It is He who made us, and we are His; we are His people, the sheep of His pasture. Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise; give thanks to Him and praise His name. For the Lord is good and His love endures forever; His faithfulness continues through all generations." Psalm 100 NIV

Men's Soccer WINS ONE, LOSES TWO
After a strong start to the week with a conference win last Wednesday, the Trolls lost their second conference game of the week on Saturday in the final minutes of play against the University of St. Francis (IL). This past Monday, in a non-conference game the Trolls hosted Southern Wesleyan University (SC), a team coached by Jonathan Lenarz '96, a former Trinity player and coach. Southern Wesleyan took a 2-0 half-time lead and held it throughout the second period for the final score. The loss drops the Trolls below the .500 mark again to a 6-7 record.
Volleyball Gets Two Victories
The weekend's action produced positive results for the Trolls as they picked up two wins in their three matches last weekend. On Friday they lost a three-game match at Saint Ambrose University (IA), but defeated Ashford University (IA) and MidAmerica Nazarene University (KS) on Saturday. The Trolls are now 5-21 for the season.
Women's Soccer Notches Two More Wins
