Boys Soccer: South Feature Athlete - Trinity's Noah Lazek

Written by Brad Everett on .

Name: Noah Lazek
School: Trinity
Grade: 12
Sport: Boys Soccer
Position: Defender

Background: Lazek's laser of a shot from 55 yards away with 17 seconds left in regulation found the back of the net and gave Trinity a dramatic 1-0 win at Moon last Saturday. It's hard to believe there will be a goal that rivals Lazek's strike – it was off a set piece – by any WPIAL player this season. Lazek is a two-year starter who is also a lacrosse standout. Trinity is 1-0-1 overall, with its other game being a 0-0 tie against Class AA Section 6 foe Waynesburg. The Hillers went 12-4-3 and finished as the section runner-up last season.


Boys Soccer: Veteran Trinity aiming for a section title

Written by Brad Everett on .

From 2008 to 2011, Trinity didn't win a section game.

The Hillers then won four section contests in 2012 and 2013 before finishing as the runner-up last season.

Now the team hopes to take the next step by winning a section title.

Trinity has a good bit of talent back from last year's team that went 8-1-3 in Class AA Section 6 -- Ringgold won the section -- and finished with an overall record of 12-4-3 after falling to Knoch in the first round of the WPIAL playoffs. Six full-time starters return and nine seniors are in the starting lineup.
