Trinity Wilson sidelined this month

St. Mary’s High track star Trinity Wilson will not be able to race for the rest of this month due to a toe injury suffered at the Stanford Invitational, her mother Andrea confirmed in a text to me this afternoon.

Trinity suffered the injury to the big toe of her left foot, Andrea wrote. It occurred in a preliminary heat of the girls 100-meter high hurdles at the Stanford Invitational on April 7. Trinity won the race in 13.41 seconds (wind-legal), the fastest high school time in the nation this season according to the DyeStat Elite 100 rankings.

Andrea wrote that Trinity has to wear an orthopedic shoe and uses crutches to allow the injury to heal. “Hopefully she will be ready by the league trials,” Andrea wrote. The Bay Shore Athletic League track and field trials are scheduled for May 10.

Trinity won the California Interscholastic Federation state championship 100 hurdles title in 2011 to end her high school season and proceeded over the next two months to also win 100 hurdles titles at the USA Junior Outdoor Championships, the World Youth Championships and the Pan-American Junior Championships. Her time at the USA Junior Outdoor Championships, a wind-legal 13.15 seconds, ranked No. 1 in the event among national high school female athletes in 2011.
