Central Softball Heads To Springfield For State Semifinal Clash Against Defending Champs Skyline

(Park Hills) The Central Rebel softball team is heading to Springfield for the first time since 2018 and you can listen to the game on AM-800 KREI later Monday morning. The Rebels held a send-off party in Park Hills Sunday afternoon…

That’s senior Taylor Marler who, along with fellow senior Allie Kelly, were managers on the 2018 team that finished 2nd in Class 1. Now they’ll get the experience as players and the elder statesmen of a team that boasts six underclassmen in the starting lineup. Central has been balanced yet overpowering as of late. Seven players in the lineup are hitting over .300 on the season and a talented defense has helped the Rebels outscore opponents 43-6 over a four-game stretch when district play started.
