Although the 1869 Challenge has ended, you can still make a difference in the lives of Trinity students.
Athletics

Varsity Athletics

 

More than 23 percent of Tigers participate in varsity sports. These scholar-athletes balance a competitive sports schedule with the academic rigor of a Trinity education, and they do it like champs: Tigers regularly earn Academic All-America Honors and NCAA postgraduate scholarships. Trinity has won five NCAA team championships as well as 16 NCAA individual national titles. 

 

Right now, these athletes are innovating new ways to study, train and compete. Your support will provide the resources needed to maintain an elite and safe Athletics experience that will keep them mentally and physically healthy. 

 

Our challenge: to keep our athletes sharp.
