Trinity College Bantams
2022-2023 Season Preview
- Much like their traditional rivals Princeton, the Trinity teams had a string of bad luck at the wrong time last season which impacted their performances at the team championships.
- After losing only two starters to graduation and gaining a few high-level recruits, the Bantam women will be very strong contenders for a national championship this season. The difficult loss to upstart Drexel in last season’s national semifinals will surely weigh on their minds as they prepare for this season.
- Trinity’s men are a deep squad and interchangeable talent throughout the top half of the ladder. Losing All-American Miko Aijanen to graduation is a tough blow, but the team will know that their five wins can come from anywhere in the lineup on any day.
