It didn’t take long this season sophomore pitcher Trey Fisher to make a difference for Old Dominion University’s baseball team.

Fisher, the son of Kim and Chuck Fisher of Temperanceville, saw action on the mound in two of the Monarchs’ first three games of the season last weekend at home against High Point.

In both instances, with the game on the line, the 6-foot lefthander closed the door on the visiting Panthers during late-inning appearances.

In the second game of a doubleheader on Friday, Feb. 15, the 2017 Chincoteague High School graduate held High Point scoreless in an inning of work in the top of the ninth of a one-run loss.

Then Fisher came back Sunday, Feb. 17 against High Point and again started the ninth inning, retiring two of the three batters he faced and allowing no runs. The Panthers defeated the Monarchs, 7-5.

A sport management major, Fisher made 10 appearances and one start during his freshman year at Old Dominion. His best performance last year was at Louisiana Tech, where he spun 2.2 innings of shutout relief.

Fisher was named player of the year for his district and conference for Chincoteague High in 2017.
