  • Rebels drop season opener on road

    The Owen County High School football team hopes Friday night’s loss at Western Hills High School will be a learning experience for a young team.
    For the second year in a row, the Rebels traveled to Frankfort to take on the Wolverines.
    After winning big last year, Owen County mistakes and a solid ground game by Western Hills led to a 33-6 defeat to begin the season.
    It is the second season in a row the Rebels have lost their first game of the season. Owen County began last year with a loss at Lloyd Memorial in Erlanger.

  • Rebel Ramblings: At Grant County...

    • Owen County defeated Grant County 44-14 last season in Dry Ridge. It was the third-straight win over the Braves.

    • The Braves finished 3-7 last year and failed to make the playoffs.

  • Rough start for Lady Rebels

    Coming off  its first-ever district championship, the Owen County High School girls soccer team has not gotten off to the start they were anticipating.
    The Lady Rebels began the season with a pair of home games last week. The first came Aug. 19 as they welcomed Villa Madonna High School to town.
    The Blue Lightning got off to a good start as they jumped out to a 4-0 lead at halftime. They would add another in the second half and leave with the 5-0 victory. For Owen County, the loss came 364 days after Villa Madonna defeated them 6-0 in 2012.

  • Tough week for boys soccer

    The Owen County High School boys soccer team would probably prefer to forget last week and their time in the Rotary Capital Classic. The Rebels played three games but dropped all three.
    The first came Aug. 20 when they took on Frankfort Independent High School.
    Owen County would fall 6-2 to the Panthers.
    On Thursday night, the Rebels would travel back to Frankfort to take on Western Hills High School. The Wolverines would defeat Owen County 4-0.

  • Volleyball picks up road win

    It may have only been the second match of the season, but the Owen County volleyball team is hoping to build on their come-from-behind win in Dry Ridge.
    After winning the first set 25-15 against Grant County on Thursday night, the Lady Rebels dropped the next two 31-29 and 25-15.
    Staring an 0-2 start in the face, Owen County bounced back and won the fourth set 25-15 and then held on in the fifth set 16-14 to come home with a hard-fought victory.

    As they enter 2013, Trenary and the team are hoping for more.

  • Rebels to depend on youth

    If the coaching staff wanted to put a sign on the door leading into the Owen County High School football locker room, it might read “no experience necessary.”
    As the Rebels get ready to kickoff the season on Friday night at Western Hills, they will be doing it with an almost completely revamped lineup.
    Owen County High School Head Football Coach Adam Fowler will have to figure out how to replace almost all of his starters on both offense and defense from a team that has gone 17-6 over the past two seasons.
