The Trinity basketball team had no trouble dispatching Proviso West in its home opener on Tuesday night, sending the Panthers packing for Hillside with a 56-40 win.

With senior Mikayla Leyden out of the lineup due to a minor injury, the Blazers (2-0) showed no signs of distress. They cruised to a 24-10 lead by halftime and led by as much as 25 in the final period. Taylor Nazon, who signed to play for Loyola last week, led Trinity with 19 points and nine rebounds. Lauren Prochaska added 15 points and seven assists, while Shannon McGinnis chipped in eight points and eight rebounds.

Trinity's freshmen got into the scoring books. Annie McKenna posted seven points, while Amber Reese hauled down five rebounds. Freshman Maryam Wilcher suffered a sprained ankle in the third quarter, but Trinity head coach Ed Stritzel said both Wilcher and Leyden are expected to return to the lineup sometime this week.

Trinity travels to Resurrection on Dec. 1 to begin Girls Catholic Athletic Conference action. The team welcomes Queen of Peace to the Sister Michelle Germanson Athletic Facility on Dec. 6 (7 p.m.).
