The final House contest of the third quarter is the 3-Point Shooting Competition. Each House may have two participants in the contest: one “shooter” and one “rebounder” – or – two “shooters.” Trinity basketball team members are not permitted to participate in the contest. The preliminaries for the competition will take place TOMORROW during Advising in Shamrock Gym. Participants will attempt to make as many shots as they can in two minutes. The two Houses that make the most shots in the preliminaries will move on to the finals. The finals will take place in front of the entire school during the halftime of the Junior/Senior Intramural Basketball Championship on Thursday, March 7.

Attention all students –Intramural basketball is drawing to a close, and that means it is almost time for Intramural Volleyball!  There will be a freshman-sophomore division and a junior-senior division.  Any student NOT playing a spring sport, sanctioned or club, is eligible to play.  Intramural volleyball is NOT run through the house system and there is NO CHARGE to play – that’s right – no money!!  So, get all your friends together, choose a captain, and fill out a roster.  Rosters are available at the front table in the cafeteria or see Mrs. Mason in the Trinity Hall Technology Center anytime.  Games will be held on Mondays and Wednesdays between 3:15 and 5:00.  So, if you can play volleyball after school on Mondays and Wednesdays, starting in mid-March, get your team together, pick up a roster, fill it out, and turn it in to Mrs. Mason in the Trinity Hall Technology Center.  Rosters are due by Friday.  A mandatory captain’s meeting will be held on Monday, March 4 after school in the computer lab to discuss rules and schedules. Play will start Monday, March 18th and run thru the end of April.  If you want to play intramural volleyball, but don’t know anyone else who is playing, or you can’t get a full team together, see Mrs. Mason, she’ll match you up with others like you or a team that could use another player.

The Ky Derby Festival Robo Rumble will be held on Saturday.  This is a Robotics Competition using LEGO EV3 robots.  There are 3 different events – we need builders and programmers!  See Mrs. Mason in the Technology Center if you are interested in competing!!
