Bulldog Head Coach Jason Lanham says that this group of seniors are a great group of young ladies, “it has been a true honor to coach them and watch them grow into a remarkable team. The best thing about them is that they aren’t just good softball players they are good people. I look forward to seeing what each of them achieves in the next chapter of their life and have no doubt it will be outstanding as well. But before we get to that we have some unfinished business to take care of.”
Today’s Game vs Gordon Lee begins the unfinished business for the Ladies. Trion (18-1) faces Gordon Lee which delivered Trion’s only loss on the season in a 5-1 game earlier in the season. The game will be played in Trion at 6:15.
“In the Power Ranking system that we play under all games matter, but anytime you play a rival it adds another layer of excitement, playing Gordon Lee is an excellent opportunity,” Lanham said.
