  • Rebels helping Rebels

    The summer started off right for dozens of young basketball hopefuls as Owen County High School Boys Basketball Head Coach Devin Duvall hosted his annual camp with the help of his staff and players from the boys and girls squad. The week-long camp focused on fundamentals and skill enhancement.

  • Baseball at its finest

    It is one of my favorite scenes from a movie. Terrance Mann played by James Earl Jones is talking to an Iowa farmer who plowed under his corn field to build a baseball field. His words give me goose bumps every time.
    “The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It’s been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game is a part of our past, Ray. It reminds us of all that once was good and it could be again.”

  • State champions AGAIN

    The Owen County Judo Team took first place at the O.J. Helvey Kentucky State Judo Championship May 21 in Berea. This is the third time in the last five years the judo team has won the state championship.

    OCPS — Merideth David, first and first places; Carsyn Inman, first and second places.

  • Wash returns to all-star game

    While most kids are just beginning to enjoy summer break from school, one outstanding Owen County football player will be hitting the gridiron.
    For the second-straight year, Michael Wash will be taking part in the Kentucky versus Tennessee All-Star Football Game. The game features the top middle-school players from both states in a game for bragging rights.
    Wash tried out for the team in April, and once again was placed on the 42-man roster. He will be playing linebacker and wide receiver.
