  • Lady Demons end softball season...

    Any time a team finishes with the same number of hits and errors, it usually equals a recipe for disaster.

    Such was the case for the Williamstown High School softball team in the first round of the 32nd District Softball Tournament last week.

    The Lady Demons fell victim to Simon Kenton 10-0 in six innings, amassing only four hits and committing four errors. With the loss, Williamstown's season came to an end, as did its two-year run of advancing to the finals and the regional tournament.

  • Road to four straight district...

    One inning.

    That is how close the Grant County High School softball team came to winning its fourth consecutive 32nd District championship on May 23.

    Rather than hoist the champion's trophy, the Lady Braves left with the runner-up plaque, which they dedicated to fallen classmate Joshua Lilly, following a 3-1 loss to host Simon Kenton in the final. Despite the loss, Grant County advanced to the 8th Region Tournament, which opened earlier this week at Oldham County.

  • 'This win is for Josh'

    While it would have been easy for the Grant County High School baseball team to go through the motions upon hearing the news of the death of a classmate on May 23, the senior members of the baseball team would not let that happen.

    Rather than suffer a defeat at the hands of Simon Kenton, the Braves dedicated their game and ensuing victory to fellow classmate Josh Lilly.

  • Grant County ends Williamstown...

    For a month, the Grant County High School baseball team listened to its coaching staff about their 15-5 loss to 32nd District and county rival Williamstown.

    On May 21, the Braves put an end to all the talk, thumping out nine hits en route to a 9-1 victory over Williamstown in the first round of the 32nd District Tournament. The loss ended the season for the Demons (15-14).

    "This is a pretty good win. We wanted to come out and beat them after the last time we played them. We wanted to show them that we were here to win," GCHS second baseman Aaron Goe said.

  • District Champs: Grant County...

    All season long, the Grant County High School team had heard about how they could not win a district championship, questioned why they were not ranked despite defeating top-ranked teams and held onto a dream.

    On May 23, the Braves quieted their detractors and watched a dream become a reality, defeating Simon Kenton 5-4 in the finals of the 32nd District Tournament at Williamstown High School.

    "This is an amazing feeling," senior short stop Josh Cummins said.

    Senior third baseman Colton Perry echoed Cummins' sentiments.

  • Gregg resigns as Grant County...

    After 18 seasons coaching on various levels and various schools, including both Williamstown and Grant County high schools, Marlin Gregg is officially hanging up his cleats, resigning at the end of the Grant County High School softball season.

    Gregg, who is also the assistant principal at Grant County High School, plans to pursue other opportunities. He was named the softball coach following the resignation of Ott Reed last season.

  • Walters overcomes injuries,...

    Lacy Walters knows how it feels to have something you love taken away.

    As a freshman member of the University of the Cumberlands softball team, Walter underwent surgery to repair two tears in her labrum, putting her career on hold for a season. The labrum is a lip-like projection of cartilage on the shoulder blade.

  • Gridiron Gang—GCMS...

    A season removed from an unprecedented undefeated record, the Grant County Middle School football team picked up right where it left off with a strong showing in its spring game on May 16.

    Tyler Robinson, who rushed for approximately 2,200 yards and 38 touchdowns last season, showed no signs of rust, rushing for over 100 yards and three touchdowns. In two spring games, Robinson has rushed for nine touchdowns.

    Also playing well offensively was Dustin Haar, who played tight end and halfback and rushed for a 75-yard touchdown.
