The Tri Lady Titans hosted conference rival Winchester in a TEC showdown. Tri scored runs in every inning to keep pressure on the Falcons to keep pace throughout the game. Good defense and another solid performance in the circle by Chloe Gentry gave the home team the 13-2 victory. 
In the first inning the Falcons sent three batters to the plate. A lead off walk was erased by a put out at second base with Cheyenne Lee fielding a ground ball and throwing on to Rylee Boyd to get the force. The Winchester runner attempted to steal second and Cayla Claar threw a perfect strike to Lee at second base to get the second out. Genty struck out the batter to end the threat. In the bottom half of the frame Tri was able to grab an early two run lead. Chloe Gentry led the inning off with a single to right center field. Cayla Claar sacrifice bunted her to second base and Cheyenne Lee singled Gentry in to grab a 1-0 lead. Kennedy Peggs drew a walk to put Lee on second base. With two outs sophomore Bailey Parham got one of her three hits to single in Lee to put Tri up 2-0 after the first inning. 
Winchester answered in the top of the first with a run of their own on a double and single by the visitors. Gentry shut the Falcons to end scoring. With two outs in the bottom of the second inning, Chloe Gentry blasted a solo home run over the centerfield fence. Cayla Claar and Cheyenne Lee had back to back singles. On Lee’s single the centerfielder misplayed the ball and Claar scored from first base. Kennedy Peggs walked and Anastasia Sorrell was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Bailey Parham has her second hit of the night to centerfield to score Lee and Peggs to put Tri up 6-1.
Wichester scored an unearned run in the top of the third to close the gap to 6-2. Tri answered in the bottom of the inning with two runs of their own. Rylee Boyd led off the inning with a walk followed by her sister Ashlynn’s single to put runners at first and second. Chloe Gentry reached on a fielder’s choice when Boyd was forced out at third on a ground ball to shortstop. Cayla Claar sacrifice bunted the two runners to second and third setting up Cheyenne Lee to get a two rbi single putting Tri up 8-2 after three innings. 
Gentry set down the Falcons in order in the top of the fourth with three strikeouts. In the bottom of the fourth Anastasia Sorrell led the inning off with a double to right field. Bailey Parham got her third hit of the night to put runners at first and third base. Maleah Hewitt hit an rbi single to right field moving Parham to third. Hewitt stole second base putting both runners in scoring position. Ashlynn Boyd reached base on a single and Chloe Gentry followed it with her third hit of the game. This put Tri up 13-2 going into the top of the fifth. Gentry set the Falcons down to end the game. Tri continues conference play taking on undefeated Union County.
