  • GCHS boys make history during...

    With hard work and determination, the Grant County High School boys’ cross country team have become a team to be taken seriously.

    That is due in part to the efforts of the seniors, who have spent their high school careers working to put the Braves in position to succeed for years to come. Each senior started running because they were inspired by a relative, except for Dustin Sullivan, who had another reason all together.

    “I ran because I was chubby, so I joined,” Sullivan said.

  • For GCHS girls, best times were...

    The seniors of Grant County’s girls’ cross country team worked hard to make their senior season worthwhile, even if their favorite moments were those that happened during practices.

    “For me, being around teammates and everyone I’ve met while running has made it more enjoyable,” Natalie Norman said. “I’ll probably miss all of my teammates because they are the reason that running is fun. I wouldn’t enjoy it as much without them.”

  • Kinmon returns to Berea with...

    When Ron Kinmon took the Grant County High School boys’ basketball team to Berea College, it brought together the only two teams he’s ever played for.

    Kinmon, who played at Berea after playing at Grant County High School, was reunited with five of his former teammates and his former coach at Berea when the Braves played Seven Hills (Oh.). Willie Hill is the coach of Seven Hills and also played with Kinmon at Berea.

  • Spoonamore makes most of senior...

    Patrick Spoonamore had never run cross-country before, but that didn’t stop the senior from taking part during his last year in high school.

    “All of my friends are in it and I like running, so I decided to go for it,” Spoonamore said. “I just wanted to do well and have fun doing it.”

    Even though he was only a part of the team for one year, Spoonamore left a lasting impression on his coach.

  • Heartbreak at John Hardin

    Grant County’s football team wasn’t ready for their season to end.

    The Braves were hoping to make a run in the state playoffs, but unfortunately, the John Hardin Bulldogs weren’t ready to stop playing either.

    The Bulldogs defeated the Braves 55-7 in Elizabethtown in the first round of the state playoffs.

  • Norman sets school record, boys...

    It wasn’t easy, but Natalie Norman had a record-setting performance at the state cross country meet.

    Running in weather that was better suited for football than cross country, Norman trekked across muddy terrain and dealt with wind that whipped from every side to set a new school record for the Lady Braves cross country team. Norman came in 32nd overall with a time of 20:12.29, beating the previous record of 20:13.

  • Butler and Bradford represent...

    While all of the runners in the 1A state cross country meet had to deal with the weather, a Williamstown runner also had to do deal with a bout of illness.

    Katie Butler, a freshman, ran while fighting strep throat, finishing 97th.

    “I had a shot of penicillin, but my strep wasn’t all the way gone,” Butler said. “It was harder than normal. The weather also affected me. I didn’t run the way I wanted to. I should have done better. I was hoping to break my personal record from last year, but I didn’t.”

  • Seniors leave mark on program

    Grant County’s boys’ soccer team made history this past season.

    They earned the program’s 100th win, won a school record 11 games and advanced to the school’s first regional championship. But the motivation and desire to do well started when this group of seniors helped win a district championship their freshmen year.

    “My freshman year, we all went to districts and won that,” Chase Keeton said. “That was something we had to overcome and this year and we did that, plus some more.”

  • GCHS boys run away to state

    The wind gusted around their bodies as the cold air weighed heavily on their lungs, but the runners for Grant County and Williamstown persevered to perform.

    At the regional meet, held at Larry A. Ryle High School on Nov. 8, Grant County’s boys’ team came in second place, bringing home a regional trophy in 3A for the first time in a long time, and also earned a trip to the state meet.

  • Rich named to all-star team

    While Ali Rich was shooting for state, she met another goal.

    Rich was named to the Cincinnati Enquirer’s Northern Kentucky all-star team, which recognizes top golfers across the region.

    “It’s a big accomplishment I think,” Rich said. “It was a personal goal. I was excited. I felt like I had accomplished something.”
