The Terrapins storm the field after winning their first Regional Championship.
History was made at Tampa Prep last Friday night when our Terrapin baseball team won the Regional Championship to advance to the State Final Four for the first time in school history! The team took a 10-6 victory in a nail-biter against Trinity Prep School.
During the game, the Terrapins only scored in two of the seven innings played. But when they scored; they scored in bunches.
Tampa Prep put up a five spot in the 3rd and scored five runs in the 6th to clinch a spot in the 3A State Semifinals with a 10-6 win over Trinity Prep.
Down 4-0 in the 3rd, the Terrapins went to work with a 3-run single from Peter Dragna and a 2-run homerun by Durin O'Linger.
But the Saints did not go away.
In the 5th, Ryan Olenek knocked in Tevin Covington to tie the game at five. Dylan Morrissey then scored on an attempted pick-off gone bad to give Trinity Prep a 6-5 lead.
The Terrapins would respond in the 6th with another big inning that got started with a 3-run blast by Nick Adams to give Tampa Prep an 8-6 lead. The Terrapins would tack on two more in the inning to finish 10-6.
They will face Providence from Jacksonville at Tradition Field in Port St. Lucie on Wednesday, May 23, at 10 a.m. for the Final Four. Go Terps!
