Heading into this week, Trigg County High School’s softball team was still looking for its first win after a pair of losses last week.

Last Tuesday, Trigg lost 14-4 at Fort Campbell and then returned home Thursday and lost 6-2 to 5th District foe Lyon County.

The Lady Wildcats got off to a good start at Fort Campbell with a three-run first inning. However, the Lady Falcons took advantage of Trigg’s struggles in the field, scoring eight runs thanks to six Lady ‘Cat errors. Trigg finished with 11 errors on the night.

Elizabeth Torian led Trigg at the plate with a single and three runs batted in. Morgan Parker reached base three times with a single, a double and a walk.

Lauren Daniel pitched for the Lady ‘Cats and struck out two in six innings. She allowed only two earned runs in the game.

Thursday, Trigg showed vast improvement on defense but couldn’t generate enough offense against Lyon County. The Lady ‘Cats committed only one error, but they also recorded only five hits. Parker led the way with a pair of singles, and Daniel pitched another complete game, striking out one and walking one.

The junior varsity team picked up its first win of the year at Fort Campbell, topping the Lady Falcons 14-6. Sixth-grader Alison Russell pitched for Trigg.

Trigg played Tuesday against Crittenden County (results unavailable at press time) and is scheduled to host Todd County Central on Thursday and travel Friday to Murray and Tuesday to University Heights.
