  • Lady Braves earn win over...

    Building a lead one inning at a time, Grant County’s softball team earned a win in their first district game.

    The Lady Braves defeated county rival Williamstown 9-0 on April 7.

    “The kids knew it was a district game and it was one of those games that they took by the teeth and did their job,” GCHS coach Ott Reed said.

  • Demons start season with...

    A year removed from a five-win season, the Williamstown baseball team is starting off on the right foot and a big part of it is believing in themselves.

    The boys faced a hard test in their first game, falling behind 5-0 after the first inning to Gallatin County on March 23.

    Senior Joel Price was on the mound for the Demons, shaking off his start by following with four innings of shutout baseball as Williamstown rallied for a 7-6 victory.

  • Passion drove GCHS duo

    Basketball has been a lifelong passion for the duo that led the Grant County boys’ basketball team this season.

    Mike Davis and Isaiah Wartman only played together for the final two years of their high school careers, but both brought the same intensity every time they walked on to the hardwood.

    Where: Grant County High School and Carroll County High School

  • Lady Braves rely on pitching

    While the Grant County softball team waits for their bats to warm up, they are depending on their pitching staff to lead them.

    The Lady Braves are relying on junior Katelyn Roy to lead the staff as the ace, but they have also been able to see the strengths of sophomore Morgan McClure and eighth grader Hannah Thacker.

  • Runners raise money for American...

    Five Grant County runners took part in the 5K at the Mini Heart Marathon in Cincinnati and raised $300 for the American Heart Association.

    This has become a yearly event for Michael Schultz, second from left, and his friends.

    It all started several years ago when Michael’s grandmother passed away from a heart attack. He started to run and raise money in her honor. This year had a little more meaning to it as his grandfather from the other side of the family passed away recently because of a heart attack. Schultz ran in his honor also.

  • Lady Braves downed by Western...

    After a season opening win over Notre Dame, the Grant County softball team faced their first test of their season.

    The Lady Braves took on Western Hills and learned that, although they are young, they will have to get better at the plate.

    Grant County fell to Western Hills 5-1 on March 26, as they struck out 17 times.

  • Demons keep winning streak alive

    After five games, the Williamstown baseball team matched last season’s win total of five.

    After their sixth game, they were able to surpass it.

    The Demons opened the season with a come-from-behind-win against Gallatin County before defeating Trimble County. Williamstown was able to continue their winning ways with a 7-3 win over Owen County on April 1, giving the Demons three region wins in as many games.

  • WHS seniors became brothers

    For the past five years, Storm Mason and Eric White have been able to see each other grow from boys into young men, seeing growth on the court and in the hallways.

    “Storm’s family has become a second set of parents to me and Storm is like a brother,” White said. “We’ve been through some ups and downs. I couldn’t pick any one better to have gone through it with. When I moved here, we started building a friendship and we played ball all through the years, sticking it out.”
