Rain shortens plans for All A Classic

Due to rain and wet fields, the All A Classic State Softball Tournament has been shortened.

What was to be a two-day event this weekend in Owensboro is now set to be completed on Saturday in a single-elimination bracket to the championship, and a consolation bracket.

The Lady Rockets (16-4) open at 11:30am with 16th Region champion Raceland (18-3). If the Crittenden County girls win that game, they will likely face defending All A champion and 16th-ranked Holy Cross (13-9) at 1:30pm.

If a team loses its first game of the day, it moves into a consolation bracket. Any team that loses in the winner's bracket is immediately eliminated.

Lady Rocket coach Stephen Smith said he'd never seen a bracket drawn up in such a fashion.
