  • Lady Rebels end regular season...

    A week that began in the rain ended in the glow of sunshine and a win.
    The Owen County softball team opened up last week by taking on Grant County at home. The game was played in less than desirable conditions — it was raining and cold. Not only were spirits dampened by the weather but also by the outcome of the game, for the Lady Braves defeated the Lady Rebels, 8-4.
    The team bounced back Thursday night when they traveled to Frankfort and defeated the Lady Panthers, 14-0.
