The Blessed Trinity High School girls softball team extended their win streak to four games after beating Dunwoody High School 7-2 Sept. 11. The Blessed Trinity Titans remain undefeated at home.

Dunwoody scored first and after trailing the Wildcats by a run, Blessed Trinity tied the game up 2-2 in the bottom of the fourth. Blessed Trinity had a five-run fifth inning to take a 7-2 lead.

Senior pitcher Amber Hamilton provided the pitching firepower to shut down the Dunwoody batters over the next two innings and seal the victory. Hamilton finished the game with seven strikeouts, and she currently maintains an ERA of .881 with 118 strikeouts for the season.

Coach Jan Podhorez, who has been associated with Blessed Trinity’s softball team for five years, the last two as head coach, said, “This is the most talented team we’ve ever put together at Blessed Trinity. We have a lot of speed, good pitching and strong defense.”

Blessed Trinity’s overall record goes to 10-4-2, and they are 2-0 in the region. They go on the road for six games before returning home to take on 8-AAAAA opponents South Gwinnett High School on Sept. 26.
