She was part of two of the Lady Bengals’ six national championships and it’s a memory Abby Trahan will carry for a lifetime.
In the 2017 title game, Trahan was a pinch runner and scored on a wild pitch to force a 7-7 tie before Emily Henderson advanced on a squeeze bunt by Haley Godeau to seal the 8-7 win over Jones County Junior College.
This season was a little less dramatic but still memorable as Trahan and the Lady Bengals earned a 10-5 win over Phoenix College for the championship.
