  • Wildcats Defeat Rebels

    Sports are a funny thing. One week you can feel the highs of winning only to feel the lows of losing the next. Following the victory of the first game, Friday night produced more lows than highs for Adam Fowler and the rest of the Owen County football team as the Rebels dropped a 27-6 decision to Gallatin County at Patterson Field.

  • Boys Golf preparing for NCKC/All...

    They are young, but they continue to improve every time they play. Led by a seventh-grader and an eighth-grader, the Owen County Rebels are off to a good start on the 2008 season. The team played a pair of matches last week, earning a split. The week began with a match against Carroll County. The Rebels proved too much for the Panthers as they won the match. Seventh-grader Jarrod Ball shot a 39 while eighth-grader Zach Ripy posted a 41. Thursday saw Walton-Verona come to Fairway Golf Course for a match.

  • Fowler earns first win for Rebel...

    So much for the victory celebration Bishop Brossart had planned.

    The Owen County football team ruined any hopes the Mustangs had of getting their first ever varsity win on Friday night. Instead, they gave head coach Adam Fowler his first win as a varsity head coach by beating the second-year program 18-6 at Newport High School.

    When asked if it was nice to get the monkey off his back in week one, Fowler said, “It really is. All the pressure is gone.”

  • Kickers capture Owen Invitational

    It is said that defense wins championships. For the Owen County boy’s soccer team it was a pair of shutouts that led to winning the Owen County Invitational on Saturday. The Rebels defeated Spencer County and Walton-Verona to claim the title. The week began with a pair of tough defeats to Sayre and Frankfort. Owen County lost in a shootout to Sayre and dropped a 2-0 decision to Frankfort. The Rebels opened up play on Saturday morning against Spencer County; and Billy Patton opened up the scoring early in the first half to give the Rebels a 1-0 lead.

  • Practice makes perfect

    The beginning of August can mean only two things. School is about ready to begin and so are the fall sports at Owen County High School. Practice has been under way at the school for over two weeks as each team gets ready for the upcoming season. The football team will be under the direction of a new head coach, Adam Fowler. The Rebels and their new coach will be looking to improve on a 2007 campaign, which saw them win just one game. The team will kick off the season on Aug. 29 against Bishop Brossart in Alexandria. The boys and girls’ soccer teams will begin their season on Aug.
