Trinity College Bantams
2021-2022 SEASON PREVIEW
- Hall of Fame coaches Wendy Bartlett and Paul Assaiante lead their extremely talented teams into battle this season after a full year off from competition.
- Both teams have a formidable mix of strong returning players and experienced incoming recruits who should have them right in the mix for a top spot in the rankings throughout the season.
- While the women’s team has lost four All-America selections to recent graduations, they return several starters from 2020 to lead the championship-level effort.
- The Trinity men also graduated some high octane players, but top player Miko Aijanen will anchor a young, talented, and hungry unit.
