    Carson Williams has won plenty of awards throughout his career. None bigger than the one he brought back to Owenton last Tuesday night.

    The OCHS senior was named Mr. Kentucky High School Basketball at the annual Mr. and Miss Kentucky Basketball Awards Ceremony, held March 15 at the Lexington Center’s Bluegrass Ballroom.

    Williams is the first Rebel to ever win the state’s most prestigious award for basketball players.

    Joining him was Erin Boley, from Elizabethtown High School who captured the title of Miss Basketball.

    It was business as usual last Tuesday night for the Owen County Rebels.

    The last time the Rebels lost a game within the 31st District was on January 27, 2014. Ironically, that loss came in Eminence. It was not to the Warriors, but rather to Carroll County in the championship game of the 8th Region All ‘A’ Classic.

    The Owen County Lady Rebels did not have much time for holiday returns following Christmas. Just days after Christmas, the team traveled to Frankfort to take part in the Capital City Holiday Classic on Dec. 29 and 30.

    On Tuesday the team took on South Oldham in the first game of the tournament. Owen County led 30-22 at the half on their way to a 57-45 win over the Lady Dragons. The win was the first for Owen County over South Oldham since Dec. 29, 2009 when they won 42-32 at Western Hills.

  • Rebels win two, but fall to...

    If the Owen County Rebels did not already know it, they learned last week that they can compete with the best teams across Kentucky. 

    The team took on Fairdale in the first game of the consolation bracket last Monday. The Rebels led 29-21 at intermission and extended the lead to 50-36 at the end of the third quarter. The Bulldogs would rally in the fourth quarter, but the Rebels would hang on to win 63-56.

This is the fifth straight season the two teams have faced each other early in the year. Heading into last week’s contest the two teams had split the previous four match ups.

    All wins are good. Some wins are great. The Rebels enjoyed both last week.
