    Rebel Ramblings

    • Ludlow will come to Owenton with a record of 2-7 overall and 1-2 in the district.
    • The Panthers are coached by Rick Hornsby, who is in his fourth season as head coach. After winning five games in his first two years, Hornsby is looking to avoid a second straight two-win campaign.
    • The Owen County defense recorded the team’s first shutout of the season. Ironically, the last time Owen County shutout an opponent was Oct. 21, 2004, when they blanked Trimble County, 36-0.

  • Nine down, one to go

    It wasn’t their best effort, but don’t tell that to Gallatin County.

    Those who just looked at the final score might think the game was an easy one for Owen County. It was anything but.

  • Trenary conquers conference...

    The 2011 cross country season has been good for one Owen County runner.

  • Learning experience

    They may have missed the cut but they gained valuable experience.
    The Owen County Lady Rebels played in the state golf tournament Friday in Bowling Green.
    Although none of the five Owen County players made the cut, the experience was quite valuable, according to their coach.
    “This was definitely a boost to our program, because we made it to State with three juniors, one sophomore and one freshman,” said head coach David Wainscott.

  • Undefeated MBMS Rebels ready to...

    While one Rebel football team is 7-0 and preparing for homecoming, another is undefeated and getting ready for the playoffs.
