  • 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.

  • Cammack is blue to the bone

    Eddie Cammack believes that his license plate says it all.

    “1UK MAN” adorns the back of his truck, while blue and white University of Kentucky flags fly from his windows.

    He just started watching games and got hooked on it, watching the Wildcats win the national championship in 1978.

  • Batter, batter, swing!

    As winter slowly turns to spring, Grant County and Williamstown’s baseball and softball teams are eager to start their seasons.

    The Braves baseball team is coming off of back-to-back district championships and the three other teams are looking to compete for district championhips, but won’t know where they are at until they take the field against an opponent.

    The Braves have a new coach, Darrick Lee, but return a majority of their roster from last year, as only three seniors graduated.

  • Quartet end GCHS basketball...

    Their time as basketball players wasn’t always easy, but the four seniors on this year’s GCHS team have been on the hard court together for the past four years and have formed bonds that they will cherish.

    “Having friends like this, it’s an awesome feeling,” Emily Thomes said. “I wouldn’t trade it for anything. I wouldn’t trade this year for anything. This is definitely something that I won’t forget because it was so much fun. It’s something that most kids in the school don’t get to be a part of.”

  • Williamstown seniors say goodbye

    While Taylor Eldridge has played basketball for Williamstown for the past seven years, Mekayla Pendleton was looking to make the most of her senior year.

    “This was my last chance to play,” Pendleton said. “This was my senior year and I wanted to play. I just like playing basketball.”

    Pendleton joined Eldridge as seniors for this year’s girls’ basketball team. Eldridge kept coming back year after year because of the bonds that she made with her teammates and how she grew in that time.

  • Middle school players gain...

    The Williamstown middle school basketball teams were battling reduced numbers, but not reduced optimism.

    On the girls’ side, they had players for a sixth and seventh grade team, but not an eighth grade team. On the boys’ side, they were able to field a team for seventh and eighth grade games, but not for a sixth grade team.

  • WHS cheerleaders’...

    When the Williamstown boys and girls’ basketball seasons came to a close, it also meant an end to the cheerleading careers for six Williamstown cheerleaders.

    Ashley Farley, Nicole Hendy, Shelby Horn, Sara Moreland, Rachel Morris and Katie Webster have each cheered for Williamstown for different lengths of time, but they know the impact that their class has had.

  • Husband, Father, Coach

    Carl Wenderoth and Hall of Fame go together like basketball and Kentucky.

    Wenderoth, the former basketball coach at Grant County High School, was inducted into the 8th region Hall of Fame in between region semifinal games on March 8. This was the second inductee class from the 8th region.

    “I don’t know what to say because it came up this past weekend and caught me by surprise,” Wenderoth said.

  • Senior duo led GCHS cheerleaders

    When Danielle Hayek decided to return to Grant County after being away for three years, she knew she wanted to wear blue and gold as a Grant County High School cheerleader.

    She spent the last two years at Simon Kenton High School before trying out for the GCHS varsity squad. When Hayek made it, she joined Paige Mudman as the lone seniors.

    The early practices weren’t easy for Hayek, as the close-knit group treated her as an outsider, but with her work ethic, she won the girls over and now Mudman and Hayek call each other best friends.
