  • Braves drop season finale to...

    The Braves wanted their season to continue beyond the first round of the 32nd district tournament, but it just wasn’t meant to be, as they fell to Walton-Verona 60-48 Feb. 22 at Simon Kenton High School.

    “When it gets time for playoffs, I always say the first one to 50 wins,” Braves coach Jim Hicks said. “Walton-Verona beat us to 50.”

    Hicks said his team’s youth showed and that Grant County set out what they wanted to do by getting more shots than Walton-Verona (54-40). The shots just didn’t go in for the Braves.

  • Lady Braves finish season with...

    After losing their final regular season game to Owen County Feb. 18, Lady Braves coach Darrell Guffey said his girls need to play four quarters of basketball to get better.

    The same instance occurred in the 32nd District Tournament first round as Grant County fell to Simon Kenton 50-31 Feb. 21.

    “We played really well for three quarters,” Guffey said. “If you take away the second quarter we outscored Simon Kenton 39-36.”

  • Demons season ends on sour note

    The size and speed of the Pioneers was too much for the Demons as they lost 73-37 in the first round of the 32nd District Tournament Feb. 21 at Simon Kenton High School in Independence.

    Simon Kenton started the game on a 13-0 run coasting to the finish in a game that was never close.

    Williamstown coach Steve Sigmon was unhappy with the team’s performance right off the bat, as he called a timeout just a minute into the game  with the score just 2-0.

  • Lady Braves fall short on Senior...

    As the pre-game ceremony began for the Lady Braves seniors Brittany Hearn, Logan Kidwell and Seneca Sullivan, it marked the end of all of the players that were on the team when coach Darrell Guffey came to Grant County in 2006.

    For Guffey, it is tough to see them go.

    “They are such great girls,” he said. “They are special to us and they will always be in our hearts.”

  • Camacho elected into GCHS...

    Diana Camacho became the fifth member and second class of the Grant County High School Athletic Hall of Fame Feb. 17 during a halftime celebration of the Braves/Juggernauts game.

    Camacho attended GCHS from 1994 to 1997 and played golf all four years. In that time she placed as high as third at the state tournament (1996) and was a two-time All-State team member (1995, 1996), according to Eastern Kentucky University  Archives.

  • Braves bid farewell to Blackburn

    At the beginning of the basketball season, the Grant County Braves basketball program had three seniors on the team.

    By season’s end, it was down to senior forward Josh Blackburn.

    At Senior Night Feb. 17, the Braves basketball program bid farewell to Blackburn and seniors from the wrestling team and cheerleading squad before the Braves/Juggernauts game.

    For Blackburn, it was a somber moment.

  • Biddle signs softball letter...

    Taryn Biddle will trade the blue and gold for purple and white as she signed her national letter of intent to play softball at Asbury University Feb. 17.

    “It feels really good,” she said after the signing. “I have wanted this since I started playing and now I signed the paper and it doesn’t feel real.”

    Her decision to choose Asbury was being able to meet Asbury coach Larry McCullough her sophomore season and being able to practice with the Lady Eagles.
