  • GCHS boys’ soccer getting back to fundamentals

    After falling to 0-3 on the season with a 5-0 loss to Scott County Aug. 25 at Grant County Middle School, Braves soccer coach David Schmitt has the team working on the fundamentals of soccer.

    Schmitt said the team looked like they were making progress after a 1-0 loss to Harrison County on Aug. 23, but with the loss to the Cardinals, it was more like a step backwards.

    “Hopefully, we will get that turned around with a couple of wins this week and gain some intensity and confidence,” he said.

  • ‘Are you part of my church?’

    When I first started in the ministry, I had taken a second job working at a Wal-mart stocking shelves at night. And one night when I was on break, a fellow worker sat down next to me. This guy was a big muscle guy who had been a former boxer. He looked mean (and ugly). He sat down across from me and said, “Isn’t it true you are a preacher?” I said yes, and he asked me if I liked to debate. I said no, I’m not much of a debater, but he kept pressing it, so I said, “sure what’s the topic?”

  • Lady Braves sweep W’town 2-0

    For the first time since Sept. 18, 2008, the Grant County High School Lady Braves can say they defeated the Williamstown Lady Demons in volleyball.

    Even though it was exciting for coach Kelli Lee to get the win over Williamstown, she was happy for some other aspects of the game.

    “The most exciting part for me was that the girls stayed calm,” she said. “They continued to take it one ball at a time and not look at the score like they needed six points. They kept their composure.”
