Boyle wins first regional softball title
Boyle County won its first regional softball championship tonight, beating Mercer County 8-5 in the 12th Region Tournament final at Millennium Park.
The Lady Rebels’ third win over Mercer County this season gave them their first title in either fast-pitch or slow-pitch and a spot in next week’s state tournament in Owensboro.
Boyle will play the 8th Region champion — Walton-Verona and Oldham County will play for that title tonight in Buckner — on June 7 at Jack C. Fisher Park. First-round game times have not been set.
Win or lose, the Lady Rebels will play again the following day in the double-elimination tournament, which continues through June 9.
