TRINITY CLUB OF HARTFORD TROPHY
Endowed by the Trinity Club of Hartford, this award is comparable in every way to the McCook Trophy. The recipient is selected by vote of the same committee of faculty and captains of varsity teams. The winner must be a senior woman of good scholastic standing and with distinction in athletics. Like the McCook winner, she must have shown diligence and conscientiousness in drill, training, discipline, and dependability in practice, courtesy, self-control, uprightness and honor.
THE GEORGE SHELDON McCOOK TROPHY
This award is a gift given by George Sheldon McCook's parents in 1902 to honor the memory of their son, Class of 1897. He was a member of the football, basketball, and baseball teams and president of his class. Following graduation, he fought in the Spanish-American war, went to Paris for post-graduate study, and died there after a short illness. The recipient is selected annually by a committee of the faculty and the captains of all varsity teams. He must be a senior who exhibits diligence, conscientiousness, courtesy, self-control, and honor at all times, especially in athletic sports and contests. The winner's name is engraved on a silver bar which is attached to the trophy.
