  • Lady Rebels softball team blanks...

    While many of their classmates were playing on the sand of the beach last week, the Owen County softball team was playing in the dirt at Carroll County and Grant County.

    The Lady Rebels travelled to Carrollton April 6 when they took on the Carroll County Lady Panthers.

    Owen County scored runs in the first three innings and another in the seventh to record the 5-0 win.

  • Freshmen take title

    The Owen County Freshman softball team has gotten off to a good start in 2010. The team recently won a freshman tournament at Grant County. The Lady Rebels went 2-1 in the three games they played to bring home the trophy. Owen County defeated Anderson County in the opener behind the pitching of Katelyn Sutherland. The Lady Rebels then dropped a close game to Trimble County in their second contest.

  • Rebels grab first win of the...

    The Owen County High School baseball team entered last week in search of its first win.

    By week’s end, they had it.

    Owen County began the week March 29 with a road trip up I-71 to take on Walton-Verona.

    The Bearcats and Rebels played a tight game but in the end it was the home team Bearcats who came away with the 7-6 win.

    The team then returned home Wednesday afternoon for a game with Simon Kenton.

  • Lady Rebels take out frustration...

    A week that began with two close losses ended with a blowout win for the Owen County softball team.

    The Lady Rebels began last week by hosting a pair of district rivals in Henry County and Gallatin County. Both games ended with disappointing losses.

    Owen County was scheduled to host Simon Kenton last week, but the game was rained out meaning the home opener was the next night against Henry County. The teams played a scoreless game until the fifth inning when the Lady Wildcats got to Katelyn Sutherland and put three runs on the board.

  • Owen track team is off and...

    The Owen County track team opened up its season last week. The week began at Shelby County and wrapped up at Western Hills on Saturday.

    Both the boys and the girls had some good performances.

    In the girls’ meet at Shelby County, Rachel Dauwe finished 11th in the 100 Meter Hurdles. Haley Decandia finished 13th and Kelsey Johnson finished 14th. In the 300 Meter Hurdles, Dauwe finished ninth while Kalynn Workman finished in 12th place. In the 800 Meter Run it was Danielle Hoop who ran to a second-place finish.

  • Lady Wildcats walk-off with win...

    Jensen Wainscott had three hits and scored three runs. Kenzie Criswell had a pair of hits and knocked in three runs. In the end, however, a late comeback was not enough as the Owen County lost its opener against Gallatin County last week.

    After the Lady Rebels rallied for three runs in the top of the seventh inning to tie the game, the Lady Wildcats pushed across a run in the bottom half to win the game 7-6.

  • Tough start on the diamond

    It was not the kind of start head coach Kevin Webster was hoping for.

    The Owen County baseball season got under way last week for the Rebels. The team opened the season with a home game Anderson County. The Bearcats defeated the Rebels 14-0.

    The Rebels then travelled to Woodford County over the weekend to play in the Lead-Off Classic. Owen County dropped a close one in the opener against Mercer County. Neither team had a problem scoring runs. In the end, however, it was the Titans who scored one more than the Rebels in their 12-11 win.

  • Basketball team brings home title

    The Owen County Boys’ Sixth Grade Basketball Team  won the NCKC Youth League Championship Tournament Feb. 27 at Henry County High School. 

    The team entered the tournament as the No. 1 seed after going undefeated in the regular season.  They coasted to a first-round victory over Williamstown and then took on rival Walton-Verona in the championship game.

  • Judo team takes top honors

    On March 20, The Owen County Judo Invitational had another amazing turnout of competitors, and fans alike. There were 142 competitors. Seventeen teams came to Kentucky from all across Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, and Tennessee.

    Owen County Judo Team won first place with 68 points, San Sedai Judo Team of Trimble County took second place with 46 points, and Bowling Green Judo placed third with 41 points overall.

  • Softball opener delayed

    If the weather would have cooperated, the Lady Rebels would have begun their season Monday at Western Hills but rain forced the cancelation of the season opener.

    Owen County finished the 2009 season with a 12-14 overall record. The team played in the 31st district championship game where they fell to Henry County. They then advanced to the 8th region tournament where they dropped their opener to Oldham County.

    The Lady Rebels return their four leading hitters from last season as well as their top pitcher.
