We're working toward Spring Break! Here's a Trinidad State update that will take Just a Minute!
Trojans excel in winter sports
Last weekend was so exciting in the world of Trojan sports. Our Women's Basketball Team defeated Laramie County 76-64 on Friday night. Then Saturday night our Men's Basketball Team won a double-overtime nail biter over North Platte 72-68. It was a memorable weekend in Scott Gym. Both teams now move on to the Elite Eight in NJCAA Region IX.

INDOOR TRACK & FIELD
Meanwhile in Lubbock, Texas our Trojans were shining at the 2018 NJCAA National Indoor Meet. Our women finished 25th and our men ended up in sixth place. Trojan Freshman Derek Holdsworth finished first in the mile and the 800 meter run. Incredibly those races were run just minutes apart! Our men's distance medley team finished second and Daniel Haymes finished fourth in both the mile and the 3000 meter run.
