An impressive trophy with a net draped across one corner dominated the table as Louisville and St. Matthews government representatives, including Trinity alumnus Mayor Greg Fischer, lauded the two-time state champion basketball Rocks at an assembly Mar. 25 in Steinhauser Gymnasium.  

The Rocks knocked off the Scott County Cardinals 50-40 to claim the 2019 KHSAA Sweet 16 Boys Basketball State Championship. The 29-8 Rocks had previously captured the LIT championship and the Seventh Region crown. This state championship was the second in the Mike Szabo era of Trinity basketball — the first in 2012.

Athletics Director Rob Saxton congratulated head coach Szabo, assistant coaches James Torra, Bret Saxton, Chris Toth, Curtis Williams, Andrew Weber, Tyler Robertson, Jarrett Harness and Ish Burks, along with trainers Audrey Baricovich and Bill Cubbage, strength and conditioning coach Mike Snyder and the entire basketball team, led by seniors David Johnson, Stan Turnier, Jamil Hardaway, Kolton Rice, Kamari Kenemore and Dylan Carson.

Saxton also thanked “the Trinity student section and all of Rock Nation for their support this season. Our fans were loud and proud.”
