  • Bowling Middle School Girls take...

    The last time it happened was 2003. Some of the names on that team included Kelsey Wiliams and Kendall Cochran. On Dec. 6, the Bowling Middle School girls basketball team again captured the Eighth Grade Single “A” title.

    This year’s squad won the tourney by defeating Gallatin County 48-34 in the championship game. It was the third time this season the Lady Rebels defeated the Lady Wildcats.

    Bowling Middle School opened up the event with a bye in the first round before defeating Williamstown 40-24 in the second round.

  • Coaches honor Owen County soccer...

    The National Soccer Coaches Association of America has named the 2008 winners of the Team Academic Awards and once again the Owen County Rebels have made the list.

    The list includes only those teams with a minimum grade-point average of 3.25 for the entire academic year. For Coach Jerry Doolin, his team’s GPA was 3.30. Only four other boys teams qualified for the award. They were Danville, Owensboro, St. Xavier and Trinity. It is the 11th year in a row the Rebels have made the list.

  • A tale of two games

    As fun as the Dec. 9 game was for the Owen County Rebels, Thursday night was not.

    The Rebels opened up the week by hosting Trimble County and sent the Raiders home with a 74-40 defeat.

    On Thursday, Owen County welcomed Carroll County to Owenton and the Panthers walked out with a 54-44 victory.

    The student body turned out Dec. 9 in hard hats and watched their team give a workman-like effort in picking up the win. The Rebels led 13-9 at the end of one quarter and opened up the lead to 32-23 at the half.

  • Neeley breaks single-season...

    The Bowling Middle School eighth-grade girls hosted Carroll County Thursday night. The Lady Rebels rolled to a 52-16 win over the Lady Panthers.

    During the second half of the game, Hannah Neeley broke the single-season scoring record by scoring her 266th point on the year.

    Neeley breaks the previous record of 265 set by Rianna Gayheart.

    The eighth grader finished the game with 16 points to give her a total of 269 for the year.

    Neeley is not finished setting the record as BMS hosted Walton-Verona in the final game of the season.

  • Owen falls to Western Hills, but...

    The Owen County Rebels lifted the lid on the 2008-2009 season Dec. 9 in Owenton against Western Hills.

    Given the outcome, they may have wished for a do-over.

    The Wolverines got the best of the Rebels in a 64-56 win.

    Western Hills led 14-12 late in the first quarter before going on an 11-0 run to stretch the lead to 25-12 two minutes into the second quarter.

    The Rebels managed to keep the score close by going on a 7-0 run of their own to cut the deficit to 25-19.

    Western Hills righted the ship and maintained the lead at intermission.

  • Alice Lloyd’s...

    She is not someone you would want to challenge in a game of horse. Kaylan Richardson can shoot the ball from the outside,  and Nov. 24,  she proved it to the University of Cincinnati-Clermont.

    Richardson, a senior shooting guard for Alice Lloyd College, almost single-handedly beat the Cougars that night by connecting on nine 3-pointers,  scoring a game-high 29 points.

    The Lady Eagles won the game 77-58.

    Trailing 31-29 entering the second half, Richardson proceeded to make seven of her nine 3s, bringing her team back for the win.

  • Owen’ County Hoop runs...

    It was not a typical Saturday after Thanksgiving for Danielle Hoop.

    Instead of staying home and eating leftovers or hitting the mall for all the best deals, the sophomore was in Charlotte, N.C., running.

    Hoop took part in the Foot Locker South Regional at the McAlpine Greenway Park in Charlotte.

    She was running against some of the best runners throughout the South. Competing against more than 300 runners, Hoop finished in the top 50.

    The race wrapped up another successful season for the sophomore.

  • Gayheart named NCKC Player of...

    Owen County Lady Rebel Rianna Gayheart has been named the NCKC Player of the Week. The freshman took home the honor after a week where she averaged 25 points in two games. Gayheart totaled 15  points, and five rebounds against Grant County in the season opener. She then dropped 35 points on Williamstown in leading Owen County to their first win of the season. She connected on five 3-pointers as well as pulling down eight rebounds against the Lady Demons. This is the first time Gayheart has won the award.

     

  • Lady Rebels go 2-1 in first week

    The roads between Owenton and Dry Ridge were busy last week.

    On Dec. 1, Owen County opened the season with a home game with Grant County.

    Friday night, the Lady Rebels made the trip Williamstown to play the Lady Demons.

    In both cases it would be the team that made the bus ride that would leave the gym satisfied.

    In the home opener, Grant County scored with less than four seconds remaining to pick up the 46-45 win.

    Owen County battled back from a 12-point deficit in the fourth quarter to force the Lady Braves into needing last-second heroics.

  • Football teams wrap up season

    The Owen County Parks & Recreation Competitive Football teams finished their season with their annual trip to the King of the Hill tournament in Owensboro. All the teams and players once again gained valuable experience on the trip. The U9 team came away with a third-place finish to complete their outstanding season at 20-1.
