Dear Friend, A year ago, I joked about not liking boys or girls and a friend — who is named after a container — responded by saying I might be asexual. He was right. I left lunch to Google “asexual” and text an old friend. (You don’t know her, but she’s named after a superhero.) That night I accepted the reality that I am asexual. I told a lot of people. Then I told you and...

The eight member schools of the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC) compete officially only in athletics. How do they stack up in other categories? Austin College  SPIRIT: ★★★★★★★★★☆ Both the Gryffindor-esque color scheme and the marsupial mascot of the crimson and gold Kangaroos are quite whimsical in nature, and I love these creative choices. SMARTS: ★★★★★★☆☆☆☆ Austin College, with a 53 percent acceptance rate, 69 percent four-year graduation rate and 13:1 student to faculty ratio, received 6/10...

Trinity Women’s Basketball defeated Austin College 95-82 last Saturday, Jan. 20. Micah Weaver scored 42 points, tying the Trinity single-game record.

The beauty of sports is that anything can happen. The endless possibilities of the games allows sports writers and fans many opportunities to make predictions. For the upcoming spring season here at Trinity, I, your favorite sports reporter, have some predictions of my own.  Get ready for track, the sport with the skinniest athletes since cross country, ’cause ladies and sport boys, track is back. This season will see one incredible moment, when, against all...

Buckle up boys and girls because your favorite ace reporter is here with a new recurring — or never again to be seen, depending on how well this goes over — segment dedicated to setting sport boys straight. You may be asking, “What about sport girls?” However there is no such thing as a sports girl. That would just be a female athlete. I’m here to set the sport boys straight on some common sayings that...

Sports are fake. Yes, they exist. Sport boys and girls are real people and they do the sport ball on real fields and real courts. The games are real. The teams are real. The rules are real. The strike zone is fake, but that’s another story. (OK, maybe the strike zone is real, but it kind of seems fluid depending on the umpire and also it’s invisible but so is God and we could argue...

At home in our own gyms and fields of Trinity University, Trinity has seen some great milestones this year.

Intramural sports, also known as IMs, have a great place in Trinity history. From NCAA athletes to the least athletic among us, Trinity students can enjoy the wide variety of IMs offered. “No skill is required and only a great attitude is needed,” said Kristen Harrison, Recreational Sports director. “Everyone’s out there for fun and competing to win that intramural t-shirt at the end of the semester.” Here’s a quick look at this season’s line...
