Cross-country kicked off the 2015 season at the Puget Sound Invitational on Saturday, Sept. 4. Both men's and women's teams qualified to compete at the National Christian College Athletic Association (NCCAA) cross-country championships in November.
On Aug. 28, Trinity Lutheran College freshman Breann Morren competed in her first colligate soccer game. The 2015 Arlington High School graduate scored three goals, known as a hat trick, propelling Trinity to a 5-0 win over Mills College in Oakland, Calif.
The Trinity Lutheran College Men’s Soccer Team opened their season with a home game on Aug. 28, against Trinity Western University (TWU) of Langley, British Columbia. Despite a loss, the Eagles showed heart, determination and potential.
The Trinity Lutheran College Women’s Soccer team swept the competition on a series of away games in California. They travelled to Oakland to play against Mills College and Anaheim to take on Bethesda University over the weekend.
With the start of the fall semester, the men’s Track and Field and Cross-Country teams have added 18 new athletes with the 2015 recruiting class. The class as a whole is well-rounded and includes every event group on the track. Seven men will also contribute to the cross-country program this fall. The recruit group is highlighted by a pair of 3A State finalists in Oak Harbor High School’s Dejon Devroe and Everett High School’s Griffey Lytle.
The Women’s Track and Field and Cross-Country programs have quite a few new faces this season. In total, fourteen women have joined the teams for the 2015-16 academic year. The class is heavy on distance runners and includes a handful of talented two-sport athletes who will also compete for the soccer program this fall.
Trinity Lutheran College is proud to announce another group of outstanding athletes who have officially signed to begin playing soccer for the 2015-16 season. This group is the second of what has been a banner year for women’s soccer recruiting to the college.
“Never before has the women’s soccer program at Trinity boasted such a large and talented group of players signing on to play,” said Head Women’s Coach Tim Colvin. “This group of young women represent a commitment to our local area and talent along with some very outstanding out of state players who will no doubt help our program develop and emerge in our region as one of the strongest small college soccer programs around.”
