    October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

    This means that plenty of people have been seeing pink this month. The show of support for those who have suffered from or are suffering from this dreaded disease has carried over to high-school football fields all over the country.

    Even Maurice Bowling Middle School got into the act a couple of weeks ago during its playoff game. The BMS cheerleading squad wore pink socks and used pink pom-poms during the game.

    • South Oldham will enter Friday night’s contest after dropping a 38-37 decision to Anderson County two weeks ago at home. The loss dropped their overall record to 6-3. The Dragons had a bye last week.

  • Centurians overpower Rebels

    It was not how the Owen County seniors had hoped things would go.

    The Rebels played their final home game of the 2010 season Friday night against Christian Academy-Louisville.

    After one quarter, Owen County found themselves in a 7-0 hole.

    The Centurions then scored 32 unanswered points in the second quarter to break the game open.

    They would not look back as they went home to Louisville with a 60-6 win.

    From what they saw on tape, the Owen County coaching staff said they knew the Centurions were a good football team.

  • Hoop sets record for Rebel...

    For the rest of the North Central Kentucky Conference, Oct. 12 was a bittersweet day. Although everyone in the conference respects Owen County senior Danielle Hoop, they also may be happy to see her graduate. Why? Then one of their runners might have a chance to win the NCKC Championship.

    Hoop won her fourth straight conference championship last week and the fifth in the last six years. The senior finished the race 29 seconds ahead of Madison Peace from Walton-Verona.

  • Young Rebels fall in playoffs

    Bowling Middle School Football Coach Tommy Tackett knew his team needed to play the perfect game for his team to win their opening game in the Kentucky Middle School State Playoffs.

    Even though they played well, it was not enough. The Wildcats of Henry County knocked off the Rebels 26-6 Saturday evening at Patterson Field.

    Following the game, Tackett told the team how proud he was of them. The coach reminded them of how far they had come during the regular season and told them to hold their heads high as they walked off the field.

  • Rebels drop fourth straight

    Owen County headed to Carrollton Friday night with their hopes set high on returning with their fourth win of the season. They came home shaking their heads wondering how they lost their fourth-straight game.

    Things began well enough as Joey Wood took a toss sweep and went 10 yards for a score to cap off the Rebels’ second drive of the night. The extra point gave Owen County an early 7-0 lead.

    The Panthers answered right back as they scored to tie the game at 7-7.

  • Playoff bound

    After beginning the season with back-to-back losses, the playoffs may not have been on the minds of the Bowling Middle School Rebels.

    After six-straight wins to finish the season, they can think about them now.

    The Rebels will host Henry County at 5  p.m. Saturday at Patterson Field in the first round of the middle school playoffs.

    The game will be a rematch of the second game of the season when the Wildcats defeated the Rebels 44-8. The boys from Bowling Middle School are looking forward to the rematch.

  • Power Plays

    Krista Power recently became only the second Owen County student to bring home top honors at the Sixth Region High School Girls Golf Tournament.

    Power became the first female golfer from Owen County to win a regional golf championship since Ashley Kendall did it in 1998 and 2000.

    Power captured the region championship with a 76 at Eagle Creek Country Club. Power won the title by five strokes over the runner-up, Morgan Larison of Simon Kenton High School.

    “It was my goal when the season started and I accomplished it,” Power said.
