Monday becomes unlucky day for Rebels

-A A +A

Seasons come to an end for several Owen Co. teams

Monday is not a popular day of the week.

For three Owen County High School athletic teams, Monday of last week was a day they happily put behind them.

The day began with both soccer teams and the volleyball team opening up play in their respective district tournaments.

At day’s end, all of their seasons were over.

Not only would the boys’ soccer team like to forget last Monday, they also do not want to see Western Hills in the 25th District Tournament.

For the third consecutive year, Western Hills ended Owen County’s season in the first round of the district tournament. Western Hills defeated the Rebels 5-1. Owen County finished the season with a record of 8-11.

The Lady Rebels soccer team opened play in the 25th District Tournament against Western Hills.

Owen County was looking to carry over their momentum after they won at Western Hills two weeks earlier.

It was not to be as the Lady Rebels dropped a 3-0 decision to end their season.

Owen County finished the year with a record of 5-11-3.

After a slow start, the Lady Rebels won or tied seven of their last 11 games.

The Lady Rebels volleyball team took on Scott County in the opening round of the 30th District Tournament at Grant County High School.

For the second year in a row, Scott County ended Owen County’s season as they defeated the Lady Rebels in two games.

While Owen County finished its second season still searching for its first varsity win, the team improved greatly from a season ago.

Both the freshman and junior varsity teams played well and managed to record victories. They hope their winning ways will carry over into varsity play in the seasons to come.
