  • Big week on the diamond

    Excitement was not lacking when it came to Owen County softball last week.

    The Lady Rebels played six games that included a win in their final at bat, a come-from-behind victory in the next game, and another win that had been a long time coming. That was all before the weekend.

    The weekend began with a rain-out Friday night; a win Saturday morning followed by a bus ride; another win; and an exciting 8th Region All “A” Championship game that saw a comeback fall one run short.

    No one would blame anyone involved for being a little out of breath.

  • Rebels knock off Demons

    When they met on April Fool’s Day in Williamstown it was the Demons who defeated the Rebels 7-3.

    The two teams squared off again on Tax Day – April 15 – in Owenton. This time it was the Rebels who were pleased with their returns.

    Owen County took an early lead and then held on to pick up the 4-2 win. It was the Rebels’ third-straight win at Dunavent Field.

    The team is 3-1 at home this year. The loss was just the third Williamstown has suffered on the season.

  • Track team turns in strong...

    The Owen County High School track team competed last week at the Grant County All-Comers meet in Crittenden. Several members of the team performed well.

    Top performers on the girls’ side included Danielle Hoop finishing first in the 400-meter dash and fourth in both the 800- and 1600-meter. Haley Decandia ran to a 10th-place finish in the 100-meter hurdles and earned a sixth-place finish in the high jump. Kelsey Johnson finished 11th in the 100-meter hurdles and the discus while Kystal Webster placed ninth in the shot put.

  • Another Rebel to play college...

    Owen County High School Head Football Coach Adam Fowler recently had the privilege to watch another one of his players sign to play football at the next level.

    Daniel Dauwe and his family joined members of the coaching staff in the Owen County High School Library to sign with the University of the Cumberlands.

    Last year, the Patriots finished 9-2 and captured the Mid-South Conference East Division title for the third-straight season. They finished the year ranked No. 10 in the NAIA.

  • Rebels running and jumping in...

    The Owen County track team spent its Saturday in Walton-Verona at the Bearcat Open.

    The top performer for the girls was Haley Decandia who won the high jump with a jump of 4 feet and 10 inches.

    The boys’ best showing of the day came from both Daniel Cummins and Dillon Mears who finished third and fourth in the discus.

    In other girls’ events, Kristiana Johnson finished 18th and Shelby Ogden 27th in the 100-meter dash. The pair then finished 20th and 24th in the 200-meter dash.

  • 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.
