    History was made by the Grant County Lady Braves soccer team.
    The girls’ soccer team defeated host Henry County Ladycats 2-1 on Oct. 21 for the program’s first-ever regional tournament victory.

  • Lady Braves advance in district...

    Entering post-season play on a four-game losing streak against an opponent on a four-game winning streak, Grant County girls’ soccer coach Ron Maddox knew his Lady Braves would have to play at their highest level to survive.

    And that’s exactly what they did.

    Grant County got outstanding play from all corners of the field in a thrilling 1-0 victory over Walton-Verona in first-round action of the District 32 Tournament Monday at Simon Kenton High School.

  • Grant Braves fall in district...

    The 2013 season was a tale of two halves for the Grant County Braves’ soccer team.
    Grant County ended the first month of the season with a stellar 9-2 record and was among the region’s best in both goals for and against.
    The Braves were also fresh off a Dry Ridge Toyota Cup championship.
    But the second half of the season was just the opposite as the Braves went 1-6 the rest of the way, including Monday’s 4-0 loss to Walton-Verona in the 32nd District Tournament at Simon Kenton High School that ended Grant County’s season.

  • Rivalry takes center court

    The Williamstown High School Lady Demons volleyball team traveled up the road to Grant County High School Oct. 9 for a match-up against the Grant County Lady Braves.

    The gymnasium was full and loud with cheers during the county rivalry – fans even rose to their feet during a couple of bumps, sets and spikes.
    The Lady Braves ended up dominating the evening with a win of 3-0 over the Lady Demons – something that meant a lot to Grant County High School senior, Macall Knight.

  • Grant Braves fall to South...

    Friday night was not a good night for the Grant County Braves. The night finally ended with a score of 43-3 with the South Oldham Dragons as the victors.
    Coach Kevin Siple said that losing a game is tough for everyone.

    “Keeping the players, parents and even coaches from getting down is difficult,” Siple said. “The kids put so much into football and work hard.”
    The loss to South Oldham, means the Braves have one win and five losses so far this season, but they with four games to go, Siple hopes the team can focus on the field.

  • Braves soccer team closes out...

    Losing four times during a five-game stretch with the post-season just around the corner would normally be enough to keep a coach up at night. But while he recognizes his team’s misfortunes of late, Grant County boys’ soccer coach Garrett Griffith isn’t losing any sleep.

  • Lady Braves take swing at state...

     Nine holes into the regional golf championships, Grant County coach Marcus Camacho must have felt like he was trapped in a horrible nightmare with his team struggling, despite playing on its home course.

    But the Lady Braves rebounded on the back nine with some of their
    best golf of the season to finish regional runners up and earn a spot in the state golf championships to be held this week in Bowling Green.


    The Williamstown cross country team hosted their annual invitational on Saturday. Twenty-three schools attended, with over 500 athletes competing, including students in grades kindergarten through twelfth grade. Races began at 9:00 a.m. and continued throughout the day, with rain in the afternoon causing the primary girls’ and boys’ races to be combined.
