  • Season ends for Runnin'...

    Another season is in the books for the Owen County Rebels.
    The 2010-2011 campaign concluded last Wednesday night in the semifinals of the 31st District Tournament at Henry County. Owen County fell to Gallatin County by the score of 62-53 to finish the season.
    With the loss, the Rebels finish the year 15-9. The defeat means Owen County will not take part in the Eighth Region Tournament for the first time since 2007.

  • Osborne named Coach of the Year...

    The Eighth Region announced its year-end awards last week and the Lady Rebels were well represented.
    Junior Rianna Gayheart was named Eighth Region Player of the Year.
    She beat out Carroll County’s Hannah Devine to receive the honor.
    For the year, Gayheart is averaging 16.3 points and 3.6 rebounds.
    It is the first time a Lady Rebel has been given the honor since 2004 when Katie Smith won.
    Owen County Girls Basketball Head Coach Bob Osborne was named Eighth Region Coach of the Year.

  • It all comes down to this for...

    The Owen County Rebels have been to the Eighth Region semifinals the last two years. If they want to get back, they have to win tonight.
    The season will end tonight for the Owen County Rebels or the Gallatin County Wildcats. The two teams will square off in the opening round of the 31st District Tournament at Henry County. The game is scheduled to begin at 7:30 following the first game between Henry County and Carroll County.

  • Osborne and Williams named to...

    Two Owen County Rebels have been named to the All Eighth Region basketball team.
    Juniors Sawyer Williams and Stone Osborne both have been honored for their efforts on the hardwood. For Williams, this is the second straight year to be named to the team, and it is Osborne’s first.
    Owen County High School Boys Basketball Head Coach Devin Duvall has high praise and expectations for Williams.

  • OCHS basketball players named...

    Three members of both the boys and girls’ basketball teams have been named to the NCKC All-Conference Team.
    For the Lady Rebels, Rianna Gayheart, Hannah Neeley and Samantha Toole were each named to the team. Gayheart, a junior, is averaging 16 points and three rebounds a game. Neeley, a sophomore, is averaging 12 points and three rebounds a contest. Toole, a senior, is contributing with seven points and six boards a game.

  • Hannah Neeley named Player of...

    Another week means another Lady Rebel has been named NCKC Player of the week.
    Hannah Neeley received the honor last week for her effort in the Lady Rebels’ two wins over Collins and Oldham County. In the two victories, Neeley poured in 31 points, grabbed 11 rebounds and dished out seven assists.
    It was the third straight week a member of the Owen County Lady Rebels was named Player of the Week. The previous two winners were Samantha Toole and Rianna Gayheart.

  • Lady Rebels ready for postseason

    The 2010-2011 regular season will be one to remember for the Lady Rebels.
    The team won 20 games for the first time since 2003-2004. Three separate players were named NCKC Player of the Week. Rianna Gayheart was named Eighth Region Player of the Year, and Head Coach Bob Osborne was named Eighth Region Coach of the Year.
    This team, however, does not want to only be known for what they accomplished in the regular season. They want to have people remember them for what they do in the postseason.

  • Ladies looking ahead

    It seems to all be coming together.
    The Owen County Lady Rebels kept right on rolling last week as they defeated two more opponents. In fact, they made it look easy.
    The Lady Rebels started last week against Walton-Verona. The Lady Bearcats came into Owenton fresh off an appearance in the All “A” State Tournament where they lost in the first round, 55-54, to Danville.

  • Rebels hope to get on roll

    A week that began well for the Owen County Rebels quickly went “South.”
    The Rebels opened up last week by traveling to North Oldham. After falling behind early to the Mustangs, the team rallied to pick up the 57-51 victory. Owen County trailed 16-7 after the first quarter but turned things around in the second to cut the deficit to 23-21 at halftime.

  • A legend is lost

    Who knew that the final lap would be his last lap?
    As Michael Waltrip crossed the finish line of the Daytona 500 Feb. 21, 2001, his brother Darrell in the broadcasting booth became both emotional and concerned all at the same time.
    The emotion came from watching his little brother claim the checkered flag. The concern was for his racing brother who just seconds earlier had slammed into the wall on Turn 4.
