  • Cummins gets his wish to run in...

    Jordan Cummins got his dream to come true, signing a national letter of intent with Jacksonville State University (Ala.) March 1.

    “I like running in warmer climates,” he said. “Jacksonville State is on the Gulf Coast and travel in warmer areas so I felt it was a great fit for me.”

    JSU is a Division I school and for Cummins that was an opportunity he couldn’t pass up.

    “I fit into the program really well,” he said. “On the plus side, my aunt only lives an hour from campus.”

  • Highlights of the 2010-2011...

    Amongst the many trials and tribulations that a basketball program goes through, the four programs in Grant County saw some highlights for the season that will be remembered.

    There were career milestones for multiple players, including Williamstown senior Tori Wilhoit, who scored her 1,500th career point on Jan. 11 and nabbed 1,500 rebounds in her outstanding career.

    Braves lonely senior Josh Blackburn scored 31 points against Owen County Feb. 5, a career high, but still was not happy with the outcome of the game, as they lost 73-67.


    Despite being a first-year team, the Williamstown High School dance team brought home first place honors.

    They won the national championship for hip-hop division and placed second in the pom-pom division at the Cheer Elite’s Bluegrass National Championships March 5 in Lexington.

    Coach Angie Williams said she couldn’t believe it when they announced Williamstown to come up on stage.

  • Trio end basketball careers...

    As the final seconds ran down to zero, the careers of Haley Rothwell, Chelsea West and Tori Wilhoit came to an end for Lady Demons’ basketball, falling 54-34 to Walton-Verona Feb. 22 at Simon Kenton High School.

    The evening didn’t start out well for Williamstown as they only mustered two points in the first quarter and trailed 15-2.

    It was not exactly what West was expecting going into the game.
