  • Mason sets goal high for WHS

    Believing you have to play the best to be the best you can be, Coach Kasey Mason continues to toughen her team’s schedule as she builds the program at Williamstown High School.
    After last season’s 12-win campaign, the best for the program in at least 20 years, Mason upped the level of competition her team will face during the 2013/14 season in an attempt to take the program to the next level.

  • Lady Demons want to keep on...

    Improving from six wins in Coach Kasey Mason’s first year on the job to 12 victories in her encore season left no doubt about the direction the Williamstown Lady Demons basketball program is headed.

    And despite losing some key players from last season’s squad, the third-year coach and her players have their sights set higher in 2014.
    Among the Lady Demons’ goals are to finish with a winning percent of .500 or better and continue to work their way closer to a 20-win season, both of which Mason feels are obtainable goals for her rising program.

  • Braves Basketball
  • West sets ‘different’ kind of...

    As a result of the 8th Region tournament being held at Grant County High School in 2014, the Lady Braves’ regular schedule will look a little different this season.
    With other teams wanting to get some time on the Grant County floor and the Lady Braves wanting to see more regional opponents in preparation for a strong post-season run, the Lady Braves have added more 8th Region games to their schedule.

  • Lady Braves have high...

    Shawn West’s first year on the job with the Grant County Lady Braves couldn’t have went any better with the team returning to the regional tourament for the first time in seven years while posting the third most wins for the program since the turn of the century.
    But with success comes even higher expectations, a role West and his Lady Braves covet heading into the 2013/14 campaign despite graduating five players, including three starters, from last season’s squad.

  • Lady Braves beat Bellevue,...

     Local basketball fans had plenty to keep them busy on opening night with both Grant County and Williamstown playing at home in girls’ high school basketball action.

    Grant County gaves its fans plenty to celebrate with a 50-38 victory over Bellevue in a non-region contest. Meanwhile, Williamstown was not as fortunate, facing Simon Kenton in an almost David-vs-Golaith situation that saw the Lady Demons fall 82-20 versus the regional power.

  • GCHS hosts Braves Madness

    This fall girls from Crittenden Mt. Zion Elementary have been training to complete the Girls on the Run 5K.

    The race took place at Sawyer Point on Nov. 16.
    Twelve runners participated with their running buddies to finish the eighth season of Girls on the Run in Grant County. Since 2010, 325 girls have participated in the program.

    In 2013, the program received over $9,900 in regional scholarship funds directly benefitting participants in Grant County. Grant County Parks and Recreation coordinates the program locally.

  • WHS boys focus on winning

    It’s been nearly five years since the Williamstown High School boys’ basketball team won a regular-season district game and nearly a decade since the Demons last tasted success in the post-season district tournament.

  • Harden sets tough schedule for...

    Winning breeds winning. And Williamstown High School boys’ basketball coach Roger Harden knows this  well. So it would be understandable if the second- year head coach lightened the schedule for his program in an attempt to win more games.
    But the former University of Kentucky standout is having none of that, insisting that playing the best of the best is the way to return the Williamstown program to prominence in the 8th Region.
