  • Cat Attack 3-18-

        The Kentucky Wildcats kicked off their postseason play this year with a home game against UNLV in Memorial Coliseum on March 17.  The site had not hosted an actual game since 1976 and was always the home for Midnight Madness when I was growing up.  The change of venue from Rupp Arena added some excitement to an event, an NIT game, that doesn’t exactly get my blood pressure up. 

  • Stone makes most of senior year...

    Chelsea Stone was a part of Grant County’s marching band for five years, but her senior year, she wanted to do something different.

    Stone decided to join Grant County’s cheerleadering squad and made the most of her time on the mat, earning a spot on the junior varsity and competing with the girls.

  • Teams prepare for start of season

    As winter slowly turns to spring, the sound of baseballs and softballs hitting gloves is a welcome sound.

    The teams will start their seasons on March 23 and have been working to get ready for their first games.

    Each team features a new coach this year as T.J. West takes over Williamstown’s softball team, Aaron Biddle leads Williamstown’s baseball team, Justin Hollingsworth takes the reigns of Grant County’s defending district champions baseball team and Ott Reed, after a year away, returns as Grant County’s softball coach.

  • Lasting friendships made on the...

    For the Williamstown senior basketball players, this season was their chance to prove that they could make something special happen whenever they took the court.

    They set a goal of winning 10 games and met that goal with their 92-42 victory over Covington Latin on senior night.

    “This year was a lot better. The past years have been kind of tough, record wise. It felt a lot better this year. It feels pretty good playing our last year and winning some ball games,” Zack Anglin said.

  • CAT ATTACK 3-13-09

    HALLELUJAH!!!!!!!  The four game losing streak is over.  I honestly almost forgot how to write something following a victory, but I’m thankful the Wildcats gave me the opportunity once again.  Maybe a trip to Tampa is what this team needed to regain the focus and intensity that had escaped them in recent weeks.  I can tell you one thing for sure, the weather here is just a little bit nicer than the 35 degrees back in Kentucky, but why rub it in.

  • Braves season ends in region...

    As the seconds ticked off the clock, Kody Thompson was having déjà vu.

    The Braves senior had forced overtime against Owen County in the region tournament with a drive to the basket and a score.

    Less than 10 minutes later, he was back in the same position, except with the chance to win. He dribbled the ball as the crowd’s pleas to keep the Braves season alive surrounded him.

    As he attacked the basket, he elevated and let the ball go.

  • Junior varsity teams improve...

    Junior varsity gives players the opportunity to get playing time and improve their skills as they prepare to play at the varsity level.

    The four area junior varsity teams each had players that made contributions to the varsity level this year and return to help their teams get better next year.

    The GCHS boys’ junior varsity team finished the season 12-10 and were close in a majority of their losses.

  • Memories will last for WHS...

    For the three seniors on the Williamstown girls’ basketball team, their time together has been sweet, on and off the court.

    Mellissa Snow, Jaclyn Stith and Amber Vance became a family, sisters tied together by their common love of basketball.

    “I love basketball because of the girls,” Vance said. “We are so close. Half the time, I think I’m closer to them than my family because I’m around them a ton during the season.”

  • For GCHS seniors, attitude is...

    The Grant County girls’ basketball team relied on their two seniors this year. Candace Gorby and Shayna Lockard led by their example and the advice they doled out to younger players.

    Now that their high school careers are over, the pair are satisfied and know they helped build the program.

  • GCHS varsity cheerleaders leave...

    The Grant County varsity cheerleader’s careers may be ending, but not before they made history.

    This group of six seniors are the first to help the program earn back-to-back trips to the state competition.

    “All the years that we’ve cheered, it adds up to what we are now,” Lakeshia Crabtree said. “It’s all worth it. Going to state two years in a row is a major accomplishment for us and it all adds up in the end.”
