    The tournament consisted of 12 teams. In pool play, the Rebels fell to North Pulaski and Garrard and defeated Campbell County.
    They did, however, get hot in the tournament portion.
    They were victorious over Lincoln County, East Jessamine and Richmond Model.
    In the championship game they lost to North Pulaski.

  • Williams honored for gridiron...

    Owen County High School junior Sawyer Williams may be busy on the hardwood these days, but he was recently honored for his efforts last fall on the gridiron.
    Williams was named as an honorable mention to the Kentucky All-State High School Football Team.
    For the season, Williams led the Rebels in tackles with 62 and fumble recoveries with three.
    Owen County High School Head Football Coach Adam Fowler said Sawyer is nearly unblockable on the defensive line when he gets after the quarterback.  

  • Rebels two timing

    It was a week of streaks for the Owen County High School Boys Basketball team. Two streaks to be exact, and both involve the number two.
    On Jan. 4, the Rebels defeated Gallatin County for the second time this season. The 54-50 victory marked the first time since 2005 Owen County has won two straight over their rivals from Warsaw.
    “It’s the first time in a long time,” said Justin Shelton of the two-game winning streak.

    Last year in Warsaw it was Walton-Verona who cut down the nets as they defeated Carroll County, Owen County and Gallatin County on their way to the championship.
    The Lady Bearcats’ win last year was their first trip to Richmond since 2000 when they won the tournament at Trimble County.

    The 31st District Tournament may be a month away but one thing is for certain. The Owen County High School Lady Rebels will be No. 1 going into the week.

  • Model champions

    If the Owen County Rebels fell asleep before midnight on New Year’s Eve, it would be hard to blame them.
    The team had just finished four games in three days that led to their winning the Shirley Kearns Invitational at Model Laboratory High School in Richmond.
    Owen County opened up pool play Dec. 28 against Clinton County.
    The Rebels got off to a good start before allowing the Bulldogs to get back in the game. In the end, the Rebels prevailed with a 65-56 win.

  • Lady Rebels catch a good break

    While most were returning unwanted sweaters at the mall last week, the Owen County Lady Rebels were playing some of their best basketball of the season.
    Last week, the team spent three days in Shelby County taking part in the Max Performance Invitational.
    After falling in their opener against Male High School, the Lady Rebels cruised to a pair of victories over Shelby County and Bishop Brossart.
    Owen County began the week with a match-up against the Lady Bulldogs from Male. The game was tight for three quarters.

  • Looking back at the year in high...

    Owen County once again enjoyed a successful year on the field of play. Whether it was a football field, a basketball court, a soccer pitch, a golf course, a baseball diamond or a cross-country course, the Rebels once again made their mark.
    Beginning in February both the boys’ and girls’ basketball teams reached 31st District championship games.
    For the third-straight season, the girls cut down the nets as they defeated Carroll County.
