    Marlin Gregg is faced with a possible dilemma that is out of his control as his team prepares for its trip to Alabama.

    Should this week's games at Highlands and Owen County be postponed due to weather, it would be approximately six days since Gregg and his Grant County softball team saw the field against an opponent.

  • Grant County baseball team wants...

    Grant County High School baseball coach Van Duncan knew what he was doing when he made the schedule, which featured games against Harrison County and Gallatin County, in addition to seven consecutive away games to open the season.

    Two games into the season, the experiment has come with mixed results for the Braves, who lost 13-4 to Harrison County and defeated Gallatin County 4-3 last week.

    Two games into the season, Williamstown High School softball coach Mark Wilhoit has seen several surprises, both good and bad.

    In a 16-2 season opening win over St. Henry on March 26, it was the Lady Demons' hitting that proved to be the surprise, as Williamstown belted 14 total hits.

    "We hit much better than I thought we would," Wilhoit said.

  • Williamstown, Grant County...

    When the Williamstown High School softball team heads to Florida later this week, coach Mark Wilhoit will remind his team that while it is spring break, they have four games on the schedule.

    After playing in a tournament in Tennessee last year, Wilhoit made the decision to travel to Florida this year and his team will square off against Union County (KY), Henderson County (KY), Apollo (KY) and Maryville (TN).

    All four teams will provide tough competition for the Lady Demons, according to Wilhoit.
