Trinity High School senior takes on the Questions

Each week, LouisvilleCatholicSports.com will be getting to know a new student-athlete from the area by asking him/her a series of 20 key questions - some in-depth, some lighthearted - that will provide insight into the thoughts and personalities of the boys and girls who are doing great things on and off the local courts, fields, tracks, and courses. Below are the "20 Key Questions," brought to you by Key Financial Mortgage LLC.

Trinity High School senior Jake Stich is featured in this week's edition of LouisvilleCatholicSports.com's "20 Questions" segment, one day after the senior pitcher picked up a nice win for the Shamrocks over DeSales High School on the road.

Stich, who is considering Bellarmine University, University of Louisville, and Indiana University Southeast as various college options, maintains a 3.7 GPA and would like to continue playing baseball at the next level while studying Marine Biology.
