The Trent University Excalibur Athletes of the Week are women’s varsity rower Paige Burns, and men’s varsity rower Trevor Jones!
Burns, a first year Social Work major, had a fantastic weekend on the water at the Canadian University Rowing Championships. She finished 8th in the women’s single scull and 6th in the women’s 8 heavyweight races! This is a giant step forward for the Excalibur Rowing program and creates an exciting University career ahead for the freshman rower!
Jones, a U23 Canadian National team member, also had a very successful weekend in Burnaby, British Columbia. With a Bronze medal in the heavyweight men’s double, and a Gold in the men’s single scull races, he not only cemented his place as one of the best young rowers in our nation, he was crowned the back-to-back single scull Champion!
