HQ1B1853The Meadows Standardbred Owners Association hosted a group of professional athletes for a special event on Wednesday (July 1), as players from the Pennsylvania Rebellion spent a day at the track.

The Rebellion is a Washington, PA-based women’s softball team that competes in the National Professional Fastpitch (NPF) league.

Players enjoyed a morning on the backstretch, getting private barn tours and jog cart rides, courtesy of the MSOA.

After a luncheon in the casino, three team members, Kristyn Sandberg, Maddie O’Brien and Dallas Escobedo, joined Meadows Live host Roger Huston for a segment on the track’s television broadcast.

Following the day’s third race, four members of the Rebellion participated in a special match race, paired with Meadows drivers Nikki Harvey, Leslie Zendt, Janet Irvine and Sharon Donella in two-seat jog carts.  The entire team then visited the winners circle for a group photo.

The Rebellion then broke into four groups for a handicapping and wagering contest, with prizes awarded to the winners.

The Rebellion players will now prepare for a five-game road trip before returning home to CONSOL Energy Park for an eight-game homestand beginning Friday, July 10. The team’s season runs through mid-August.
