  • Rebel Ramblings

    • The win over Lloyd on Friday night improved Owen County Head Football Coach Adam Fowler’s record to 3-1 in season openers.
    • Grant County dropped its opener Saturday night. The Braves were defeated by Harrison County 38-14 in the Hometown Pharmacy Thorobred Bowl.
    • Owen County defeated Grant County 14-13 in Dry Ridge last season.

  • Rebels turn in opening-night...

    If expectations were high heading into the 2011 football season, then Friday night’s home opener did nothing but add to them.
    The reality of a new district and a seemingly easier schedule brought Owen County fans to Patterson Field Friday night hoping for big things from what looks to be a very talented team.
    The Rebels did not disappoint when they began the season with a convincing 28-13 win over the Lloyd Juggernauts. The win marked the second year in a row the team has begun the season with a win.

  • Rebels ready to roll

    Friday night is for real.
    After a successful dress rehearsal in Shelbyville, the Rebels are ready to start the regular season. Owen County defeated Shelby County, 20-7, in a scrimmage Friday night.
    Chris Day, Paul Banks and Sawyer Williams each scored in the win.
    Despite being a scrimmage, Owen County High School Head Football Coach Adam Fowler was especially excited about the win. Before coming to Owen County, Fowler coached at Shelby County.

  • Volleyball team starts off...

    The 2010 volleyball season was one for the record books at Owen County High School.
    The team won 19 matches, including the Eighth Region All “A” Classic. Still the season ended on somewhat of a down note when the Lady Rebels lost in the first round of the 32nd District Tournament.
    Getting off to a good start in 2011 was important. The team did that Thursday in Owenton when they hosted Eminence.
    Owen County defeated the visitors, 25-21 and 25-15, to pick up win No. 1 of the new season.

  • Lady Rebel golfers tee off...

    The Owen County High School girls’ golf team began its season Aug. 1. The team played in three events and performed well in each.
    The team began by teeing it up Aug. 1 at the Henry County Tournament. The girls finished second, behind one of the best teams in the state — Sacred Heart.
    Shelby Power led the way for the Lady Rebels by firing an 87. Kennedi Dermon shot an 88. Julie Spaulding and Lynsey Farrar each shot 90, while Ali Minch added a 94.

  • What did we really miss?

    The Cincinnati Bengals will take the field Friday night for their first preseason game. While one could argue whether it is good or not to have the Bengals back, it is good to have football back.
    The NFL ended its lockout a couple of weeks ago allowing the 2011 season to begin on time. I do not claim to be an expert on what the deal means or who ultimately won or lost. Honestly, I don’t care. I am sure I am not alone.

  • Famed NFL skills competition...

    Young pro football fans will have the opportunity to exhibit their football skills when the Rebels host an NFL Punt, Pass and Kick competition from 1 to 5 pm. Aug. 14.

    The NFL Punt, Pass and Kick football competition allows youngsters to showcase their talents in punting, passing, and kicking with scores based on distance and accuracy.

  • State offering bowhunting...

    Bowhunter education is not mandatory here, but it’s likely that more Kentuckians who hunt with archery equipment will want to take the course in the future.
    “Our focus is on offering more opportunities for certification,” said Bobby McKee, state bowhunting education coordinator for the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.

  • Beverly continues strong showing

    The 2011 Junior U.S. Open Judo Championship was held July 17 in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and the 2011 USA Judo Junior Olympic National Championship was held July 22 in Irving, Texas. Both events are points tournaments that determine national ranking for junior judo athletes.  
    More than 600 international competitors showed up in Fort Lauderdale for the Junior U.S. Open.
    Owen County Judo team member and high-school senior Robert Beverly placed third in the under-100 kg division.
