Eight of 10 opponents will come from Kentucky

After loading its schedule with out-of-state opponents the past four years, the Trinity High School football team will return to a more local slate in the 2015 and 2016 seasons.

Trinity on Tuesday released its upcoming schedules, and eight of its 10 regular-season opponents will come from Kentucky in the next two seasons.

“We think our fans will enjoy these games,” Trinity athletic director Rob Saxton said in a news release. “There’s a nice blend of local and out-of-town opponents.”

Trinity will play in Class 6-A, District Four during the 2015-18 seasons, along with Jeffersontown, Eastern, Seneca and Ballard. Non-district opponents will include Class 6-A schools Lafayette, Male, Pleasure Ridge Park and St. Xavier. The out-of-state opponents both will come from Nashville, Tenn. — Ensworth and Brentwood Academy.

In both seasons, Trinity will use its open date in the final week of the regular season.

From 2011-14, Trinity’s only regular-season games against Kentucky competition came against “Super District” opponents Male, St. Xavier and Manual. The Shamrocks played nine-game regular-season schedules from 2011-13, including six out-of-state opponents. Trinity played a 10-game regular-season schedule last season, including seven out-of-state opponents.

The beefed-up schedule paid off in 2011 when the Shamrocks finished 14-0 and were declared champions in four of nine national rankings.

Here are the schedules for the next two seasons (*-district game):

* 2015: Aug. 21 – Nashville (Tenn.) Ensworth; Aug. 28 – at Nashville (Tenn.) Brentwood Academy; Sept. 4 – Lafayette; Sept. 11 – at Male; Sept. 18 – Pleasure Ridge Park; Sept. 25 – at Jeffersontown*; Oct. 2 – St. Xavier (at Papa John’s Cardinal Stadium); Oct. 9 – Eastern*; Oct. 16 – Seneca*; Oct. 23 – at Ballard*
