Renfroe era at TCA
could end prematurely

The era of the Renfroe sisters’ softball dominance at Trinity Christian Academy may be coming to a premature end.
The siblings — Ivy, Ellen and Anna — could be bound for Nashville as their father, Marty, has been offered a job teaching chemistry at Ravenwood High School, according to multiple media reports.
Renfroe, the father, had lost his job teaching at TCA and joined the faculty at Liberty in Jackson this past school year, where he has yet to resign.
Ivy, who will be a senior this season, and Ellen, an incoming junior, helped TCA to the finals of the Class A state championship.
Prior to this year’s loss in the state finals, the Lady Lions had won back-to-back Class A championships.
Meanwhile, Anna, who was an eighth-grader this past season, made the varsity team during the recently completed campaign.
The two older Renfroe girls have already verbally comitted to play collegiately at Tennessee.
