  • Lady Rebels take care of two...

    So far this season the Owen County Lady Rebels have gotten very little resistance from 31st district opposition. Last week would be no exception although one would make it a little more interesting.
    The girls traveled to take on Gallatin County and Henry County.
    Like the Owen County boys, the Lady Rebels entered the week following a loss and were looking to get back on a roll.
    They would do just that.

  • Playing Perfect

    This year’s 31st district tournament is in Owenton. The Rebels would like nothing more than to be the #1 seed when the tournament begins.
    Owen County moved two steps closer to its goal last week as they took on a pair of 31st district opponents. Both were road games and as it turned out both wins.
    The week began with a trip to Warsaw to take on Gallatin County Jan. 2.

  • 2011: Just about perfect

    When people look back at 2011 in Owen County sports history there will be one word that comes to mind – perfect.
    The year began with the Owen County High School Lady Rebels winning their fourth-straight 31st District championship.
    The win over Gallatin County propelled the team into the Eighth Region Tournament where they knocked off Simon Kenton in the opening round before falling to Anderson County in the semifinals.

  • How will sports fans remember...

    What will be the lasting legacy of 2011 when it comes to sports?
    Many great things happened this past year that will long be remembered.
    The Green Bay Packers brought the Lombardi Trophy back to Title Town. The Packers fine quarterback Aaron Rodgers made everyone in Wisconsin say “Brett who” as he led the Pack over the Steelers in the Super Bowl.
    Auburn and Cam Newton took the college football world by storm and defeated Oregon to claim the BCS National Championship.

  • Gayheart sets new scoring mark

    Rianna Gayheart rang in the new year by setting a new record.
    Against Paducah Tilghman, the senior scored her 1,588th point to become the school’s all-time leading score. She broke the mark previously held by Katie Smith.
    A grateful Gayheart said she is honored to hold such a significant record.
    “It’s an honor to be among some of the elite players in the school’s history,” Gayheart said.

  • Rebels drop three straight over...

    The Owen County Rebels are hoping the beginning of 2012 will be better than the end of 2011.
    The team spent some of their holiday break at the Gateway Holiday Tournament at Montgomery County.
    The Rebels began the week Dec, 28 by taking on the host Indians. Montgomery County is considered one of the top teams in the 10th Region.

  • No growing pains

    Many kids play basketball but not all of them are basketball players.
    The Maurice Bowling Middle School eighth-grade Rebels are basketball players and they are good.
    The team finished the season with a perfect record and it is not the first time. In fact, the team that has been playing together since they were in the third grade was also perfect last year as seventh graders.
    In fact, the last time they lost a regular season game was in the fourth grade.

  • Perfect ladies

    It’s hard to find much wrong with the Owen County High School Lady Rebels at this point in the season.
    They are 7-0 and have won those games by an average margin of 33 points. That is why when they win by just 18 points against a district rival, it seems strange.
    Owen County defeated Henry County 45-27 Friday night in Owenton but when the game ended everyone seemed a little flat.
    After jumping out to an early lead in the first quarter, the Lady Wildcats were able to get back into the game and close the gap to 11-10 in the second quarter.

  • Rebels rout rivals

    Rebels rout rivals
    Things didn’t get off to a good start last week.
    During the Owen County High School Rebels’ final practice last Monday before taking on Gallatin County, big man Sawyer Williams was injured.
    To make matters worse, during the junior varsity game Dec. 13,  Collin Trammel was injured.
    That is when the Runnin’ Rebels became the resilient Rebels.

  • Rebels roll to pair of wins

    It was another winning week for Owen County.
    The Owen County High School Rebels picked up two wins last week as they beat Trimble County and Carroll County on the road.
    Owen County opened the week with a dominating 43-20 win at Trimble County. Stone Osborne nearly outscored the Raiders by himself as he tossed in 18 points. The senior also grabbed seven rebounds and dished out a pair of assists.
