  • 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.

  • Baseball is almost back

    The Owen County Rebels are back on the diamond ... almost.

    The Rebels were scheduled to open up the 2010 season Monday night at Harrison County before returning home to host Anderson County. Rain cancelled the game against Harrison County.

    Owen County finished 2009 with a 12-16 record. The team did have a 7-5 record at home.

    Owen County Head Baseball Coach Kevin Webster will have to replace six seniors from last year’s squad.

  • Post-season honors
  • A second chance at one shining...

    There have been some colossal mistakes throughout history – the British wearing bright red coats during the Revolutionary War; the captain of the Titanic giving the order for full-speed ahead; and Rick Pitino not guarding the inbounds pass against Duke with 2.1 seconds left.

    Another major blunder took place last Sunday night when yours truly put pen to paper for the 2010 NCAA Tournament bracket and then decided to make my picks public by putting them in the newspaper.

  • Teams wrap up strong seasons

    The 2009-2010 basketball season has come to and end. Both the boys and the girls again had a successful year.

    The Lady Rebels finished the season with a record of 17-10 and captured their third straight 31st District Championship.

    Overall, it was the fifth-straight appearance for Owen County in the championship game. It was also the fourth year in a row Owen County Head Girls Basketball Coach Robert Osborne’s team won 15 games or more. The Lady Rebels had a six-game winning streak starting Dec. 29 and running through Jan. 13.
