  • Defense sparks Rebels

    The old saying goes defense wins championships.

    For the Owen County Rebels, defense has been the difference since dropping the opening game of the season to Western Hills.

    The Wolverines scored 57 points in their 1-point overtime win over the Rebels on night one.

    In their next three games, no opponent has managed to score more than 44 points, resulting in three victories for the Rebels.

    Trimble County and Carroll County were the latest opponents to struggle offensively and fall to Owen County.

  • After dropping opener, Rebels...

    It was not the sort of opening night the Rebels were hoping for. But they did bounce back.

    Owen County opened the season Nov. 30 against Western Hills. The contest was tight throughout with neither team able to take command of the game. The Wolverines eventually won in overtime, 57-56.

    The Rebels were playing somewhat shorthanded as Zach Ripy was battling an illness. The team, however, got a boost from an unexpected source. Junior Cooper Taylor played well, scoring 10 points. Ripy did play and scored seven points but it was obvious that he was not his usual self.

  • Lady Rebels shine against...

    The U10 Lady Rebels competed in the Commonwealth Cup in Richmond Nov. 6-7.

    Finishing the weekend with a 2-1-1 record, the Lady Rebels represented the OCYSL well and continue to develop into soccer stars.

    Nelson County Ladybugs, 3  — Lady Rebels, 1

    The excellent footwork of Maria Bolanos, who scored midway through the first half, coupled with excellent defense by fullback Hailee Gordon and goalie Autumn Bolen gave the Lady Rebels the lead at the half.

  • MBMS players and coach join east...

    The trio received a lot of attention and accolades for their efforts this past season.

  • Hard work pays off for soccer...

  • Young Runnin’ Rebels...

    The question did not take long to answer.

    When asked about the upcoming basketball season and the outlook for his Rebels, Owen County High School Head Basketball Coach Devin Duvall had a quick response.

    “We’re young,” he said.

    Owen County High School lost several key players to graduation at the end of last year.

    Blake Lewis, Kyle Kelly, Jordan Shelton and Michael Colligan graduated, taking with them a huge chunk of scoring and rebounding from a year ago.
