(TRINIDAD, Colo.) – Winter is still firmly ensconced in the Trinidad area, but that rarely stops the start of the spring sports seasons at TSJC. The Trojan Baseball and Softball teams return to practice this weekend in preparation for their respective home openers on February 3. The baseball team will open at noon on that Friday with a doubleheader against Garden City Community College at Central Park. An hour later the softball team will take the field against Frank Phillips, also a doubleheader, at Southside Park.
The Trojan teams each had strong seasons in 2016 with the men claiming the Region IX crown and finishing with a 43-17 record. The softball team fell in the Region IX title game wrapping the season 39-16. This year will hopefully see some milestones reached as Coach Steve Swazo has a chance to reach his 300th win, and the baseball team will be playing for their fourth straight region title. The teams will play nearly 50 combined home games this spring.
