Trinity Christian School Varsity Track and Field at WPIAL Individual Championships Today, Wednesday, May 19

A few of our schools belong to several sport leagues–different ones for different sports. For Track and Field, many of our junior highs and senior highs belong to SWCAC. However, Trinity Christian School belongs to WPIAL. WPIAL is the biggest league in Western Pennsylvania and the one that is a part of the PIAA, the biggest league in all of Pennsylvania.

Trinity Christian School competes in WPIAL against public schools and a few other private schools.

In Track and Field, Trinity joins Clairton, East Allegheny, Neighborhood Academy, Riverview, Shady Side Academy, and Springdale to make up the AA Section 4.

For Individual Championships, WPIAL accepts the top 16 players from each section in each event. The Trinity students who are in that top 16 and who are competing in the WPIAL Individual Championships today are as follows:

  • 100m  Michael Ifidon
  • 400m Joshua Maurer
  • 4X800m Relay (Anderson Beck, Zeke Sams, Nathan Fu, Benjamin Gaunt, Alt: Tommy Nelson)
  • Discus Brett White

    These athletes have been coached by veteran coaches David Jones and Jim Hommes, and assistant coach and TCS alum, Noah Smith. You can find these Championship-attending athletes listed in the WPIAL Track and Field Digital Program. And you can follow the scores live here!

    Greater Pittsburgh Christian Schools Network is extremely proud of these young athletes and we wish them all the fun and success today!

One newsworthy note about one of those Championship goers: This year against Shade Side Academy, Senior Brett White not only took first place by throwing the discus 135’03.00,” but also broke his own school record by 23 feet.
Thanks to TCS for the graphic!
