  • Players should be proud of...

    I get to cover sports for a living.

    When I first went to college, I thought I would graduate with a business degree and work in an office. But then my sophomore year, I had a realization. There was a chance that I could get paid to go to sporting events.

    It was then that something clicked and I decided to go into English and work to become a reporter. When I started at the Grant County News in August 2007, I was the staff writer and one day hoped, whether it was here or someplace else, that I would get to cover sports.

  • Grant County girls’...

    Early turnovers helped the Grant County Lady Braves, but late turnovers helped Walton-Verona come away with a 44-33 win on Dec. 11.

    “We played hard, competed and had a chance to win,” coach Darrell Guffey said. “Turnovers and defensive rebounding have been the key for us all year. We need to stick our nose in there and box out. We came out aggressive and that was good. We got much better and that’s the important thing.”
