With Trinity’s run to the KHSAA state baseball tournament complete, here is a recap of how the 2016-17 school year played out for the various Trinity sports teams.
All in all, a very good year for Trinity Athletics.
- Sportsmanship – Trinity completed the year with no ejections of any player or coach at any level (Freshman, JV or Varsity). This is the third consecutive year that Trinity has accomplished this feat. This accomplishment will place our school in the top 10% of all high schools across the Commonwealth of Kentucky having gone (3) consecutive years with no ejections.
- State Championships – Trinity brought home team championships in Football and Lacrosse. The Football Rocks and the Lacrosse Rocks were both ranked in the top 15 in national polls. Trinity Football set records for state championships for a school and for a head coach (Bob Beatty). Additionally, our Powerlifting, Swimming and Track & Field teams realized individual state champions.
- State Tournament Participation – Trinity qualified for state tournament action in the following sports with the following results:
o Archery – Qualified archers for state and national competition
o Baseball – Round of 16
o Bass Fishing – #19 at state
o Bowling – #5 at state
o Cross Country – state runners-up
o Golf – #3 at state
o Ice Hockey – state runners-up
o Swim and Dive – #4 at state
o Tennis – state runners-up
o Track and Field – state runners-up
o Wrestling – #30 at state
- #1 ranked teams – Basketball (29-4) and Soccer (17-1-3) both were ranked #1 in the state for most of their seasons before realizing disappointing losses in region tournament play
- Rugby and Volleyball – While these sports do not have enough participating high schools across Kentucky for an official state tournament, both of our teams saw increased roster numbers and improved levels of play
