Congratulations to our Cross Country team on their record breaking speed last Saturday! The team enjoyed a baked potato meal on Friday night and this proved to be a great way to spur on our runners! Evan and Issac Hennessey placed second and third respectively in the PCC boys’ division and McKinley Traylor was only 1 second off of the lead in the PCC girls’ division. She placed second to a fellow competitor at Bayshore Christian School. The boys are currently first in the Pensacola Christian Conference and the girls are in second place. With approximately 20 miles per week under the belt, this team is sure to improve with each race and we congratulate them on a job well done.

Thursday, September 29th Trinitas recognized Master Phillip Gannon Myers as a NMSQT commended student. Of the 1.6 million high school juniors who took the PSAT last fall, 50,000 students who made the highest scores were singled out for distinction as the top 5% of all high school seniors. Headmaster Ron Gilley described Phillip in the morning meeting as a young man who gives his best not only at school, but who also works hard outside of school to build upon his knowledge and improve his abilities, seeking advice and tutoring from experts in their fields. We congratulate this exemplary student; we’re proud Phillip is part of the Trinitas family.
