Trinity College, Hartford, writes in a press release:
Trinity College, Hartford men’s rowing senior co-captain Charles Tuckwell (Melbourne, Australia) was named to the 2017 National Invitational Rowing Championships (NIRC) All-Stewards Team, while senior co-captain Luke Taylor (Woodinville, Washington) graced the New England Small College Athletic Conference (NESCAC) Men’s Rowing All-Conference First Team, and Tuckwell made the All-NESCAC Second Team. Coaches nominated one student-athlete for recognition on the NIRC All-Stewards Team, while the 10-member All-NESCAC squads are comprised of individuals from the eight league teams based on each team’s finish at the NESCAC Championships, which are held in conjunction with the NIRC Regatta. The Bantams, led by Head Coach Kevin MacDermott (9th season), posted a 4-2 record in varsity-eight dual races and finished 12th at the New England Rowing Championships (NERC) Regatta and eighth (4th among NESCAC schools) at the NIRC Regatta this spring.
