This past Saturday, April 20 and Sunday, April 21 featured an exciting weekend of spring sport competition for the Bantams, with five home games or meets to attend on campus. The event-packed Saturday began with the Trinity Invitational; this event is the only home meet hosted by the men’s and women’s track teams this season, so it served as both their senior day and inclusion meet. The men’s team placed second and the women’s team placed third, both competing against 13 other teams in the region. 

Beginning on Friday, April 26, the baseball team traveled to Medford, MA to compete against the Tufts University Jumbos. In the first game, Tufts scored all six of their runs in the first three innings. At the top of the fourth, Trinity added its first three consecutive runs on the board after a home run over right field by Jack Ryan ’24. The Bantams added their fourth run after Jack Matthews ’24 had an RBI at the top of the ninth, for a final score of 6-4 in Tufts’ favor. On Saturday, the Bantams had an early lead of 3-0 heading into the third inning. The team fell short in the bottom of the sixth, allowing four runs for the Jumbos who clinched the final series game 5-4.

Men’s golf headed to Williamstown, MA for the Williams Spring Invitational and finished strong on day one, leading the invitational by one point ahead of its hosts. The Bantams could not hold on to the lead and ultimately placed second with 588 strokes total behind Williams College with 586 strokes. Trinity’s Benjamin Boyd ’25 placed first overall, hitting 2-under on day one and 2-over on day two for a total score of 142. 

Women’s golf placed 17th in the Jack Leaman Invitational, with Trinity’s Koto Freeman ’27 and Lauren Calvillo ’25 tied for 71st. 

Women’s tennis competed against Colby College in Waterville, ME for a final score of 8-1 in Colby’s favor on Saturday. Trinity’s Madison Bolig ‘26 won her singles match 7-5 and 6-1. On Sunday, the team took to Brunswick, ME for a match against Bowdoin College and fell 9-0 on the road. 

Men’s tennis also fell to Colby and Bowdoin during their weekend in Maine. The team lost 8-1 to the Mules, with Luca Garbati ’27 earning a win in singles 6-1 and 6-1. Against Bowdoin, the team was defeated 7-2, with Eduardo Sanchez-Carrion ’24 winning his singles match 1-6, 6-4 and 1-0 and Garbati winning in singles again with scores 1-6, 6-2 and 1-0. 

Men’s lacrosse beat Connecticut College away in New London, CT 10-8 on Wednesday, April 17th. On Saturday, however, the Bantams were defeated by the Panthers at home 15-7. The teams were tied going into the fourth quarter, but eight late goals for Middlebury sent them home with a win over the Bantams. 

Softball split with Colby College at home, winning their first game 5-2 and falling to the Mules in game two, who clinched 8-7 in extra innings. Soon after, the team took a bus to Middlebury, VT to take on the Panthers for a Sunday double-header. The Bantams split again, winning their first game 2-1 and falling to the Panthers 10-0 for the second and final game of the series. The team will be home this Wednesday, April 24 for a matchup against Westfield State University at 3 p.m. and 5 p.m.
