Nicholas Tolomeo profiles the Trinity softball team.
"Trinity enters the WPIAL Class AAA playoffs with a chip on its shoulder. Uniontown's pitcher enters the playoffs with broken bones in her face.
The two teams have brushed aside injuries and the disappointment of second-place finishes in their respective sections and will meet today at 4 p.m. at Hempfield in a first-round game.
No. 5 seed Trinity (15-2, 10-2) ended its eight-game winning streak and hopes of a shared section title after a 10-0 loss to South Fayette. The loss denied the Hillers a share of the Section 2 title and, after weather postponements, forces the team to ride into the playoffs on a bitter note.
"Obviously we are a little disappointed in not winning the section," Trinity coach Shawn Gray said. "The big thing I stress to them is you can't change the past. We have to take one game at a time.""
