  • Rebels earn fifth straight district title

    To say the Owen County Rebels have dominated the 31st District over the past five seasons would be an understatement.

    Just look at the numbers. In the last five seasons the Rebels are now 42-5 against teams from the 31st District, including a 25 game winning streak against district foes.

    Their dominance was on full display this week at the 31st District Tournament in Warsaw as they captured their fifth straight 31st District crown. Owen County claimed the title with a 66-54 win over Henry County on Saturday night in front of a packed crowd of Rebel supporters.

    It seems like a distant memory now but two years ago the Lady Rebels won just a single game. On Friday night in Warsaw, the team returned to the summit of the 31st District with a 46-43 win over Gallatin County.

    “We’re back,” said a smiling Molly Gamble, holding her piece of the net she had just cut down. “We’ve had a rough couple of years so this means a lot.”

  • HEARTBREAK IN FRANKFORT

    The Owen County Rebels headed to Frankfort on Thursday with high expectations. Students and faculty lined the road wishing the team luck as they headed out of town. The return trip on Saturday night was not as jubilant.

    Murray’s James Boone took only one 3-point shot on Saturday night during the semifinals of the Kentucky All “A” Classic. It was a big one. As the shot fell through the net the Tigers rushed onto the floor in celebration and the Rebels were left wondering what had just happened.

  • Lady Rebels win one, lose one in games last week

    The Owen County Lady Rebels played a pair of games last week. In both cases, the outcomes of each were determined by the second half.

    The team hosted Lexington Christian on Monday night. The first half was closely contested with Owen County holding a 29-25 lead over the Lady Eagles at halftime. The second half was a much different story as the Lady Rebels grabbed the momentum and ran with it. They outscored Lexington Christian 38-32 and won 67-47.

  • Boys soccer falls to Carroll Co. in District Championship

    The Owen County boys entered the 31st District Tournament last week looking to do something they had not done since 2012.
