Trine claims first regional championship

ANGOLA, IND. -- Trine claimed the first regional championship in school history with a pair of victories against Muskingum Sunday afternoon.

After dropping a game to the Muskies yesterday, the Thunder gutted out three-consecutive win-or-go-home games to take home the first regional title in Trine softball history. The Thunder scored early and held on late in the 5-4 victory in game one. In the championship game, Trine pounded out 20 hits to win 13-4 by run-rule in six innings. Carly Searles was named Most Outstanding Player of the Regional after batting .421 with two triples, two home runs, three RBI's, eight runs scored, three steals and several superb defensive plays in center. The junior broker her own school hits record for a single-season and now has 80 on the year. TU concludes the Regional tournament 41-4, with Sunday's Game 2 victory giving Trine a new school-record for wins in a season.

Haleigh Daniels, Kaitlyn Clark and Bree Fuller also earned All-Regional Tournament honors. Daniels batted .533 with a homer and seven RBI's in the tournament. Clark hit .450 with a pair of home runs and eight batted in. Fuller picked two wins, including the clincher, and a save for the Thunder.

Trine moves on to face Emory in the Super Regionals next weekend in a best-of-three series.
