The Trinity state champion squad of 2018 won individual state championships in (5) separate events—all of those titles were claimed by graduated seniors. The 2019 team will be made up of a mixture of seniors and underclassmen.
Jack Baum, Shane Williams, Nick Lewis, Ryan O’Dea, and Nick Michels look to maintain the momentum gained last year in the distance events. They will take lessons learned from their Cross Country state championship in the fall and hope to establish themselves as some of the best distance runners in the state in the 800, 1600 and 3200 events. Jack Baum was state runner-up in the 800 in 2018 and boasts one of the top returning times in the 1600 (where he is #2 on Trinity’s all-time rankings).
Beyond the distance athletes, a mainstay of Trinity track and field over the past decade has been its excellent sprint relay corps; this year promises to be no different as junior anchors Elijah Moore and James Moore (no relation) look to surround themselves with some up-and-coming talent in the freshman and sophomore classes.
Our field athletes are led by Julian Pirtle who seeks to move beyond his triple jumping excellence into the sprints and hurdles. Sophomore standout Alton Jefferson has shown pre-season signs of being able to burst onto the stage as a premier young thrower in the state.
Heading into 2019, Trinity Track and Field has many questions to answer, but the talent and hard work displayed by the group so far promises good things ahead.
