  • Lady Braves defeat Cooper, fall...

    With a win over Cooper High School, the GCHS Lady Braves showed the ability they have and how well they can play defense.

    The Lady Braves shut down Cooper, coming away with a 44-36 victory on Jan. 16.

    “We had a slow first half and couldn’t get things going very well,” coach Darrell Guffey said. “We played a pretty good second half and a really good fourth quarter. We settled down and played better. We had some players step up. Tyanna Workman made some plays and our guards settled in and got better in the second half.”

  • GCMS sixth grade team enjoys...

    The Grant County Middle School sixth grade basketball team won their home game against the Conner sixth grade team 34-29 on Jan. 6.

    Grant County was led by Trent Wainscott, who had 14 points and nine rebounds, while Austin Johnson scored six points, had eight assists and four steals. There were other contributors with Seth Adkins hitting a three point shot to give the Braves a 12-9 half-time advantage.

    Jordan Saylor, Brendan Dills and Jason Goe all hit key baskets down the stretch to close out the game. The sixth graders are coached by Steve Kellam.

  • Lady Demons end All “A...

    The Williamstown girls’ basketball team wanted to bring the All “A” championship home, after missing it last year by two points.

    The Lady Demons were up 10 points with three minutes left to go before Carroll County started to press, forcing turnovers and hitting three pointers down the stretch to take the lead and a 57-53 win on Jan. 14.

  • CAT ATTACK 1-26-09

    The Kentucky Wildcats traveled down south the past weekend to face off against Alabama’s Crimson Tide. The only thing more odd than this team’s mascot was the game itself. It would be overly polite to say the game was a defensive struggle. Anyone other than Jodie Meeks seemed unable to make a shot as the team had more turnovers than made baskets in the first half. The sad thing was that Kentucky actually shot a slightly higher percentage than Alabama in the first half, but still only managed to score 19 points. Yes, 19 points.

  • CAT ATTACK

    In the 2009 edition of the “battle of ferocious felines”, the Kentucky Wildcats claimed sole possession of first place in the Southeastern Conference with what most would call an ugly win. Prior to the game Coach Gillispie and his players warned us that Auburn would be a difficult match up for the Cats and even went as far as to compare them to, gulp, VMI. If that doesn’t nauseate you something is wrong. Unlike the aforementioned school, Auburn wasn’t necessarily to blame for most of the turnovers the Cats committed.

  • Lady Demons get district win

    With the way the Williamstown Lady Demons were playing, not even a three pointer at the buzzer could stop them from taking down Walton-Verona on the road.

    The Lady Demons came away with a 45-44 win on Jan. 9.

  • Braves take first matchup

    Taking a 44-43 lead into the fourth quarter, the Grant County Braves knew they would have to execute in the final quarter to come away with a win against cross-county rival Williamstown, especially with the game at the Demons’ gymnasium.

    The Braves held on for a 54-50 victory, keeping them undefeated in the district and earning them bragging rights until the team’s match up again on Jan. 30 at GCHS.

  • GCHS girls fall to Wildcats

    The Grant County Lady Braves have been a streaky team all season.

    They started their season with a win, but followed that with several losses. The Lady Braves used the Grant County Invitational to kick-start their success, reeling off four wins in a row. But following losses to Simon Kenton and Pendleton County, Grant County finds themselves on the down slope again.

    The Lady Braves lost to Pendleton County 60-48 on Jan. 12.

  • Braves defeat Walton-Verona on...

    Against Walton-Verona, the Grant County Braves were looking to take hold of first place in the district.

    With a 57-53 win on the road, the Braves did just that.

    Now 3-0 in the district and 12-4 overall, Grant County is now in control of their district seed.

  • Demons bounce back with...

    The Williamstown Demons were anxious to get back on the court after their loss to Grant County. Unfortunately for Trimble and Henry County, the Demons played with a passion to keep building on the success they have enjoyed this season.

    The Demons defeated Trimble County 56-47 on Jan. 9 and came out ahead of Henry County 56-54 on Jan. 12.
