TAMPA — After Chamberlain’s 7-3 victory against Hillsborough Friday — the Chiefs’ fifth consecutive district championship in a Class 7A, District 8 finale — Chiefs coach Bob Diez fired a compliment toward the Terriers before talking about his team’s rich history.“(Hillsborough) has done a tremendous job," said Diez, whose Chiefs snapped a 1-all sixth-inning tie with six unearned runs. “(Give the) credit to them. It’s nothing that we didn’t do. . . . It’s what they did. They caught balls they’re supposed to catch."The Terriers entered the game with house money. Their 6-5, come-from-behind victory on Tuesday against host Gaither ensured them of playing in a region quarterfinal next week for the first time in school history.“We’re a Cinderella team trying to figure it out," Hillsborough coach Leo Dominguez said. “We had a freshman pitcher (Rebekah Diaz) against a senior (Chamberlain’s Lani Trent). Our freshman held the best team in Hillsborough County for the last so-many years to one run for 5-1/2 innings.“We’ve been battling all year. We’re a school that’s not about softball, and we’re trying to change the culture. It starts by beating (Chamberlain), or at least competing with them. They’re going to put respect on our name from here on out, and people will understand."Chamberlain (19-4) defeated Hillsborough (9-12) by scores of 11-1 and 7-3 during the regular season. But after the Chiefs scored an unearned run in the first, the Terriers hung tough as Chamberlain stranded nine base runners (seven in scoring position) through the first four innings.Trent, who threw a complete-game seven-hitter with seven strikeouts, preserved the Chiefs’ 1-0 lead until the sixth, when Diaz singled home Emani Johnson, who had singled and stole second.Diaz retired the first two Chamberlain hitters in the bottom of the sixth before the Chiefs exploded. Asia Thomas started the blitz with a single, the first of seven consecutive Chamberlain batters to reach base. After Thomas stole second and Haylie Corcho walked, Trent snapped the tie with a two-run single to center on a 2-1 pitch. It was the 114th pitch of the game for Diaz, who finished with 130 pitches and seven walksKaitlyn Buckley added a two-run single for Chamberlain, and Selina Ramos’ two-run double capped the Chiefs’ big inning, which featured two Hillsborough errors, two walks and the final four of Chamberlain’s six hits.Hillsborough scored two times in the seventh against Trent, who threw 65 of 94 pitches for strikes – including 22 of 30 first-pitch strikes.All seven Chamberlain runs were unearned as Hillsborough committed five errors.It was the 19th district crown in 28 years for Diez, who has taken his team to 11 region finals and nine final fours.“It’s not me, it’s our program," Diez said.
