r Sports HIGH SCHOOL SOFTBALL ,, TRINITY CHRISTIAN Tigers face Class 5A SC East, lose by eight runs TC stays stride for stride with Black Raiders until fifth inning By ERIC VICCARO i Editor IOUX CITY -- For 4-1/2 innings on a steamy Thursday afternoon, the Trinity Christian High School soft- ball team played competi- tively against Sioux City East. Yes, tiny upstart Trinity Christian played a Class 5A school. The Iowa Girls High School Athletic Union added a fifth class to the sport of softball for this summer. Despite falling to the Black Raiders by a 9-1 count, Trinity Christian girls had every reason to be satis- fied with their effort. "The girls did very well and they didn't know how big Sioux City East was," Trinity Christian head coach Kassandra Heynen said. "It was a shock to them. But, the girls hung in there the whole time. It was a good game for us and it showed we could compete with any- one." Trinity Christian (3-10) also suffered a 12-2 setback against perennially strong Charter Oak-Ute. "Charter Oak-Ute was a good hitting ball club," Heynen said. "They were aggressive and we struggled to make defensive plays." Heynen reported that the Tigers' offense has started developing, even though they only scored three runs during this triangular. The Tigers will face George-Little Rock/Central Lyon tomorrow in George as the 2102 season contin- ues. The first pitch is set for 7 p.m. Tfinity. Christian played, a full seven-inning game with Sioux City East. And the Tigers actually went up top first by scoring a run in the third inning. Sophomore Kayla Kooima scored Trinity Christian's lone run of the contest. Kooima doubled to open the third inning. With two outs, Karina Heynen slapped an RBI single up the box to score Kayla. Nicole Gritters and Karina Heynen were also issued two walks, but couldn't score on those occasions when they reached base. Meanwhile, Trinity Christian's defense grew tired and committed more errors as the game wore along. In the end, Kalista Heynen surrendered nine runs (seven earned) on 10 hits while striking out one and walking two. Against Charter Oak-Ute, Haley Uittenbogaard started in left field and wound up scoring both of the Tigers' runs. Haley doubled, walked twice and stole a base. Rebecca Gritters and Kalista Heynen also pro- vided Trinity Christian with base hits, with one RBI apiece. The Tigers scored once in the first and again in the third. Meanwhile, Charter Oak- Ute put the game out of reach by plating five runs in the bottom of the fifth. Kooima pitched for the Tigers, yielding 12 runs (10 earned) on 11 hits and five walks. She struck out one. On Tuesday, June 12, Kingsley-Pierson topped Trinity Christian, 7-5. K-P tallied five runs in the bot- tom of the fourth to go ahead and stay. This was a competitive contest from the start. Rebecca Gritters went 2-for-4 with three runs scored and one stolen base. Karina Heynen smacked an RBI double. Vanessa Van Den Top also scored for the Tigers. Nicole Gritters and Kalista Heynen each slapped one hit. Eighth- graders Rochelle Kooiker and Ashley Poppema served as courtesy runners. Kalista Heynen took the loss, giving up seven runs (five earned) on six hits while whiffing five and walking six.
