    The Lady Rebels have gotten used to winning close games. In their last four wins, including the Jan.28 contest, the team had won by an average of just 3.5 points. They needed a game that was not decided in the final minute and they got it.
    On Thursday night, Owen County traveled to Carroll County for their final 31st District game of the season. The Lady Rebels were looking to finish the regular season with just one blemish on the district schedule.

  • ‘A’ history-making night

    The Owen County Rebels entered the Eighth Region All ‘A’ Classic last week with a chance to make history. No other Rebel team had ever won back-to-back titles.
    Owen County won the tournament in 1996 and also in 2003 but were not able to duplicate the feat the following season. In fact, in 2004 the Rebels lost in the first round.
    Saturday night at Williamstown, the Rebels punched their ticket back to Frankfort with a 69-47 win over Walton-Verona in the championship game.
