The Pride is back from their three-week vacation, and the spring athletic season is now fully underway.

Over the break the lacrosse team traveled down to Philadelphia to scrimmage three teams from the tri-state area. The Pride faced off against the Episcopal Churchmen, the Chestnut Hill Blue Devils, and the Tower Hill Hillers from Delaware.

Forty members of the team then traveled down the east coast to Orlando, Florida to practice in the warm temperatures and scrimmage the University of Tampa, a Division-2 college team.

Head coach, Nic Bell commented, “I am really pleased with how our upperclassman lead the way for the younger guys and set good examples on both trips. It has been a very positive and productive start for the team, and the trip to Florida was the best spring trip I have had in my five years at Trinity-Pawling.”

The lacrosse team will play their first game of the season this upcoming Saturday against West Point Prep at home beginning at 2:00 pm.

The varsity baseball team also made their way down to Florida to play five scrimmages at the “Florida Coast Spring Training” in Fort Pierce. The young team, with only a few seniors to speak of, was able to hold their own in the practice games and come away with a great deal of runs and solid pitching performances.

Upon returning to Trinity-Pawling, the baseball team played another scrimmage against Hopkins this past Wednesday. With a couple players still not back from vacation, the Pride was able to play competitively with solid performances from juniors Forrest Ruiz and senior pitcher Will Rickert.

The first game for the baseball team will be Monday, April 4th at the Canterbury School.

Golf and Track will not open their respective seasons until Saturday, April 16th, and Tennis will start competition on Wednesday, April 13 at home against Millbrook.

Roll Pride!
