The varsity softball team is known to be one of the most successful sports programs at Trinity.  With the new season beginning, the girls are eager to dominate in all parts of the sport.

Winter workouts started on January 7, so it’s safe to say that the team is more than ready for their annual spring trip this year.  They left on March 27 to travel all the way to Tampa, Florida.

Coach Daloia expressed, “The spring trip is one of the reasons for the success that the Trinity Hillers have had over the years.  It is a great bonding experience for the players, and it allows the team to practice and play multiple games outside in the warm weather before returning home to start section play.  It definitely gives the team an advantage and a great start to the season.”

Not only do the girls get to perfect technique and learn new skills  but also make unforgettable memories.

“My favorite memory in high school softball has to be my sophomore spring trip to Cocoa Beach, Florida, when we silly stringed our coach and made him go on a scavenger hunt in order to find his clothes that we scattered throughout the resort,” voiced Senior Cameron Meier.

This trip provides an obvious positive impact on the team and their skills.  Seniors Meier, Sloan Altman, Bailey Bell, Skylar Hutchins and Nicole Piatt are examples of how success is evident on the team.  Bell will continue her career at Dominican College and Meier at Point Park University. Even though there is much excitement for their future years, they still want to make their senior year count.

Meier states, “We hope to win our section, we have a really good shot of doing so, and ultimately win States.”

Last season, the team was knocked out of playoffs in quarterfinals by West Allegheny in extra innings, so they are looking for revenge this year.  

Daloia voiced, “With eight returning starters, our goal is to win the Section this year and to return to the playoffs as one of the top seeds.  With the senior leadership we have, including Bell, Piatt, Meier, Altman and Hutchins, we plan on being a very competitive team in our section. Senior outfielder, Bell, and Junior Shortstop, Marlaina Bozek, are listed as ‘The top players to watch in the WPIAL’ this year, and our underclassmen, lead by a very talented sophomore class, including Emma Morgan, Kylie Poland, Bayleigh McCullough, and Emily and Kaylin Venick make us a well rounded team both offensively and defensively.  Several other players will make an impact on the team this year as well. Ashley Reeves, Marin Williamson and Madison Lorenzo will see a ton of playing time along with Regan Miller and Alyssa Rager.”

The girls have many games in their future, so go support them at the Trinity Middle School field.
