Tribune Athlete of the Week: Trent Greene

Athlete of the Week: TRENT GREENE

Alhambra High School junior Trent Greene is this week’s Tribune Athlete of the Week, sponsored by Matthew C Rinn of State Farm.

Greene has been one of the Bulldogs’ most consistent hitters in his second season on the varsity team.

In last week’s three-game home stand, Greene drove in a pair of RBI’s in Alhambra’s three games. He is currently leading the team with six RBIs on the season so far.

Greene laced a single in the Bulldogs’ 7-2 loss to Cardinal Newman as a pinch hitter, driving in one of only two runs scored on the afternoon.

In the 2-0 win over St. Mary’s-Albany, Greene scored a run and drove one in, helping the Bulldogs to beat the Panthers and end what was at the time a two-game losing streak.

Prior to that, Greene had his biggest game of the season in a 6-4 win over Albany on March 13. In that game, Greene hit a three-run home run to cap a comeback by the Bulldogs, who were down by four runs at one point in the contest.

Also garnering attention for the award was junior starting pitcher Cole Gifford, who has already claimed the honor once this season.
