Hitting a baseball is extremely difficult, almost as difficult as describing what it feels like. “There’s no analogy to hitting. I can use adjectives, but I don’t even know if those work,” said junior third baseman John Tucker. “It’s honestly an indescribable feeling.” In his 18 years at the plate, Tucker has faced collegiate aces and summer-league relievers. He’s been walked by high school closers and by select team southpaws. He’s hit off of coaches, machines...

Tigers dove into success at the SCAC championship tournament this weekend, claiming the title over six schools. The women’s team took first place by 72 points while the men’s team produced a 161 point win. “We had taken some hard hits from injuries and the like; ultimately, it tested everyone, but I couldn’t have been happier with the outcome,” said sophomore Elliott Fleming, who earned all SCAC honors in the men’s 200 meter breaststroke, finishing with...

The Tiger swimming and diving teams made quite a splash last semester and are currently gearing up for the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC) Championships, which will be held in Dallas on Feb. 14–17. Both the men and the women will be defending their titles after taking home the SCAC championship last season. The teams started off their season strong with a meet against University of Puget Sound, where the women won 123–88 and the men...

From the outside, many varsity teams at Trinity look the same. Winning histories and coaches with tenure make up a large portion of our athletic programs. Back-to-back conference championships are common, as are offensive and defensive player-of-the-year awards. One team, however, stands above the rest. Trinity men’s soccer has been nothing short of dominant since the hire of head coach Paul McGinlay 26 years ago, in 1991. McGinlay is one of the best active soccer coaches in the...

Sometimes it’s not the stars of the team that deserve the attention. Sometimes it’s the guy who wasn’t born with natural talent, but who has clawed and fought his way to reach the top. Andy Cottrell is a junior on the Trinity cross-country and track teams. Over the course of the past five years, Cottrell has run thousands of miles to get to where he is today and has faced many obstacles, but persevered nonetheless....

The Trinity University women’s soccer team can score more in a single game than some competitors score in an entire season. The Tigers, 21-time Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC) champions, play one moment at a time while staying aware of and prepared for the future. With each goal they score, the Tigers work toward a higher goal. “We’re taking it one game at a time right now and always focus on our next game,” said...

For most Tigers, the month of May signals one thing and one thing only: the start of summer. Yet, for a few Tiger athletes, the month of May brings on a whole new meaning. May is championship season. Last spring, several track and field athletes competed in the NCAA Division III Outdoor Track & Field Championships. Matthew Love, a senior from New Braunfels, Texas, represented Trinity in the men’s discus. Love finished in 11th place...
