    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.

  • GCHS volleyball falls to Lady...

    “I think we all really left it out on the court,” said Grant County High School senior Casey Hinton. “Tonight was the best I’ve ever played in districts and I’m just super proud of how we played.”

    The Lady Braves took on the Walton-Verona Lady Bearcats on Oct. 21 in the 32nd Districts volleyball game at Simon Kenton High School.
    Even though districts was the best the team played this season, the Lady Braves fell to Walton in all three sets.


    The 32nd districts for volleyball were held Oct. 21 at Simon Kenton High School where the Williamstown Lady Demons faced the Simon Kenton Lady Pioneers.

    The Lady Demons fought hard to make it to the district title game but Simon Kenton beat them in three sets.
    In the first half of the third set, Simon Kenton only had a two-point lead. WHS, cheered on by the crowd, were within reach of a win, but it wasn’t meant to be.

  • Lady Demons volleyball falls to...

    On Oct. 15, the Williamstown High School junior varsity and varsity volleyball teams took on the Walton-Verona Lady Bearcats for their second to last game of the season.

    At the start of the night, the WHS junior varsity volleyball team played admirably against Walton. In the first game, the Lady Demons struggled to find a lead against the Lady Bearcats and finished the first game at a 21-11 loss.
