  • Hoop and Spaulding to run at...

    Before the gun sounded to begin Saturday’s Region 5A Cross County Meet, Danielle Hoop thought her biggest competition would come from Danville’s Kaitlin Snapp.

    The two have battled each other for the last couple of seasons at the regional meet.

    In the latest rankings, Snapp was ranked first in the Class A while Hoop was ranked second.

    At Trimble County Park Saturday, Hoop beat Snapp to the finish line. The only problem was that neither one was thinking about a seventh-grader from Sayre.

  • Indians prove too much for Rebels

    Heading into Friday night’s first-round playoff game versus Holy Cross, Owen County knew the person they had to stop in order to have a chance at coming away with the victory. As it turned out, stopping Markel Walker was something the Rebels could not do.

    Walker had a hand in all five of the Indians’ first-half touchdowns to give Holy Cross a 34-3 lead at halftime. They never looked back.

    • The Indians finished the season 5-5 overall and 2-1 in the District 6. They defeated Newport and Lloyd and lost to Newport Central Catholic.

  • Rebel tricks don’t pay...

    Oh, so close.

    That was the feeling of Owen County High School Head  Football Coach Adam Fowler,  and just about anyone else who watched the final home game of the season Friday night.

    South Oldham defeated Owen County 21-14 on Senior Night. Three big plays for the Dragons and two costly turnovers for the Rebels were the difference in the game.

    The visitors got on the board first when Christian Wallace hooked up with Cody Kollenberg for a 34-yard touchdown pass late in the first quarter. Following the extra point, the Dragons led 7-0.

  • Rebel athletes also find success...

    As a soccer player you are often required to use your head. For the soccer teams at Owen County High School, they can use their heads both on and off the field.

    The boys under the direction of Jerry Doolin have once again been recognized for academic success by the Kentucky High School Soccer Coaches Association. The team, along with seven other schools across the state, was honored for having a team grade point average of 3.25 or better.

  • Centurians slide past rebels

    It was a difficult week for the Owen County Rebels. While the school system was being hit hard by the H1N1 virus, the football team was no exception.

    On Friday before the Rebels set off for the game at Christian Academy of Louisville, Owen County Head Football Coach Adam Fowler said the sickness had taken its toll on the team.

    “The most we had in practice all week was 31 out of a 50-man roster,” Fowler said.

    On top of the sickness, the team also lost two players for the season.

  • Owen County Youth Rebels...

    The Owen County Youth football teams traveled to Walton last weekend to battle the Bearcats in the last games of the regular season. Both the Mighty Pro and Power House teams came away with victories. The wins left both teams undefeated in the regular season and gave them the No. 1 seed in the upcoming playoffs.

    • It has been a streaky season for South Oldham in 2009. Each of the Dragons two wins this season came after a three-game losing streak. The last win came Oct. 9 at home against Grant County.

  • Squad ends exciting season

    They may not have won the match Oct. 13 but the night showed just how far the program has come.

    The Lady Rebels entered the 30th District semifinal match against Williamstown with nothing to lose. The team had already accomplished something by just being in the game. The appearance meant the Lady Rebels had won their opening round match with Gallatin County. It was their first ever win in the district tournament.
