Lady Rebels pick up district win

-A A +A

The Owen County softball team earned their first district win of the season last week.
After dropping their 31st District opener at Carroll County earlier this season, the Lady Rebels defeated Gallatin County 9-1 last week in Owenton. It was the fifth straight win over the Lady Wildcats.
The good feelings did not last as the team travelled to Trimble County on Wednesday evening. After a thrilling 5-4 win over the Lady Raiders in the 8th Region All ‘A’ Classic, the Lady Rebels would drop a 6-3 decision in Bedford. They would follow that up with a tough 1-0 defeat at Grant County on Thursday night. It was the second time this season the team has failed to score a run. The loss snapped a four-game winning streak against the Lady Braves.
The Lady Rebels will be looking for another district win tonight when they take on Eminence. They will host Simon Kenton on Thursday before traveling to Collins on Monday night. They will be right back in Owenton on Tuesday when they play Walton-Verona.
