  • Rebels grab first district win...

    The Owen County High School baseball team did something last week they did not do all of last year.
    The Rebels knocked off the Wildcats of Henry County to pick up their first win in district play this season.
    Things did not get off to a great start April 25.
    Henry County scored three times in the top of the first inning.
    The score remained 3-0 until the bottom of the third when Stone Osborne belted a home run to right-center field to cut the deficit to 3-1. It was the fifth long ball of the season for Osborne.

  • Shooting stars

  • Foul weather disrupts youth...

    Due to bad weather, most of last week’s Owen Youth Soccer League games were postponed. Only one game was played.
    U-10 Mixed
    Green Machines vs.   Scott County Fire
    Taking the field on a cold, windy and wet Saturday morning, Owen County’s Green Machine, gave an extraordinary effort making great passes and forming a strong defense.  
    An outstanding player of the game was Ben Lilly, who played goalie for the first time.
    Lilly blocked more than five goal-attempts by the Fire.

  • Rebels track teams each grab...

    The Owen County track teams headed to Carrollton last week for the Carroll County All-Comers Meet. Both came home with third-place finishes.
    Kaylynn Workman had a big day for the Lady Rebels. She finished third in both the 100- and 300-meter hurdles and 10th in the 200-meter dash. Andi Wash also had a good day as she finished third in the 100-meter dash and second in the long jump. Haley Decandia finished second in the high jump.

  • Rebels down Demons

    The Owen County baseball team took the field twice last week. The Rebels lost to Carroll County before bouncing back and knocking off Williamstown.
    The Rebels began the week by taking on Carroll County in the Eighth Region All “A” Classic. The two teams met last year in the tournament with the Panthers winning, 11-7. This season was another slugfest, but the end result was the same as Carroll County won the game, 10-9.

  • Lady Rebels fall in finals

    When the Eighth Region All “A” Classic was held in January, it was assumed that Owen County would meet Walton-Verona in the championship game. A funny thing happened on the way to the finals, however, when the Lady Rebels lost to Williamstown in the semifinals.
    The two schools eventually squared off in the Eighth Region All “A” Classic Sunday at Gallatin County. It was not on the hardwood but on the softball diamond.
    Owen County began the tournament Friday with an easy 7-1 win over Carroll County.

  • That judo that you do so well

    On April 4 and 5, the West Michigan Sports Commission hosted the “2011 USA Judo Youth and Scholastic National Championship” and “Collegiate Open Championship” in Grand Rapids, Mich., at the DeVos Place.
    Approximately 400 competitors gathered from across the nation to compete in 100 different divisions.
    Owen County Judo Team members Robert Beverly, Chelsae Smith, and James Thompson competed in the “2011 USA Judo Youth and Scholastic National Championship” for athletes 19 and under.

  • On a winning streak

    Owen County’s Logan Harrod shows off the 2011 AAU State Championship trophy his team won in Lexington. Harrod plays for the Ville AAU team. This is the second year the team has been state champion. The team is currently 49-0 in the 10U division and has been champions of the Martin Luther King Classic, Gatorade Bluegrass Invitational, KBA Winter Hoopfest, FCA Hoops for Heaven and the Scott County Stampede. They will continue to play in the spring with their season culminating at the AAU National Tournament in July

  • Lady Rebels weather storm to win...

    The Owen County Lady Rebels took part in the “Where’s the Beach Classic” over the weekend in Rockcastle County. Maybe the event should have been named the “Where’s the Basement Classic?”
    After playing Friday night and losing 2-1 to Clay County in extra innings, the Lady Rebels were facing two more games Saturday. They did not know they would be taking on the weather as well.
