Trinity Receives Commissioner’s Cup!

Trinity Wins Commissioner’s Cup for 2017-18 Athletics

If you followed Trinity’s athletic teams last year, you know we had an outstanding year in so many areas. The National Athletic Association of Private Schools (NAAPS) took notice, and the organization has awarded Trinity the Commissioner’s Cup in our division for the 2017-18 athletic year! The Commissioner’s Cup recognizes overall excellence in private school athletics and is considered the most prestigious award an athletic program can win.

We will celebrate with an award presentation at the Lower School at 5:30 p.m., Friday, Oct. 5, during our Fall Festival, part of our Homecoming week activities.

At the end of the athletic calendar, each NAAPS member will have their top two scores from both male and female sports calculated. One school from each classification, with the highest total points from all four sports, will be awarded the Commissioner’s Cup for that school year. 

Point totals are earned when a private school is ranked in the final national rankings of any NAAPS sanctioned sport, national championship, All-Americans, All-Region, and state award winners.

This honor places Alexis among a select group of 300 MASTERS named from 2,537 entrants throughout the United States. It is a well-earned distinction that points to Alexis’s hard work and dedication.
