  • Grant County travels to Oldham,...

    As hard as they tried, the Grant County High School football team couldn’t ruin two homecomings in a row.

    On Oct. 3, the Braves dampened Scott High School’s homecoming festivities by beating them 26-20. They tried to do the same thing against Oldham County on Oct. 10, but came away with a 49-22 loss.

    “It boiled down to not making mistakes against a good football team and expecting to win,” coach Mike Davis said. “But even though we were down, we didn’t quit. We came back in the second half and made a fight of it.”

  • Gallatin ends Lady Braves...

    With the success the Grant County volleyball team has enjoyed this year, they had hoped to continue winning in the district tournament.

    Unfortunately for the Lady Braves, Gallatin County ended their run, defeating Grant County in two games. Grant County led early in both games, but still lost 25-18 and 25-22.

  • Soccer teams showcase seniors

    Although their senior nights might not have gone as they planned, Grant County’s soccer teams have set their sights on success in the postseason.

    On Oct. 8, the Lady Braves lost to Paris 1-0. The next night, the Braves went down to Ryle 5-0.

    “We played this team earlier in the season and lost 8-0,” girls’ coach Eric Ashcraft said. “To play this game and end up 1-0, it’s impressive. We’re a totally different team than when we started the season.”

  • Shipp leads by quiet example

    For six years, Lindsey Shipp has played golf for Grant County High School. In that time, she’s learned how to translate what she learned on the golf course to her life.

    “I’ve learned how to recover and to keep my composure,” Shipp said. “It helps when you set your tone and encourage others while you’re playing.”

    Shipp first got into the game because of her grandparents, Kline and Nora Lee Shipp, and parents, Scott and Sherry Shipp, who she tagged along with to the golf course.

  • State tournament halts golfers...

    Two golfers made it to state, but still wanted to do more than just make an appearance.

    Ali Rich, representing Williamstown, and Zach Wright, representing Grant County, each earned their way to state by qualifying at their regional tournaments. They both had hopes of making the first day cut and competing for the state title on the second day, but each missed the cut at the Bowling Green Country Club.

    Rich, a sophomore, shot a 92, six strokes more than the cut of 86. Wright, also a sophomore, shot an 83, five strokes more than the cut of 78.

  • West tabbed as new Williamstown...

    Since 1982, T.J. West has coached baseball, but all that will change this season when the veteran Williamstown coach embarks on a new challenge.

    The new challenge will send West to a smaller diamond as he was recently introduced as the new softball coach. West replaces Mark Wilhoit who resigned at the conclusion of this season.

  • The Clock is Ticking: Braves...

    Their first true test on the gridiron was what the Grant County High School football team expected.

    In their scrimmages against both Fleming County and Carroll County on Aug. 15, the Braves managed to do some things well, struggled in other aspects and gave themselves and coach Mike Davis a better feel for where they stand prior to next weeks season opener against Pendleton County.

  • Lady Demons off to rough start

    It would be easy for Williamstown High School volleyball coach Kim Anglin to be upset with her team opening the season 0-2, but the first-year coach knows that it is all a work in progress toward a bigger goal.

    "The first week didn't go as I would have liked. We competed, but we had mental mistakes and we beat ourselves. I think the combination of a new coach, new players and a new style had a lot to do with our results. I look at it as a learning session and now we are ready," said Anglin, whose team lost to Carroll County and Pendleton County last week.

  • GCMS Braves thump East Oldham 44...

    If there was any concern heading into the Grant County Middle School football team's season opener about the Braves resting on their laurels after a perfect 12-0 season last year, head coach Jamey Dalzell delivered a message that was loud and clear to his team—deliver a knockout punch.

    That message was received and carried out as Josh Gutman and Cody Miskell opened the game with a bone-crushing tackle and GCMS' offense stole the show en route to a 44-0 drubbing of East Oldham on Aug. 16.

  • GCHS Braves enter post Jeremy...

    As his team teed off in its season opener on Aug. 4, Grant County boys' golf coach Lance Robinson took a moment to reflect on the past.

    "I have anticipated this for a while. I am anxious to see how the kids react after advancing to the state tournament last year as a team," Robinson said.

    Robinson also pondered the departure of Jeremy Martin, a golfer who had played for Robinson almost all of his tenure. Martin, who won the regional tournament last year, has since graduated and will play for Northern Kentucky University this season.
