  • Demons battle through busy week

    As the regular season winds down, the Williamstown Demons had a tough stretch, playing five games over the course of a week.

    The Demons started by falling 51-45 at home against Frankfort on Feb. 10.

    “It was probably our second worst game of the year as far as executing and the way we played,” coach Stacey May said. “The only positive was getting Wes Philpot back and how he played with a lot of energy. I thought he single-handedly kept us in the game at times. We’re trying to get back on track like when we played Walton-Verona.”

  • Twin wins

    The Grant County High school girls’ and boys’ basketball teams put on a show for their fans during GCHS’ homecoming.

    The girls earned a 43-28 victory over Henry County, while the boys defeated Henry County 66-57 on Feb. 13.

    The Lady Braves built a 22-18 lead at halftime and kept adding to their lead to start the third quarter. Behind scores by Shayna Lockard and Amber Cope, Grant County was ahead 30-22 before Morgan McClure added a free throw to make it 31-22 at the end of the third quarter.

  • Cheerleaders place 13th at state...

    As the Grant County High School varsity cheerleaders left for Bowling Green on Feb. 13, they each tapped a sign that said, ‘Perform Like Champions.’

    They had hopes of finishing in the top 10, dreaming that they could possibly finish in the top 5.

    When the time came to perform, they didn’t live up to their own expectations, dropping four stunts and finishing 13th. But, according to coach Leigh Simpson, their performance was unexpected after how they had been performing recently.

  • Williamstown girls fall in...

    On senior night, the Williamstown Lady Demons battled with Pendleton County, with the lead going back and forth.

    The Lady Demons ultimately lost in overtime, falling 60-52 on Feb. 16.

    “We did a poor job rebounding,” coach Mark Wilhoit said. “That was the key to me. They out hustled us and we have to do a better job of keeping them off the glass. To be small, we’re a pretty good rebounding team, but they exposed one of our weaknesses that we have to improve before the district tournament.”

  • CAT ATTACK 2-18-09

    What a difference a week makes.  Last Wednesday morning.

  • Demons dominate Walton-Verona...

    The Williamstown Demons saved their best performance of the year for the final regular season district game against Walton-Verona.

    The Demons controlled the game from the tip, winning 75-48 for their first district win on Feb. 6.

  • Braves lose in final minute to...

    Trailing Walton-Verona since early in the first quarter, the GCHS Braves made a run in the fourth quarter to take the lead, but needed a defensive stop to hold on for the district win.

    The Bearcats led 69-68, but Caleb Kinmon scored to take the lead in the final minute and energized his team and the Braves faithful fans. The Braves needed one stop to come away with a win, but Walton-Verona drove to the hoop for a bucket, ending the game with a final score of 71-70.

  • WHS girls fall to Walton-Verona

    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.

    The cheerleaders will perform at the KAPOS state competition on Feb. 14 and are looking for a top 10 finish to build on their performance at the region competition.

    “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.”

  • Lady Braves comeback against...

    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.

    But they fought back, picking it up on offense and defense to cut the Lady Panthers lead to one with only a few seconds left. A heave from half court could have won the game for the Lady Braves, but it didn’t hit the net, giving Carroll County a 61-60 win on Feb. 6.
