Warrior Watch

Trinity Prestash

Trinity Prestash, Staff Writer

Hi I'm Trinity Prestash. I'm a senior at West Branch Area High School. I play soccer and track for the school. I also play soccer on a club team called MDU, we travel and play throughout the east coast. I would like to play soccer and attend college to become a Pediatric Surgeon. I also love math and sciences.
