  • Braves sweep Demons

    No matter how big a lead, the Grant County-Williamstown rivalry always seems to come down to the final few minutes.

    Grant County, leading by as many as 13 points in the fourth quarter, held on for a 78-69 victory after Williamstown cut their lead to four. The Braves won both games of the regular season rivalry.

  • 30 years later - the team that...

    As the seconds ticked off the clock, the Grant County Braves turned to see their faithful fans unfurl a banner that said “Braves – Region Eight Champs.”

    Thirty years later, it’s a memory that has stuck with the players from the 1978-79 GCHS boys’ basketball team.

  • Demons fall in 'All A'

    Believing that his team had a size advantage, coach Stacey May was dissapointed when the Williamstown Demons lost to Walton-Verona in the All “A” Tournament.

    “We didn’t really play bad, but we didn’t hit shots,” May said. “If we hit some of the shots we took, I’m talking about how well we played. This game, we didn’t play bad; we just missed shots. Walton was pretty consistent shooting the ball.”

  • Lady Braves earn win against...

    While snow fell outside the Grant County gymnasium, the Lady Braves warmed up their fans with a shot-making showcase against rival Williamstown.

    The Lady Braves split the season series with Williamstown after coming away with a 53-45 victory.

    “It was three nice wins for us,” GCHS coach Darrell Guffey said. “The freshman won, the JV won and the varsity won. We grew up a lot tonight. We gained some game situation experience and it was a nice win for our players. I’m happy for our girls.”

  • 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...
