Catholic Schools Week will take place this year from January 27 to February 2. As part of our celebration of CSW, we will have a student-faculty basketball game on Thursday, January 31. This year’s game will also feature a student-faculty dodgeball game during halftime of the basketball game. The student basketball team will consist of three students from each grade level, and the dodgeball team will consist of two students from each grade level. Students interested in playing basketball or dodgeball must purchase a chance. Chances will be $1 and will be available during all lunches through Monday. Students may enter as many times as they want, and once a student has submitted his name, other students may purchase additional chances on his behalf. Current members of the freshman, JV or varsity basketball team are not eligible to participate in the basketball game. The money collected from the purchase of chances will benefit Community Clubhouse, a nonprofit organization that provides tutoring for children in the Buechel neighborhood of Louisville.
The Varsity and JV quick recall teams had a greaT performance at the league tournament on Saturday, hosted by St. X. Trinity was the ONLY team to bring home league season and tournament trophies in both JV and Varsity. The Varsity team finished the regular season in a rare 3-way tie for 1st place with KCD and Sacred Heart, with each team finishing 10-1. In the tournament, the Rocks easily beat CAL to set up a match with KCD. Having beat the Bearcats 25-24 in the season, the Rocks were in for a challenge and rose to the occasion, winning 24-19. That set up a chance to avenge their only loss of the season to Sacred Heart, which had ended Trinity’s 19 game unbeaten streak in a lopsided SHA win. Trinity fell behind 7-2 but then rallied to lead 13-11 at the half. The work the Rocks have put in showed as the team pulled away to win 28-20. Senior captain Sammy Mattingly deserves credit for clitch answers and steadying the team, while Junior Jack McCalpin twice initiated first-half rallies with great math answers. Junior Nick Huls was great as usual and Trinity received critical points from Aden Yeager too. Credit also goes to John Fernandez, Hunter Ruckriegel and Gavin Weakley for their support. MVP for the day was Sammy Mattingly. The JV Rocks finished second in the league tournament. The JV Rocks easily beat KCD 29-15, then gutted out a 25-20 victory over DeSales after being down by 1 at half. Unfortunately the Rocks winning did not continue, losing in the championship match to the more experienced St. X squad. MVP for the tournament was Riley Moremen. Victory would not have been possible though without major contributions from Dylan Fox, Cade Watson, Dylan Ernst and Will Hodge. The future looks bright for the JV team though, returning a strong freshman core who performed better than the freshmen of the champs head to head. Sam Arnold, Chris Paris, Zach Young, Matthew Fish, Paul Springer, Trevor Antle and Garrett Weakley all showed promise and look to avenge the JV Rocks’ loss next year.
