decided by the Board
that the new gym floor
be named in Albin’s honor, designating the new
floor “Coach A Court.”
Albin began his teaching career at Central
Park Elementary in
1969 before moving to
OCHS where he taught
Physical Education for
some 32 years before
his retirement. While
at OCHS, Albin coached
baseball, girls’ basketball, boys’ basketball,
football, and tennis. In the announcement
of the honor, it was cited that Albin had suffered some adversity in
his life—he was severely injured in an automobile accident in the
mid-1970s that required
years of painful physical rehabilitation—but
has always maintained
a very positive attitude
and outlook. His positive outgoing personality
was cited as having had
a profound impact on
the thousands of former
students and athletes he

Friday’s court-naming
ceremony were Coach
Albin’s wife Pat, children Stephanie, Ryan,

Scott Lewis, Board
members Karen Boling, Beth Lunsford, and
Dwight Raymond, assistant superintendent
Seth Southard, OCHS
principals Greg Decker, Angela Alexander,
and Robby Asberry, and
OCHS athletic director
Charles Patton all were
on the floor to greet Albin with a framed representation of the new
gym floor.
After echoing the sentiment of Albin’s influence on generations
of local youth, Decker
asked Albin if he’d like
to say anything. The

Monday night at home
Ohio County battled a
very talented Warren
Central team before
falling 71-63. Monday’s
win upped the Fourth
Region team’s record to
Lady Dragon (or was
it Dragon Lady?) Tia
Barnett had the hot
hand early, tossing in
14 first-quarter points
as WCHS jumped out to
a 26-14 lead. But Ohio
County rallied in the
second period behind
Allison Druin’s eight
points to cut the deficit down to 37-32 before
Warren Central scored
the final four points to
lead 41-32 at halftime.
Tate Parker’s eight
points led Ohio County even closer in the
third period, as the local girls got to within
three points, at 50-47,
and trailed 53-49 with
a quarter to go. A pair
of Parker free throws
early in the fourth quarter cut the margin to
54-51 before a 6-0 Lady
Dragon spurt upped the
margin to 60-51. After
that, the Lady Eagles
got no closer than seven
points, and even trailed
by 15 before a late spurt
cut the final margin to
Barnett fired in 27
points to lead the winners, and all scorers,
while Zakoria Hill added 17, and Karajah
Leach 11 more for the
winners. Druin finished
with 25 while Parker
totaled 18 and Caroline
Nance 10 for Ohio County. Druin and Nance
had “double-doubles” for
the Lady Eagles as each
also grabbed 10-plus rebounds.

10-8. Breckinridge County, the tournament’s

halftime. Tiger guards
Kobe Poole and Joey
Howell combined for
14 points in the third
quarter as Breckinridge

in that quarter, and
added six more in the
final period as OCMS
outscored their foes 1911. But it was much too
little and too late.
