Casper Rebels ready for scrimmages

CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) The Casper Softball Association also known as the Casper Rebels had their first glance of competition on June 6.

After getting the green light to start practices, the Casper Rebels were given the green light to start games.

"It was nice to see everyone, it was weird not being able to see everyone back on the field, it was kind of weird knowing that we couldn't do anything because of quarantine but being with the girls that love the same sport as me, it is kind of nice and it was great to be back," said 16U Casper Rebels player Allison Boroz.

Last month they teams were able to start practices with staggered start times but just recently found out they would be able to start live competition.

"For right now it is probably just, some Wyoming teams, we may have a few tournaments in Montana sometime soon, but for right now it is just Wyoming teams until we can figure out what is going to happen," said Boroz.

Right now the girls are practicing about four times a week.

"Since we have scrimmages coming up we have been trying to get as many practices in as we can before the big day," said Boroz.

For most of these girls who love the game, they are excited to be out on the field.

"I have been playing softball for most of my life, started with tee ball the moved up to rec, then about fourth or fifth grade moved up to travel and kind of haven't stopped since," said Boroz.

The Casper Rebels have ages 8U to 16U as well as rec and travel teams.
