Winter Sports Wrap-Up
Posted 03/28/2017 06:03PM

Here are some quick highlights from a very enjoyable and successful winter season:

Special shout out to our 4A Girls Basketball team and Coach Ivan Denhartog for winning the 4A AIPL League Championship and finishing the season with a record of 9-1! We had great participation in basketball this year, and Trinity fielded 13 teams with a combined record of 65-31.

In its inaugural year, Trinity Swimming had 25 middle-school athletes, who often braved cold weather during practices at 5:45 a.m. But that work paid off! The group competed in four meets and earned victories in all of them. Coach Jennifer Pool and the team had a fantastic first year.

Thanks to all those student-athletes who dared to wear the Tornado Blue and represent Trinity in athletics. I am proud of you all! Thanks to all our winter coaches for their commitment, time and dedication. You have proven that you love this school and our athletics, and for that, I am truly grateful. And of course, thank you parents for your continual support.

As we move into the spring season, I leave you with a final thought. In more than 25 years of coaching, I have learned a lot, but one thing sticks with me. The most significant wins can’t be found on a scoreboard. These wins are often found in little moments—like a conversation or a smile. And though these moments are brief, they can have a lasting impact. They can give confidence to someone who is struggling. They can instill values like teamwork and leadership and tenacity. These moments are the wins that matter most, and they are the reason why we coach.

Go Tornado!

Dwayne Bryant, Trinity Athletics Director
