  • 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.”

  • Cat Attack 3-9-09

    Mercifully the regular season has finally ended for this year’s Kentucky Wildcats.  The season that started with so much hope officially ended with a thud as Kentucky fell at Florida 60-53 on March 7.  The loss left the Cats with a 19-12 record while also almost certainly ending a streak of 17 straight NCAA Tournament appearances.  Sure, if Kentucky could pull off their best Georgia Bulldogs impersonation from last season and win the SEC Tournament they would earn the conference’s automatic bid, but have you seen this team play lately?  OK, play might be a li

  • WHS cheerleader leads by her...

    Sarah Dunn was the lone senior on the Williamstown varsity cheerleading squad, but she relished the opportunity of leading by example and working with her mom, Tina, as the coach.

    “This year has definitely been a fun year,” Sarah said. “Two years ago, we had Jennifer Eckler as the coach and it was right in the middle. We had serious and fun moments. With Angie Williams as coach last year, it was serious, but it was fun because we were really good. This year has been all fun. It’s been good because I’ve had a good mixture in all my years.”

  • Demons fall in overtime to...

    The Williamstown Demons were confident going into their district tournament game against Simon Kenton, playing on their home court and coming off a big district win over Walton-Verona.

    Both teams battled with each other, matching basket for basket for four quarters before the Demons took the Pioneers into overtime, eventually falling 73-69 on Feb. 24.

  • Braves earn second place in...

    The Grant County Braves had a plan heading into the district tournament to earn at least one win and advance to the region tournament.

    With their 59-45 win over Walton-Verona on Feb. 25, the Braves did just that. The next phase of the plan was to eliminate Simon Kenton en route to a district championship.

    The Braves battled the Pioneers before falling 54-51 on Feb. 27 to take second place in the district.

  • GCHS freshmen team wins district

    The GCHS freshmen boys’ basketball team earned the district championship to end the 2008-09 season.

    The team worked hard to develop their skills and were eager to learn from their coach, Tyler Jones.

    “I wanted my boys to develop as a team and also as young men,” Jones said. “They were very eager to learn and worked extremely hard to accomplish their goals. They are an exceptional group of young men that rallied together.”

    The Braves finished the season 17-3, developing the desire to win as the season went along.

  • Third grade boys win NCKC...

    The Williamstown third grade boys’ basketball team knew coming into the season that they had the talent and the ability to claim the NCKC championship.

    The previous year, the boys lost in the championship to Walton-Verona by eight points, which became the team’s motto this year. “Eight more points” is all they needed to make up for last year’s loss.

    They earned the championship this year with a 24-18 win over Walton-Verona. The Demons used a balanced attack, as no player scored more than four points.

  • Fifth grade girls end season...

    The Williamstown Elementary fifth grade girls’ team entered the NCKC championship game undefeated.

    Their record sat at 12-0, as they would face a Piner team they had already defeated twice in the regular season.

    The girls’ continued with their perfect play as they earned a 34-9 win, ending the season 13-0.

    “We were a good team that had always finished near the top,” coach Greg Middleton said. “But this wasn’t expected.”

  • Cheerleaders take second at...

    After their performance at the KAPOS state competition, the Grant County High School varsity cheerleaders were anxious to compete again and show how talented they are.

    The girls dropped four stunts at the state competition, but at the NKCCA competition on Feb. 22, the girls brought home a second place finish.

    “It was a big competition, but they did well,” coach Leigh Simpson said. “The point for varsity was to redeem themselves to prove that they could do what they did at region and they did just that. They walked off the mat so proud.”

  • Braves earn win on senior night

    The Grant County Braves basketball team knew that their senior night game against Lloyd Memorial would not be easy.

    The two teams had played each other earlier in the season during the Lloyd Memorial Invitational, with the Braves earning a 64-51 win.

    The Braves knew that the Juggernauts would come into their gym looking for revenge. But Grant County sent Lloyd Memorial home with a 43-37 loss after taking control late in the game.
