The Trinity Troll, one of the most unique mascots in all of college sports, has received a new look. While the Troll remains easily recognizable, the redesign reflects the College's commitment to adapting to changing times while staying true to her roots.

"The Troll has been the symbol of Trinity Christian College since our very beginnings, and it continues to represent an integral part of who we are," said President Kurt D. Dykstra. "Though the image may change, we will always be proud to call ourselves Troll Nation."

The new Troll, designed by Trinity's Senior Graphic Designer Pete Vega, was unveiled on August 25 during a women's volleyball match between Trinity and Mount Mercy University of Cedar Rapids, Iowa.

A sold-out crowd witnessed a video that highlighted past versions of the Troll and introduced the latest iteration. The video was narrated by Wayne Messmer, nationally recognized as the "voice of the national anthem" for the Chicago Cubs and other professional sports teams. The new image was then revealed on a banner gracing the wall of the DeVos Gymnasium. The occasion marked the first significant redesign of the Troll since the 1990s. 

"The Athletics Department is exceedingly grateful to all who contributed to updating our Troll mascot and athletics logos as well as putting on a wonderful unveiling event," said Bill Schepel '85, Head Women's Volleyball Coach and Trinity's Athletics Director.

The history of the Troll dates back to the early days of Palos Heights, Ill., when a troll guarded the golf course where the College now stands. As the College has grown, so has the Troll's reputation. In 2009, ESPN named the Troll one of the 10 best college nicknames in college sports.
