  • Cross Country competes in two...

    The Owen County cross county team took the course twice last week. The team competed at Carroll County before taking part in the Franklin County Invitational at the Kentucky Horse Park on Saturday.

    Eighth-grader Julie Spaulding finished fifth at General Butler State Resort Park in Carrollton. Amber Gover ran well for the Lady Rebels finishing 11th while Haley DeCandia captured 14th place. Megan Barnes finished 19th while Kelsey Johnson and Maggie Barnes finished 23rd and 24th respectively.

    The boys’ race saw Josh Alford finish 28th.

  • Rebels fall to Braves

    It started with a bang.

    Fans had not yet settled into their seats when Grant County kicked off to Owen County to begin Friday night’s game in Dry Ridge. Matt Harris took the kickoff and raced 80 yards to the end zone for a Rebels touchdown. According to Harris, “There was just a seam right up the middle and we busted it.” The extra point was blocked but after 15 seconds of action, Owen County had a 6-0 lead.

  • Big wins for boys’ golf

    They may be young, but the Owen County boys’ golf team continues to make strides on the golf course. The team improved its record to 7-6 on season with two wins last week.

    The first win came at Anderson County. The Rebels then returned to Fairway Golf Course on Wednesday night to take on Trimble County. The Raiders came into the match having lost just one match. They left Owen County with their second defeat.

    Jarrod Ball and Zach Ripy each shot 39 to lead Owen County. Colton New eagled the final hole on his round to shoot a 41.

  • MBMS remains undefeated

    It was another night and another easy win for the Bowling Middle School football team. The Rebels defeated Frankfort 48-2 last week to run their record to 5-0 on the season.

    Bowling Middle scored in all facets of the game. The Rebels scored touchdowns on offense, defense and special teams.

  • Lady Rebels Soccer notches win

    To say Devin Jouett is playing well would be a bit of an understatement. In the last five games, she has nine goals. Her last four goals came in a 5-0 win over Ludlow last week. Jerusha Toole scored the other Lady Rebels’ goal in the win.

    The win also saw Owen County produce a fine defensive effort. Coach Mike Haines credited the defensive line of Evyn White, Ciara McDaniel and Christina Johnson for playing a good game. Haines also complimented the defensive play of Mary Kennedy and Rachel Herring.

  • Wildcats Defeat Rebels

    Sports are a funny thing. One week you can feel the highs of winning only to feel the lows of losing the next. Following the victory of the first game, Friday night produced more lows than highs for Adam Fowler and the rest of the Owen County football team as the Rebels dropped a 27-6 decision to Gallatin County at Patterson Field.

  • Boys Golf preparing for NCKC/All...

    They are young, but they continue to improve every time they play. Led by a seventh-grader and an eighth-grader, the Owen County Rebels are off to a good start on the 2008 season. The team played a pair of matches last week, earning a split. The week began with a match against Carroll County. The Rebels proved too much for the Panthers as they won the match. Seventh-grader Jarrod Ball shot a 39 while eighth-grader Zach Ripy posted a 41. Thursday saw Walton-Verona come to Fairway Golf Course for a match.

  • Fowler earns first win for Rebel...

    So much for the victory celebration Bishop Brossart had planned.

    The Owen County football team ruined any hopes the Mustangs had of getting their first ever varsity win on Friday night. Instead, they gave head coach Adam Fowler his first win as a varsity head coach by beating the second-year program 18-6 at Newport High School.

    When asked if it was nice to get the monkey off his back in week one, Fowler said, “It really is. All the pressure is gone.”

  • Kickers capture Owen Invitational

    It is said that defense wins championships. For the Owen County boy’s soccer team it was a pair of shutouts that led to winning the Owen County Invitational on Saturday. The Rebels defeated Spencer County and Walton-Verona to claim the title. The week began with a pair of tough defeats to Sayre and Frankfort. Owen County lost in a shootout to Sayre and dropped a 2-0 decision to Frankfort. The Rebels opened up play on Saturday morning against Spencer County; and Billy Patton opened up the scoring early in the first half to give the Rebels a 1-0 lead.

  • Practice makes perfect

    The beginning of August can mean only two things. School is about ready to begin and so are the fall sports at Owen County High School. Practice has been under way at the school for over two weeks as each team gets ready for the upcoming season. The football team will be under the direction of a new head coach, Adam Fowler. The Rebels and their new coach will be looking to improve on a 2007 campaign, which saw them win just one game. The team will kick off the season on Aug. 29 against Bishop Brossart in Alexandria. The boys and girls’ soccer teams will begin their season on Aug.
