  • Busy week for Lady Rebels...

    The Owen County softball team had a couple  of days early last week when the weather played havoc with their schedule. As a result, they got a little rest. They needed it because they finished the week with single games on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday before playing three more on Saturday.

  • Rebels pick up two more victories

    The Owen County baseball team is coming off a busy week. The team took on Gallatin County and Williamstown April 15 and 16 before heading off to Lexington to play three tough teams in Tates Creek, Paul Dunbar and Ballard Memorial.

    The Rebels got the week off to a good start by knocking off district rival Gallatin County.

    The weather was cold but the Rebels continued their hot play by winning their fourth game in five tries 4-3 over the Wildcats.

    The sun came out April 16 as the Rebels welcomed the Demons from Williamstown to Dunavent Field.

  • Owen teams having strong seasons...

    The 2009 track season has been a successful one for both the boys’ and girls’ teams.

    So far this year, the boys have set seven school records while the girls have set eight new ones. Both teams took part last week in a pair of events – Shelby County High School on Thursday night and Grant County High School Saturday.

    Both teams were at the Shelby County Invitational and both captured the team titles.

    The boys got a strong performance from Clayton Cook, who set a school record with his fourth-place finish in the 100-meter hurdles.

  • Owen County track team runs in...

     The Owen County track teams took part in a pair of meets last week.

    The first was at Walton before heading to Danville Friday for the All “A” Classic.

    At the Walton-Verona Tri Meet, the Rebels competed against both Grant County and Walton.

  • Softball team finds silver lining

    A stormy week that began with a severe thunderstorm ended with sunshine and a win for the Owen County Lady Rebels.

    Last week began with the team traveling to New Castle for a game with Henry County. Instead of playing softball, the two teams rode out a storm that included a funnel cloud that passed near the school. No damage was done and the team was able to return home safely.

    The next day, the team  saw another rainout as the game with Carroll County was postponed.

  • Owen football players raising...

    The game of football is largely an American sport. One would not think about playing the game in Australia. But for two Owen County High School students, that is exactly what they are going to get the chance to do.

    Keith Arutoff and Tyler Williams both are going to Australia to represent Kentucky in the Down Under Bowl. The game is the largest American Football Championship Tournament held outside the United States. The games have been played since 1989.

  • Back after break

    It sure did not feel like spring for much of last week. It was, however, spring break in Owen County and with the break came some rest from playing games for much of the week.

    The softball team was off all last week and was not scheduled to return to action until Monday when they traveled to Henry County.

    The girls also were scheduled to host Carroll County last night before hosting Gallatin County Wednesday night in a make-up game from an earlier rainout.

  • Owen County track teams continue...

    Spring break ended Saturday for the Owen County track team. The boys and girls were back in action at the Walton-Verona Bearcat Open.

    In the girls’ 100-meter dash, Melina Bress raced to a 10th-place finish while Evyn White finished 14th.

    The same two ran well in the 200-meter dash with White finishing 11th and Bress 15th.

    In the 400-meter dash it was Danielle Hoop who finished fifth. Rachel Dauwe placed 23rd.

    Hoop also ran well in the 800-meter run as she finished fifth and then placed second in the 1600-meter run.

  • Shamble success

    Satterwhite Shamble celebrated its 10th anniversary – “A Tradition Unlike Any Other.”

    If you watch the Masters, you’ll hear that catch phrase many times. There is a golf tournament  in Owen County that is also a unique tradition. The Charlie Satterwhite Golf Shamble celebrated its 10th anniversary Saturday at Fairway Golf Course in Wheatley. The event benefits the Charlie Satterwhite Fund and Trust for Life, which promote organ donation. Part of the proceeds from the event supports the Owen County Senior Citizens Center.

  • Rebels on a roll

    After a rough start to the 2009 campaign, Owen County High School Baseball Coach Kevin Webster has to feel better about his team.

    The Rebels headed into spring break riding a three-game winning streak. 

    Owen County began last week by traveling to Williamstown.

    The Demons scored single runs in the third and fifth and maintained the 2-0 advantage heading into the seventh inning.

    The Rebels rallied. Collin Gamble led off the inning with a single and was sacrificed to second by Denny O’Toole.
