  • Soccer teams finish regular...

    The regular season is over for the Owen County High School soccer teams.
    With two games at home, the boys team wrapped up its regular season.
    On Oct. 8, the team hosted Walton-Verona High School.
    The two teams met earlier in the year in the Eighth Region All ‘A’ Classic championship game. The Bearcats won that game 7-0.
    The result last week was not all that different as Walton-Verona would prevail 6-0. On Oct. 10,  the Rebels welcomed Villa Madonna to Patterson Field where the two teams would play to a 0-0 tie.

  • Homecoming heroes

    It was a night for celebrating at Patterson Field on Friday.
    Before the game, Krissy Swigert was named 2013 Owen County High School Football Homecoming Queen.
    At halftime, Owen County honored the first Rebel football team from 1963 and rededicated Guy Patterson Field.
    The evening wrapped up by celebrating an Owen County win.
    After falling behind 6-0 in the first quarter, the Rebels’ defense held Trimble County High School scoreless the rest of the night.

  • Trenary wins NCKC, sets new...

    It was a repeat performance for Hunter Trenary at the NCKC meet last week at Trimble County.

    In the meet, Keith Stout was 11th; Cory Hudnall was 12th; Logan Bitler finished 16th; Kyle Flood, 26th; Westley Johnson, 33rd; Isaac Beverly, 34th; and Noah Hunter, 38th.
    As a team, the Rebels finished third overall.
    For the girls, it was Autumn Hunter finishing seventh; Audrey Hager, 17th; and Samantha Tamplin, 24th.

  • Rebels fall in district opener

    The opening five weeks of the season have not gone exactly how the Owen County High School Rebels had wanted.
    As they headed to Verona Friday night, they were hoping district play would provide them with a fresh start.
    After being held to just three first-quarter points, the Bearcats were able to get things going in the second quarter. The offense was able to extend the lead to 17-0 before William Lattimore picked off a Tanner Smith pass and returned it 21 yards for a Walton-Verona touchdown.

  • Rebel Ramblings: At home •...

    • Trimble County High School is 0-6 overall on the season and 0-1 in the district. The Raiders are coming off a 22-12 loss to Eminence on Friday night.
    • Trimble County is coached by Justin Franklin who is in his second season at the helm.
    • The Rebels defeated the Raiders 57-6 last season in Bedford.
    • The Raiders have lost 14-straight games. Their last win came on Aug. 24, 2012 when they beat Clinton County High School 10-8 at home.

  • Power heads back to state golf...

    The Owen County High School girls golf team headed to Eagle Creek Country Club Oct. 1 as the defending sixth region champs. Shelby Power went into competition as the defending individual champion.
    At the end of the day, Notre Dame Academy had reclaimed the team title while the Lady Rebels finished eighth.
    Ryle’s Nadine Innes had claimed the individual title while Power finished third. With her third-place finish, the senior Power will be making her third-straight trip to the state golf tournament in Bowling Green this weekend.

  • Lady Rebels ready to defend title

    The Owen County High School girls soccer team will put its 31st district title on the line next week.
    But before the team turns its attention toward the district tournament, they will have to finish the regular season.
    Owen County played two games last week.
    They began the week by taking on Henry County High School at home. The Lady Wildcats would return to New Castle with a 2-0 victory.
    On Wednesday, the Owen County squad traveled to Dayton to take on the Lady Devils. Again, it would be the Lady Rebels dropping a 2-0 decision.

  • Rebels look toward district...

    With just one game remaining in the regular season, the Owen County High School boys soccer team is getting ready for the 31st District Tournament.
    Part of the preparation involved two games last week against two district opponents.
    The first came Sept. 30 when the Rebels traveled to Warsaw to take on Gallatin County High School. It was the fourth meeting between the two rivals this season. The Wildcats won two of the first three games.
    This time, Owen County came away with the 2-0 victory.

  • Volleyball team plays weekend...

    The Owen County High School Lady Rebels volleyball team spent a busy weekend at Western Hills High School. The team was taking part in the Fight Like a Girl Tournament.
    Before they headed to Frankfort, the Owen girls took on Shelby County on Oct. 1 in Owenton. The Lady Rockets defeated the Lady Rebels 2-0 to win the match.
    On Friday night, the team began play in the Fight Like a Girl Tournament by taking on Franklin County High School. Owen County would lose a tough match 2-1.

  • Bad night in Bellevue

    The Owen County High School football team went to Bellevue High School Friday night and hoped to take with them some momentum generated by their victory last week.
    It was not to be.
    The Tigers raced out to a 38-0 lead after the first quarter and never looked back. They would eventually win the game 61-0.
    The win was the second straight for Bellevue over a Class 2A District 5 team. The Tigers defeated Carroll County High School last week.
    Bellevue used a balanced offensive attack from a pair of seniors to win the game.
