Hartford, Conn. - As we leave behind the month of February, this year's 23rd Bantams of the Week have been named, thanks to their strong performances on the track and squash courts. Women's indoor track and field junior Morgan Hallow (Charlotte, N.C.) and men's squash junior Tom De Mulder (Ghent, Belgium) have been named as the Bantams of the Week.
Each week, the Trinity athletics website will spotlight two outstanding student-athletes - one male, one female - as the Bantams of the Week. Student-athletes may be chosen based upon their efforts both on and off the field of competition from the previous week.
Hallow helped lead the Bantam 4x400-meter relay squad to a sub-4 minute race to cap off the Last Chance Meet at Boston University with a new college record over the weekend. Hallow and the Trinity squad teamed up to topple the school record in the 4x400 with a 3:59.70 finals time. Hallow also looked destined to shatter the school's 400-meter record but got tripped up with 45 meters to go and came up just short, but still managed to finish just .77 away from the record. Hallow and the Bantam 4x400 team are currently the 49th-fastest group in the nation.
De Mulder went 3-0 in the College Squash Association (CSA) Team National Championships over the weekend to help lead the Bantams to their 17th National Title. In the quarterfinals on Friday, De Mulder clinched the quarterfinal match for Trinity at No. 5, defeating his opponent 3-0. The following day, De Mulder changed the tide of the match that saw Trinity down, 3-2, as the Belgium native came back from down 2-1 to win, tying the overall match at 3-3 which Trinity would ultimately win. In Sunday's championship versus Harvard, De Mulder dominated in a 3-0 victory to cap off the weekend as the Bantams lifted the Potter Trophy for the second-straight year.
