    Ecclesiastes 11:8-10 says;
    “For if a man should live many years,
    let him rejoice in them all,
    and let him remember the days
    of darkness, since there will be many,
    All that comes is futile.
    Rejoice, young man,
    while you are young,

  • Was this the best year ever for Owen County athletics?

    I have only been covering Owen County athletics for a few years now but as the year concluded last week I can’t remember a better one.
    Let us start last fall with the football and volleyball teams. On the gridiron the Rebels went 10-0 during the regular season. They won the district and a first round playoff game before eventually losing in the second round to the team they would go on to win the 2A state championship. The Rebels were not just winning games by narrow margins. They were punishing the opposition winning their 11 games by an average of 22 points.

  • Team Ward knocks off Wildcats for title

    Under 8
    Play-in Game, Saturday May 19
    Clovers - 1 vs. Little Rebels - 0
     In the first round of the U8 tournament, the Clovers walked away with the win to advance to the semi-finals. Scoring for the Clovers was Brionna Crowe. This was the first win of the season for the Clovers. Unfortunately, this was the final game for the Little Rebels who had an incredible season. Coach Larry Kenner is so proud of the Little Rebels. They all put forth great effort during the season and made his first season as a soccer coach memorable.
