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...

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 following account of the preceding events is based on interviews with Micah Weaver, Cameron Hill and Abby Holland, correspondences with Becca Gordon and Jillian Cready as well as this reporter’s own observations. Senior Micah Weaver goes to bed Friday night and wakes the next morning with the same thought racing through her mind: Game Day. Sophomore Abby Holland wakes up in her...

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...

Winner: Bird Bakery Finalists: Bakery Lorraine, Nothing Bundt Cakes OK, I get it — the cupcakes are delicious. The tables are twee. And the latte is filled with enough sugar to make it more dessert than coffee. But where the hell is Armie Hammer? I saw peach and blueberry cobblers, gluten-free brownies, even tomato pies, but no Armie, the husband of Bird Bakery founder Elizabeth Chambers. Known for his Parent Trap turn in “The Social...

In upsets, in walk offs, in protests, in saves of goalies, in touchdowns, in PKs, in rebounds, in calls, in five hundred twenty-five thousand six hundred minutes — How do you measure a year playing ball? At home in our own gyms and fields of Trinity University, Trinity has seen some great milestones this year. Trinity’s women’s basketball made a historic postseason run, making it as far as the NCAA Sectionals. Trinity legend John Ryan...

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...

At Trinity, junior Sarah Mullens has found her people, the trusted few to whom she can fully open up. For the rest of us though, the talented defensive hitter remains a mystery; a quiet introvert with a dark, sarcastic sense of humor and an untold story. She grew up in Aurora, Colorado, and started volleyball at the age of eight years old, with her mom as her coach. Even when she played for other coaches,...

A city once in ruin, submerged in the floodwaters of a hurricane, emerged to earn a historic World Series championship. Rewind to Aug. 31, 2017, when at noon, 34-year-old Justin Verlander signed with the Houston Astros. At 12:01 p.m. of the same day, 37 people were confirmed dead in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey. Tragedy often seems to motivate athletes. The Saints won the Super Bowl following Katrina, and the Red Sox won the World...
