Back after break

-A A +A

Rebel sports ready to get back into full swing

By Brian Blair

It sure did not feel like spring for much of last week. It was, however, spring break in Owen County and with the break came some rest from playing games for much of the week.

The softball team was off all last week and was not scheduled to return to action until Monday when they traveled to Henry County.

The girls also were scheduled to host Carroll County last night before hosting Gallatin County Wednesday night in a make-up game from an earlier rainout.

Owen County will then take on Henry County in the first round of the All “A” Classic in Owenton Friday night before hosting the semifinals and finals Saturday. Game times are 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. with the championship game at 2:30 p.m.

The Rebels’ baseball team played in the first round of the All “A” Classic Thursday night against Henry County.

The Wildcats got the best of the Rebels as they won the game 3-1. Carroll County eventually won the tournament by defeating Henry County in the championship game 12-0 in five innings.

Owen County returned to action Monday and Tuesday night at home as they took on Grant County and Gallatin County.

Owen County High School Baseball Coach Kevin Webster’s bunch will host Williamstown Thursday before heading off to Lexington to play Tates Creek Friday. The team will then play at Lexington Dunbar Saturday against Louisville Ballard and Dunbar.
