TAMPA -- The north Tampa area took a split at the state softball championships Thursday in Auburndale. While Sickles won the school's first championship, Chamberlain ended its season at 30-3. Gonzalez Tate scored three runs in the fourth inning to erase an early 1-0 Chief lead. Chamberlain scored again in the sixth inning but it wouldn't be enough in the 3-2 defeat. The loss also marked the end of senior pitcher Niki Trowell's prep career. A University of South Florida signee, Trowell was 13-1-1 this season with 127 strikeouts and a 0.69 ERA. Amanda Cody, who took the loss Thursday, will become the Chiefs' No. 1 pitcher next season.
