  • Cat Attack 2-8-10

    Well at least the people of Louisiana have Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints winning their first ever Super Bowl this weekend because their LSU Tigers basketball team was manhandled by the Kentucky Wildcats Saturday afternoon.  Clearly this was not anywhere close to the LSU team that beat UK twice last season and won the regular season SEC championship, but the Cats performance was nonetheless impressive.  

    Kentucky wins easily in the Bayou 81-55.  

  • Braves come out on top against...

    A spin move was all Mike Davis needed.

    Davis, a senior at Grant County, waited for the free throw attempt by GCHS junior Jordan Cummins to hit the rim and then Davis spun away from the basket. Luckily, the ball bounced off the rim and into Davis’ hands with seven seconds left.

    The Demons fouled him to stop the clock and Davis followed by sinking two free throws on the way to a 58-56 victory on Jan. 29.

    GC girls beat Bellevue, Newport

    Scores: 43-42, 56-26

    When: Jan. 30, Feb. 1

    Where: Bellevue and Newport High Schools

    What: Against Bellevue, the Lady Braves trailed by three points with 30 seconds left in the game.

    GCHS senior Dawn Plunkett drove to the basket and freshman Billie Hearn intercepted a Lady Tiger’s pass, laying the ball up for the lead with 10 seconds left and the eventual win. Bellevue had entered the game winning nine of their last 11 games.

  • Legacy of leadership

    Entering this season, Grant County’s football team knew that they would rely on their nine seniors.

    The seniors pushed the underclassmen to be at their best and that leadership is what coach Mike Davis will remember most about this class.

  • West scores 1,000th point

    Heading into the Williamstown girls’ basketball game against Trimble County, junior Chelsea West needed 17 points to reach the 1,000th career points milestone.

    She was close to the milestone, but still was focused on playing within the team’s offense, often giving up tough shots to get the ball to open teammates.

    After scoring 10 points in the first half, West was able to get the final seven she needed to reach the milestone in a dominant Williamstown 57-41 win on Jan. 30.

  • Four selected for Olympic...

    Hoping to make a name for Grant County, four girls’ soccer players tried out for the Kentucky Olympic Development Program.

    Grant County Middle School eighth graders Mollie Pelfrey and Bethany Lawrence were selected, along with Grant County High School freshmen Gwen MacAdams and Alexis Willen.

    Oh no, not again. The referee crew from the Kentucky-Vanderbilt game just blew their whistle again.  Those three guys had to be the most warn out people in Rupp by the time the final seconds ran off the clock Saturday evening.  They combined to call 58 total fouls and the teams shot a total of 70 free throws.  Looks like neither team will need to practice free throws this week.

  • All A ends in semis for Demons

    Heartbreaking.

    That’s how WHS senior Storm Mason describes the Demons loss to Walton-Verona in the All A regional semifinals.

    The Demons held a six-point lead over Walton-Verona heading into the fourth quarter of their All A regional semifinal game. Williamstown was unable to hold onto their lead, eventually falling 50-48 on Jan. 22. With a win against Gallatin County, Walton-Verona won the All A regional championship.

  • Cat Attack 1-28-10

    Undefeated season, done. Unblemished SEC record, gone. A #1 ranking that lasted less than a day and a half, over. And all because of a phone call from Barack Obama, why does he have to ruin everything? Just joking Mr. President, not even an executive order from you to arrest Devan Downey could have helped Kentucky on this night. Actually that might have worked. It’s ok, we know you’re busy.
