  • Lady Rebels rally for victory over Lady Braves

    The Owen County Lady Rebels were in need of some positive momentum on Friday night as they hosted Grant County in the regular season finale.

    A 56-31 win over the Lady Braves was just what they needed.

    Earlier this season the team traveled to Dry Ridge where they were looking to snap a five-game losing streak. They did so with a 64-58 win. The return engagement would not be as close as the Lady Rebels jumped to an 8-0 lead and never let off the gas pedal in rolling to the easy win. This time around the victory stopped a three-game losing streak.

  • Senior Night victory: Rebels roll past Oldham

    The Owen County Rebels saved their best for last Thursday night in Owenton.

    Head coach Devin Duvall summed it up best, “It was the best crowd we’ve ever had, the best ceremony we’ve ever had and the best team we’ve ever had.”

    Fans showed up early for a game that featured the two top teams in the Eighth Region in Owen County and Oldham County. Before the game tipped off fans had their chance to pay tribute to five seniors who have taken the program to heights it has never been before.

  • Lady Rebels continue search for a victory

    The Owen County Lady Rebels are in need of some positive momentum as the regular season draws to a close. After a pair of losses last week the team has now dropped three in a row.

  • Rebels break tie in last minute to defeat South Oldham

    It is not always about how many shots you make but when you make them.

    Owen County’s Chad McDonald was not enjoying a good shooting night against South Oldham Saturday night. Still, in the game’s final moments the senior wanted the ball.

    With the game tied at 73-73 and less than a minute to play the Rebels called timeout to set up a play. Knowing the Dragons were going to double team Carson Williams who already had scored 40 points, McDonald told head coach Devin Duvall that he was ready.

  • Lady Rebels win one, lose one in games last week

    The Owen County Lady Rebels played a pair of games last week. In both cases, the outcomes of each were determined by the second half.

    The team hosted Lexington Christian on Monday night. The first half was closely contested with Owen County holding a 29-25 lead over the Lady Eagles at halftime. The second half was a much different story as the Lady Rebels grabbed the momentum and ran with it. They outscored Lexington Christian 38-32 and won 67-47.


    The Owen County Rebels headed to Frankfort on Thursday with high expectations. Students and faculty lined the road wishing the team luck as they headed out of town. The return trip on Saturday night was not as jubilant.

    Murray’s James Boone took only one 3-point shot on Saturday night during the semifinals of the Kentucky All “A” Classic. It was a big one. As the shot fell through the net the Tigers rushed onto the floor in celebration and the Rebels were left wondering what had just happened.

  • Williams scores 2,500th point in Rebels win against Carroll Co.

    There was not much drama in Tuesday night’s home game with Carroll County. Owen County won its 22nd straight 31st District contest 77-29 over the Panthers. A highlight, however, came when senior Carson Williams reached another milestone in his career. Williams, who is the all-time leading scorer in Owen County history, scored his 2,500th point.

    Much like the weather outside, Owen County started off cold from the field in the first half. Carroll County was also unable to get things going offensively leading to an 18-18 tie at halftime.

    The second half was a different story. Owen County would outscore Carroll County 43-16 during the final two quarters on their way to a 61-34 victory.
