Athletic News

A shout out to Head Coach Scott Holzknecht, his assistant Coaches and the Cross Country Rocks. On Saturday, in Lexington, the team ran hard and fast, finishing as state runner up. Senior Jacob Burnam ran 12th in state and Junior Jack Baum finished 13th. In the two years that Scott has been the Head Coach, Trinity runners have closed the gap on the state championship, moving from a 6th place finish in 2015, 140 points off of the championship score, to a runner up spot in 2016 and 2017, just 18 points off the championship score this past weekend. Well done Cross Country Rocks.

Bowling Rocks. Next match tomorrow, Wednesday, November 8. Rocks vs. PRP @ Dixie Lanes
