  • Lady Rebels bow out in 8th...

    The season ended for the Owen County Lady Rebels on Friday night.

    After defeating Oldham County 62-46 in the opening round last Tuesday night in Shelbyville, the Lady Rebels faced a daunting task on Friday night in the semifinals against Simon Kenton.

    The Lady Pioneers entered the Eighth Region tournament as the favorites to repeat as champions and they began the contest playing like it.

  • Rebels earn fifth straight...

    To say the Owen County Rebels have dominated the 31st District over the past five seasons would be an understatement.

    Just look at the numbers. In the last five seasons the Rebels are now 42-5 against teams from the 31st District, including a 25 game winning streak against district foes.

    Their dominance was on full display this week at the 31st District Tournament in Warsaw as they captured their fifth straight 31st District crown. Owen County claimed the title with a 66-54 win over Henry County on Saturday night in front of a packed crowd of Rebel supporters.

  • Momentum carries Lady Rebels to...

    It seems like a distant memory now but two years ago the Lady Rebels won just a single game. On Friday night in Warsaw, the team returned to the summit of the 31st District with a 46-43 win over Gallatin County.

    “We’re back,” said a smiling Molly Gamble, holding her piece of the net she had just cut down. “We’ve had a rough couple of years so this means a lot.”

  • Lady Rebels rally for victory...

    The Owen County Lady Rebels were in need of some positive momentum on Friday night as they hosted Grant County in the regular season finale.

    A 56-31 win over the Lady Braves was just what they needed.

    Earlier this season the team traveled to Dry Ridge where they were looking to snap a five-game losing streak. They did so with a 64-58 win. The return engagement would not be as close as the Lady Rebels jumped to an 8-0 lead and never let off the gas pedal in rolling to the easy win. This time around the victory stopped a three-game losing streak.

  • Senior Night victory: Rebels...

    The Owen County Rebels saved their best for last Thursday night in Owenton.

    Head coach Devin Duvall summed it up best, “It was the best crowd we’ve ever had, the best ceremony we’ve ever had and the best team we’ve ever had.”

    Fans showed up early for a game that featured the two top teams in the Eighth Region in Owen County and Oldham County. Before the game tipped off fans had their chance to pay tribute to five seniors who have taken the program to heights it has never been before.

    The Owen County Athletics Hall of Fame welcomed four new members on Saturday night.

    Guy Patterson, Jim Glass, Curt Cochran and Dustin Downey were each given their place of honor in the Hall of Fame prior to Saturday night’s game with South Oldham.

    Patterson’s sons accepted his plaque during the ceremony as he was honored as being the father of Owen County football. The football stadium is named in his honor.

  • Lady Rebels continue search for...

    The Owen County Lady Rebels are in need of some positive momentum as the regular season draws to a close. After a pair of losses last week the team has now dropped three in a row.

    The week began with a road game at Oldham County. The game was close throughout with the Lady Rebels holding a lead in the fourth quarter. Poor shooting and turnovers finally caught up with them as the Lady Colonels took the lead and won the game 48-36.

  • Rebels break tie in last minute...

    It is not always about how many shots you make but when you make them.

    Owen County’s Chad McDonald was not enjoying a good shooting night against South Oldham Saturday night. Still, in the game’s final moments the senior wanted the ball.

    With the game tied at 73-73 and less than a minute to play the Rebels called timeout to set up a play. Knowing the Dragons were going to double team Carson Williams who already had scored 40 points, McDonald told head coach Devin Duvall that he was ready.
