For the fourth time in five years, Trinity’s Academic Team was victorious in District Governor’s Cup competition.
The Rocks defeated St. Xavier, Collegiate, and Sacred Heart. Prior to 2018, the Rocks had won district only once since 1987 (in ’98).
In quick recall, Trinity beat Collegiate but fell to St. X in the quarterfinals. According to team head coach Mr. Mark Amick, the team rebounded and “dispatched Collegiate, setting up a rematch with St. X. The team of MVP Krish Gupta, Paul Springer, Russell Glass, Anthony Holder, John Kehdy, and Ryan Groza rose to the challenge and avenged the earlier defeat, beating St. X 32-27.”
That set up a final match for district champion in quick recall. The Rocks finished the 80 questions leading 33-31, but an inquiry swung the result in St. X’s favor, and the Tigers won by 2.
Trinity is looking forward to avenging the loss in region play on Feb. 19. The Rocks have won Region Seven two of the last three years and are excited to try and repeat as region champions!
Scoring for the Rocks in individual testing were the following:
Krish Gupta ’23 – District champ in Arts & Humanities
Anthony Holder ’23 – District champ in Language Arts
Paul Springer ’22 – District champ in Math
Ryan Groza ’22– second in Math and second in Science

Amick expressed his congratulations to the team and to fellow coaches Mr. Jason Rand and Mr. Blake Napper.
