  • Runnin’ Rebels chase...

    The Owen County Rebels were scheduled to make two trips to Grant County last week. The team was supposed to play both Williamstown and Grant County. Old Man Winter had other plans.

    Before the flakes began flying, the Rebels were able to get to Williamstown Feb. 2. They were glad they did, for they defeated the Demons, 62-46.

  • Owen County’s John...

    Most people think of playing pool as something they do in their spare time just for fun. For one Owen County resident, it has turned into something much more.

    John Brumback takes pool very seriously and it is paying off.

    Brumback went to the 12th Annual Derby City Classic at the Horseshoe Casino as the defending Bank 9-Ball Champion as well as the All-Around Champion.

  • Saints marching back with a...

    The New Orleans Saints marched into Miami as the underdog in Super Bowl XLIV. They marched out taking football’s biggest prize with them.

    I must admit, I was rooting for the Colts, but after watching the game on Sunday night how can you not root for the Saints?

    For the last few years, the most memorable images coming out of New Orleans have been ones of devastation and despair. People wondered how long and even if the city would be able to recover.

  • Up and down week for Lady Rebs

    The past week for the Owen County Lady Rebels was one of contrasts.

    The week began with a trip to South Oldham to play one of the better teams in the 8th region. The week ended with a home game against Williamstown, a team that is not as highly regarded.

    While the Lady Rebels dropped a 49-45 decision to the Lady Dragons, they played better in defeat than they did in a 34-28 win over the Lady Demons.

  • Rebels slam Warriors

    Several questions faced the Rebels as they entered play last week against Eminence.

    Would Owen County be able to get healthy after an eight-day layoff? How would the Rebels respond to an opening round loss to Gallatin County in the All “A” Classic?

    The answer to the first question can be answered with a resounding no.

    While senior Blake Lewis was able to get back on the floor against the Warriors Jan. 26, another senior was not quite as fortunate.

  • Rebels find themselves at...

    Saturday night, Jan. 24, 2009, is a date that most people in Owen County will not soon forget.

    On that night in Carrollton, Henry County defeated Owen County on a half court shot at the buzzer to propel themselves to Richmond and the All “A” Classic State Tournament.

    The picture of the team holding their runner-up trophy was one where the red eyes were not caused by the flash of the camera.

  • 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.
