Trinity’s men’s swimming and diving team posted a best-ever, seventh-place finish and its highest point total (617) at the NESCAC Championship Meet. The Bantams were 7–3 in dual meets this winter, after going 2–7–1 in 2015–16, and set 14 new team records. Trinity Head Coach Carlos Vega, in his third season, was named as the NESCAC Coach of the Year for the first time in his career; he also is the first Trinity coach to win the honor. Sophomore Nikola Kostic and first-year Liam Egan earned All-NESCAC honors thanks to their performances at the NESCAC Championships. Kostic was third in the 1,000-yard freestyle with a Trinity-record time of 9:32.41, and Egan was the 200-yard freestyle runner-up with a College-record time of 1:39.69.
