Who's who on the TCS Basketball teams
By Coach Rich

Lions, its basketball season, the rosters are set. Lion’s basketball, like all TCS activities, has many more people involved than just the players and coaches, all working in the background to help create the successful journey. If you’re a basketball fan and would like to help come see me, I’m frequently on the court and we can talk.  Our schedules will come out in the next few weeks with games beginning soon after the first of the year.  Once again the Girls and Boys Varsity games will be played back-to-back on the same nights.  The JV game specifics (teams, locations, days, times, etc.) will be shared as soon as I have something.  Once the word is out I hope the entire TCS Ohana can come see our games and expect to see aggressive spirited basketball. Go Lions!

Volleyball Championship!

November 06, 2017
By Trinity Christian School

Champions!  We have concluded another amazing varsity volleyball season for the Lions. Both the boys and the girls were triumphant in the finals of the AACS championship tournament that took place at Calvary Chapel last weekend. The boys defeated the Calvary Pueo in two straight sets to keep their squeaky clean undefeated record in tact! The girls followed suit by showing Calvary what they were made of.  In a long time rivalry between the two teams and Trinity in the underdog position having lost to the Lady Pueo twice during the regular season, the Lady Lions had their work cut out for them.  They fought hard for every point and pleased the Lions fans with an amazing effort.  They defeated Calvary in two sets, God was in the house!  Congratulations to both teams that worked hard all season to bring home four trophies!  The Lions also had 5 players recognized as a part of the league’s All-Star team: senior, Chad Schuler, and juniors Jesse Makuakane, Noah Leong, Karley Kimitsuka and Elise Gerstenberger.  Well done Lions, what a wonderful finish to an outstanding season!  The coaches and players would like to thank the Trinity parents and fans for their unwavering support throughout the season.  You make coaching so enjoyable and memorable, we love you and appreciate the help, cheering, snacks, and thoughtful gifts.  And most of all, we thank our Lord and Savior for teaching us and growing us through the game of volleyball, thank you Jesus!

"I Love Losing to Trinity": Athletics Updates September 28-29

Varsity Boys and Girls Volleyball

"I love losing to Trinity,” are the words that the Ko‘olau Baptist coach said to me after the Trinity girls beat the ladies of KBA in two straight sets Saturday evening. This was a very kind and strong compliment she was paying to the character of the TCS girls' volleyball team. Although the TCS girls are a stronger team, they won with humility and managed to give love and encouragement towards the other team. As a coach, I love hearing this kind of feedback because this is the kind of athlete we are working so hard to develop. If you can learn to work extremely hard together for months and glorify God by playing your best in a game and still show love towards God, your teammates, and opponents in the heat of competition and in victory or defeat, then we as coaches have done our job. Great job ladies! You are bringing light to the world through sports, I applaud you for being a positive role model for young women. The girls remain seeded number 2 behind their longtime rivals, Calvary as we head towards the semifinals of the championship tournament on Saturday, October 21.

The undefeated boys team, seeded number 1, are a spectacular sight to see. If you enjoy the thrill of pounding spikes, bullet serves, crushing blocks and even an occasional dance, then you need to come cheer these boys on. Don’t get me wrong, they too are fine examples of young, male, Christian athletes, but they are just so fun to watch. Just ask some of their favorite fans, Dr. Halcomb and Mr. Brians. So inspired, these two colleagues couldn’t help but yell supportive battle cries in Latin to cheer on our courageous and skilled young men. You never know what you may see or hear at a classical Christian school athletic event!

Please join us October 21st and 28th for the volleyball tournament of champions at the Calvary Chapel gym in Aiea. Times are TBA. Go Lions!

TCS 4-6 Lions Basketball Team

Learning anything new is always a journey and if it’s a game, it’s through both wins and losses.  Our game with Waolani Judd, last Friday, was another learning experience in how to travel, focus, deal with a skilled big-man in the middle, and trust your teammates.  It took us a few quarters to realize we could play our game and succeed but once we did, we were able to quickly narrow the gap.  Unfortunately, we ran out of time and lost by about ten points.  If you only judge the quality of a game by wins or losses, you miss out on seeing the huge steps each Lion player is making as an individual and as a teammate.  These Lions are a joy to coach and watch them develop their game.
