The win was much needed after facing tough competition with ranked teams Benton and Solon earlier in last week.

The Trojans began this week on the road to Vinton. They did not get quite the start they were hoping for as they dropped both games of the double header to the Vikings.

In game one there was a lot of back and forth in the score until the bottom of the 6th inning. The score was tied 13-13 going into the bottom of the 6th. The Vikings had a breakthrough at the plate scoring 10 runs thus ending the game with a 23-13 win.

The Trojans led for a majority of game two. The were up 5-2 in the 5th inning. The Vikings began to chip away at that lead and ultimately won the game 10-7.

STC has a varsity tournament at East Marshall on Saturday, June 10 starting at 9 a.m.
