BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WBKO) -- --Sunday afternoon Greenwood head softball coach Penny Reece released this statement to WBKO.
"My suspension is for one week only (through the district tournament). I would appreciate the media not bringing any unnecessary negativity to me or my team during this time. My 27 year coaching resume is a testament to my character and integrity. I hope my team can rally together despite this unfortunate distraction and I look forward to coaching them in the regional tournament."
Reece is still allowed to teach during the suspension.
Laura Smith will act as head coach in Reece's absence. The reason for the suspension has not been made clear, it's against the warren county school distirct to discuss personal issues.
District play starts Tuesday for the defending state champs and right now they will play the winner of Bowling Green and Warren Central without their legendary coach.
