    Back-to-back district championships had not been accomplished by a Braves team in 25 years dating back to the 1988-1989 season.

  • Lady Demons lose in district...

    The Williamstown Lady Demons entered the District 32 matchup with Walton Verona with ideas of upsetting the Lady Bearcats.

    Both teams exchanged baskets throughout a first quarter that ended with a tie score of 13-13.  
    The Bearcats jumped out early to a 6-2 lead.

  • Lady Braves fall in districts

    The 32nd district basketball tournament was held last week at Simon Kenton.

    The Lady Braves were seeded fourth so they inherited the unenviable task of a first round game against the number one seed and home team Simon Kenton Lady Pioneers.

    Coming into the game, there was a sense of uncertainty as to which Lady Braves team would show up; the team that led the Pioneers until the waning moments of the first meeting this season or the team that didn’t show up in a blowout game in the second meeting.

  • Grant County Braves defeat WV 53...

    On a cold winter night, the Grant County Braves defeated the Walton Verona Bearcats by a score of 53-47.  
    The District 32 battle was played at Simon Kenton High School on Feb. 24.  

    Prior to the game, both teams introduced seniors and their parents because both senior nights had been cancelled due to bad weather.
    The cold weather came inside a packed gymnasium for the game.  
    It translated into cold shooting and turnovers for both teams throughout the first three quarters of the game.

  • WHS falls to Polar Bears

    Brennan Stanley, Jon Jump and Dustin Smith did the best they could to keep the Williamstown Demons close but in the end the Polar Bears of Bracken County wound up winning 86-71 at Williamstown High School on Feb. 9.
    The Demons entered the contest posting just four wins on the season but you could not tell it by how hard they played from start to finish.  

  • Rough week for Lady Braves

    “Things turn out best for the people who make the best of the way things turn out.” Legendary coach John Wooden.
    Despite three straight road defeats last week, the Lady Braves continue to play hard each time they tep on the court.
    At times it seemed the Lady Braves were playing against their opponents and the referees.  
    On Feb. 3 against Walton, costly turnovers and poor shooting, along with questionable officiating did in the Braves as they fell 61-40 to the Bearcats.
