Herr and Hurd Named Bantams of the Week

Herr and Hurd Named Bantams of the Week

Hartford, Conn. – With the winter athletics season coming to a close and three of Trinity’s teams competing in post-season play, the academic year’s 23 athletes of the week have been named due to their strong performances on the ice and the court as women’s ice hockey junior forward Cheeky Herr (Princeton, N.J.) and junior guard Andrew Hurd (Windsor, Conn.) of the men’s basketball team have been tabbed as the Bantams of the Week for their outstanding individual performances from March 2-8.

Each week, the Trinity athletics website spotlights two outstanding student-athletes - one male, one female - as the Bantams of the Week. Student-athletes are chosen based upon their efforts both on the field of competition.

Herr scored game-winning overtime goals in both the NESCAC Semifinals and Final, as the Bantams downed Amherst, 2-1, and Middlebury, 3-2, to capture the first NESCAC Championship in program history. She was also honored as the NESCAC Player of the Week for the second time this winter for her strong play as Trinity received the conference’s automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament. In the championship game versus the Panthers, Herr also scored the Bantams first goal of the game less than three minutes into play.

Hurd had a stellar weekend of play off the bench for the men’s basketball team as he averaged six points, five assists, three and a half steals and two and a half rebounds in a pair of Trinity wins to help the Bantams advance to this weekend’s Sweet 16. In the opening round of the NCAA Tournament, he knocked down a pair of three pointers, dished out five assists and recorded a game-high four steals to lead Trinity past Colby Sawyer, 60-55. He was on the court and pivotal role as the Bantams erased a 16-point first half deficit versus the Chargers. In the second round against Salisbury, he had a game-high five assists and contest-leading three steals as the Bantams topped the Seagulls, 60-47.
