Lady Bulldogs Well Represented On Team
The Trenton Lady Bulldogs may not have captured the Class 3, District 15 softball title this season, but they did land five players on the all-district team.
Pitcher Mallory Hooyman, catcher Madi Trump, shortstop McKinley Hurley and outfielder Tosha Wilson were all first-team selections and third baseman Makaila Capeder was named to the second team.
Trump led Trenton’s selections this season with a .450 batting average. The Lady Bulldogs catcher had two home runs, 23 RBIs and 15 runs scored on the season.
Outside of Trump, Trenton’s other four selections were all playing new positions this year. Hooyman stepped in to fill some pretty big pitching shoes left by Scotlin Hurley and did just that. The junior went 13-4 on the season, throwing 101 innings. She struck out 65 batters and posted a 1.51 ERA.
While Mallory Hooyman was replacing McKinley Hurley’s older sister as the team’s pitcher, Hurley was replacing Hooyman’s older sister, Maddie, at shortstop. The younger Hurley played outstanding defense all season while hitting .431, scoring 21 runs and stealing 16 bases on the season.
Tosha Wilson rounded out Trenton’s first-team selections, replacing Capeder in the outfield. Capeder was an all-district outfielder last season and Wilson took over without missing a step, hitting .367 with 11 RBIs and 17 runs scored. Capeder, meanwhile, moved to third base and earned second-team honors after hitting .236 with nine runs scored and 16 RBIs.
“These five girls are very deserving of this honor,” Lady Bulldogs’ Head Coach John Cowling said. “Four of them stepped into new roles on our team this season and all of them were big contributors to our success.”
Behind the five all-district selections, the Lady Bulldogs enjoyed yet another strong softball season by going 15-5 overall and finishing as the district runners-up.
