Lady Tigers defeat two 4A opponents last week

By Todd Bryant
This past week the Tigers had two games with non-conference opponents.  The 4A Dunnellon Tigers came to town on Tuesday to try to revenge a previous loss in Dunnellon.  Dunnellon started senior Cam Fagan on the mound.  Although Fagan normally plays shortstop (Virginia Tech commit) she is a hard throwing righty that is very competitive at whatever position she plays.  She was able to hold the Trenton hitters to 9 hits in 5 innings but she also gave up 8 walks. Keeli Zingaro was 3 for 3 with 3 runs and 4 RBIs.  She hit a solo home run in the first inning to put Trenton out front.  Hallie Bryant, Adrian Ingram and Tatum Duthu all had 2 hits each.  Ingram had a double and Bryant had two stolen bases and two runs scored.  Lillian Wilkerson had two walks offensively but made the defensive play of the night throwing out a base stealer at second by a couple of steps.  Darian Ingram started on the mound for Trenton and went all five innings.  She struck out 10, while only giving up 1 hit and 2 walks. Trenton scored in the first, third, and fifth innings and ended the game in 5 innings with the score 10-0.  Trenton improved to 7-0.
On Friday night the Tigers traveled to 4A Baker County to take on the Wildcats.  Baker County started a crafty, left hander on the mound and she did a good job holding the Tiger hitters in check.  Zingaro had another big night for the Tigers going 3 for 4 with a run and 2 RBIs.  She had a triple that drove in a run in the 5th inning as well as a 1st inning home run, her 4th of the year, that put the Tigers in the lead. Ellie Sessler added a double with an RBI and Zoey Maksimov had an RBI squeeze bunt. Trenton held the lead all night, but the Wildcat lefty scattered 8 hits and only walked one batter.  Darian Ingram threw well for the Tigers.  She pitched 7 innings with 12 strikeouts, 1 walk and 4 hits.  The Tigers won 4-1 and improved to 8-0.
This week the Tigers remained #1 in the 1A state polls and moved from #14 to #5 in the Max Preps national poll.  Trenton will host the Mayo Hornets, who are ranked #6 in 1A, on Tuesday.  Trenton will travel to Chiefland on Friday to play a conference game with the Indians.  Come out and support your Tigers.
