Trinity Men's Swimming And Diving Features Deep And Talented Squad This Winter
Hartford, Conn. - The Trinity College men's swimming and diving team will open the 2010-11 season in a tri-meet with Bates at Wesleyan on Saturday, November 20. The Bantams, coached by Kristen Noone (10th season), have been training since November 1 in preparation for the upcoming season. The Bantams boast the largest team in recent history with a solid senior class teamed with an impressive mix of underclassmen and freshman prospects. Senior co-captains Andrew Boynton (Northampton, Mass.) and Ayaas Bhamla (Weston, Mass.), both in their second years as captains, are both top competitors in the water with evident leadership skills.
Trinity should be deep in most events, led by Boynton and freshman Ryan McCann (North Hampton, N.H.) in the backstroke. Boynton holds Trinity records in the back at both 50 and 100 yards, and adds the second-best time in College history at 200 yards. Bhamla provides points in several events, and fellow senior C.J. Murdoch (Gladwyne, Pa.) excels at several freestyle distances.
Junior Adam Eramo (Rowley, Mass.) and freshman Sean Greer (Fairfield, Conn.) are two top distance free specialists, while junior Dan Remigino (Wethersfield, Conn.) has been a top point-scorer in the sprints, and first-year sprinter Brandon Kelly (Westborough, Mass.) should make an immediate impact. Xiao Qi Ma (Nanjing, China) and Lucas Knight (Forest Hills, N.Y.) are also top Bantam rookies who will score points right away. Ma is best in the breaststroke and individual medley, and Knight will make his name in the breast and butterfly early. Junior diver Kyle Beek (Kingston, Jamaica) looks to build on a provisional qualifying performance that earned him all-NESCAC honors a year ago.
