Trinity looks to add more bricks to softball program foundation

CENTRAL ALABAMA SCOREBOARD OFFICE – Trusting the process has become the mentality of the Trinity Presbyterian Softball Program as the Wildcats look to build off their 8-win season. Third-year coach Stan Milton knows his team is still young but knows too of the potential they possess.

Milton: “We have to get better each day at practice. We are learning how to compete physically and mentally. I have a young group of girls along with two veterans. The majority of my team is in the ninth grade or younger. We are getting better with every practice that we have had. The girls have a lot of fun to be around and genuinely want to improve their craft.”

The Wildcats – last season and this season too – will have a first-hand look at teams who are playing close to the top of the class during the area as they compete against Prattville Christian and Montgomery Catholic.

The Panther (3A runners-up) and Knights (regional qualifiers) topped the Wildcats in all of their meetings last season.

But – things could change. Trinity (girls) basketball knocked off PCA (unbeaten) to win the area earlier in the month. In terms of softball, the Wildcats will be without the services of Linda Hill and Lily Windham (both to graduation) but will return a host of fresh faces poised to break out of their shells.

Milton highlighted a handful of Wildcats that could be game-changers. Lilly Yancey (.444 and a .500 on-base-percent shows potential. Mary Kathryn Adcock will step in to the leadoff slot boasting a .435 average and an on-base percentage just under .600. Beyond that, Milton pointed out the play of Mya Moskowitz, Ava Milton and Emma Rose Meldrum.

But the key stat for this year’s pack of Wildcats is their youth. Trinity opens the year on February 24 and travels down to Greenville four days later. The first Trinity home game of the season is March 1 against Reeltown. According to Trinity coaches, the tournament – outside of those at the end of the year – that is getting the most attention is the Cullman Varsity Tournament April 15-16.

Milton: “A lot of my girls have never been to a high school tournament out of town. So this will be a brand-new experience for most of them.”
