  • Wildcats win rematch

    When Owen County defeated Gallatin County by 28 points in December, fans of both teams wondered how it happened and what it meant.
    After the rematch in Owenton, those same questions are again being asked.
    The Wildcats came to town Jan. 10 and turned the tables on the Rebels and came away with a 64-53 victory.
    The two teams played a nearly even first half but Gallatin County held a 21-20 lead at halftime.
    Things would however change dramatically in the third quarter in favor of the team in blue.

  • Boys All ‘A’ Classic preview

    • Owen County enters the tournament as the defending Eighth Region champs. The Rebels are looking to become the first team to repeat as champs since Gallatin County won three straight from 2006 through 2008. The only other team to repeat is Carroll County who won in 1997 and 1998.
    • Of the seven teams currently in the Eighth Region, Eminence is the only one not to have won the title at least once. Henry County and Spencer County have also won championships but are no longer in the tournament due to enrollment size.

  • Semifinal exit for Lady Rebels

    The temperature outside last week was well above normal.
    Inside, the shooting percentage for the Lady Rebels was well below normal.
    The Owen County High School girls basketball team, which has made 43 percent of their shots from the field this season, had a bad night in a game they could not afford to lose.
    On Friday night in Eminence, the Lady Rebels shot just 18 percent from the field which lead to a 47-40 loss to Trimble County in the semifinals of the Eighth Region All ‘A’ Classic.

  • Lady Rebels hope to begin new...

    When Henry County defeated Owen County on Dec. 18, 2009, it was the last time the Lady Rebels had lost a game to a 31st district opponent.
    Since that time, the team had won 27 consecutive games.
    That streak ended Thursday night.

  • Rebels streak into new year

    2013 began the same way 2012 ended for the Owen County High School Rebels – with a win.
    The Rebels ended 2012 with four-straight wins. They began with a blowout victory at Gallatin County before they headed off to Belfry after Christmas for the Mountain Schoolboy Classic where they defeated Cordia, Pike County Central and Cass High School of Georgia.

  • Kentucky had a banner year for...

    It was a year for deer and bear season records, expanded public hunting opportunities and improved access to Kentucky’s premier trout stream.
    Here’s a look back at a few of the top stories from 2012:

    Kentucky hunters harvested a record number of white-tailed deer.
    With 35 days of archery hunting and a two-day youth season remaining before season’s end, hunters eclipsed the overall deer harvest total record. As of Dec. 18, hunters harvested 126,923 deer. This total breaks the previous season record of 124,752 set in 2004.

  • Warriors out duel Rebels

    Sometimes, it’s just not your night.
    For the Owen County High School Runnin’ Rebels, that night was Dec. 18.
    The team traveled to Eminence last week and looked to build off the positive momentum they picked up in their win at Henry County.
    The Rebels would play well. They shot 52 percent from the field and 75 percent from the free-throw line. On most nights, those numbers would be good enough to come home with a win.
    For all the Rebels’  efforts, the Warriors played just a little better.

  • Rebel Review 2012

    Another year is nearly in the books. When one looks back on 2012, there will be plenty of highlights to remember.
    The year began with the boys’ basketball team winning the Eighth Region All ‘A’ Classic. They went to Frankfort and won their first-round game before falling in the quarterfinals. As expected, the Owen County faithful came out in large numbers to support the Rebels during the two games in the All ‘A’ State Tournament.

  • Runnin' Rebels get first...

    The Owen County High School boys’ basketball team entered last week needing to get a bad taste out of their mouths. The Rebels were coming off their first loss of the season after a loss in overtime at home to Carroll County.
    The first chance to get back on the winning path came Dec. 11 against Walton-Verona.
    After falling behind 14-9 at the end of the first quarter, the Rebels came back in the second quarter to take a 28-27 lead into the locker room at halftime.
    The second half belonged to Owen County as they pulled away for the 63-52 win.

  • Lady Rebels stay perfect in...

    The Lady Rebels continue to be the dominant team in the 31st District.
    Owen County picked up two more wins last week over district competition as well as a victory over a visitor from the Hoosier state.
    The team began last week by traveling to Warsaw to take on Gallatin County.  The Lady Wildcats are considered to be the biggest competition for Owen County in its quest for six-straight district titles.
