  • Sutton gives highlight to...

    With all of the struggles on the field this season for the Grant County Braves, a bright spot on the football team has been senior Cody Sutton.

    Sutton is from Sacramento, Calif. He just moved to Grant County this year, because of his father’s career in the military.

    Sports have not been a major part of his school year, but this year as a senior, he wanted to go out for team, so he decided on Braves football.

  • Lady Braves overcome trials with...

    Teams always have times to overcome adversity in a season.

    The Cincinnati Reds did it with walk-off wins throughout the year, sending them to the playoffs.

    The same can be said with the 2010 Grant County Lady Braves soccer team.

  • Lady Demons want to dodge...

    Williamstown is looking to make some history as the Lady Demons face Bullitt Central in the first round of the Region 8 Tournament.

    To make it to regionals, Williamstown defeated Gallatin County in the semi-final match at the 23rd District Tournament, Oct. 13.

    For coach Wes Staff he was ecstatic after the win over Gallatin County.

    “It was great to see them come back when the points were going the other way,” he said about his player’s efforts. “It was great to see them fight back and not get discouraged.”

  • GCYS raffling off prizes at games

    The Grant County Youth Soccer League is having a raffle at their games for the duration of the season.

    The raffle, which is sponsored by Piles Chevrolet and the Chevrolet Youth Soccer Program will sell tickets for $2 for one ticket and $5 for 3 tickets.

    There are two prizes in the raffle, including a grand prize being a brand new Chevrolet Malibu or Equinox.

    This grand prize will be drawn from the participating youth soccer leagues in nine states.

  • Braves work to improve...

    It seems like a long time since the Braves were 2-1 on the season. Actually, it has been four weeks, and since then Grant County has fallen to South Oldham 36-3  on Oct. 8.

    Coach Mike Davis said the team needs to get back to the fundamentals of football.

    “We are still a young football team,” he said. “We were not playing responsibile football.”

    The loss dropped the Braves to 2-5 on the season and for Grant County to get to a .500 record, it will have to start with a win over Oldham County on Oct. 15.

  • Lady Braves golf, Rich end their...

    At the beginning of the season, every golfer in the state of Kentucky dreams of going to state.

    The Grant County girls’ golf program  and  Williamstown senior Ali Rich all made it to the state tournament, Oct. 4-6 at the Bowling Green Country Club.

    “It was fun,” senior Kodi Hall said. “It was our first time going as a team to state. Sarah Kellam went last year by herself, so it was a nice experience for us.”

  • Lady Demons send seniors out on...

    As a high school student-athlete coming in as a freshman, you feel as though these four years will be slow, until you find yourself walking out on your home court one last time as a senior.

    For the Lady Demons, four seniors got to go out in front of their home crowd to celebrate the last four years playing for Williamstown.

    Chelsea West, Tori Wilhoit, Haley Rothwell, and Makayla True got to celebrate a win on Senior Night Oct. 5, defeating Calvary Christian in two sets, 25-19, 25-21 to move their record to 12-14 on the season.

  • A sad end to a magical season

    It is not what the team wanted, but for 11 Grant County Braves soccer players, the season is over, as they lost to Pendleton County 1-0 in the first round of the 23rd District Tournament.

    The team did set a new school record with 13 wins in the season.

    However, it was a bigger goal in mind for these seniors and for coach Clay Mattingly.

    “It was disappointing that Pendleton County scored the only goal the way they did,” he said about the penalty kick that was early on in the first half of the game.

  • Braves set school record for wins

    The Grant County Braves boys’ soccer team broke the school record for wins (13) after defeating Owen County 3-0 Oct. 7.

    Eleven seniors celebrated the culmination of four years in the Braves soccer program. You wouldn’t be able to tell, sensing there is more to the season than breaking the school record.

    Coach Clay Mattingly even let them play as a team out on the field to start the game and in the second half.

  • Friendship on the links

    Golf can be a sport for anyone and for two Grant County High School golfers it has caused a lifelong friendship.

    Senior Zach Wright and Tim Livingood have been friends since they were in elementary school.

    When Wright was little, his parents and grandparents played golf, which garnered his interest in the game. Wright began playing golf in school when he was in the sixth grade, catching the “golf bug.”

    For Livingood, it was also family that got him into the game.
