  • Gayheart will continue...

    As she enters her senior season at Owen County High School, Rianna Gayheart already knows where she will be playing basketball next fall.
    Gayheart has signed a national letter of intent to play college basketball at Northern Kentucky University in Highland Heights. The senior shared the moment with her family, coaches, teammates and fans on Thursday night during Maroon Madness at Owen County High School.

  • Maroon Madness: Boys ready to run

    The overall record may have indicated last year was a winning season but the Owen County Rebels may not agree.
    The team finished the season 15-9 but a first-round home loss in the 8th Region All ‘A’ Classic and a first-round loss in the 31st District tournament left a bad taste in some people’s mouth. The loss in the district tournament kept Owen County from reaching the 8th Region Tournament for the first time since 2007.

  • Maroon Madness: Girls strive for...

    Of the past four seasons the Owen County Lady Rebels have accumulated a very impressive collection.
    Nets.
    The Lady Rebels enter the 2011-2012 season in a familiar situation. They are the four-time defending 31st District champions.
    Over the past four seasons they have cut down the nets at all four district schools after claiming the title. They hope to do it again.
    Owen County High School Head Girls Basketball Coach Bob Osborne returns his top three scorers from last year’s team that finished the season 23-6.

  • Brian Blair’s 2011 Golden Gobble...

    As you sit down tomorrow for Thanksgiving you should at least have one thing to be thankful for. You could be the turkey.
    Several people have been “turkeys” this season in the world of sports.
    As I have done for the past three years now I have revealed some of the poor souls to you in my annual Golden Gobble Awards. Here are my, um, winners for this year.

  • Trenary runs to eighth-place...

    Owen County’s Hunter Trenary is proof hard work pays off.
    The freshman capped off a great cross-country season on Saturday by finishing eighth in the Class A State Cross Country Meet.
    Trenary accomplished this despite getting a late start on the season.
    “I got a late start this year training but I trained much harder than in years past,” Trenary said.

  • Owen alum named MSC freshman...

    The Mid-South Conference recently released its annual awards to honor  cross-country athletes who earned MSC honors when participating in this year’s season. The honors included an all-conference team, freshman runner of the year, and academic all Mid-South conference. 
    Former Owen County High School standout and University of the Cumberlands freshman Danielle Hoop was selected as the MSC freshman runner of the year. This is a great honor and only one freshman is selected out of the entire Mid-South Conference.

  • Third-place finish for Trenary

    His teammates and coaches knew Hunter Trenary could run. On Saturday in Lexington, the rest of Class A Region 5 also found out.
    Trenary finished third at the regional meet with a time of 16:45.5. He finished 10 seconds out of second place and 27 seconds ahead of fourth place.
    Cory Hudnall also ran well and finished in 16th place. Along with the help of Logan Bitler, Evan Lozier and Alex Dietz, the Rebels finished in sixth places as a team.
    The meet was held at Lexington Christian Academy.

  • Turn it up to 11

    To say it has been a long time would be an understatement. The last time Owen County won a playoff game was during the Carter Administration.
    That changed Friday night at Patterson Field when the Rebels dispatched the Newport Wildcats, 38-13.
    Owen County continued its magical season with another dominating performance over an opponent. The Rebels used a stingy defense and a bruising rushing attack to send Newport into the offseason. The offense rushed for 226 yards, while allowing the Wildcats just 55 yards on the ground.
