  • Lady Braves advance to regional...

    The Grant County softball team has been driven since the beginning of the season to get back to the region tournament after missing it the past two seasons.

    After a win over Williamstown on May 24, the Lady Braves punched their ticket back to the region tournament.

    Unfortunately, the Lady Braves fell 2-0 to Walton-Verona in the district championship on May 26, their first loss in three meetings this year with the Lady Cats.

  • Season comes to a close for...

    Despite an improvement from five wins to 14, the Williamstown baseball team wasn’t able to reach a goal they set at the beginning of the season: win a district game.

    The Demons’ season ended with a 5-0 loss to Simon Kenton in the district tournament on May 24.

    “If you can’t hit, you can’t win,” coach Aaron Biddle said. “It’s disappointing because the boys worked so hard in the off-season and during the season. It all builds up to that one night. But I’m proud of the boys and we’ve had a good season.”

  • GCHS relay team advances to...

    They’ve known each other since they started running cross country together.

    The foursome of sophomore Chris Ellis and juniors Brandon Gouge, Dylan Jackson and Michael Schultz know each other so well that they feel comfortable enough to tell each other when they need to step it up.

    That drive to be their best helped Grant County’s 4x800-meter relay team qualify for the state meet.

    The team advanced to state with a time of 8:38.38 on May 29.

  • Track teams prepare for region...

    After a season of dashes, hurdles, jumps and tosses, the Grant County and Williamstown track and field teams are preparing for the biggest test of their seasons.

    The teams will compete at the regional meet May 29 at Dixie Heights High School with the chance to participate at the state meet on the line.

    The two teams came into the season with different expectations, but believe they can send athletes to the state meet.

    Grant County:

  • Edmondson, Prokopchak qualify...

    It didn’t matter to the Williamstown athletes that they were in their first year of the program.

    It didn’t matter that other schools had more experience and knew what to expect when it came to compete at the region meet.

    All that mattered was doing their best and seeing how their performances stacked up against the best from the region on May 29.

    Sophomore Blake Edmondson and freshman Alex Prokopchak did their best and qualified for state in the long jump and the 800-meter run, respectively.

  • Lady Braves defeat Williamstown...

    The Grant County softball team knew that in order to reach their goal of a district championship, they would have to take down a familiar foe.

    The Lady Braves faced county rival Williamstown in the first round of the district tournament and handed the Lady Demons a 10-0 loss in six innings on May 24.

  • Braves fall in district tourney

    After scoring early against Walton-Verona in the first round of the district tournament, the Grant County baseball team was confident they were on their way to compete for their third straight district championship.

    The Bearcats had different ideas.

    Walton-Verona rallied for a seven-run inning to defeat the Braves 7-5 on May 25.
