The tennis Rocks claimed the Seventh Region championship May 7 and will advance to the state tournament.   Trinity outpointed runner-up Ballard 13-10.      

The doubles final was an all-Trinity affair, with junior Mustafa Gardezi and senior Wes Tolsdorf topping sophomore Tommy McConville and junior Austin Strause 6-3, 6-2.


The Rocks dominated the competition and won the Louisville City Championships May 6 with an evenly balanced and poised team effort.

Kyle Smith had a huge night, scoring in both the 100- and 200-meter dashes and anchoring the winning 800 relay team.

Santo Biddix won the triple jump competition, and Cody Swabek cleared 6-6 in the high jump and scored in the pole vault and long jump. 

Adam King and Caleb Costin placed second and third, respectively, in the discus.

Middle-distance runners Nick Finney and Phil Sandman took big chunks off their personal bests in the 800 meters.

Nick Eckert placed second in the mile and the 400 meters.

Trinity had three of the top six runners in Aaron Gilcrease, Ahmad Johnson and Patrick Martinette. 

The Rocks move on to compete in the regional and state tournaments.
