their LSU Tigers basketball team was manhandled by the Kentucky Wildcats Saturday afternoon.  Clearly this was not anywhere close to the LSU team that beat UK twice last season and won the regular season SEC championship, but the Cats performance was nonetheless impressive.  

    Kentucky wins easily in the Bayou 81-55.  

  • Braves come out on top against...

    A spin move was all Mike Davis needed.

    Davis, a senior at Grant County, waited for the free throw attempt by GCHS junior Jordan Cummins to hit the rim and then Davis spun away from the basket. Luckily, the ball bounced off the rim and into Davis’ hands with seven seconds left.

    The Demons fouled him to stop the clock and Davis followed by sinking two free throws on the way to a 58-56 victory on Jan. 29.

  • Legacy of leadership

    Entering this season, Grant County’s football team knew that they would rely on their nine seniors.

    The seniors pushed the underclassmen to be at their best and that leadership is what coach Mike Davis will remember most about this class.
