    On the flip side, the team had won eight of 14 matches played away from home. The team would get back on track as they hosted three matches at the friendly confines of Floyd Gritton Gymnasium.

  • Rebel golfers take NCKC titles:...

    When the NCKC Tournament teed up on Sept. 24 at Sugar Bay Golf Course,  Owen County High School Head Girls Golf Coach David Wainscott had a number in mind. He thought if his team could shoot a team score of 340, they had a great shot at winning.
    The Lady Rebels were 13 shots better than their coach’s number and it was a good thing.
    The Owen County team fired a score of 327 to defeat the Henry County High School team which shot 335 to win its third-straight NCKC title.
    It was their fifth title in the last six years.
