Trinity High School is a private, coeducational Roman Catholic high school of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Harrisburg, located in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania, west of Harrisburg. The school has 55 faculty members and an enrollment of about 525 students in grades 9 through 12.[2] The school was twice listed (1992, 1999) as a Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education. The school's mascot is the Shamrock.[3]

Athletics[edit]

Trinity is a part of the PIAA District III and the Mid Penn Conference. It has been known for its athletics for many years. The boys and girls basketball teams have claimed multiple PIAA State Championships as well as several District Championships. The boys Track and Field teams won two straight PIAA State Championships in 2010 and 2011. The girls soccer team was the runner up in the 2010 and 2013 PIAA State tournaments before winning their first title in 2014 and repeating as state champions in 2015. Athletes from Trinity High School also won PIAA state gold in boys cross country (2010) and girls diving (2011).

Controversy[edit]

In 2011, Trinity was the subject of a major police investigation after a sexual harassment incident involving a pizza was reported at the football team's training camp. A number of Trinity students who were identified as the perpetrators of the event were subsequently prosecuted.[4]

The Trinity football program came under fire once again for off-season misconduct in 2016 after two alleged team members were captured on video assaulting a man at a Donald Trump rally at neighboring Cumberland Valley High School. [5] Sanctions from law enforcement and school officials against the implicated players have yet to be determined.
