  • Demons keep winning streak alive

    After five games, the Williamstown baseball team matched last season’s win total of five.

    After their sixth game, they were able to surpass it.

    The Demons opened the season with a come-from-behind-win against Gallatin County before defeating Trimble County. Williamstown was able to continue their winning ways with a 7-3 win over Owen County on April 1, giving the Demons three region wins in as many games.

  • WHS seniors became brothers

    For the past five years, Storm Mason and Eric White have been able to see each other grow from boys into young men, seeing growth on the court and in the hallways.

    “Storm’s family has become a second set of parents to me and Storm is like a brother,” White said. “We’ve been through some ups and downs. I couldn’t pick any one better to have gone through it with. When I moved here, we started building a friendship and we played ball all through the years, sticking it out.”

  • Lady Demons fall to Trimble,...

    The Williamstown softball team learned in their first game that they are capable of hitting the ball and staying in games.

    In their second game, they learned that mental errors are costly.

    The Lady Demons opened their season with a 12-8 loss to Trimble County on March 24.

    “It was a good opening day,” coach T.J. West said. “We hit the ball and made the plays we need to make, but they out hit us. We were only outside on the field two days before we played, so I was pleased with our effort.”

  • Grant County Middle School girls...

    The girls’ basketball teams at Grant County Middle School had talent at each grade level this year and their coaches believe that they will be something special as long as they keep working to improve.

    The sixth grade team had a record of 12-13, ending the season by winning eight of their last 12 games.

  • Wilhoit earns all-region honors

    Coming into her junior season, Tori Wilhoit knew that she would need to do two things: step up as a leader and as a scorer for the Lady Demons’ basketball team.

    Although her scoring average dropped from the previous season, Wilhoit was named to the 8th region all-region team for the second straight year. She was also named to the North Central Kentucky Conference all-conference team.

  • Davis proud to be a Wildcat

    Becoming a University of Kentucky fan happened by chance for Amanda Davis.

    Davis, who moved to Grant County from the West Coast, found out how fanatical UK fans were when March Madness came in 1998 and her fifth grade class took time to watch games.

  • Braves drop season opener to...

    The Grant County baseball team learned quickly that the road to a third straight district championship would not be an easy one.

    The Braves started their season with a 5-1 loss to Bishop Brossart on March 22.

    “It’s the first game, but we had some costly errors,” coach Darrick Lee said. “But we’ll get those fixed. We’re talking about kids and first-game jitters. That’s what I’m putting it on. It’s a learning experience.”

  • Owen is life-long Cats fan

    Walking into the Dry Ridge Housing Authority’s community room is like stepping inside Rupp Arena.

    The room is decorated floor to ceiling in blue and white with University of Kentucky memorabilia scattered everywhere.

    A small UK Christmas tree by the TV normally only gets turned on right before a game.

  • Mason named to all-conference...

    WHS senior Storm Mason earned a spot on the NCKC all-conference team.

    “Obviously, I like it and it’s a good honor to have,” Mason said. “It’s humbling and I couldn’t do it without my team. I appreciate everything that they, my coach and my school have done for me.”

    “Storm led us in almost every statistical category, but he was more important for leadership,” coach Stacey May said. “That’s what got him this award.”

  • Melton marked by passion

    Brian Melton has a dirty secret.

    “I was actually a Louisville fan growing up,” the self-proclaimed University of Kentucky ultimate fan said. “I hate to tell people that. I was born in Louisville and my dad went to medical school at U of L. When I was 10 or so, I became a Kentucky fan because I had a lot of family peer pressure. I converted and never went back. Once I went to UK and experienced that, it was pretty much lights out.”

    Now that he has turned away from the dark side, Melton is all about UK.
