  • 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.

    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.

    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.

  • Runnin’ Rebels slip in overtime

    The Owen County High School Rebels went in Thursday night’s game with Carroll County riding a four-game winning streak. It was the first time since 2006 the team had begun the season 4-0.
    The streak would come to an end as the Panthers defeated the Rebels 53-51 in overtime in a game that had a definite tournament atmosphere.
    Things began well for the Rebels as they jumped out to an early 8-2 lead.
    The Panthers would eventually get their legs under them and cut the lead to 8-7 at the end of the first quarter.
