  • 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.

  • Homecoming

    It was a night when everyone got all dressed up. Even Rebels Coach Adam Fowler got into the Homecoming spirit as he donned a dress shirt and tie to pace the sidelines. Based on the result, one may wonder if he will keep up the look.

    Owen County defeated Atherton last Friday night 20-6 to pick up its second win of the season and set up an important game for next Friday night in Carrollton.

    Jared Johnson rushed for two scores and Jordan Cox scored on a quarterback sneak to propel the Rebels to the win.

  • BMS achieves perfect season

    Perfection is hard to come by. Many strive for it but very few ever attain it. Last Tuesday night at Patterson Field, the Bowling Middle School football finished off the perfect season. The Rebels defeated Trimble County 52-0 to finish the year with a perfect 8-0 record and claimed the Conference Championship.

  • A 26.2-mile epic

    It is said that life is a marathon and not a sprint. For Amy Klein this statement could not be more true.

    The Owen County resident ran her first marathon in 2005. On Sept. 20 at the Wright Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio, Klein won her first marathon.

    According to Klein, about 1,000 women ran in the Air Force Marathon that featured 2,500 total runners. Klein captured the women’s 26.2-mile race in a time of 3:06.27.

  • A special night

    Every Friday night in the fall is special.

    There is a chill in the air that is full of the aroma of hotdogs and popcorn. The lights at the stadium are turned on. The student body is pumped up. The band plays the fight song as the cheerleaders cheer. The team takes the field.

    It is another Friday night full of high school football. While each game is exciting and anticipated, one night stands out above the rest, Homecoming.

  • Cross Country competes in two...

    The Owen County cross county team took the course twice last week. The team competed at Carroll County before taking part in the Franklin County Invitational at the Kentucky Horse Park on Saturday.

    Eighth-grader Julie Spaulding finished fifth at General Butler State Resort Park in Carrollton. Amber Gover ran well for the Lady Rebels finishing 11th while Haley DeCandia captured 14th place. Megan Barnes finished 19th while Kelsey Johnson and Maggie Barnes finished 23rd and 24th respectively.

    The boys’ race saw Josh Alford finish 28th.

  • Rebels fall to Braves

    It started with a bang.

    Fans had not yet settled into their seats when Grant County kicked off to Owen County to begin Friday night’s game in Dry Ridge. Matt Harris took the kickoff and raced 80 yards to the end zone for a Rebels touchdown. According to Harris, “There was just a seam right up the middle and we busted it.” The extra point was blocked but after 15 seconds of action, Owen County had a 6-0 lead.
