“It’s a fun group and I’m very proud of them,” Romaine said after the Trojans beat the Thunderbirds 3-0 (25-19, 25-9, 25-8). “We have big goals this year so it was exciting to see them play their game the way they know they can. Even though it’s at the start of the season, we’re playing really well and it’s nice to see.

Trenton improved to 2-0 in the Downriver League and will play his first tournament on Saturday at Woodhaven.

“We’re strong up front and have a lot of solid hitters,” said Romaine. “We have six seniors and four sophomores with a freshman and a junior, so we have a good mix. This year and the future look bright, so it’s exciting.

The first game was the most competitive of the evening.

Trenton started strong and took a 10-2 lead with help from Aila Johnson who scored some nice points for the visitors. A spike from Breanna Diktarewicz brought the Thunderbirds down to 10-5, but Ella Lucas’ back-to-back aces pushed Trenton past 15-8.

Trenton led 19-10 before a smash from Edsel Ford’s Gabrielle Marcoux made it 19-11. The T-Birds got away and reduced the deficit to 19-15. Two aces from Maya Pecovic brought Edsel to one point at 19-18.

The Trojans finished strong and finished the first game with a tip from Jill Paryaski for a 25-19 victory.

With Brianna Thomas on serve, Trenton took a 7-1 lead in Game 2. An ace from Johnson gave the Trojans a 9-3 lead. Good net play from Paryaski and Annika Segedi helped the visitors take a 16-4 lead.

Segedi, only a sophomore, turned a tip into a 17-4 lead, then delivered two nice spikes to give Trenton a 20-6 advantage. A tip from Johnson made it 24-9 and the Trojans won Game 2 25-9.

Trenton started strong again in Game 3. Edsel’s Diktarewicz had a decisive victory to put the home side on the board after a 6-0 start for Trenton. Two kills from Ava Holt gave the Trojans a 13-3 lead.

Senior ace Alayna Segedi made it 18-5 and a victory by Thomas gave Trenton a 21-5 advantage.

The T-Birds made some great games and played hard all night. For example, basically in Game 3, Jillian Nourie had an ace and Diktarewicz had a nice tip to bring the score to 24-8. But Trenton closed the door and ended the night with a 25-8 win.

With the loss, Edsel fell to 0-2 in the DRL.

Following Saturday’s tournament at Woodhaven, the Trojans return to DRL action on Tuesday, September 21 with a home game against Gibraltar Carlson. That same night, the T-Birds will visit Southgate Anderson.
