Midsummer Night’s Run

Several members of the Trinity Christian Academy community competed in the Midsummer Night’s Run on Saturday, Aug. 13, in downtown Lexington. Almost 2,000 runners and walkers were in the field, including several current Cross Country team members, alumni, parents and siblings.  
In team competition, TeamTrinity was made up of current and former Trinity Cross Country members: Isaac Rowe, Jacob Coffey, Nicholas Rowe, and Elijah Cardona. They finished 6th out of 66 teams!
Individually, Jacob Coffey and Jenna Raye Hopper were our top Varsity performers while Graham Calihan was our top Lower School performer. Great job!
