  • Rebels win one, lose one

    What started out as a promising week fell flat for the Owen County Rebels.

    The Rebels entered last week riding a four-game winning streak as they welcomed Gallatin County to town for a 31st District showdown.

    The game began with both teams running up and down the court at a frenetic pace. The Wildcats took a 19-17 lead after one quarter.

    The beginning of the second quarter was much the same until Blake Lewis connected from 3-point range to give the Rebels their first lead at 27-24 with 4:20 left in the half.

  • Owen County boys secure wins...

    Following a 2-1 week to open the season, the Owen County Rebels hit the road for a pair of important road games last week.

    After committing 33 turnovers in their opening night loss, senior Blake Lewis said the team has been “working on the little things” in practice.

    Lewis said after a week of playing against teams that seemed content to play zone defense against the Rebels’ strong inside game, it was going to be important for him and Stone Osborne to start knocking down shots.

Owen County then beat Henry County in the same gym in February to claim the 31st district championship.
