     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.”
