On the mound, Chris Scinta earned the win after throwing 3.2 innings allowing no earned runs. Montesino finished the game earning the final four outs.
“It is always nice to start the season in the win column,” said Head Coach Joseph Giummule. “The boys worked hard, and we had a great trip down to Key West over the weekend to help prepare us for the season.
While it was their first regular-season game of the season, JPT split against Key West in the Preseason Classic. The Trojans are coming off a season where they won 14 games and have not won less than ten games in each of the past six seasons.
Up next, they will continue their four-game road trip to start the season with a matchup against South Broward High School on Wednesday, February 19 at 6:30 p.m.
JPT will not have their home opener until March 3 when they take on Monarch High School at 6:30 p.m.
