    End of October Athletics Update

    Mr. Jones
    When the school year began I challenged our athletes and our coaches to usher in a new era of competitiveness and everyone in Charger Blue has certainly embraced that challenge.

    The varsity volleyball team hosted their final regular season games last weekend, and with their win on Friday evening, solidified a spot in this year’s TAPPS 4A playoffs. It’s been a few years since the Chargers have had any November volleyball matches but this team has worked hard to earn the opportunity and will compete on November 9th. Opponent and game time yet to be determined.

    The varsity football team won their third District game of the season last Friday for Senior Night and have two regular season games left before a week off, and their first round playoff game the weekend of November 20th. This Chargers team just seems to get stronger as the season goes on. 

    The Charger cross country team is headed to the TAPPS State Championship Meet on Monday in Waco. Many of the team’s runners are looking to post personal best performances for the season next week.

    Since school began, all of our Middle School teams have worked hard. They have improved as teams and as athletes every week, and they represented the school well along the way. 

    Everyone in our community should be proud of the overall efforts of our Charger teams this Fall.
    As we transition to Winter sports, we will look to build on this foundation of competitiveness and continue to build competency as teams and as athletes on the field, courts, and in the pool. 

    Go Chargers!

  • *Over $6 million in Scholarships Awarded to Class of 2021

    *As of May  21, 2021, the Class of 2021 received over $6 million in scholarship awards. 

    Trinity School is proud to announce that the Class of 2021 has already received over $3 million in scholarship awards and 194 acceptances at 91 universities and colleges around the country. With notifications of acceptances and awards continuing, Trinity School’s graduating class of 42 students is expected to receive upward of $5 million dollars in scholarship awards. 
    As a college preparatory school, Trinity seeks to not only provide students with the knowledge and skills to be successful in college and beyond. The School also places significant emphasis on helping students find a post-secondary institution that best fits their goals and interests. 
    Dr. Trey Wetendorf, Director of College Advising, says, “I think what separates Trinity School compared to other schools in the area of college acceptances is how diverse our admittances are and our emphasis on helping students find the ‘right fit’ college.”
    This year, college admittance rates around the nation have been extremely low, but that hasn’t seemed to affect Trinity’s graduates. 
    “In a year that has been more competitive than ever, I am so proud of our students and so happy for our community,” Wetendorf says.
    Head of School Shelby Hammer agrees. “Our students have risen above the challenges of 2020 and learning in a pandemic, and we are so incredibly proud of their accomplishments. The Class of 2021 has shown tremendous dedication and they deserve to be celebrated.  I know that these students would be very quick to tell you, however, that they achieved their success through the support of their family, classmates, and teachers. Trinity is a community, and when graduation comes in May, our students know they will have the entire community cheering them on.”
