    Depression.  Anger.  Confusion.  Fear.  These are the feelings that have been increasingly taking up my time after each Kentucky basketball game.  Kentucky fans are quickly trying to schedule an appointment with their doctors to get on some antidepressants and anxiety medicine as this year’s season is quickly plummeting into a dark abyss.  OK, maybe that is a little melodramatic, but in all seriousness this season’s success or failure will be determined in the next few games.  

  • GCHS Dance team takes first...

    The GCHS Dance team made the most of their first opportunity to compete this year, taking first place at the Just Keep Dreaming competition in Bourbon County on Jan. 24.

    “I told the girls that they would have to get their nerves out and they could do it,” coach Kim Graves said. “Just keep smiling.”

    “I thought it was really amazing and there were a lot of good teams,” Deya Torres said. “I’m so happy that we took first place because we put so much effort into it.”

  • Winter weather affects area...

    The weather that shut down schools last week also disrupted local basketball teams schedules.

    The Williamstown Lady Demons and the Grant County Lady Braves were able to play their rivalry game on Jan. 26, but then both teams had to postpone or cancel other matchups later in the week.

    The Lady Demons had to postpone their game against Trimble County on Jan. 31 until Feb. 7. They also missed several practices during the week, sometimes practicing with only a portion of their team.

  • Second half hurts Demons against...

    After drilling a three pointer to head into the half only down two points against Simon Kenton, the Williamstown Demons were hoping to keep their momentum and earn a district win.

    However, the Demons have struggled executing after halftime this season and continued their struggles against the Pioneers, falling 80-59 on Feb. 2.

  • Columnist is passionate about UK...

    Hello, Grant County. My name is Brian Melton and like a lot of you I am a huge Kentucky Wildcat basketball fan. And like you, I have a full time job that requires much more of me than just watching or reading any and every bit of information available related to my greatest passion.

  • Braves sweep Demons

    No matter how big a lead, the Grant County-Williamstown rivalry always seems to come down to the final few minutes.

    Grant County, leading by as many as 13 points in the fourth quarter, held on for a 78-69 victory after Williamstown cut their lead to four. The Braves won both games of the regular season rivalry.

  • 30 years later - the team that...

    As the seconds ticked off the clock, the Grant County Braves turned to see their faithful fans unfurl a banner that said “Braves – Region Eight Champs.”

    Thirty years later, it’s a memory that has stuck with the players from the 1978-79 GCHS boys’ basketball team.

  • Demons fall in 'All A'

    Believing that his team had a size advantage, coach Stacey May was dissapointed when the Williamstown Demons lost to Walton-Verona in the All “A” Tournament.

    “We didn’t really play bad, but we didn’t hit shots,” May said. “If we hit some of the shots we took, I’m talking about how well we played. This game, we didn’t play bad; we just missed shots. Walton was pretty consistent shooting the ball.”

  • Lady Braves earn win against...

    While snow fell outside the Grant County gymnasium, the Lady Braves warmed up their fans with a shot-making showcase against rival Williamstown.

    The Lady Braves split the season series with Williamstown after coming away with a 53-45 victory.

    “It was three nice wins for us,” GCHS coach Darrell Guffey said. “The freshman won, the JV won and the varsity won. We grew up a lot tonight. We gained some game situation experience and it was a nice win for our players. I’m happy for our girls.”

  • Braves shoot down Shelby County...

    For a moment, the Grant County High School gym was silent.

    Shelby County had the ball with 5.4 seconds left and were down 62-60. They took the ball out and drove to the left of the paint, hoping for a foul call or a chance at a decent shot. The guard put the shot up and as it floated skyward, silence overtook the gym.

    That silence was broken by the clank of the ball off the rim and the excited shouting.
