  • Lady Rebels fall in finals

    When the Eighth Region All “A” Classic was held in January, it was assumed that Owen County would meet Walton-Verona in the championship game. A funny thing happened on the way to the finals, however, when the Lady Rebels lost to Williamstown in the semifinals.
    The two schools eventually squared off in the Eighth Region All “A” Classic Sunday at Gallatin County. It was not on the hardwood but on the softball diamond.
    Owen County began the tournament Friday with an easy 7-1 win over Carroll County.

  • Lady Rebels weather storm to win...

    The Owen County Lady Rebels took part in the “Where’s the Beach Classic” over the weekend in Rockcastle County. Maybe the event should have been named the “Where’s the Basement Classic?”
    After playing Friday night and losing 2-1 to Clay County in extra innings, the Lady Rebels were facing two more games Saturday. They did not know they would be taking on the weather as well.

  • Judo team shines at Tennessee...

  • Playing for a cause

    Saturday was a great day for golf.
    The 12th Annual Charlie Satterwhite Memorial Golf Shamble was held Saturday at Fairway Golf Course in Wheatley.
    Windy and chilly conditions did not dampen the spirits of those who came to play golf and enjoy a good meal. The tournament raises money for the Satterwhite Fund which supports the Trust for Life Organ Donation Program. Some of the proceeds also go to help the Owen County Senior Citizens Activity Fund.

  • Rebel bats come alive

    The results may not have been what they wanted, but there were positive signs last week for the Owen County baseball team. The Rebels played five games last week and won two, but the team scored double-digit runs in three of the contests.
    Owen County began the week with a 19-10 win over Frankfort.
    They then dropped a 5-2 decision to Lloyd. The Rebels then produced another offensive outburst as they defeated Eminence, 13-2.
    The team then closed out the week with a pair of games at Pendleton County. The Rebels dropped the first 12-10 and the second 9-6.
