    Nelson County Ladybugs, 3  — Lady Rebels, 1

    The excellent footwork of Maria Bolanos, who scored midway through the first half, coupled with excellent defense by fullback Hailee Gordon and goalie Autumn Bolen gave the Lady Rebels the lead at the half.

  • MBMS players and coach join east...

  • Young Runnin’ Rebels...

    The question did not take long to answer.

    When asked about the upcoming basketball season and the outlook for his Rebels, Owen County High School Head Basketball Coach Devin Duvall had a quick response.

    “We’re young,” he said.

    Owen County High School lost several key players to graduation at the end of last year.

    Blake Lewis, Kyle Kelly, Jordan Shelton and Michael Colligan graduated, taking with them a huge chunk of scoring and rebounding from a year ago.

  • Winners at UT judo competition

    Experienced players from the Owen County Judo Team competed Nov. 20 at the University of Tennessee.

  • Lady Rebels looking to add...

    The Owen County Lady Rebels have won three straight 31st district championships. They hope they are not done yet.

     

    The Lady Rebels get set to open another basketball season Monday night at home against Grant County.

     

    Owen County finished last season 17-10. The team again captured the 31st district title by knocking off Carroll County 49-37 in the finals. They lost to Simon Kenton in the first round in the eigth-region tournament.

     

  • Crossing the finish line

    A brilliant high school career is over.

    Owen County High School senior Danielle Hoop ran the final race of her high school career Saturday. It was only fitting her final race came at the Class A State Cross Country Meet. In her fifth all-time appearance at the state meet, Hoop ran to a sixth-place finish.

    For the second year in a row, Maddox Patterson from Sayre School in Lexington won the race. She was followed by Kaitlin Snapp from Danville High School and Ann Eason, who is also a student at Sayre.

  • Power announces college choice

    The 2010 golf season was a big one for OCHS senior Krista Power (center). After winning the sixth regional golf competition and then heading to state — where she won the sportsmanship award — she finished off the season by signing a letter of intent to Morehead State University Friday. She was joined by Randy Bishop, who served as athletic director during Power’s season, current athletic directors Jeff Sutton and T.J. Wesselman, sister Shelby Power, mother Jennifer Power and father Shawn Power.

     

  • Chainsaw can’t stop...

    Some people just love to prove doctors wrong and one Owen County man is doing so in a record-setting fashion.

    After nearly losing an arm in a chainsaw accident almost 20 years ago, David W. Mears of Owenton recently set several new state records in weightlifting.

    Although he already owned every record in his 308 lbs. weight division, Mears established new marks in bench lifting, squats, dead lift and overall weight in the state of Kentucky for the Natural Athletic Strength Association.

    “It was by far the best meet of my life,” Mears said.

  • Youth Rebels come up short in...

    Both teams came up short in their quest for a championship. The Mighty Pro team fell to Walton while the Power House team lost to Grant County Gold.
