  • Third-place finish for Trenary

    His teammates and coaches knew Hunter Trenary could run. On Saturday in Lexington, the rest of Class A Region 5 also found out.
    Trenary finished third at the regional meet with a time of 16:45.5. He finished 10 seconds out of second place and 27 seconds ahead of fourth place.
    Cory Hudnall also ran well and finished in 16th place. Along with the help of Logan Bitler, Evan Lozier and Alex Dietz, the Rebels finished in sixth places as a team.
    The meet was held at Lexington Christian Academy.

  • Turn it up to 11

    To say it has been a long time would be an understatement. The last time Owen County won a playoff game was during the Carter Administration.
    That changed Friday night at Patterson Field when the Rebels dispatched the Newport Wildcats, 38-13.
    Owen County continued its magical season with another dominating performance over an opponent. The Rebels used a stingy defense and a bruising rushing attack to send Newport into the offseason. The offense rushed for 226 yards, while allowing the Wildcats just 55 yards on the ground.

  • Power House Rebels move into...

    The following is an account of recent action in the North Central Kentucky Youth Football League:

    Midget Division
    Walton 19, Owen County 0 — The young Rebels played the Bearcats strong for most of the first half, but still found themselves down 13-0. Bailey Carrier had a fumble recovery for the Rebels. The Rebels’ defense played strong in the second half, however, the offense could never get on track. Carrier had his second fumble-recovery of the game.

  • Running strong

    Logan Btler, Alex Dietz and Evan Lozer recently took part in the Henry County Renaissance Run. These boys run both varsity and junior varsity squads. They ran JV for the Owen County cross country team at this run, and each one brought home a medal.

  • Hamilton, Ripy and Ball shine on...

    The Owen County Rebels finished another successful season on the links in 2011.
    The Rebels, coached by Kevin Webster, finished the season with a record of 11-4.
    The team — that featured a seventh-grader, eighth-grader, freshman, sophomore and junior — more than held its own against more experienced teams.
    One of those teams was a senior-dominated Walton-Verona team that finished just ahead of Owen County in both the All “A” Classic and NCKC Championship.
    Jarrod Ball was a medalist six times during the season.

    • Ludlow will come to Owenton with a record of 2-7 overall and 1-2 in the district.

    • The Owen County defense recorded the team’s first shutout of the season. Ironically, the last time Owen County shutout an opponent was Oct. 21, 2004, when they blanked Trimble County, 36-0.

  • Nine down, one to go

    It wasn’t their best effort, but don’t tell that to Gallatin County.
    Owen County continued its dream run through the 2011 season Friday in Warsaw by shutting out the Wildcats, 33-0, and improving to 9-0. The win also meant the team finished district play with a perfect 4-0 mark.
    Those who just looked at the final score might think the game was an easy one for Owen County. It was anything but.
    The Rebels faced their fair share of adversity last week leading up to the game.
