After having lost their fall and winter 2021 seasons to complications brought on by the pandemic, these teams are lucky to be back in competition again and taking home all the wins.
The women’s basketball team has played a total of four games so far this season. They played Connecticut College twice, and defeated them the first time, 60-51, but lost the second time around, 49-66. This weekend, the Bantams faced the University of Saint Joseph Blue Jays twice, defeating them on Mar. 27, 76-54, and again on Mar. 28; this time 58-33. Their next game will be on Apr. 10 at 1 p.m., and they will go against Roger Williams University in Bristol, Rhode Island.
Men’s ice hockey has played a total of two games and have won both times, giving them a current record of 2-0. This previous weekend they faced Connecticut College twice. On Mar. 27, they defeated the Camels 4-3, and on Mar. 28, they demolished them 6 to 2! They will play the Camels again this upcoming Sat. Apr. 3 at 2 p.m. in New London, Connecticut.
Women’s ice hockey faced Connecticut College as well, defeating them in a shootout on Mar. 27, but losing by only one to them on Mar. 28. Martha Peppes ’21, captain of the team, scored the stunning game-winning shootout goal on this past Saturday, Mar. 27. Just like the men’s team, the women’s team will face Connecticut College for a third time this upcoming weekend, on Saturday, Apr. 3 at 2 p.m. in Trinity’s Koeppel Community Sports Center.
The men’s soccer team played against Albertus Magnus College bright and early this past Saturday at 10 a.m. The game went into overtime, when Matt Moran ’23 scored and defeated Albertus Magnus, 1-0. James Michielli ’23, who is number 18 on the field, shared with the Tripod that he “thinks the most rewarding thing about yesterday’s game was seeing the pride and happiness on everyone’s face to be able to play with the Trinity shirt on our backs.
He expanded on the shift in attitudes from last year to this year, and noted that players are thankful, “given everything’s that’s happened over the last year and a half almost I know we’re all really grateful to have each other, our coaches included. We’re taking this chance to show the rest of the NESCAC what Trinity men’s soccer really means.” These Bantams will be playing on their home field on Apr. 2 at 7 p.m. against the University of Saint Joseph, and again on Apr. 3 at 7 p.m. against Connecticut College. So, come out and support them and all your other fellow Bantams as they finally get to compete again!
At the moment, no outside spectators are currently permitted at any Trinity College home sports competitions, but with any luck, everyone, families and rivalries alike, will be able to be cheering for all our Bantam teams from the sidelines soon enough. Some of the action can also be caught online.
