Here’s the whole championship bracket


Here’s an explanation of Sections and Classes:

Classification is determined by the number of students in a high school. In soccer, the largest class is 4A (think schools the size of Mt. Lebanon, Upper St. Clair, or Penn Trafford). Trinity, Eden, and Beaver County Christian School are all in 1A.

In Class 1A, Trinity is grouped in Section 2, and as such, plays the teams in Section 2 twice a season and those games determine their record. (In other words, those are their conference games.) In Section 2, they came in 2nd place, after Greensburg Central Catholic, with a conference record of 6-3-1. (6 wins, 3 losses, and 1 tie.)

BCCS is grouped in Section 1. In Section 1, they came in 3rd place with a conference record of 5-5.
Eden is grouped in Section 3. In Section 3, they came in 2nd with a conference record of 10-2.

In all of Class 1A (all teams listed in the chart below), Trinity Christian School is ranked 6th out of the 16 teams who made it to the playoffs. They will be playing Riverside (ranked 11th with a record of 5-5-0). BCCS is ranked 13th and will be playing Bentworth (ranked 4th with a record of 9-0-1). Eden is ranked 5th and will be playing Serra Catholic (ranked 12th with a record of 5-3-2).

The bracket shows the path to the WPIAL Championship (likely on November 5 at 8pm but subject to change) at Highmark Stadium where the Riverhounds play.

Trinity Christian School WPIAL Individual Championships Results (Someone’s Going to States!)

On Wednesday, May 19th Trinity Christian School’s Track and Field sent seven athletes and an alternate to the WPIAL Individual Championship at Slippery Rock University. The athletes had to earn a spot in their regular season to compete in this regional Championship–and here they competed for a spot at the state PIAA Championships, which will be held May 28 at Shippensburg University.

Senior Michael Ifidon took third place with a time of 11.40 in the 100m (1/4 of a lap around a track) to earn a spot at State Championships!

Freshman Joshua Maurer took seventh place with a time of 52.10 in the 400m (1/4 of a mile or 1 lap around the track)!

The 4X800m Relay Team was made up of freshmen Anderson Beck and Nathan Fu and sophomores Zeke Sams and Benjamin Gaunt (with junior Tommy Nelson as an alternate). The 4X800 Relay is a race where each person on a team of four runs two laps (1/2 a mile) before handing off the track baton to their next teammate who then takes off for his two laps, until the fourth runner finishes the race. Their time was 9:13.14 and they placed eleventh.

Senior Brett White in Discus threw for 126-01.00 and placed tenth.
