Trinity grad Zack Connors '10 was named All-Conference First Team for Centre College lacrosse. This was Zack’s third year in a row winning this award, and he placed second in overall points for the Southern Athletic Conference.


Senior Lance Kaufman set another school record in the weight room. Kaufman broke the squat record in the heavyweight division with a lift of 545 lbs. That is the heaviest squat of any weight class ever performed at Trinity.   


Senior Preston Schilling signed his national letter of intent to swim for St. Bonaventure yesterday. Schilling placed second at the KHSAA state final meet in the 100 breaststroke. He is also a school record holder as a member of both the 200- and 400-yard freestyle relays. 

Schilling placed at the state meet in the 100 butterfly and the 200 individual medley, and swam the backstroke leg of the medley relay when called upon to do so. 

“Preston is a true team leader,” said Trinity swimming moderator Wayne Kraus. “He was chosen by his peers as a two-year team captain and has been everything you could ever want in a student-athlete. His work ethic is second to none, and he has that special quality that makes others around him perform even better.” 

St. Bonaventure University captured the Atlantic 10 conference championship this past season and finished the year ranked 13th in the nation in the final mid-major poll.

Intramural Volleyball

The 2013 intramural volleyball league, moderated by Mrs. Mary Mason, has come to a close.  In the freshman-sophomore league the seven teams each played three matches in pool play and then all entered the single-elimination tournament. 

The championship game was played Apr. 22 and pitted Thomas Schellenberg’s team against Walker Wilson’s team with Wilson’s team coming out victorious. Team members with Wilson were Zack Shunnarah, Eric Goranflo, Zac Joseph, Tyler Cissel, Harrison Kottkamp, Andrew Wuertz, Isaac Hout, Cooper Warner, Jack Finn and Patrick Smith.

In the junior-senior division, 12 teams and the faculty Old School team played in the tournament.  After several exciting games, it came down to Clayton Smith’s team playing Trevor Mason’s team on Apr. 29 for the championship. Both teams came in undefeated. Some of the highlights of the match included Smith’s powerful jump serve, Michael Dant’s steady play, Alex Edlin scoring numerous points with his underhand serve, and Trevor Mason blocking everything at the net. In the end, Mason’s team prevailed, winning the match in two games. This gave Mason’s team a two-peat. 

After the victory, Daniel Crush said, “That’s why we came back for our senior year!”  Mason said, “We started at the bottom, and now we’re here.” The champions are Mason, Crush, Dant, Mason Sullivan, Jack Werner, Edlin, John Fawbush and Joe Wuertz.
