  • GCHS Braves soccer gets off on...

    Every coach knows the importance of getting the season off to a good start. But first-year Grant County boys’ soccer coach Garrett Griffith couldn’t have ask for more from his Braves.
    Grant County opened it’s season in impressive fashion with a 5-0 victory over visiting Covington Holmes, followed by a 6-1 win over Covington Latin. The two wins are one-third of last season’s win total, and the 11 goals in two games gives the Braves one-forth of what they had all of last season.

  • Cody Kellam leads GCHS golf team

    Continued improvement throughout the regular season is always a top priority for any athletic program. So Grant County High Schools boys’ golf coach Cale Barr is especially pleased with his team.

    The Braves, who have flashed signs of greatness throughout the first-half of their season, continued to improve in their two most recent matches, beating Owen County by 14 strokes early in the week and then playing their best game as a team this season with a fourth place finish at the Commodore Classic hosted by Tates Creek High School on Aug. 24.

    The team’s next game is scheduled for Aug. 28 at home against Boone County.

  • Braves work to bring more fan...

    Old habits are hard to break. But that’s exactly what second-year coach Kevin Siple is in the process of doing with the Grant County High School football program.

    Siple, who was hired to lead the program before the 2012 season, knew when he took the job that turning around a Braves’ team that has had only two winning seasons was not going to be easy. And it wasn’t going to happen quickly, either. But even he didn’t fully expect the kind of improvement he’s seen after just one full year on the job.

  • Turnovers contribute to Braves’...

    By Wade Holland

    On the surface, Grant County High School’s season-opening loss on the road at Middlesboro could be viewed as a major disappointment and as a sign of things to come for the young Braves. But second-year head coach Kevin Siple warns against it.
    Middlesboro, one of the state’s top Class 2A programs, had little trouble with the visiting Braves, building an early lead and never looking back in a 48-20 win. Siple found more positives than negatives in the defeat to the tradition-rich Yellowjackets.
