Column: Top plays of 2017

As 2017 comes to a close, it is safe to say that it has been yet another exhilarating year for Trinity athletics. Four spring teams snagged Southern Collegiate Athletic Association (SCAC) championships, including big wins by men’s and women’s tennis, women’s track and field, and women’s golf. This fall, four more teams captured SCAC championships including men’s and women’s soccer, men’s cross-country, and women’s cross-country.

A Balancing Act – trying to juggle school, sports, a social life and more

Wake up. Go to class. Grab a quick lunch as you run to practice. Leave it all out on the field for a good two or three hours. Drag yourself to the lib. Go to sleep. Repeat. I know. You’ve heard it a million times. You’ve read a thousand articles on The Odyssey, you’ve come across meme after meme on Facebook, and you’ve seen all of the jokes that flood Twitter.
