The Shamrocks (21-3-1) fell to Paul Dunbar in the state final, played in Lexington on Saturday.  The 2-1 Bulldogs victory came after a 4-3 shootout win.  Trinity senior Jacob Gantt said,  “It was a hard-fought battle. We pushed out a goal in the first half, giving us momentum.  But after halftime, we came out timid and lost all of our momentum. They scored with only 3 1/2 minutes left, completely changing the remaining minutes of the game and extra time for us. We win as a team and lose as a team.”


The Rocks finished second (53-133) to St. Xavier in the Class 3-A state meet on Nov. 9 at the Kentucky Horse Park.  The Rocks were led by Derrich Stauble (8th, 16:23.60) and Blake Merkley (17th, 16:39.43).


Trinity's varsity dominated Eastern 48-16 in an opening-round Class 6-A playoff game.  The Rocks piled up nearly 500 yards of offense, including just over 400 yards rushing.  The defense showed improvement as well, giving up just over 200 yards.  Next up is another battle with Manual at 7:30 p.m. Friday at Marshall Stadium.   


The Trinity Rugby Club announced a free event sponsored by the Kentucky Youth Rugby Association.  This event will be held from 2-3:30 p.m. on Sunday in the center of the exercise loop at Seneca Park. The event will educate anyone interested in learning about rugby.  


Trinity beat rival Sycamore High School in both the varsity and JV games. The varsity won 4-2. Ramsey Mayne  scored two goals, and Taylor Burdorf and  Ben Huls scored two goals each.

The JV team dominated Sycamore 8-1. Ryan Trefe scored three three goals for hat trick, Curtiss Catalina scored two goals, and Reed Campana, Aydin Metel and Parker Robinson each scored one goal. Conor Byrne played goalie and made 14 saves. This week the team plays Paul Dunbar on Thursday in Lexington and Sunday afternoon in Cincinnati against longtime rival Cincinnati St. Xavier.


The Rocks opened their season with a 6-1 victory over DeSales at Ken Bowl on Nov. 5. Leading the way was sophomore Elijah Donohue, who rolled a pair of 200 games. Senior Conor Minogue rolled a 201. The Rocks also bowled a 246 in one of the two Baker games.


Trinity senior Ben Corder finished in the top 10 out of 275 riders in the youth division at the International Barrel Racing Association Nationals in November in Coverdale, Ind. In August, Corder, who has been riding horses since he was five years old, was reserve champion in the youth division at the state finals.
