  • Lady Rebels grab top seed in...

    The 31st District Tournament may be a month away but one thing is for certain. The Owen County High School Lady Rebels will be No. 1 going into the week.
    The three-time champs wrapped up the No. 1 seed with a pair of wins last week over Gallatin County and Henry County. The Lady Rebels defeated Gallatin County, 67-51, Jan. 3 before knocking off the Lady Wildcats, 46-28, Friday night.
    The last four wins have one thing in common. They have not been close.

  • Ripy named player of the week

    For the second-consecutive week, a Runnin’ Rebel has been named NCKC Player of the Week.
    Sophomore guard  Zach Ripy scored 27 points in two conference wins over Trimble  County and Carroll County
    Ripy shot over 50 percent from the floor while handing out seven assists  with six steals.
     

  • Model champions

    If the Owen County Rebels fell asleep before midnight on New Year’s Eve, it would be hard to blame them.
    The team had just finished four games in three days that led to their winning the Shirley Kearns Invitational at Model Laboratory High School in Richmond.
    Owen County opened up pool play Dec. 28 against Clinton County.
    The Rebels got off to a good start before allowing the Bulldogs to get back in the game. In the end, the Rebels prevailed with a 65-56 win.

  • Youth named to all-star bowl

    Three Owen County football players have been named to the second-annual Offense-Defense Youth All-American Bowl.
    Sixth-graders David Gray and Jordan Willhoite, along with fourth-grader Jason Gray, joined dozens of other outstanding players in their age group in an east meets west nationwide clash, part of a week-long series of events leading up to the nationally-televised, fifth-annual Offense-Defense All-American Bowl, an all-star football game of similar format showcasing 80 of the top high-school seniors in the country. 

  • Lady Rebels catch a good break

    While most were returning unwanted sweaters at the mall last week, the Owen County Lady Rebels were playing some of their best basketball of the season.
    Last week, the team spent three days in Shelby County taking part in the Max Performance Invitational.
    After falling in their opener against Male High School, the Lady Rebels cruised to a pair of victories over Shelby County and Bishop Brossart.
    Owen County began the week with a match-up against the Lady Bulldogs from Male. The game was tight for three quarters.

  • Looking back at the year in high...

    Owen County once again enjoyed a successful year on the field of play. Whether it was a football field, a basketball court, a soccer pitch, a golf course, a baseball diamond or a cross-country course, the Rebels once again made their mark.
    Beginning in February both the boys’ and girls’ basketball teams reached 31st District championship games.
    For the third-straight season, the girls cut down the nets as they defeated Carroll County.

  • Owen County girls shake off...

    Owen County High School Head Girls Basketball Coach Bob Osborne still doesn’t think the Lady Rebels are where they can be.
    Don’t tell that to Trimble County.
    Owen County closed out the pre-Christmas portion of its schedule Dec. 21 with another double-digit win over Trimble County.
    The Lady Rebels defeated the Lady Raiders 54-38 to improve their record to 6-1.
    In their six victories this season, Owen County has won by an average of 21 points.
    Osborne said the squad has room for improvement.

  • Rebels run to overtime victory

    The Owen County Rebels were disappointed after their loss to Henry County Dec. 17.
    And at halftime of their game against Walton-Verona Dec. 20, it seemed like they were going to have a blue Christmas.
    Walton-Verona came to Owenton and after 16 minutes of basketball the Bearcats held a 30-20 lead.
    After intermission, the Rebels began chipping away at the Bearcats’ lead.

  • Goodbye 2010

    It is hard to believe 2010 is almost over. It seems like we barely knew you. The past year did provide us with some memorable moments in the world of sports.

  • Lady Rebels enjoy a merry week

    The Lady Rebels could not have asked for a better start to district play. After three games against 31st District opponents, Owen County has yet to suffer defeat. In fact they have won all three games by double digits.
    The team knocked off Carroll County two weeks ago to begin district play. They then traveled to Gallatin County and Henry County last week and continued their winning ways.
