  • GCHS Braves strive for harmony

    Inconsistency has been an issue for the Grant County Braves all season and it continues to plague the team even down the stretch.
    Grant County continued its recent trend of win one, lose one with a win over Carroll County followed by a loss at Owen County, which was then followed by a win over Campbell County and a loss at Conner.
    With three games remaining in the regular season, it’s a habit Coach Brandon Grammer hopes his team can kick before getting into district tournament play.

  • Demons earn first double-digit...

    With their 10th win of the season, the Williamstown Demons continue to reach new highs in a season that has already seen several noteworthy accomplishments for the program.

    The elusive 10th win, which gave the program its first double-digit win season in five years and its second in a decade, came in a victory over visiting Trimble County on Tuesday in what was the Demons’ last home game of the season.

  • Three GCHS senior wrestlers...

    The Grant County High School wrestling program has come a long way in the four years since its inception.
    After not having a member qualify for state during their inaugural season, a lone Brave qualified each of the next two years before taking it another step forward this season with three athletes earning a spot in the state championships.

  • Demons beat Eminence, moves...

    Despite already tripling last season’s win total, the Williamstown Demons are not satisfied and continue to work hard in their quest for the program’s first double-digit winning season in five years.
    Williamstown moved one step closer to its 10th win with a 58-55 victory over Eminence in action this week to put win number nine in the books, matching the most victories for the program since winning 10 games in 2009.

  • Webster invited to Down Under...

    Logan Webster of Williamstown, a senior at Owen County High School, has received an invitation to represent Kentucky on the Western Conference Football team competing in Australia in the summer of 2014.  He is excited for the opportunity to represent his family, school, community, state and country in this once-in-a-lifetime experience. Webster will be joined by fellow football teammate, Logan Lowe.

     He has been playing football since the first grade. He finished his football career on a high note by being named to the 2013 All District team.

  • Lady Braves score back-to-back...

    For the first time in many weeks, the Grant County Lady Braves are all smiles.
    Winners of five of their last six games, including three in a row to start February, the Lady Braves have plenty of reasons to smile, something they had not done often while winning just two games in the first two months of the season.

  • WHS archery qualifies for state

    In only its second year, the Williamstown High School Archery team has quickly seen success and growth.

    Following last year’s journey from state to nationals and finally to the world archery competition in St. Louis, the number of archers nearly doubled to 45 this year.
    The success continued this past weekend as the school placed third out of 32 teams as host of the 8th region archery tournament.

  • Braves topple Carroll County

    Grant County remained one of the hottest teams in the 8th Region with a 69-59 win over Carroll County this week, giving the Braves three wins in their last four games and five victories in their last eight.

    Grant County, which stood at a disappointing 4-9 overall on Jan. 9, have steadily climbed in the standings since and now own an overall record of 9-11 with six games remaining in the regular season.

  • Lady Braves get payback victory

    Six weeks after cross-town rival Williamstown celebrated a victory at Grant County High School, the Grant County Lady Braves returned the favor with a 54-47 win over the host Lady Demons on Jan. 30.
    And it couldn’t have come at a better time for Grant County, which came into the game riding an eight-game losing streak after suffering defeat in 12 of its last 13 games.
