A special congratulations to the three Trinity student-athletes who signed to play their respective sports at the next level. The ceremony took place Feb. 5 after school in Alumni Hall.
Sam Lewis (University of Dayton) and Tyler Roberson (Kent State University) signed to play football, and Will Epperson committed to bowl for Morehead State University.
Your Trinity Wrestling Rocks are the Region 4 CHAMPIONS! Because of some stellar wrestling in the finals and some previously but now fixed scoring errors, TRINITY stunned five-time champion St. X to win the Region 4 title! Trinity trailed by more than 25 entering the finals.
The Swim and Dive Rocks are your Region 5 CHAMPIONS! All three Trinity relays were victorious AND the Shamrocks placed three young men on the All Region team- Chris Schuering, Cole Gilkey, and Trent Kolter.

The Basketball Rocks started the week on a high note before finishing the week with two tough losses. Tuesday the Rocks defeated visiting Carroll County 76-40. Friday the Rocks traveled to Lexington Catholic where they ran into a tough Knights team led by Bellarmine-signee Ben Johnson. The Rocks never could get going and fell on the road 65-40. The Basketball Rocks were back in action at home on Saturday against the #1 ranked team in the state, the Male Bulldogs. The Rocks controlled the majority of the game, leading by seven going into the fourth quarter, but eventually the Rocks ran out of gas and the Bulldogs prevailed 62-53.
Special Note – At halftime of the Male game on Saturday evening, the 2010 Trinity Trifecta Rocks were honored. This team is the ONLY team in Kentucky high school basketball history to win the King of the Bluegrass, the Republic Bank Holiday Classic and the Louisville Invitational Tournament in the same year.
