  • Lady Bearcat foul proves pivotal...

    If the Lady Rebels’ game against Walton-Verona last Wednesday ended at the end of three quarters, the home crowd would have driven home happy. Unfortunately, high school basketball has four quarters.

    The game was tight in the first half as both teams held leads. Owen County’s Hannah Neeley scored in the final seconds to give what appeared to be a halftime lead of 22-20. The Lady Bearcats answered when they scored with less than a second left in the half to tie the score at intermission.

  • Overtime thriller

    Last year’s All “A” Classic ended in a split second for Owen County. It happened so fast that everyone involved stood in stunned silence as they watched Henry County storm the court. 

    This year, the Rebels had a little more time to think about it but the result was the same.

    The Gallatin County Wildcats advanced to the semifinals of the 8th Region All “A” Classic at Walton-Verona Monday night by defeating the Owen County Rebels, 59-53, in overtime.

  • Rebels pass regional test

    Ask any college student and they will tell you that exam week can be tough. It is a week with little rest and many tests. Now imagine having to take those tests after you lost two of your textbooks the night before.

    That might be how Owen County Head Coach Devin Duvall felt going into this week. The Rebels were going up against three tough regional opponents without two of the team’s top players.

  • Lady Rebels’ run ends...

    A year ago in Owenton, the Lady Rebels reached the semifinals of the All “A” Classic. They opened the tournament with a win over Trimble County before eventually losing to Carroll County. This year’s scenario was not that much different.

    After an opening-round win over Trimble County, the Lady Rebels again reached the semifinals. This year, instead of playing Carroll County, Walton-Verona was the  Lady Rebels’ opponent after they bested the Lady Panthers in the first round.

  • Rebels enjoy reversal of fortune

  • Lady Rebels avenge earlier losses

    The last time Owen County played Gallatin County and Henry County in the same week the results were not what the Lady Rebels had hoped for, dropping both games to their rivals.

    Last week, the game sites changed and so did the results.

    Owen County first traveled to Gallatin County Jan. 5. The Lady Rebels were looking for some revenge after Gallatin County defeated Owen County 54-50 in December. Freshman Hannah Neeley poured in 17 points to lead the Lady Rebels to a 51-36 win.
