Being part of a team
Posted on July 20, 2012
School is beginning in a few short weeks, which means fall sports are just around the corner. This fall, Trinity will offer middle school and high school cross-country for both boys and girls, co-ed high school golf, 6 on 6 football, girls high school soccer, and middle school and high school girls volleyball. The 2012-13 school year will be the last year that the football and soccer teams will be using other facilities for practices and games. By the fall of 2013, both teams will have the new TCS athletic field to call “home”.
There has been tremendous progress made on the field since the last class was dismissed this past spring. The excavation phase was completed ahead of schedule by Anderson Excavating, LLC, with approximately 70,000 cubic yards of dirt excavated and placed. Currently, the field construction is taking place, which includes final field crowning and laser grading, irrigation and utilities installation, and seeding and mulching. The project is being funded entirely through private giving and does not impact the school’s operational budget.
The vision for the TCS athletic complex extends beyond being the home field for Trinity soccer and football, with plans of seeing the venue used for concerts and other community events. To that end, Trinity has already partnered with the Morgantown Lions, who will utilize the new complex in the fall of 2013. Trinity is grateful to be a part of a team that extends beyond our staff, our students, and our families, and reaches into the community.

This image, also taken before excavation was completed, gives an idea of the scope of the project, which included approximately eight acres of land.
