For the 2011-2012 school year, Trinity is adding two club sports: Softball and Cross-Country! Cross Country will be offered in the fall. Softball will be offered in the spring.
Cross Country will start in the fall. We will have an interest meeting during orientation and then again when school starts.
Softball will start next spring. There will be an interest meeting at some point this fall with more details. We have not finalized practices or games yet.
Softball is a team sport similar to baseball. Fast-pitch softball is the most competitive form of softball. It was played at the Olympic summer games in 1996, 2000, 2004, and 2008. Softball pitchers can throw with speeds up to 75 miles per hour.
Cross Country running differs from track competitions, because cross country runners race outside, over natural terrain. Natural terrain can include woodlands and open fields, both flat and hilly trails. It is both a team and individual sport. As David Tiefenthaler notes on his website, “There isn’t any other sport out there where all the competitors and teams line up at the same time to find one winning runner and one winning team.” (http://www.tips4running.com/Cross-Country-Running-Tips.html)

On Tuesday afternoon a group of Trinity student-athletes attended the announcement by Vice President Biden regarding changes to Title IX. Surrounded by women athletes and Olympians Vice President Biden announced that the Obama administration is rolling back a controversial Title IX compliance requirement enacted under the Bush administration.
The 2005 policy allowed schools to rely on a survey to prove they were meeting interest in athletic programs for women. If female students failed to respond to the survey, schools were allowed to conclude that women were not interested in additional athletic programs and had no obligation to provide them. The new Education Department policy will require schools to provide stronger evidence that they are complying with Title IX.
