  • Demons drop two games in final...

    The Williamstown baseball team has struggled in close games this season, but coach Aaron Biddle believes that his team’s luck is bound to change.

    Unfortunately for Biddle and the Demons, it didn’t change soon enough as they lost to Owen County 7-5 and to Heritage Academy 8-7.

    The Demons held an early lead against Owen County before giving up a big inning in the fifth, tying the game 4-4.

    The Demons retook the lead in the sixth inning as Isaac Alger drove in a run, but Owen County scored three runs in the seventh inning to win.

  • Beach commits to Cumberlands

    Cory Beach demonstrated the type of player he is with his hard work in the weight room and his leadership skills on the field.

    After starting for three years for the Grant County football team, Beach will continue his football career in college after signing to play for the University of the Cumberlands on April 9.

    “This means everything to me,” Beach said. “It was one of my life goals to play football at the next level.”

  • Lady Braves dominate Lexington...

    During his time coaching the Grant County High School softball team, Ott Reed had never lead a team to a win against Lexington Catholic.

    That changed on April 8 after the Lady Braves defeated Lexington Catholic 12-3.

    “It’s a special win for this team,” Reed said. “But they came in flat. My players put the finger on them in the first inning and would not let up. The hitting is special on this team.”

    The Lady Braves scored in the first inning when Morgan McClure ripped a triple to score three runs.

  • Grant County sweeps season...

    Taryn Biddle stepped to the plate against Williamstown and the Grant County High School softball team never looked back.

    The Lady Braves took an early lead and continued to build on it for an 11-5 win on April 9. With the win, Grant County swept the season series.

    “I’ve never had a hitting team like this,” Grant County coach Ott Reed said. “We decided we haven’t been aggressive enough. We don’t have a lot of speed, but when they start running the bases intelligently, it helps to be aggressive.”

  • Demons advance past first round...

    The Williamstown High School baseball team set a goal of advancing past the first round of the regional All “A” tournament.

    They made that goal a reality with a 4-1 win over Eminence on April 9.

    “I think we went in overly confident and got surprised a little bit,” coach Aaron Biddle said. “But it was a good team win. We need to keep winning and we want to beat some teams we’re not supposed to beat. That’s what we’re going to continue to work on, but we’re having fun and that’s the most important thing.”

  • GCHS track and field compete at...

    After two weeks away from competition, the Grant County High School track and field team was eager to go out and see how they compared against their region opponents.

    The track and field team competed at the Bearcat Open on April 11.

    The Grant County High School baseball team tried to get a win for Dillon Pelfrey when he took the mound.

    The Williamstown baseball team was fresh off their dominant win over Bracken County as they entered this week.

    Unfortunately for the Demons, they lost games to Owen County, district opponent Simon Kenton and Pendleton County.

    The Demons lost 3-2 to Owen County on March 31, despite holding a lead for six innings.

    Josh Asher helped the Demons get on the scoreboard first as he laid down a squeeze bunt that scored Patrick Spoonamore from third base. Kevin McCullough, Isaac Alger and Spoonamore helped hold Owen County scoreless until the seventh inning.

  • Lady Demons play with passion,...

    The Williamstown Lady Demons were looking forward to a few days of rest and relaxation for spring break.

    But standing in the way was a matchup against Paris on March 31.

    Williamstown held an early lead, but lost 3-2 in eight innings.

    “It’s a hard loss. Our girls played hard and played good defense. We had one miscue, but it goes back to not hitting the ball,” coach T.J. West said. “We’re struggling with hitting right now.”
