NATCHEZ — For the third time in five years, Trinity Episcopal School won the Mississippi Private School Association’s All-Sports Award for Class A.

“It’s a tremendous honor to be recognized,” athletic director David King said.

The All-Sports Award is given to the school that has the best over all athletic program.

Points are awarded based on where each sport places at the end of the season. For example, Trinity received 10 points for their first place finish in football and seven for their second place finish in track.

Trinity finished in the top four in seven of the 10 sports calculated.

“We don’t want to focus on just one or two sports,” King said. “We like to be well rounded in our athletic program.”

Trinity scored 10 points for football, two points for swimming, four points for cross country for girls and boys, two points for boy’s basketball and seven points for boy’s track.

Trinity moves up to Class AA for the next two years.

“Our goal is to be in the top three programs in Class AA for the next two years,” King said.
