  • Heartbreak for Rebels as Owen...

    his one hurt.

    The Owen County Rebels went into Friday night’s game looking for their third win of the season. They seemed poised to get it, but it was not to be, as the Rebels fell to Christian Academy-Louisville 14-13.

    The game could not have started any better for Owen County. After holding the Centurions to a three and out on their first possession, the Rebels began their first drive on the 40-yard line.

  • Born to run

    If you ask members of the Owen County Girls Cross Country team why they run, many of them have the same answer. They love running.

    Coach Jeff Sutton loves when they run as well, and he also loves the fact that they are going to be around for a while.

    The Owen County varsity team is made up of one high school runner and a solid group of middle school runners.

    This has Sutton thinking some fairly lofty thoughts for the future of the program. The coach, however, is not looking so far ahead that he doesn’t realize what he has right now.

  • BMS squad falls; coach retires

    All good things must come to end.

    For the Bowling Middle School football game, that old adage became true Oct. 22 in more ways than one.

    The Rebels took part in the first Middle School State Football Championship by hosting Grant County at Patterson Field in what would be the final game for longtime BMS Football Coach Jeff Jump.

    Bowling Middle School finished the regular season with a perfect 8-0 record that included a win over the Braves earlier in the season.

    The Rebels took the opening kickoff and were forced to punt.

  • BMS girls team opens season

    Oct. 21 was opening night for the Bowling Middle School Lady Rebels. Both the sixth- and seventh-grade team and the eighth-grade team were in action against Gallatin County.

    In the first game, the sixth- and seventh-graders lost to the Lady Wildcats.

    The team has only three players returning from last year’s squad. Kennedi Dermon led the Lady Rebels with 7 points and five rebounds. Shelby Gambrell had 5 points while Andi Buford tossed in 3. Mackenzie Fitzgerald and Allison Dempsey had 1 point each.

  • Greyhounds speed past Rebels, 33...

    Greyhounds are fast.

    The Owen County Rebels found out just how fast Friday as they dropped a 33-6 decision on the road at Paris.

    The Greyhounds rushed for four touchdowns and returned a fumble for a touchdown in the win.

    Owen County entered the game looking to close out the road portion of its schedule the way they began it – with a win.

    It was not to be.

  • Politics and sports make a lot...

    In case you just arrived from Mars, we are in the middle of another presidential election. In fact, two weeks from today the election will be over. Notice I did not say decided, but the ballots will be cast.

    With the campaign winding down, I’ve been thinking how politics reminds me of sports. Anyone who knows me would say that everything reminds me of sports but I digress. Follow me here.

  • Monday becomes unlucky day for...

    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.

  • On the right track

    It is said there is no place like home.

    For Danielle Hoop and the rest of the Lady Rebel Cross Country team, that old saying seems to be true.

    The Lady Rebels ran in their only home race of the season Oct. 14.

    Hoop took first-place honors in the varsity race. The sophomore outran two runners from Henry County to claim the victory.

    Julie Spaulding captured fourth place. Amber Grover and Haley DeCandia ran to 11th and 12th place finishes while Morgan Walker finished in 14th place. Megan Barnes and Kelsey Johnson rounded out the top 20.

  • A missed opportunity

    Opportunity knocked on Friday night for the Owen County Rebels. But the Rebels did not answer the door.

    The Rebels took the field on Friday in Carrollton looking to continue the momentum gained from the win over Atherton. Instead, Owen County fell behind 14-0 in the first quarter and was not able to recover. Carroll County picked up the district win, 21-7.

    “They know they let the game slip away,” said a disappointed Coach Fowler after the game. “We have to take advantage of opportunities when we get them.”

  • Soccer seniors bid farewell

    It was recognition and even a few tears. The Owen County Lady Rebels’ soccer team said “so long” to eight seniors last Monday night at Patterson Field.

    For eight seniors it was their last chance to play on their home field and be recognized by the fans. Before the game, each girl was presented with a gift from Coach Haines and was honored by those in attendance. Following the festivities, Owen County took on Henry County.
