Pam Sowell, mother of Oldham County High School softball player DeLaney Sowell, passed away in her sleep while on the team's spring break trip in Florida last Thursday. 

Sowell was the team's booster representative and managed concessions over the past four years. Her husband, JM Sowell, is an assistant coach for the Lady Colonels.

"It's a tragic loss for the Sowell family," Oldham County coach Steve Leanhart said. "Pam was an amazing woman who represented her family in the best way possible."

Leanhart encourages the community to help the family bring their loved one home.

A GoFund Me page has been created in support of the family. Proceeds will go toward funeral costs and expenses as the family tries to bring her back to Oldham County.
