  • Wildcats win rematch

    When Owen County defeated Gallatin County by 28 points in December, fans of both teams wondered how it happened and what it meant.
    After the rematch in Owenton, those same questions are again being asked.
    The Wildcats came to town Jan. 10 and turned the tables on the Rebels and came away with a 64-53 victory.
    The two teams played a nearly even first half but Gallatin County held a 21-20 lead at halftime.
    Things would however change dramatically in the third quarter in favor of the team in blue.

  • Boys All ‘A’ Classic preview

    • Owen County enters the tournament as the defending Eighth Region champs. The Rebels are looking to become the first team to repeat as champs since Gallatin County won three straight from 2006 through 2008. The only other team to repeat is Carroll County who won in 1997 and 1998.
    • Of the seven teams currently in the Eighth Region, Eminence is the only one not to have won the title at least once. Henry County and Spencer County have also won championships but are no longer in the tournament due to enrollment size.

  • Semifinal exit for Lady Rebels

    The temperature outside last week was well above normal.
    Inside, the shooting percentage for the Lady Rebels was well below normal.
    The Owen County High School girls basketball team, which has made 43 percent of their shots from the field this season, had a bad night in a game they could not afford to lose.
    On Friday night in Eminence, the Lady Rebels shot just 18 percent from the field which lead to a 47-40 loss to Trimble County in the semifinals of the Eighth Region All ‘A’ Classic.

  • Lady Rebels hope to begin new streak

    When Henry County defeated Owen County on Dec. 18, 2009, it was the last time the Lady Rebels had lost a game to a 31st district opponent.
    Since that time, the team had won 27 consecutive games.
    That streak ended Thursday night.

  • Rebels streak into new year

    2013 began the same way 2012 ended for the Owen County High School Rebels – with a win.
