Trigo was a standout hurdler at Cardinal Hayes (1958-62) in the Bronx. As a senior in ’62, he established a New York Catholic High School A.A. outdoor record in 1962 with a time of 19.2 seconds in the 180-yard low hurdles.

He earned an athletic scholarship to Manhattan College and won the 400-meter hurdles at Randall’s Island as a freshman. He was honored as Most Improved Athlete as a junior. In his senior season, when the Jaspers won the Metropolitan Championship, Trigo competed in the high and intermediate hurdles and the 200 meters, and was the lead off runner in the mile relay.

In 1989, Trigo re-entered the field of competition, running in meets along the East Coast on the U.S. Masters circuit. He won silver in the 400 hurdles at the national championship meet in San Diego, and two weeks later he took home bronze in the world championship meet in Eugene, Ore.

Trigo will join his daughter, Maureen, who was inducted in 2007 and again in 2017 as a member of Mercy’s 1994 championship softball team.
