Athletics

Trinity Athletics provide a finely tuned mix of intercollegiate, club, intramural, and rec sports so that all students may realize their full potential as students and athletes. We compete in a wide array of DIII sports at a high level, and student participation at all levels is part of the Trinity culture. Our small enrollment means a relatively large percentage of the student body compete at the intercollegiate level.
