  • 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.
