    It was a second-place finish for the Owen County Boys’ Golf Team last week at the All “A” Classic.

    The second-place finish was another strong showing for the young team who earlier this season finished second at the NCKC Tournament at Fairway Golf Course.

    Jarrod Ball and Zach Ripy each shot 80 to make the All-Tournament Team.

    Both players missed making the state tournament by a single shot.

    For the Owen County Rebels and their fans, this one must have hurt.

    Owen County dug itself a hole for the first three-and-a-half quarters of Saturday night’s game with Grant County. The Rebels spent the final six minutes of the game digging out.

    Just as it appeared the game was headed to overtime, disaster struck.

    The Rebels were their own worst enemy in the first half. Turnovers and penalties stymied drives.
