Powell hired at Trinity

To get the Trinity High School wrestling program back to elite status, the school board hired a head coach at Thursday’s school board meeting who is familiar with the program: Mark Powell.
The 27-year-old Powell walked the same halls, studied in the same classes and competed in the same gymnasium as the current crop of Hillers. Not only is Powell a Trinity graduate, he competed on the 2002 team that won a WPIAL Class AAA Team Tournament title and finished second in the PIAA tournament.
"I have lofty goals," said Powell. "You have to set high goals to be successful. Ultimately, we want to win championships."
Powell replaces Mike Marino, who resigned in May. Marino did a good job rebuilding a program that had dramatically slipped since Powell left. Powell wants to continue that progress.
