  • Lady Demons come close to upset

    Facing one of the top teams in the region, the Williamstown girls’ basketball team refused to back down.

    Simon Kenton, who twice defeated the Lady Demons by 30 points last season, barely escaped with a win on Dec. 14 by a score of 50-46.

    “I could not be more proud of the girls because they played their butts off,” coach Mark Wilhoit said. “They took one of the best teams in the region to the brink and about pulled it off. This is something that we can build on and I hope that it shows the girls what they are capable of doing.”

  • Lady Braves fall to Walton-Verona

    When the Grant County girls’ basketball team played district opponent Walton-Verona, they learned that they will need to have to be at their best to come away with a win.

    The Lady Braves kept the game close throughout the first quarter, but Walton-Verona’s deep bench and ability to hit the three-pointer helped the Lady Cats win 56-25 on Dec. 10.

  • Williamstown defeated by Bearcats

    The Williamstown boys’ basketball team knew when their season started that they would be at a size disadvantage.

    They also knew that most every night, they would be facing teams with more experience.

    That didn’t stop the Demons from playing hard and playing smart, keeping their first two games of the season close.

    Against district opponent Walton-Verona, the Demons didn’t play their best basketball and came away with a 68-40 loss on Dec. 11.

  • Cat Attack 12-14-09

    The Indiana Hoosiers did their very best to make the Wildcats first road trip one they would love to forget. The Hoosiers started the game with red-hot shooting, making what seemed like every shot in the first 25 minutes of the game. They actually shot 63% from the field in the first half. That is hard to do if you were shooting in a gym by yourself, let alone in a game with alleged defense being played. Fortunately for UK, the Hoosiers cooled off and Kentucky was able to take control in the second half. Cats win 90-73.

  • Demons push Carroll, Owen to...

    The Williamstown boys’ basketball team return two players with varsity experience this season, but they aren’t letting lack of experience hold them back.

    The Demons started their season with two losses by a total of six points and have had the ball with the chance to tie or take the lead in the final minute of both games.

  • WHS seniors help team make...

    When the Williamstown volleyball team started this season, they wanted to prove what they were truly capable of.

    Their hard work paid off when they finished as the district runner-up and advanced to the regional tournament for the first time in the program’s history.

    Seniors Taylor Eldridge, Chelsea Fitterer and Sara Moreland helped the Lady Demons win their first eight games of the season, which gave the team confidence in their abilities.

  • GCHS cheerleaders host Jingle...

    Last season, a bid to a national cheerleading competition was on the line when the Grant County cheerleaders hosted the Jingle Bell Classic.

    This season, the stakes aren’t as high, but the cheerleaders are still working hard to be at their best.

    The girls aren’t competing for a chance to advance to the national competition, but are instead focused on the regional competition Jan. 30. The fourth annual Jingle Bell Classic will be hosted at Grant County High School at 11 a.m. Dec. 12.

  • West continues to break WHS...

    One game after setting the school record for career assists, Williamstown junior Chelsea West set another school record.

    After making two three-pointers in the fourth quarter against Owen County on Dec. 4, West passed Jaclyn Stith for career three-pointers with 125. Stith’s record was 124.

  • Braves play in Wierwille Classic

    Grant County boys’ basketball coach Ron Kinmon knows the impact that coaches can have on their players.

    He experienced it firsthand with his college coach, Roland Wierwille, who cared more about developing good people than developing good basketball players. Kinmon played for Wierwille at Berea College.

    Last year, Kinmon talked to former teammates who now coach high school basketball and each brought their teams to Berea College for a series of preseason scrimmages.
