  • Weather continues to hamper Lady...

    Marlin Gregg is faced with a possible dilemma that is out of his control as his team prepares for its trip to Alabama.

    Should this week's games at Highlands and Owen County be postponed due to weather, it would be approximately six days since Gregg and his Grant County softball team saw the field against an opponent.

    "I was really wanting to get a game in before we left," said Gregg, whose team hits the road for the Huntsville Hospital Sports Center Tournament this week.

  • Grant County baseball team wants...

    Grant County High School baseball coach Van Duncan knew what he was doing when he made the schedule, which featured games against Harrison County and Gallatin County, in addition to seven consecutive away games to open the season.

    "I wanted our team to be tested and ready once we got into the district portion of our schedule," Duncan said.

    Two games into the season, the experiment has come with mixed results for the Braves, who lost 13-4 to Harrison County and defeated Gallatin County 4-3 last week.

  • Lady Demons win opener, fall in...

    Two games into the season, Williamstown High School softball coach Mark Wilhoit has seen several surprises, both good and bad.

    In a 16-2 season opening win over St. Henry on March 26, it was the Lady Demons' hitting that proved to be the surprise, as Williamstown belted 14 total hits.

    "We hit much better than I thought we would," Wilhoit said.

  • Williamstown, Grant County...

    When the Williamstown High School softball team heads to Florida later this week, coach Mark Wilhoit will remind his team that while it is spring break, they have four games on the schedule.

    After playing in a tournament in Tennessee last year, Wilhoit made the decision to travel to Florida this year and his team will square off against Union County (KY), Henderson County (KY), Apollo (KY) and Maryville (TN).

    All four teams will provide tough competition for the Lady Demons, according to Wilhoit.

  • Chelsea Roy adapts to softball...

    Chelsea Roy knew this season would be a learning one as she was entering a different brand of softball and new surroundings.

    The former Grant County High School softball pitcher is in her first season of college softball, pitching for the Northern Kentucky University Norse and, despite bringing a 1-3 record into this week, Roy acknowledges that all is well for her.

  • GCHS defensive standout Scott...

    It would have been easy for Grant County High School linebacker Scott Sharrock to quit during his career.

    He readily admits he wasn't the biggest or fastest player on the gridiron, and what he didn't have in God-given abilities, the senior made up for with the size of his heart along with hard work and determination.

    "It wasn't always easy for me. I have always let that serve as motivation for me on the field," Sharrock said.

  • WHS Demons dismantle Walton-...

    The last time the Williamstown High School baseball team squared off with 32nd District opponent Walton-Verona, it was the Demons that walked away with their heads hanging and sour looks upon their faces following a season-ending 8-6 loss in the district tournament.

  • Now batting Billy Crystal? Are...

    It must really be nice to be Billy Crystal. I wouldn't know, but based on the fact that he got to kiss Meg Ryan in "When Harry Met Sally" and hung out with Danny DeVito in "Throw Momma From The Train," I'm guessing things are not too bad for the 60-year-old Crystal.

    With that said, can someone please explain to me something that has bothered me for a few weeks and came back up during Williamstown's season opening baseball game at Walton-Verona Monday night—what in the world was Crystal doing in a New York Yankees uniform?
