Two district losses – 12-0 Monday at Lyon County and 9-0 Thursday against Livingston Central – sandwiched a 10-2 victory Friday over Russellville.
“The girls really needed this one,” Trigg’s first-year head coach Lacey Briscoe said. “They’d been getting down. We needed this to boost our confidence, especially with some of the competition we’ve got coming up.”
Fielding has been one of Trigg’s most glaring weaknesses all season, but the Lady ‘Cats committed only three errors against Russellville.
“It was better,” Briscoe said. “We have been in double digits. It was a better effort tonight.”
Trigg scored in every inning but the sixth and tallied three in the first and four in the third. Taylor Furr led the way with two hits and two runs batted in. Sierra Bush also had two RBIs and scored three times. Lauren Daniel, who pitched a complete game and struck out two Russellville batters, also knocked in two runs, and Morgan Parker had an RBI-double.
“I have seen improvement throughout the year,” Briscoe said. “It’s just getting them to be consistent. Each girl I play out there has the ability to do it.”
Trigg hosted Fort Campbell on Tuesday (results unavailable at press time) and are set to play Thursday at Livingston Central before hosting Murray on Saturday. The Lady ‘Cats then play Monday at Paducah Tilghman and Tuesday at Caldwell County.
