Trevecca softball team finishes top season

The Trevecca softball team's best season in history came to an end Tuesday, but it did not come without accolade.  This season, Trevecca (47-15) set records in most victories, most home runs, first time to win regular-season and tournament championships, and first NAIA championship appearance.

In the NAIA softball national championship in Decatur, Ala., Trevecca finished with a 2-1 loss to California Baptist in the losers bracket of the double-elimination tournament.

In the game, the Trojans broke a scoreless tie in the bottom of the fifth inning.
