Lacrosse: Trinity closing in on last year's win total

Written by Joe Koch on .

Trinity High completed the 2014 season with just three wins in 12 games. After three games this season, the Hillers already are approaching their win total from a year ago with two wins in their first four games.

The Hillers have not had a close game this season. After beginning the year with a solid non-section victory over Vincentian Academy, 10-4, the Hillers lost successive games to Canon-McMillan, 16-0, and Quaker Valley, 10-3. But they got back in the win column with a 12-7 victory over North Hills.

Trinity visits Division 2, Section 2 rivals Baldwin and Seton-LaSalle on Monday and Wednesday, respectively.


Softball: Trinity makes most of trip to Myrtle Beach

Written by Nicholas Tolomeo on .

Before Trinity could escape the cold weather, it opened section play on March 23 against Section 3-AAA rival West Mifflin. Despite limited practicing, Trinity looked ready to go in the season opener, winning 11-7 on the road. A day later it traveled to South Carolina to participate in the Ripken Experience in Myrtle Beach. On the trip Trinity played two official varsity games against teams from New Jersey. Trinity defeated Kearny 4-2 and Lodi 12-2. The strong start should not come as a surprise considering Trinity returns two all-section players in senior infielder Olivia Gray and junior infielder Delaney Elling. Their biggest hole to fill is that of outfielder Jasmin Fuqua, an all-section choice last year who has since graduated. Trinity returns to section play on Monday, weather permitting, when it hosts Belle Vernon. It has a major section showdown upcoming April 1 at Thomas Jefferson, the defending WPIAL Class AAA champion.
