  • Baseball Rebels advance to region

    By reaching the 31st District championship game May 23, the Owen County High School baseball team assured a third-straight trip to the Eighth Region baseball tournament.
    They were also hoping for something a little more as well.
    The Rebels began the tournament May 19 in New Castle and needed two wins to reach the championship game.
    The defending district champs played like it on the first two nights as they knocked off Eminence 10-0 in the first round and Gallatin County High School 5-0 in the semifinals.

  • Softball season ends in semis

    In their first two meetings this season Gallatin County outscored Owen County by a combined 15-2 score. Things would be much closer when the two squared off last week in the semifinals of the 31st District tournament.
    It was the sixth time the schools had met in the tournament dating back to 2006.
    Owen County won the first three meetings rather handily. Gallatin County then turned the tables defeating the Lady Rebels in the 2012 championship game and also in the 2013 semifinals. Both were one-run contests.

The Rebels were able to avenge an earlier loss to the Blue Lightning with a 5-1 victory. The day would be the final home game for seniors Jarrod Ball, Bobby Duncan, Zach Hall and Logan Webster. With the win the team would finish 6-5 at Dunavent Field.
    The Rebels would hit the road May 13 for Frankfort.
