  • Owen outlasts Grant

    The rivalry may not be what it once was, but don’t tell that to members of the Owen County or Grant County boys’ basketball teams. The two schools — that for years played heated contests in equally hot and cramped gymnasiums — played another close game Saturday in Dry Ridge.
    The gyms may now be bigger but the game Saturday was equally good. On Saturday night, Owen County held off Grant County for a 73-67 win.
    It was the second win this season over Grant County.

  • A Milestone Victory

    His first win came Dec. 2, 2005. That night, Owen County won at Williamstown, 48-40.
    Friday night, Owen County High School Head Girls Basketball Coach Bob Osborne picked up win number 100 as Owen County defeated Oldham County, 81-70, in Owenton.
    “It’s a nice milestone to accomplish in six years,” Osborne said.
    The Lady Rebels played their best game of the year Friday night as four players reached double figures.

  • Leading the way

  • Wildcats spoil the Rebels’ plan

    When Owen County played in Richmond following Christmas, they were hoping it would be a precursor of bigger things to come. The Rebels, however, saw their hopes of a return trip dashed Jan. 25 in the semifinals of the 8th Region All ‘A’ Classic.
    The team that ended their hopes was their old nemesis in this tournament, Gallatin County. The Wildcats knocked the Rebels out in the first round last year and defeated them in the finals in 2007.

  • Toole wins player of the week...

    A Lady Rebel has been named NCKC Player of the Week.
    Senior Samantha Toole was honored for her play against Anderson County and Shelby County two weeks ago. In the two Lady Rebel victories, Toole averaged 14 points and six rebounds.
    Basketball is not the only sport where the senior excels. Toole is also an outstanding goalie on the soccer team in the fall, and she will be at first base when the softball season opens this spring.

  • Lady Rebels take two out of three

    A week that began with a loss in an Eighth Region showdown ended with a 31st District win.
    The Lady Rebels opened up last week with a contest against the team some thought was the best in the Eighth Region — the South Oldham Lady Dragons.
    “I think they are the best team,” Owen County High School Head Girls Basketball Coach Bob Osborne said.
    The Lady Dragons came to Owenton Jan. 24 and went back to Crestwood with a 67-52 win.
    South Oldham jumped out to a 6-1 lead and had extended that lead to 20-13 by the end of the first quarter.
