Members of Trinity College’s men’s club rugby team take to the field for a game against Williams College at Hartford’s Colt Park in October 2016. The Bantams came out on top 47–10 and went on to go 10–0 this past fall, winning the East Coast championship and securing a spot in the National Small College Rugby Organization Challenge Cup to be held in Cheswick, Pennsylvania, in April. Trinity will face Bethel College of Indiana in a semifinal matchup. Trinity’s team, open to any interested male students, is part of the College’s Recreation Program, which offers nearly two dozen club teams, several intramural squads, a variety of group fitness classes, and an active outdoor education program. The latter includes two weekly events and a larger trip each year. This past winter break, the College took a backpacking and canoeing trip to Big Bend National Park in Texas.
