  • Three Rebels named to all-region...

    A trio of Owen County basketball players has been named to their respective All 8th Region Teams.

    Rianna Gayheart was named to the girls’ team. The sophomore averaged 12.5 points and 3.8 rebounds during the regular season. She shot 72 percent from the free-throw line and led the team in three-pointers with 36. This is the second-straight year Gayheart has been given this honor.

  • Eastern signs Pruitt

    A member of the Owen County football team will be continuing his career next year when he heads to college.

    Senior Tyler Pruitt signed last week to play football at Eastern Kentucky University.

    Pruitt was an integral part of the Owen County football program over the last four years. The senior played both offense and defense for the Rebels and was known for always being where the ball was.

    Owen County High School Head Coach Adam Fowler, who coached Pruitt the last two years, had high praise for his player.

  • Snowy week ends with win for...

    The Owen County Lady Rebels were not in class much last week due to inclement weather. On Friday night, however, they did give Trimble County a lesson on domination.

    The Lady Rebels won the opening tip and never looked back against the Lady Raiders. Hannah Neeley hit a 3-pointer as the buzzer sounded on the first quarter to give Owen County a 16-2 lead. The Lady Rebels were not finished as they went on to win the game 51-33.

  • Rebels drop pair of road games

    It had been a while since the Owen County Rebels had been on the basketball court against an opponent. The Rebels last game prior to last week was Feb. 2 at Williamstown.

    On Thursday night, road crews got enough of the snow removed to enable the Rebels to make their way to Walton-Verona. The Bearcats came into the game still riding high after winning the 8th Region All “A” Classic and advancing to the quarterfinals in Richmond.

  • Runnin’ Rebels chase...

    The Owen County Rebels were scheduled to make two trips to Grant County last week. The team was supposed to play both Williamstown and Grant County. Old Man Winter had other plans.

    Before the flakes began flying, the Rebels were able to get to Williamstown Feb. 2. They were glad they did, for they defeated the Demons, 62-46.

  • Owen County’s John...

    Most people think of playing pool as something they do in their spare time just for fun. For one Owen County resident, it has turned into something much more.

    John Brumback takes pool very seriously and it is paying off.

    Brumback went to the 12th Annual Derby City Classic at the Horseshoe Casino as the defending Bank 9-Ball Champion as well as the All-Around Champion.

  • Saints marching back with a...

    The New Orleans Saints marched into Miami as the underdog in Super Bowl XLIV. They marched out taking football’s biggest prize with them.

    I must admit, I was rooting for the Colts, but after watching the game on Sunday night how can you not root for the Saints?

    For the last few years, the most memorable images coming out of New Orleans have been ones of devastation and despair. People wondered how long and even if the city would be able to recover.

  • Up and down week for Lady Rebs

    The past week for the Owen County Lady Rebels was one of contrasts.

    The week began with a trip to South Oldham to play one of the better teams in the 8th region. The week ended with a home game against Williamstown, a team that is not as highly regarded.

    While the Lady Rebels dropped a 49-45 decision to the Lady Dragons, they played better in defeat than they did in a 34-28 win over the Lady Demons.

  • Rebels slam Warriors

    Several questions faced the Rebels as they entered play last week against Eminence.

    Would Owen County be able to get healthy after an eight-day layoff? How would the Rebels respond to an opening round loss to Gallatin County in the All “A” Classic?

    The answer to the first question can be answered with a resounding no.

    While senior Blake Lewis was able to get back on the floor against the Warriors Jan. 26, another senior was not quite as fortunate.

  • Rebels find themselves at...

    Saturday night, Jan. 24, 2009, is a date that most people in Owen County will not soon forget.

    On that night in Carrollton, Henry County defeated Owen County on a half court shot at the buzzer to propel themselves to Richmond and the All “A” Classic State Tournament.

    The picture of the team holding their runner-up trophy was one where the red eyes were not caused by the flash of the camera.
