On July 30, Notre Dame Academy hosted the annual Three Rivers Athletic Conference fall sports pre-season coaches meeting. Athletic Directors from each TRAC member school and the coaches for all nine boys and girls varsity sports attended the event which featured the introduction of Mike Richards, the new conference commissioner.
After a brief presentation by former commissioner Ken Myers to the entire assembly, the coaches split into individual groups according to their particular sport to discuss such topics as their upcoming seasons, new rule changes implemented by the Ohio High School Athletic Association, and TRAC tournament formats.
Every coach for each sport gave a brief presentation on their team’s prospects for the new season. This gave the new coaches in the conference the opportunity to introduce themselves to their colleagues.
A pre-season poll of the coaches was conducted for each sport during these meetings. The poll results are as follows:
