Two Trinity students have won titles at the NSW cross country championships while a further 18 gained representative honours in rugby, AFL, cross country, and volleyball.

Max Meagher (12Hi) gained selection in the CAS Opens rugby first team, Marcus Mastro (11Mu), Brock Prideaux (11WH), and Patrick Thomson (11Sc) made the seconds, and Jozef Cluff (10Ar) and Daniel Villate-Gallagher were chosen in the U16s.
