    They struggled at the free-throw line and at times did not take good care of the basketball. Despite that the Owen County High School Rebels still had a shot to send their eighth region semifinal contest with Oldham County to overtime.
    Making a third semifinal appearance in the last four years, Owen County entered Monday night’s game looking to avenge a 48-36 loss to the Colonels in February.
    The Rebels reached the semifinals with a hard fought 48-40 win over Anderson County Thursday night.

  • Judo team brings home medals...

    On Feb. 11, 2012, the Owen County Judo Team competed in Springhill, Tenn. at the 2012 Tennessee State Judo Championship. The team returned with three medals.
    Zac Widener dominated both of his opponents.
    Underestimating the effectiveness of Wideners’ choke, his first opponent refused to forfeit, which resulted in him passing out.
    In under a minute in his second match, Widener countered a forward throw with Ushiro Goshi, which involved bumping his opponent forward at the hips, lifting him straight up, and slamming him flat on his back.

  • Lady Rebels capture fifth-...

    Winning never gets old. Just ask the Owen County High School Lady Rebels.
    Owen County High School captured its fifth-consecutive 31st District Championship on Friday night as they dominated Gallatin County High School from the opening tip in cruising to a 61-38 victory.
    The Lady Rebels were never challenged as they used pressure defense and a well-run offense to jump out to a 36-13 at halftime.

  • Owen County boys celebrate...

    Defense wins championships and it is nice when those championships come against your rivals.
    Owen County High School’s defensive effort against Gallatin County High School Saturday night in the 31st District championship game allowed the Rebels to raise the trophy and cut down the nets.
    The 67-58 win gave the Rebels their first 31st District title since 2009 and gave them four straight wins over their rivals from Warsaw.
    Owen County Junior Justin Shelton said beating Gallatin County to win the district makes the night even sweeter.

  • Lady Rebels gear up for...

    Tournament time has arrived for the Owen County Lady Rebels. While the team has some lofty goals for the next two weeks, they still had some work to do to get ready.
    Owen County was in action twice last week to close out the regular season. The girls spent Feb. 13 at Anderson County before coming home for Senior Night on Friday against Grant County.
    The game against the Lady Bearcats in Lawrenceburg did not go as planned as the Lady Rebels got off to a slow start and fell 61-46.
