Sports Information

The Trine University sports information office is dedicated to serving the student-athletes, coaching staff and administration of Trine University as well as the media covering Thunder Athletics. The sports information office strives to improve the student-athlete experience at Trine by promoting the Thunder in print, radio, television and internet media. While serving as a publicist for Thunder Athletics, the sports information office is also dedicated to accurate statistical records of current and past Thunder seasons.

The sports information staff's role as a member of the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association and National Collegiate Athletic Association is of utmost importance as timely, accurate reporting of results and statistics is crucial.

The sports information office is here to serve the student-athletes, coaches and administration of Trine University, as well as the media that we are fortunate enough to accommodate. Any media wishing to receive post-game releases please call or email the SID department. Any media wishing to request a credential for any Trine home event must contact the SID department at least 24 hours in advance or accommodations can not be guaranteed.
