Sometimes life and sports intersect. That was the case last week for the Owen County softball team.
The Lady Rebels opened their season on Thursday in Frankfort amidst an emotional week for many of the Owen County players.
Following the death last Monday of classmate Ellie Stout, the team gathered on Wednesday night.
“It was really good to get most all of us in the dugout and just be together,” said head coach Greg Wilhoite. “It’s a tough time to be a coach and try to find the right words for them.”
