  • GCHS runners race under the...

    Looking for a change of pace, the Grant County High School cross country teams decided to sleep in.

    The Braves were able to because instead of waking to race early in the morning, they were going to run at night under the bright lights at the Adidas Saturday Night Lights IV in Centerville, Ohio on Sept. 26.

    “It was an experience that the runners will remember,” coach Marlon Kinsey. “They have worked hard and they deserved to have a little fun, but the main goal was to perform at our best. Running at night is a unique experience.”

  • Lady Braves take down Newport in...

    The Grant County High school girls’ soccer team was eager to get back in the win column.

    The Lady Braves had lost or tied in their previous three games before coming away with a 4-0 win over Newport on Sept. 24.

    “It was wet and sloppy, but it was still good to get a win,” coach Melinda White said. “It was nice to put a W back on the board.”

  • Braves defeated by Anderson

    The rain fell all week and soaked into the Grant County High School football field.

    When the Braves faced Anderson County on Sept. 25, the field had turned into a mud pit.

    The teams slid all over the field and the Braves fell 41-0 in their first district game.

    “Anderson County is a good football team and I thought early on, we played with a deer in the headlights look,” coach Mike Davis said. “We came out, not flat, but like we didn’t believe. We fell behind and then started to play Grant County football.”

  • Lady Demons win on senior night

    The Williamstown volleyball team started senior night with speeches and gifts from the younger players. They ended the night with a dominant win over a district opponent.

    The Lady Demons defeated Owen County in two sets (25-16, 25-15) on Sept. 23.

    “It was a real fun night because we played together,” senior Chelsea Fitterer said. “We all want to win and that helps us work together.”

    The Lady Demons celebrated the careers of Fitterer, Taylor Eldridge and Sara Moreland.

  • Wright takes first at regional

    The wind whipped across Eagle Creek Country Club’s golf course, but Zach Wright was able to manage his game.

    Wright, junior at Grant County High School, bounced back from a slow start to shoot a 71 at Eagle Creek to earn first place at the regional tournament on Sept. 27. With first place, Wright will advance to the state tournament at the Bowling Green Country Club on Oct. 6. Wright also played in the state tournament the past two seasons.

  • Lady Braves rebound for win...

    The first time that the Grant County High School volleyball team faced Walton-Verona, they lost in two sets on Sept. 1.

    With a month of experience, they were able to rebound when the team’s faced each other again.

    Although they lost the first set, the Lady Braves fought back to defeat the Lady Bearcats in three sets on Sept. 22, winning 17-25, 25-20 and 25-13.

  • The inexact science of the putt

    Putting is only one facet of the sometimes frustrating, sometimes sublime game of golf. But the importance of making a putt showed when the Grant County girls’ golf team competed in their tournament on Sept. 12.

    The girls were able to take first place after each girl was able to par their last hole. They won the Grant County Classic by one stroke and had any of the girls not been able to finish the job on the green, they would have walked away without the first place finish.
