But Trinity Christian went fishing for ideas, they came up with its own unique fundraiser.

The Lions program recently held its inaugural Trinity Christian Fishing Tournament

A team of Daryl Adams and Trey Elsinger captured top honors in the tournament.

“We had numerous sponsors that helped make the event a success. I really appreciate their willingness to join us in our efforts to raise money for our program and players,” said Trinity head coach Chris Hanson of a list that included Better Way Signs, Coweta Sports Center, Chick-fil-A, Fish Hog Lures and Bill Leppo Insurance.

Hanson also wished to thank the parent volunteers and booster club members for their help with putting the event together.
