After falling to South Harrison on December 10th (in Bethany), the Trenton girls gained a measure of payback with a 61-53 win in the opener, as Makaila Capeder continued her strong and consistent play with a 17 point night for THS. Cassidy Cotton and McKinley Hurley both scored 14 points for Trenton, including a large number of clutch free throws, at Trenton moved to 14-5 on the season. The loss is only the second of the season for South Harrison. The first came in mid-December against Bishop LeBlond. Kaylee Smith had her typical strong scoring game for South Harrison, putting in 22 points, with Josie Williams, on the strength of four made three-point field goals, scoring 12. South Harrison is now 17-2 on the campaign.

The boys game proved to be one of the finest offensive showings of the season for Trenton, with the top-seeded Bulldogs controlling play in a 79-64 semifinal win over fourth-seeded South Harrison. Chris Flowers continued his superb January with a 20 point night, as Chase Tolson added 18, and Brice Dillon 10 points (all in the first half). South Harrison was strong offensively, but struggled to keep Trenton off the scoreboard, particularly in the fourth quarter. The "Bethany Bulldogs" had 30 points (23 in the second half) for Darin Williams. Corby Clark had 15 points before fouling out late in the game.

The Trenton girls, on Saturday night at 6 o'clock, will play Lathrop for the second time this season, after the Lady Mules rolled past Gallatin, 48-34 in Thursday night's semifinal round. Lathrop had 22 points from Katie Cordray and 15 from Isabel Maddick. Trenton and Lathrop played at NCMC's Holiday Hoops event on Saturday, January 3rd, with the Lady Mules claiming the overtime win.

The Trenton boys will play Gallatin in the Hamilton Tournament championship game (Saturday night at 7:30). Gallatin moved into the final with a 53-47 overtime win over the Braymer Bobcats. Jacob Boyd led the Bulldogs with 22 points, with Harris Cameron adding 11 to the winning cause. Braymer had 13 points from Jordan Miller and 11 from Hayden Leamer. The Gallatin-Trenton matchup will be the fourth of the season between the two "Bulldog rivals". Trenton won 2 of the first 3, beating Gallatin in the Gallatin Tournament and Lawson Tournament. Gallatin beat Trenton in regular season play on December 19th at GHS.
