The Pacelli softball team won nine games in a row in June, making a run to the WIAA state tournament, and freshman pitcher Trzinski was a big reason why. She allowed one run or less in six games during the month. She did not walk a batter and gave up just two hits in a 2-0 win over Laona/Wabeno in the Division 5 sectional final. Trzinski also had a big game hitting in a 20-3 win over Nekoosa on June 7, going 2-for-4 with six RBIs and four runs scored.
This completes the Athlete of the Month series for the 2020-21 school year.
