  • GCHS Braves remain unbeaten

    Even as the schedule gets tougher, the Grant County Braves’ soccer team remains impressive.

    Playing the two toughest opponents of the young season, Grant County remained undefeated with a win and a tie in last week’s action, leaving the Braves as one of only two unbeaten teams in Kentucky’s Region 8 at 3-0-1.

  • Lady Braves make progress

    If you judge the Grant County High School girls’ soccer team by wins and losses, you’re missing a lot of the story.

    Standing at 1-3 after two weeks of play, Grant County’s record does not show the progress the team has made and the effort, or even how well the team has played while facing tough competition.

  • GCHS Braves steamroll Owen Rebels

    Despite the Grant County High School Braves football face off with rival Owen County being postponed to Sunday because of bad weather, the Braves steamrolled the Owen County Rebels in a victory of 35-10.

    That game against the Rebels showed vast improvement for the football team since the season began.

    Both offense and defense showed exceptional skill, which was evident when quarterback Joseph Knipp passed to running back Derek Sutherland for the first touchdown at the beginning of the first quarter.


    FOOTBALL PLAYER OF THE WEEK - Derek Sutherland,  a senior, has been selected as GCHS Player of the Week. Sutherland scored two touchdowns, one on a punt return and the other on a 20-yard touchdown pass from Joseph Knipp. He also played well on defense, said Coach Kevin Siple.

  • WHS Lady Demons golfers keep...

    Despite being a young team that features a junior, two sophomores and a pair of middle schoolers as the top scorers, Williamstown High School girls’ golf coach Ed Burton has seen nothing but progress from the Lady Demons.

    With three players having already topped their previous personal best scores, Williamstown is off to a positive start and currently owns a record of 3-3-1, which isn’t bad, but doesn’t match the effort put in by the Lady Demons, according to Burton.

  • Lady Braves prepare for Bracken...

    The Grant County High School Lady Braves volleyball team were defeated by the Walton-Verona Lady Bearcats on Aug. 28th with a score of 3-0.

    Despite losing the game, sophomores, Emily Livingood and Meagan Kinard, are optimistically looking forward to the rest of the season.

  • Hard work pays off for WHS golfer

    A lot of hard work and dedication are paying off for Williamstown High School sophomore Hannah Scroggins.

    After years spent on the golf course perfecting her game, Scroggins capitalized on her opportunity to shine at the recent All ‘A’ Classic Regional Championships, finishing third overall to earn a trip to the state tournament scheduled for Sept. 7 at Woodson Bend Resort in Burnside.

  • Lady Demons struggle to stay in...

    On Aug. 22, the Williamstown Lady Demons volleyball team took on the Henry County Wildcats at Williamstown High School.
    The second round match proved that both teams desperately wanted a victory as the score board reflected a close race to first place.
    In the end, Henry Co. won 2-0 against the Lady Demons with the first match at 25-12 and the second at 25-22.

  • Lady Braves fall to Lady Rebels

    The Grant County Lady Braves volleyball team took on the Owen County Lady Rebels on Aug. 22 and the final score of 3-2 doesn’t describe the back and forth action between the two teams.

    “The highlight of the game was definitely game five and probably the last three points, both teams really wanted it. They wanted it bad. And you could tell that we both just fought as hard as we could,” Grant County senior, Macall Knight, said right after the final match up.

  • GCMS football takes to gridiron...

    It’s not where you start. It’s where you finish that matters. So it should come as no surprise that Grant County Middle School football coach Jamie Dalzell is more concerned with how his team plays down the stretch than he is with how the Braves have fared thus far.

    The Braves have won just one game through three weeks of play after a pair of losses at Harrison County in the Rumble on the Hilltop football showcase held this past weekend in Cynthiana.
