Trinity College Announces 23 Incoming Athletes For 2017-18 Season

The Trinity College Swimming and Diving Programs, led by Head Coach Carlos Vega (4th season), have announced their 23-member incoming first-year class as they arrive on campus for the fall semester on Thursday. The new class, featuring 10 women’s team members and 13 men’s team members, comes from a diverse background, representing 12 states and spanning four countries.

“The Class of 2021 features an incredible mix of versatility and talent from all parts of the world, that will add to our returning core,” said Coach Vega. “We are excited to welcome this group of Bantams to the Coop and continue to grow as a team.”

Last winter, the men’s program saw a program-best, seventh-place finish and their highest point total (617) at the NESCAC Swimming and Diving Championship Meet while Vega was named NESCAC Coach of the Year as well. The squad was 7-3 in dual meets, after going 2-7-1 in 2015-16, and set 14 new team records.

The women’s team had a successful season as well, finishing with four more wins than the previous winter, and numerous career and college-best performances at the NESCAC Championships at the end of the year.
