  • Lady Rebels begin softball...

    The Owen County Lady Rebels picked up two more wins on softball field.

    After winning their opener at Frankfort, the Lady Rebels played a pair of home games against Grant County and Lloyd Memorial last week.

    On Monday, the team hosted the Lady Braves. Owen County proved to be a very ungracious host as they sent Grant County back to Dry Ridge with a 6-1 loss. Megan Wilhoite pitched five strong innings, striking out five before Katelyn Parker came in to close things out. Reagan Sutton provided some pop at the plate collecting three hits.

  • Former Rebels standouts wrap up...

    With the college basketball season winding down two former Owen County standouts have wrapped up their 2015-2016 campaigns.

  • Baseball off to rough start...

    It has not been a good start for the Owen County baseball team.

    The team began the season last week with five games outside of Owenton. They would lose each of them.

    The Rebels dropped a tough one-run contest at Carroll County last Tuesday as they fell 8-7 to the Panthers. It was the team’s seventh straight loss to Carroll County. The last time the Rebels knocked off the Panthers was back on May 22, 2012, when Owen County won 8-7 in the semifinals of the 31st District Tournament.

  • Fast start to season for track

    Both the girls’ and boys’ track teams have gotten out of the starting blocks well.

    The teams took part in two meets this past week. The first was last Tuesday at the Shelby County All-Comers and the second was Friday night at the Boone County Invitational.

    Both teams performed well in Shelbyville with the girls finishing first as team and the boys second overall. The girls finished the evening ten points better than the host school, Shelby County, while the boys fell just short, also to the Rockets.

  • Lady Rebels open season with win...

    Sometimes life and sports intersect. That was the case last week for the Owen County softball team.

    The Lady Rebels opened their season on Thursday in Frankfort amidst an emotional week for many of the Owen County players.

    Following the death last Monday of classmate Ellie Stout, the team gathered on Wednesday night.

    “It was really good to get most all of us in the dugout and just be together,” said head coach Greg Wilhoite. “It’s a tough time to be a coach and try to find the right words for them.”

  • Returning players chasing...

    The Owen County Rebels return to the baseball diamond next week.

    The team begins the 2016 season on Tuesday when they travel to Carrollton to take on the Panthers. The Rebels finished 11-15 overall last season and were 6-4 against teams from the 31st District. They were 0-2 against Carroll County.

  • Lady Rebels softball returns to...

    It is back to action for the Owen County Lady Rebels softball team.

    The Lady Rebels will begin the 2016 campaign tomorrow when they travel to take on Frankfort. Owen County finished the 2015 with a 14-11 record. The 14 wins were an improvement over 2014 when the team won just eight games.

  • DRAGONS EXACT REVENGE AGAINST...

    The season was not supposed to end like this.

    The Owen County Rebels entered the Eighth Region tournament last week with expectations at an all-time high. Instead of the dream ending they were hoping for, the Rebels suffered a nightmarish loss in the first round to South Oldham.

    Trailing 56-52 early in the fourth quarter, the Dragons went on a 21-5 run to take a 73-61 lead. They would hold on down the stretch to claim the game and advance to the semifinals with an 81-76 win.

  • 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.
