Hailing from Euless, Texas, redshirt freshman Trinity Oliver was set to continue her high-school momentum at Baylor University until a knee injury sidelined her after just seven games.
But before that damaged ACL, Oliver was averaging 2.1 rebounds and 3.3 points per game. Her contributions in her 2017-18 freshman year include scoring seven points against Missouri State, putting together two assists that led to six points against UCLA, and catching six rebounds against Lamar University.
In 2018, she was named to the Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor Roll and to the Big 12 All-Rookie Team.
After graduating from Trinity High School in Euless, Oliver’s college bio states three other schools recruited her, including Kansas State, Texas Tech and Oklahoma State. Instead, she chose to study exercise physiology with Baylor.
During high school, Oliver was three times designated TGCA All-State and twice named TABC Girls’ All-State 6A. She progressed from 2014 6-5A Newcomer of the Year to District 7-6A Defensive Player of the Year in 2015 and earned the title of Fort Worth Star’s Player of the Year in 2016.
Her parents Lula Seaton and Ronald Oliver, as well as her sisters Jaylah and Aubrey, are waiting for her quick recovery so they can cheer her on from the sidelines once again.
