    With a two-week break between games, the Williamstown Lady Demons were hoping to shake off their rust against Walton-Verona.

    The Lady Demons were sluggish and came away from the district showdown with a 42-31 loss.

    “I thought the first half we didn’t come out ready to play,” coach Mark Wilhoit said. “We were never really in sync. We weren’t ready. We talked about everything Walton was going to do and what we needed to do to stop them and we didn’t do it. Until we learn to listen, this is going to be continue to happen.”

  • GCHS cheerleaders prepare for...

    The Grant County High School varsity cheerleaders hope that Valentine’s Day will be especially sweet for them.

    “We took a good look at the score sheet from region,” coach Leigh Simpson said. “I also let the girls come in and watch the routine as a cheerleader and asked what they saw we could fix and what they liked. We narrowed it down to three really important things.”

    Down by as many as eight points in the final minutes of the fourth quarter against Carroll County, the GCHS girls’ basketball team could have given up. They could have drifted through the final possessions and waited for the buzzer to sound.

  • Cat Attack 2-4-09

    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.

    “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 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.
