Trion Softball: Columbus bound

For the fifth consecutive year the Trion Lady Dogs are heading to Columbus for the Elite 8. The Lady Bulldogs defeated Emanuel County Institute in a best of three series to secure the spot in the Elite 8. Trion will face Telfair County Thursday morning at 9 a.m.

“We played extremely well in all phases of the game. Shepherd was awesome in the circle only allowing two total runs in both games combined and throwing a no hitter in game two against one of the most high powered offenses in the state. The the bats were on fire 1-9 as the line produced 20 runs in only 10inning of softball as both games were shortened via the run rule with Trion claiming a 12-2 victory in five inning in game one and 8-0 victory in 5 inning in game two. I am extremely proud about punching our ticket to the Elite 8 in Columbus for the fifth consecutive year and look forward to the opportunity to compete for the state title. Simply put it’s great to be a Trion Bulldog and these ladies are truly Bulldog Tough,” Coach Lanham said.
