Tough start on the diamond

It was not the kind of start head coach Kevin Webster was hoping for.

The Owen County baseball season got under way last week for the Rebels. The team opened the season with a home game Anderson County. The Bearcats defeated the Rebels 14-0.

The Rebels then travelled to Woodford County over the weekend to play in the Lead-Off Classic. Owen County dropped a close one in the opener against Mercer County. Neither team had a problem scoring runs. In the end, however, it was the Titans who scored one more than the Rebels in their 12-11 win.

Unfortunately, the next two games were not quite as interesting for Owen County. Woodford County defeated the Rebels 11-1 and Waggener bested the Rebels 7-1.

Owen County will next be in action Thursday at Williamstown and Tuesday at Southern.
