Varsity Girls Basketball has become the first Trinity team in school history to win a state championship.
In the final game on Saturday against San Fernando High School, the Varsity Knights' defense was the key to success, as it has been all year. Kelly Lotz led the scoring with 32 points and 10 rebounds; Lily Caddow added 10 points, 7 rebounds, and 5 assists; and Katie Brown's defense was incredible inside. She had 4 points, 10 rebounds, and she held down San Fernando’s leading scorer. The final score was 49-33.
In James DeMonbrun's first year as the Girls' coach, he said, “This is an incredible group of kids. From a basketball perspective, they committed themselves to get things done defensively. We only play one kind of defense, man-to-man. We knew that if we could get stops, we could run in transition, and that’s where we would thrive. This group is selfless, inclusive, silly, and just plain fun to be around. I couldn’t be more proud of them. I’m humbled the Lord has given me an opportunity to coach these girls.”
Trinity began its high school athletics program in 2009 with only freshmen and sophomores and just a handful of sports. Varsity Girls Basketball didn't get their start until 2013-14, so that program is only 7 years young. In the past three years, the girls have gone undefeated in league to be Heritage League champions. Moving on from league champs this year, the girls won the CIF-SS Championship, Div. 5AA and topped off the season with the Regional/State championship for Div. 5A.
