    The Rebels then traveled to Carrollton April 28 to take on the Panthers.

  • Busy week for Lady Rebels...

  • 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.

    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.
