  • Braves shoot down Shelby County...

    For a moment, the Grant County High School gym was silent.

    Shelby County had the ball with 5.4 seconds left and were down 62-60. They took the ball out and drove to the left of the paint, hoping for a foul call or a chance at a decent shot. The guard put the shot up and as it floated skyward, silence overtook the gym.

    That silence was broken by the clank of the ball off the rim and the excited shouting.

  • Gallatin County defeats...

    Although they were down, the Williamstown boys’ basketball team kept fighting to make a comeback against Gallatin County.

    Their attempt came up short, as the Wildcats came away with a win on Williamstown’s floor. The Demons lost 54-49 on Jan. 15.

  • GCHS boys lose first district...

    As their game against Simon Kenton wound down in the final seconds, the GCHS boys’ basketball team were given something to remember if the two teams meet again.

    A Simon Kenton player waved his hands for the crowd to get louder and then after the buzzer sounded, walked off the court yelling, “This is our district!”

  • GCHS cheerleaders win...

    The Grant County High School varsity cheerleaders set a goal at the beginning of the season to return to state as region champions and they didn’t dissapoint.

    They were ready, focused and set to perform when a fire alarm went off, but after a delay, they were still anxious to perform.

  • Lady Braves defeat Cooper, fall...

    With a win over Cooper High School, the GCHS Lady Braves showed the ability they have and how well they can play defense.

    The Lady Braves shut down Cooper, coming away with a 44-36 victory on Jan. 16.

    “We had a slow first half and couldn’t get things going very well,” coach Darrell Guffey said. “We played a pretty good second half and a really good fourth quarter. We settled down and played better. We had some players step up. Tyanna Workman made some plays and our guards settled in and got better in the second half.”

  • GCMS sixth grade team enjoys...

    The Grant County Middle School sixth grade basketball team won their home game against the Conner sixth grade team 34-29 on Jan. 6.

    Grant County was led by Trent Wainscott, who had 14 points and nine rebounds, while Austin Johnson scored six points, had eight assists and four steals. There were other contributors with Seth Adkins hitting a three point shot to give the Braves a 12-9 half-time advantage.

    Jordan Saylor, Brendan Dills and Jason Goe all hit key baskets down the stretch to close out the game. The sixth graders are coached by Steve Kellam.

  • Lady Demons end All “A...

    The Williamstown girls’ basketball team wanted to bring the All “A” championship home, after missing it last year by two points.

    The Lady Demons were up 10 points with three minutes left to go before Carroll County started to press, forcing turnovers and hitting three pointers down the stretch to take the lead and a 57-53 win on Jan. 14.

  • CAT ATTACK 1-26-09

    The Kentucky Wildcats traveled down south the past weekend to face off against Alabama’s Crimson Tide. The only thing more odd than this team’s mascot was the game itself. It would be overly polite to say the game was a defensive struggle. Anyone other than Jodie Meeks seemed unable to make a shot as the team had more turnovers than made baskets in the first half. The sad thing was that Kentucky actually shot a slightly higher percentage than Alabama in the first half, but still only managed to score 19 points. Yes, 19 points.

  • CAT ATTACK

    In the 2009 edition of the “battle of ferocious felines”, the Kentucky Wildcats claimed sole possession of first place in the Southeastern Conference with what most would call an ugly win. Prior to the game Coach Gillispie and his players warned us that Auburn would be a difficult match up for the Cats and even went as far as to compare them to, gulp, VMI. If that doesn’t nauseate you something is wrong. Unlike the aforementioned school, Auburn wasn’t necessarily to blame for most of the turnovers the Cats committed.

  • Lady Demons get district win

    With the way the Williamstown Lady Demons were playing, not even a three pointer at the buzzer could stop them from taking down Walton-Verona on the road.

    The Lady Demons came away with a 45-44 win on Jan. 9.
