By Mike Salbato Special to The Chronicle-News Following a difficult trip to Nebraska this past weekend, during which the Tro- jans dropped two games to Western Ne- braska and split with McCook Community College, the Trinidad State Junior College women’s softball team returned home to host 18th-ranked Otero Junior College on Tuesday afternoon. The Trojans came away with a split, winning the first game, 10-8, and falling in the night- cap, 9-4. In the first game, Trini- dad jumped out to a 3-1 lead off RBIs from Joni Davenport and Brooke Stevens. TSJC extended its lead to 7-2 head- ing into the fifth inning, when Otero mounted a comeback. The Lady Trojans held off the rally and came away with the huge 10-8 win over the Lady Rattlers. Freshmen pitcher Victoria Gonzales went the distance, throwing seven in- nings and allowing nine hits. Davenport and Stevens each had four RBIs in the contest. The second game was all Otero from the start, however, as the team jumped out to an early 6-0 lead. Trinidad got a couple of rallies started but could not supply the big hits when they needed them, ulti- mately falling by a score of 9-4. Macie Christian and Deanna Montano each had a home run to pace the Trojans, while Ste- vens and Tonya Trujillo each doubled in the game. Trinidad is now 7-11 in Re- gion IX play and 12-16 overall. The Trojans will travel to Col- by, Kansas this weekend for the Allen Wolfe Tournament. The Lady Trojans will play five games over the weekend, including a game against the seventh-ranked team in the na- tion, Butler Community Col- lege. TSJC’s next home stand will be April 23 against Adams State University JV at 3 p.m. and 5 p.m. at Southside Park.
