Weather puts damper on softball schedule

The toughest opponent on last week’s softball schedule may have been the forecast.

The Lady Rebels were able to play Williamstown early last week.

Owen County jumped out on top of the Lady Demons in the top of the first inning. Kenzie Criswell singled and Samantha Toole walked before a double by Courtney Waldrop scored Criswell. A single by Jensen Wainscott then drove in Toole and Waldrop for an early 3-0 lead.

Owen County would add on another run in the second as Lauren Lowe singled to drive in Brittany Tuggle to make the score 4-0.

It would prove to be the only runs Katelyn Sutherland would need as she allowed Williamstown just two runs on four hits to pick up the win. She also struck out nine.

The team was scheduled to play Walton-Verona Thursday but the game was rained out.

Owen County was back in action Monday and Tuesday as they played at Frankfort and Grant County.     They will next be in action at home Monday and Tuesday as they host Frankfort and Williamstown.
