Grace Terrell Grace Terrell Owen Valley’s varsity softball team fell 7-5 to the visiting Clay City Lady Eels on May 1st.

“I am very proud of the girls,” OV head coach Jamie Summerlot said after the game. “They played hard and never lost focus. Clay City is a very good team and our girls stayed with them. We did a good job hitting the ball. The absolute highlight was Gracie’s home run. She cranked that over center field, it was an amazing hit. I am very proud of her!”

Terrell finished with a double as well as the home run to lead the squad. Jennifer Morgan also recorded two hits, including a double. Also coming away with hits were Courtney Ooley, Zoey Bennington, Samaritan Lighter and Madison Summerlot.

The following night’s home game against South Vermillion was a complete turn-around for Owen Valley, losing to the Lady Wildcats 20-0.

“This was not a good night,” coach Summerlot commented. “First inning, South Vermillion lit up their bats and we just seemed off balance all night. We never could get it together.”

The Lady Patriots only recorded one hit on the night, a single by Kati Lowe. As a team, OV struck out four times and committed four errors.

Weather permitting, OV will be back in action Thursday, May 8 when they travel to Shakamak to take on the host Lady Lakers at 5:00 p.m.
