Frankfort, N.Y. - The Frankfort-Schuyler Maroon Knights softball team has an extremely valuable weapon. Her name is Trinity Critelli.

A senior pitcher, Critelli has pitched every inning of every game for the last two seasons. This year, she's tossed 47 innings, where she has 89 strikeouts and a 1.30 ERA.

This past week, she threw 20 innings of work where she gave up just six hits, no runs and struck out 46 batters. In a single game against Mt. Markham on Wednesday, Critelli pitched a complete game and struck out 19.

"It feels good, just have to keep it going," Critelli said of the big day. "A lot of it was my catcher Gianna [DeSarro], she was doing a great job back there. I have my fielders behind me, knowing that you have your team behind you just makes it 100% better."

Critelli has helped to lead the Maroon Knights to a 5-2 record so far this season, being the centerpiece for a young team quickly gaining experience at the varsity level.

"You know that everyday is going to be exciting when she goes out there and takes the mound," said Maroon Knights head coach, Ron Gatto. "She's a great leader on and off the field. Those younger kids look up to her, almost like they want to be her, they want to get to that success level."

Critelli said that being smaller in stature with decent pitch speed, location is crucial for her to experience success.

She also said that based on how the team is playing behind her, she will alter between types of pitches in order to influence different kinds of outs.

...And what about combating the fatigue factor when pitching every day?

"Ice," Critelli said with a smile. "Lots and lots of ice."
