Congratulations to our 2018 All Conference Winners! The Panhandle Christian Conference chose a select few athletes to receive this prestigious award. Varsity volleyball players Jillian Todd, Alex Johnson, Erica Radcliffe, Mekenzie Petersen, and Emma Todd were all given medals. Varsity soccer athletes were also recognized for exceptional play. Seniors Kevin Dulion, Tucker Gregg, and Adam Strickler were each awarded medals. After a final record of 6-1, our Varsity lady knights placed second in the conference. They will compete for a first place overall finish this weekend. The varsity soccer players ended the regular season with a record of 6-2-2, placing third in the conference. They also made it to the final four and will compete for the championship title this weekend. Well done athletes! Fans, come out to support our Knights this weekend at Ashton Brosnaham Park (Friday, October 19th, 4:30 pm-soccer) and Aletheia Christian School (Friday, October 19th, 6 pm-volleyball). Both teams will compete at their respective locations on Saturday in either a consolation or championship game. Go Knights!
For the first time in Trinitas athletic history, our team ended the season undefeated! The JV Lady Knights, led by Coach Joy Cowart, never lost a game in the regular season and will move on to the Championship match next weekend. Competing in the Panhandle Christian Conference, they will have their final game against Pensacola Christian Academy on Saturday, October 20th at 10:30 am. Come out to cheer on these amazing lady Knights as they break records never before seen in our TCS volleyball history.
With a record of 5-1-2, our Varsity soccer players have steadily improved their skills over this soccer season. Last Friday night resulted in a huge upset against rival team Aletheia Christian Academy. After losing to them initially on September 7, they won Friday night with a final score of 2-0. It was a heroic win for our young men whose defense was strong and play, aggressive. Again this week, the Knights were victorious against another tough opponent, the Calvary Patriots. If they win the last two games, they will have won the regular season and will become Regional Champions! Come out to support the team this Friday night, October 5th, as we cheer on our boys and enjoy pizza together at Ashton Brosnaham Park. Fun begins at 6:30PM, game starts at 7:00PM.
The 9th – 12th grade students are already gearing up for the annual Rhetoric Winter Ball. The ball is early this year, so rhetoric families mark your calendars for December 8th. A starry night in New York City is the theme and our students will be ready! What a fun physical education activity – ballroom dancing. It’s the highlight of the PE year.
Give them an inch and they will take a mile……or they may learn to measure all sorts of things! Mrs. Wark’s first grade class used one inch cubes to measure each other’s pencils, hands, arms, feet, legs, and eventually the entire length of their bodies. It was a colorful, hands on, and creative way to visualize length in inches. How tall is your first grader?
Volunteers packaged and prepared our annual Benefit Gala and Auction invitations early this morning and placed them in the mail soon thereafter. Check your mailbox and order your tickets soon! You don’t want to miss out on this special evening of delicious food, an enchanting setting, and irresistible items on which to bid. The Benefit Gala, scheduled for November 2nd, will be one of many opportunities for us to celebrate twenty years and God’s many blessings on Trinitas. See you there! It’ll be a roaring good time!
We invite all Trinitas fans to our first soccer tailgate of the season on Friday, September 7, 2018 at Ashton Brosnaham field. We’ll serve burgers and dogs beginning at 6:00PM as the Varsity Knights prepare to face the Aletheia Lions at 7:00PM under the lights of the stadium. For the ultimate Trinitas fan, the junior varsity volleyball team plays at 4:30PM and the varsity volleyball plays at 5:30PM in the Trinitas Grand Hall. There will be plenty of food for all during the soccer game if you’re inclined to make it an entire sporting evening.
Trinitas held our twentieth annual orientation this week. At Parent Orientation, Trinitas faculty and parents joined together to reinforce and discuss the goals of a Classical Christian education. There was a wealth of information for new and old parents who were able to visit classrooms, ask questions, and experience what an average day will be like for their children. Students arrived for their own orientation well pressed and full of smiles, supplies in hand, and parents in tow. This year marks the return of the early kindergarten program at Trinitas. Aptly named the Junior Kindergarten Class, twelve students began their first year here learning, as you would expect, Psalm 1. Welcome to all new and returning students. It’s sure to be a great year!
For our family, friends, and fans, the final day to order spirit wear is Tuesday, September 4th at 4 PM. Join us in supporting the Knights and show your school spirit around town.
West Florida Baptist recently hosted the first preseason volleyball tournament. Eight teams from Florida, Alabama, and Mississippi competed for two days in hard fought games. Our lady Knights were victorious in round one against Escambia Academy, but lost Friday evening against Victory Christian, placing them in the losers’ bracket. The loss did not stop our ladies, but spurred them on to work harder playing nine sets in four additional games Saturday, three consecutive. They battled much of the day, consistently dominating their respective opponents. After hours of play time, they rebounded and ultimately won the tournament against a rematch with Victory Christian which they won in two sets. Jillian Todd and Alex Johnson were named All Tournament Players and the Varsity team was awarded the first place trophy. Congratulations Lady Knights on a job well done!
Trinitas senior, Jillian Todd, was given the amazing opportunity to experience the behind the scenes workings of the University of West Florida when she, along with two other high school students, were chosen to participate in the four-week Presidential Internship program. These students worked one-on-one with UWF President Martha Saunders and the senior leadership team as well as other faculty and staff members from the Division of Research and Strategic Innovation, the Division of Academic Affairs, the Division of University Advancement, and the President’s Office. In addition to learning the business aspects of the university, Jillian spent a week in the nursing department which is her chosen field of study. She enjoyed talking with professors and even taking part in classes and labs saying, “The time I spent with the professors and students reinforced my desire and excitement to go into the nursing field.”
