Did you know?
On Saturday, March 8, 1986, the men’s basketball and hockey teams both won East Coast Athletic Conference Division III championships—making it one of the most extraordinary days in Trinity sports history. Ranked number one going into the playoffs, the basketball team defeated Southern Maine 52-50, wrapping up a 22-4 season and giving Coach Stan Ogrodnik his third straight championship in addition to his 100th career win. On the ice, the Bantams trounced Curry College, 5-1, finishing the season with a 22-5 record and giving Coach John Dunham his first championship.

In a sure sign that spring can’t be far off, groundskeeper Ramon Calderone paints a line on one of the athletic fields near Broad Street.
