The Trenton Lady Bulldog softball team participated in a new event, a jamboree hosted by Brookfield High School, this past Saturday, August 24th.
Trenton found mixed results, falling to the defending Class 2 runner-up Brookfield Lady 'Dogs by a score of 3-1, but rebounding for a 3-0 shutout of Putnam County. Against Brookfield, Mallory Hooyman threw well for THS, giving up only two hits and striking out four, but Trenton's defense was costly, with Brookfield scoring two of their three runs by UN-EARNED status. Seniors Mikaila Capeder and Cassidy Cotton both had two hits for Trenton.
In the win over Putnam County, sophomore Daryian Otto shutdown the Lady Midgets offense, giving up only three hits while striking out three. Tosha Wilson had two of Trenton's hits.
Coach John Cowling told KTTN Sports Director Tom Johnson that his team "played well at times, but the two games identified things to work on". Coach Cowling says the jamboree will be helpful in "getting first game jitters out of the way".
Trenton opens the season on Wednesday at what should be a broiling-hot Johnson Field, hosting the Gallatin Lady Bulldogs. The 5 o'clock varsity game will be broadcast on KTTN FM 92.3 and www.kttn.com, with Tom Johnson on the play-by-play. Live video streaming will be available from CityLink-TV, via the link on www.kttn.com!
