Trinity High School, the KHSAA Sweet 16 boys’ basketball reigning champion, announces its 2019-20 varsity basketball schedule. The schedule will feature top 20 competition from Kentucky and Ohio, along with an out-of-state holiday event in St. Louis, Missouri.
As part of the regular season game schedule, the Basketball Rocks will take on several top 20 programs from within Kentucky: Bardstown, Fern Creek, Lexington Catholic, Lexington Christian Academy, Male, Madison Central and Henry Clay. The regular season schedule also includes a visit from a top program in Ohio when the Centerville Elks come to Steinhauser Gymnasium. A January showdown with rival St. Xavier at Bellarmine University is also on the schedule.
The tournament schedule is as strong as ever. Trinity returns to the King of the Bluegrass, recognized as one of the top high school holiday tournaments in the country, a tournament that the Rocks have won twice before in 2009 and 2016. The Rocks travel to St. Louis for the Chaminade Holiday Tournament and then return home for the Louisville Invitational Tournament (LIT), featuring the top teams within metro Louisville.
Once the post season begins, Trinity will face competition in the 7th Region, as challenging as any in Kentucky, as the team competes for yet another regional crown and a trip to the KHSAA Sweet 16.
Director of Athletics Rob Saxton stated, “We look forward to taking on such an interesting and competitive schedule. Many of these teams and tournaments are very familiar to our coaches, players and fans. A challenging regular season schedule is something we seek each year.”
Head Coach Mike Szabo said, “This year’s roster will be made up of talented, yet inexperienced players. We are working hard in the preseason to become the best team we can be. A schedule such as this will help prepare our young men for competition in the always tough 7th Region.”
