  • Gridiron Grit


     It was a day of many emotions among the hearts and minds of the Braves fans and players. It was a day of spirit, hope and glory. It was a day of anxiety, cheers, sadness, relief, pride and fear. But most of all it was a day of fun and excitement as the Midgets, MIghty Pro and Power House teams from Grant County took the field on Nov. 2 in the Greater North Central Kentucky Youth Football League Superbowl.

    This marked the first time three teams from a county earned the right to play in the event.

  • Grant Braves end season, fall to...

    To most high school football programs, a 35-point loss in November would not be worth taking about. But for the Grant County Braves, it’s progress.
    Grant County turned in one of its better performances of the season in a 35-0 defeat to visiting North Laurel on Nov. 1, putting an end to the Braves’ season.
    The 35-point difference is as close as the Braves have come since back in September when they came within 21 points of a win in back-to-back games.

  • Grant County moves on to state...

    Grant County runners competed in the Region 5 Class AAA regionals Nov. 2 at Sherman Elementary. Five members of the team qualified for the state meet: sophomores Hayley Leach and Jordan Rose, eighth grader Summer Dearing and seventh graders Molly Howell and Benjamin Spratt. They will be traveling to the Kentucky Horse Park on Nov. 9, to compete against the top high school runners in the state.


    The Williamstown junior varsity/varsity cross country team finished their season Nov. 2 at Sherman Elementary at the Class A regionals.

    In “perfect running weather”, the season ended on a successful note as several runners hit their personal best times. Although no team members qualified for state this year, Coach Mark Kinsey was pleased with the overall performance of the teams.

    “We had a lot of newcomers who have really improved this year,” he said. “We also were able to have two complete teams compete at regionals.”


    Three teams move on to championship games Nov. 3


  • Williamstown Cross Country
  • Tyler Carr signs with Shawnee...

    Former Grant County Braves basketball player Tyler Carr has received a full athletic scholarship for men’s basketball to Shawnee State University in Portsmouth, Ohio. Carr signed his letter of intent Oct. 25th, with many family, friends and teammates on hand to show their support.


    The 2013 season came to an end Oct. 22 for the Grant County Lady Braves in the second round of the 8th Region tournament. The team lost 3-0 to South Oldham High School at Shelby County. Despite a 7-11-1 record, the Lady Braves went the furthest in the postseason in the program’s history.

  • Jaguars pounce on Grant Braves

    While there are obvious improvements being made each game, the end result for the Grant County Braves remained the same.
    Grant County missed the playoffs for the fifth consecutive season, and sixth time in seven seasons since Kentucky went to a five-class system and the Braves moved up from Class 3A to 5A, with a 49-6 loss Oct. 25 to the visiting Cooper Jaguars.

  • Grant Braves fall to Conner...

    Focused on stopping the run, Grant County had no answer for the high-powered passing attack from the Conner Cougars on Oct. 18 in Hebron.

    The Cougars, ranked number four in the state, amassed 323 yards passing, including four touchdowns through the air, in a 53-6 win over Grant County. The Cougars totaled 540 yards of offense, including 217 yards rushing.

     Conner came out of the gate firing and was not shy about putting the ball in the air. The Cougars passed the ball on the first play of the game and continued firing until the score was well out of reach.
