Winter Sports Round-up
Athletic teams at Trine continue to make strides. Winter sports are no exception.
In their fourth official season, Trine wrestlers finished 11-5 in dual meets, including a come-from-behind win over NCAA Division II rival University of Indianapolis.
The Thunder garnered their first national ranking, climbing as high as No. 22 in December. In February, Trine hosted the Midwest Regional , with 10 of the best programs from Michigan, Indiana, Ohio, and Pennsylvania converging on Hershey Hall. When the dust settled, Trine tied for second with Olivet. Second-ranked Delaware Valley claimed top honors. Kyle Long (165) and Louis Posa (184) finished second at the tournament, narrowly missing a chance to advance to the NCAA Division III National Championships.
Women’s basketball finished 12-13, 9-7 in the MIAA. The Lady Thunder earned a fourth seed and hosted their first MIAA tournament game in February, putting together the best season by far since joining the NCAA.
In January, Sarah Howe joined the 1,000 point club. The team also said good-bye to seniors Rachel Grove, Kara Grove and Jordan Loveberry.
The men’s basketball team ended 2008-09 with a 7-19, 3-11 MIAA record and high hopes for next season.
Ten of the top players return, including leading scorer Wes Weir and a number of talented underclassmen. It was a roller-coaster season, with some good play against league leaders and a win at the College of Staten Island Tournament of Fallen Heroes in December.
