  • So you want to be a Wildcat?

    If you were looking for a last minute gift for Father’s Day this weekend I have an idea for you. I learned this week that University of Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari is hosting a basketball camp in September for those who want to live out their dream of being a Wildcat.
    For just $7,500 you could send your man to the John Calipari Basketball Fantasy Experience. The camp includes dinner at Coach Cal’s house, playing games on the floor of Rupp Arena and getting instruction from former and current players. Oh yeah, don’t forget the bag of freebies from Nike.

  • Was this the best year ever for...

    I have only been covering Owen County athletics for a few years now but as the year concluded last week I can’t remember a better one.
    Let us start last fall with the football and volleyball teams. On the gridiron the Rebels went 10-0 during the regular season. They won the district and a first round playoff game before eventually losing in the second round to the team they would go on to win the 2A state championship. The Rebels were not just winning games by narrow margins. They were punishing the opposition winning their 11 games by an average of 22 points.

  • Seasons end for baseball,...

    Memorial Day was not a day to remember for the Owen County High baseball and softball teams.
    The softball team earned a trip to the eighth region tournament after reaching the finals of the 31st district tournament for the first time since 2010.

  • Team Ward knocks off Wildcats...

    Clovers - 1 vs. Little Rebels - 0
     In the first round of the U8 tournament, the Clovers walked away with the win to advance to the semi-finals. Scoring for the Clovers was Brionna Crowe. This was the first win of the season for the Clovers. Unfortunately, this was the final game for the Little Rebels who had an incredible season. Coach Larry Kenner is so proud of the Little Rebels. They all put forth great effort during the season and made his first season as a soccer coach memorable.

  • Chapter ends for pair

    Saturday was a special day for two Owen County young people. It would be a day that marked two endings, one in the morning and the other that night.
    Seniors Katie Haines and Patrick Brumback have been a part of the Owen County Youth Soccer League since they were 4 years old.
    They began as players and on Saturday, they finished as referees.
    Saturday morning marked their final games before hanging up their whistles.
    On Saturday night, they both graduated from Owen County High School.

  • Rebels finish strong

    It is tournament time for the Owen County High School Rebels on the baseball diamond.
    The Rebels finished the season with a flourish last week, winning three of their final four contests.
    The week began May 15 with a trip to play Paul Laurence Dunbar High School. Owen County lost the game 8-0.
    They stayed on the road on Thursday with a bus ride to play at Frankfort. The ride home after this game would be more enjoyable as the Rebels won the game 8-6.
    The Rebels would then return home Friday night for a doubleheader against Villa Madonna.
