Trinity Athletics 2017-18
Written by Coach Rich
When our Girls and Boys Varsity Basketball teams started their season workouts back in November we discussed the journey and the hard work required to achieve their goals. One of our goals along that journey was coming together as a team and playing as a unit. As we head into the last game of the season (Calvary @ 7:30 pm at Calvary) before playoffs, it’s obvious their hard work is paying off. Each team is currently sitting in 2nd place, with first place on the line for the Boys. Sports are played to glorify God and have fun and if our games against Kaimuki were any indication, the Lions had a great time last Saturday. The Ladies were coming off an overnight team bonding event (I’m sure all they talked about was basketball!) and played with such intensity and focus it was obvious their common goal and joy was evident. The men were playing their second game of the weekend so I was uncertain what to expect, tired legs, lack of focus. Needless to say I was nervous. Well it was none of those. They played with such drive and desire that all TCS Lions would be proud. If at all possible come join us at Calvary this Friday (2/16) and cheer for your Lions. Ladies start about 7:30 pm with the men to follow. And stay tuned for the upcoming two game playoff schedule, it comes out next week. Go Lions!
Secondary School Basketball Update

Since the TCS 2016-2017 basketball season ended, several Lions have been working hard to improve their skills and prepare for the 2017-2018 season. Joyously, on Jan. 5th & 6th our season began with games against Friendship Academy and Ko’olau Baptist. It’s exciting to share that after hard fought battles both the Boys team and Girls won their games. Frequently, success is based on wins and losses but in reality there are many more aspects to it than just the final score. As the Coach, that’s watched them work very hard to get here, I was very pleased to see the way they competed both individually and as a team. In a regular season of just 10 (Girls) and 12 (Boys) games, each game is important but some seem to carry a bit more emotion than others and our games this weekend against Calvary Christian (CCCS) and Kaimuki Christian (KCS) were just that type. Two games will be played at Calvary Christian School in Aiea this weekend vs Calvary Christian School on Friday at 7:30 PM (Girls first, Boys to follow) and on Saturday morning at 11:00 AM against Kaimuki Christian School. It’s always nice to have supporters in the stands so if your schedule allows and you want to see some exciting basketball, come join us at Calvary this weekend. All future games are shown in the TCS calendar so you can plan accordingly. GO LIONS!
Elementary Volleyball: Updates
Written by Coach Kathy Katoa
The 4-6th grade Lady Lions had their final game of the season last week against Kamehameha's 4-6th grade team. The girls have had a great season and although they lost to the Warriors, the Lions fought hard to stay in the game. It is not easy playing these big schools, but the young Lions fight hard and do amazing things. Their positive attitude and indomitable spirit are unparalleled in this league. Over the course of just 6 games the girls have improved tremendously in their fundamental skills, their confidence as a team and have mastered the art of cheering on their teammates. If you ever have a down day and need someone to pick you up, ask the girls volleyball team for a cheer. You will leave uplifted, encouraged and with a giant smile on your face. Cheehooo! Great season ladies, and way to go Lions!
