  • Rebels drop three straight over...

    The Owen County Rebels are hoping the beginning of 2012 will be better than the end of 2011.
    The team spent some of their holiday break at the Gateway Holiday Tournament at Montgomery County.
    The Rebels began the week Dec, 28 by taking on the host Indians. Montgomery County is considered one of the top teams in the 10th Region.

  • No growing pains

    Many kids play basketball but not all of them are basketball players.
    The Maurice Bowling Middle School eighth-grade Rebels are basketball players and they are good.
    The team finished the season with a perfect record and it is not the first time. In fact, the team that has been playing together since they were in the third grade was also perfect last year as seventh graders.
    In fact, the last time they lost a regular season game was in the fourth grade.

  • Perfect ladies

    It’s hard to find much wrong with the Owen County High School Lady Rebels at this point in the season.
    They are 7-0 and have won those games by an average margin of 33 points. That is why when they win by just 18 points against a district rival, it seems strange.
    Owen County defeated Henry County 45-27 Friday night in Owenton but when the game ended everyone seemed a little flat.
    After jumping out to an early lead in the first quarter, the Lady Wildcats were able to get back into the game and close the gap to 11-10 in the second quarter.

  • Rebels rout rivals

    Rebels rout rivals
    Things didn’t get off to a good start last week.
    During the Owen County High School Rebels’ final practice last Monday before taking on Gallatin County, big man Sawyer Williams was injured.
    To make matters worse, during the junior varsity game Dec. 13,  Collin Trammel was injured.
    That is when the Runnin’ Rebels became the resilient Rebels.

  • Rebels roll to pair of wins

    It was another winning week for Owen County.
    The Owen County High School Rebels picked up two wins last week as they beat Trimble County and Carroll County on the road.
    Owen County opened the week with a dominating 43-20 win at Trimble County. Stone Osborne nearly outscored the Raiders by himself as he tossed in 18 points. The senior also grabbed seven rebounds and dished out a pair of assists.

  • Ladies dominate court

    Any fears of a letdown were greatly exaggerated.
    After a big win over Walton-Verona to begin last week. some people may have wondered if the Owen County High School Lady Rebels would have the same focus at Carroll County on Friday night.
    They did.
    Owen County allowed just two first-half points to the Lady Panthers and cruised to a 55-10 win.
    The Lady Rebels were led by Rianna Gayheart and Kennedi Dermon who each tossed in 13 points. Gayheart also added eight assists.

  • Lady Rebels win early showdown

    It was an early season test and the Lady Rebels passed.
    After an easy win to begin the season last week at Williamstown, Owen County returned home Monday night to take on Walton-Verona. The Lady Bearcats came to Owenton as the defending Eighth Region All ‘A’ champions and the Eighth Region champions.
    Both teams got off to fast starts with Owen County taking a 18-15 lead after the first quarter.
    Both squads would pick up the defensive intensity in the second quarter.

  • Rebels off to strong start

    The fourth time is the charm.
    For the fourth-straight season, Owen County High School began the basketball season by playing Western Hills.
    For the first time in those meetings the Rebels won. They defeated the Wolverines Nov. 28 by a score of 63-55 for their first win of the season.
    The Rebels jumped out to a 37-24 lead at halftime and then held on down the stretch.
    Owen County junior Justin Shelton had a career night in the win.
    He led the Rebels with 19 points and nine rebounds.

  • Gayheart will continue...
