  • 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.

    Kickoff: 7:30 p.m.

     

    Carroll County lost its district opener Friday night at Christian Academy-Louisville. The Centurions (4-3) defeated the Panthers (5-2), 69-12.

    A year ago in Owenton, the Rebels defeated the Panthers 27-6. Joey Wood scored twice as Owen County defeated Carroll County for the first time since 2002.

    During the first six games of the season, the Panthers allowed a total of 63 points. On Friday night against CAL, they allowed 69 points.

  • 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.

  • Rebels fall in district opener

    Owen County knew Friday night’s game with DeSales was not going to be easy.

    The Colts came into Owenton having owned the district over the last three years. In fact, since the districts were realigned in 2007, DeSales has not lost a game against district opposition.

  • Jilted in The Jungle

    The football stadium at East Jessamine is called The Jungle. On Friday night in Nicholasville, the Jaguars seemed to be lying in wait for the arrival of the Owen County Rebels.

    East Jessamine jumped in front early and never looked back as they defeated Owen County 49-0. The loss dropped the Rebels to 3-3 on the season.

    East Jessamine junior Cameron Thomas ran the ball only 11 times Friday night and made the most of his opportunities. Four times in the first half, he took the handoff and went the distance. Thomas finished the night with 201-yards rushing.
