  • Lady Rebels earn split

    The two games played by the Owen County softball team last week could not have been any more different – one was a blowout win while the other was an extra-inning defeat.

    Haley DeCandia set new school record in the high jump. Her jump of 4-4 placed her fourth while Danielle Ransdell finished fifth.

    On April 27, the Rebels picked up a 7-0 win over Frankfort at Dunavent Field.

    The Rebels then traveled to Carrollton April 28 to take on the Panthers.

    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.
