  • Four selected for Olympic...

    Hoping to make a name for Grant County, four girls’ soccer players tried out for the Kentucky Olympic Development Program.

    Grant County Middle School eighth graders Mollie Pelfrey and Bethany Lawrence were selected, along with Grant County High School freshmen Gwen MacAdams and Alexis Willen.

  • Cat Attack 2-1-10

    Oh no, not again. The referee crew from the Kentucky-Vanderbilt game just blew their whistle again.  Those three guys had to be the most warn out people in Rupp by the time the final seconds ran off the clock Saturday evening.  They combined to call 58 total fouls and the teams shot a total of 70 free throws.  Looks like neither team will need to practice free throws this week.

  • All A ends in semis for Demons

    Heartbreaking.

    That’s how WHS senior Storm Mason describes the Demons loss to Walton-Verona in the All A regional semifinals.

    The Demons held a six-point lead over Walton-Verona heading into the fourth quarter of their All A regional semifinal game. Williamstown was unable to hold onto their lead, eventually falling 50-48 on Jan. 22. With a win against Gallatin County, Walton-Verona won the All A regional championship.

  • Cat Attack 1-28-10

    Undefeated season, done. Unblemished SEC record, gone. A #1 ranking that lasted less than a day and a half, over. And all because of a phone call from Barack Obama, why does he have to ruin everything? Just joking Mr. President, not even an executive order from you to arrest Devan Downey could have helped Kentucky on this night. Actually that might have worked. It’s ok, we know you’re busy.

    The Williamstown girls’ basketball team bent, but never broke.

    The Lady Demons faced their county rival Grant County and built a 16-point lead heading into the fourth quarter, leading 39-23.

    The Lady Braves were able to chip away at Williamstown’s lead, eventually tying the game at 43 after GCHS senior Dawn Plunkett hit a three-pointer with less than two minutes left.

  • GCHS cheerleaders aim for...

    The Grant County varsity cheerleaders knew that to be at their best they would have to shake off their nerves.

    Last week while the squad prepared for the JKD Competition at Bourbon County High School, they had several drops that they knew they could not afford in an actual competition, especially because the KAPOS eighth region competition was a week later.

    The girls were able to stay focused and earned first place in the medium division on Jan. 23.

  • Cat Attack 1-26-10

    On the verge of becoming the #1 ranked team in the country for the first time since 2003 with a win over Arkansas, the Kentucky Wildcats delivered their most dominating performance of the season to remain the lone unbeaten in all the land. Coach John Calipari, who has been known to downplay the play of this team at times this season, described the performance this way. "I think we would have smashed anyone in the country today. That's not arrogance, but that's as good as we've played for the first 20 minutes. We would have beaten a lot of teams today."

  • GCMS Lady Braves off to a hot...

    The seventh grade Lady Braves’ basketball team had high expectations heading into this season after finishing last season 12-5 with a second place finish in their conference tournament.

    Some of their goals heading into the season were to win at least 80 percent of their games and to have fun. Through 16 games, they are well on their way to achieving their goals with a 13-3 record.
