Recently, the Trinity women’s club volleyball team has come away from a fairly successful season. The team, a member of the Southern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association, played against many Alamo...

Everyone knows college is hard, right? School challenges you, and professors sometimes push you to your limits with tests and excessive amounts of homework.

The student-athlete population is, quite possibly, made up of the most...

For those of you, and I would assume this is the majority of you, this seems like nothing. I mean, it is a just a shoe. But to some professional, non-Nike runners, this was blasphemous, and almost immediately people called...

For most athletics, competition is not a year-round job. The vast majority of student-athletes will have at least one semester a year that is considered to be an off-season. However, despite the misleading nature of the name, the off-season is certainly not “off,” and requires individual training and focus to ensure that the athlete will be ready to compete. Right now, football and volleyball are two of the sports that are stuck in the awkward...

It is a situation every student athlete knows all too well. Maybe it’s after a 6 a.m. practice, and you have 20 minutes to clean up before your 8:30 a.m. Or maybe you just finished an afternoon practice and need to get to a meeting. Whatever the case, the need to eat and refuel does not go away just because there is no time, and in these cases, supplements such as protein bars and shakes...
