Lobos Add Jenna Trim for 2023

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M.— University of New Mexico head softball coach Nicole Dickson has landed a versatile addition in Jenna Trim, an Australian utility player and pitcher with two years of eligibility remaining.

From North Curl Curl, NSW, Australia, Trim can pitch, hit, play the corners and the outfield, and has played on the Under 19’s Australian Junior National Team as well as the Australian Development Team in the recent Canadian Cup.

Trim spent the past two seasons at Pensacola State, where she was led the Pirates to back-to-back Panhandle Conference championships and postseason regional berths.

Through her two years in the circle, Trim went 10-3, allowed just two home runs, carried a 1.51 ERA with 83 strikeouts to 25 walks and averaged 7.82 strikeouts per game. Besides pitching, Trim also played both first and third. At the plate, she held a career batting average of .368 with 67 RBI, 21 doubles and eight home runs while batting cleanup.

She received multiple accolades throughout her two years as a result of her success, twice named to the All-Panhandle Conference First Team and in 2022, was named to the FCSAA All-State Second Team.

As a freshman, Trim went 6-0 in the circle, striking out 40 batters in 39.0 innings, allowing 13 hits and only one earned run all season for a 0.18 ERA. Of the six games that she started, she tallied five complete games, which included a complete game no-hitter in her first start, striking out 12. Before an injury sidelined her at the start of conference play, Trim was ranked in the top two of the country at the position. At the plate, she hit .339 with a .548 slugging percentage and .432 on-base percentage after recording 21 hits, five doubles, a triple and two home runs.

In her sophomore season, she improved to 8.52 strikeouts per game with 43 strikeouts in 35.1 innings, appearing in nine games with six starts and throwing two complete games. Her stats at the plate improved as well, hitting .380 with a .452 on-base percentage and .595 slugging percentage, nearly tripling her number of hits with 60. Further, she hit 16 doubles and six home runs in 2021-22, while accounting for 48 RBI.

As previously mentioned, Trim brings international experience, cultivating her skills with the Australian Junior National Team and on the Australian Development Team. In 2019, she played at the World Championships, where the Aussies finished fourth. In 2020, Trim competed with NSW, with the team bringing home the coveted Gilley’s Shield National Championship in Australia. This summer, Trim competed at the Canada Cup with the Aussie Spirit Development Team.

Academically, Trim was also a standout, twice being named a NFCA Scholar-Athlete, and was a NJCAA First Team Academic All-American in 2021 and NJCAA Second Team Academic All-American in 2022. Additionally, she also made the Panhandle Conference All-Academic Team both years.

While her collegiate career started at Pensacola State, Trim has ties to UNM as she was coached by Lyndsey Angus, who was an assistant coach for the Lobos from 2010-15.

Trim is the second signee for Dickson, joining Taylor Snow who signed in June.
