  • Gayheart named player of the week

    Another Lady Rebel has been named NCKC Player of the Week.
    Junior Rianna Gayheart was given the honor for her efforts during the week of Jan. 23-29.
    In games versus South Oldham, Williamstown and Carroll County, Gayheart scored a total of 45 points, dished out 12 assists and had 12 steals.
    Owen County won two of the three games as they defeated Williamstown and Carroll 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.

  • Despite delays, tournament...

    The tournament that will not end will finally crown a champion tonight.
    The Eighth Region All “A” Classic was to have been decided Saturday. Mother Nature had other ideas, however, as the area saw snow that accumulated enough to force the postponement of both the semifinals and the finals.
    The semifinals were decided Tuesday when Owen County took on Gallatin County and Eminence squared off against Trimble County.
    The winners will play tonight at 7 p.m. with the winner advancing to the All “A” State Tournament next week in Richmond.

  • Lucky No. 13

    Saturday afternoons are usually a time for players to recover following a Friday night game.
    That was not the case this past weekend when Owen County traveled to Lawrenceburg for a game with Anderson County.
    The 1:30 p.m. tip-off featured a pair of eighth region foes who are hoping to be playing well into March.
    The Lady Bearcats came into the contest ranked second in the region with 13 wins.
    The Lady Rebels were looking for their 13th victory.

  • Rebels end drought during...

    Before going on a long car trip, it is advisable to make sure the vehicle carrying your family is tuned up.
    The Owen County High School Runnin’ Rebels are hoping this week of tune-ups will make for a pleasant drive down to Richmond.
    The Rebels took on Anderson County at home Friday night.
    The two teams have met three times in the last two years with the Bearcats coming out on top each time. Each game was similar. All three were close at the half with Anderson County pulling away over the final half.
