  • Owen County girls soccer team...

    The Lady Rebels’ soccer team handed out its team awards for the 2008 season.

    Owen County Girls Soccer Head Coach Mike Haines said  he would have liked to have seen more wins but thought the season was a success.

    Haines said he did not lose a single minute of practice or playing time to academic eligibility issues.

  • Tough week for Rebels

    It was not the kind of week the Owen County Rebels had in mind.

    The week opened with the game at Gallatin County being snowed out followed by a pair of road games.

    The Rebels traveled to Henry County Thursday and then headed to Bourbon County to take part in the Kentucky Bank Shootout. In both cases, the Rebels lost.

    Thursday night’s game at New Castle came down to the final seconds. The Rebels had a one-point lead with 16 seconds to play but Henry County had one more possession.

  • Owen girls win opening game of...

    The week included a game being snowed out, another one going down to the wire and another ending with a victory.

    The Lady Rebels were scheduled to travel to Gallatin County early last week but the game was cancelled due to winter weather that came through the area.

    Friday, Owen County bused to Henry County to take on the Lady Wildcats.

    Henry County opened up the game by scoring the first five points.

  • Lady Rebels win district rematch

    The last time Owen County and Carroll County met in Owenton the 31st District Championship was on the line.

    That night, the Lady Rebels won the game 49-39 and cut down the nets.

    Nine months later, the Lady Panthers came back to town looking to get even.

    It looked for a while like the visitors were going to go home happy.

    The Lady Panthers jumped out to a 19-10 at the end of the first quarter. They extended the lead to 24-10 before the Lady Rebels began the comeback.

  • Bowling Middle School Girls take...

    The last time it happened was 2003. Some of the names on that team included Kelsey Wiliams and Kendall Cochran. On Dec. 6, the Bowling Middle School girls basketball team again captured the Eighth Grade Single “A” title.

    This year’s squad won the tourney by defeating Gallatin County 48-34 in the championship game. It was the third time this season the Lady Rebels defeated the Lady Wildcats.

    Bowling Middle School opened up the event with a bye in the first round before defeating Williamstown 40-24 in the second round.

  • Coaches honor Owen County soccer...

    The National Soccer Coaches Association of America has named the 2008 winners of the Team Academic Awards and once again the Owen County Rebels have made the list.

    The list includes only those teams with a minimum grade-point average of 3.25 for the entire academic year. For Coach Jerry Doolin, his team’s GPA was 3.30. Only four other boys teams qualified for the award. They were Danville, Owensboro, St. Xavier and Trinity. It is the 11th year in a row the Rebels have made the list.

  • A tale of two games

    As fun as the Dec. 9 game was for the Owen County Rebels, Thursday night was not.

    The Rebels opened up the week by hosting Trimble County and sent the Raiders home with a 74-40 defeat.

    On Thursday, Owen County welcomed Carroll County to Owenton and the Panthers walked out with a 54-44 victory.

    The student body turned out Dec. 9 in hard hats and watched their team give a workman-like effort in picking up the win. The Rebels led 13-9 at the end of one quarter and opened up the lead to 32-23 at the half.

  • Neeley breaks single-season...

    The Bowling Middle School eighth-grade girls hosted Carroll County Thursday night. The Lady Rebels rolled to a 52-16 win over the Lady Panthers.

    During the second half of the game, Hannah Neeley broke the single-season scoring record by scoring her 266th point on the year.

    Neeley breaks the previous record of 265 set by Rianna Gayheart.

    The eighth grader finished the game with 16 points to give her a total of 269 for the year.

    Neeley is not finished setting the record as BMS hosted Walton-Verona in the final game of the season.

  • Owen falls to Western Hills, but...

    The Owen County Rebels lifted the lid on the 2008-2009 season Dec. 9 in Owenton against Western Hills.

    Given the outcome, they may have wished for a do-over.

    The Wolverines got the best of the Rebels in a 64-56 win.

    Western Hills led 14-12 late in the first quarter before going on an 11-0 run to stretch the lead to 25-12 two minutes into the second quarter.

    The Rebels managed to keep the score close by going on a 7-0 run of their own to cut the deficit to 25-19.

    Western Hills righted the ship and maintained the lead at intermission.

  • Alice Lloyd’s...

    She is not someone you would want to challenge in a game of horse. Kaylan Richardson can shoot the ball from the outside,  and Nov. 24,  she proved it to the University of Cincinnati-Clermont.

    Richardson, a senior shooting guard for Alice Lloyd College, almost single-handedly beat the Cougars that night by connecting on nine 3-pointers,  scoring a game-high 29 points.

    The Lady Eagles won the game 77-58.

    Trailing 31-29 entering the second half, Richardson proceeded to make seven of her nine 3s, bringing her team back for the win.
