WORCESTER, Mass. – The Holy Cross men's rowing program has announced senior Jordan Traub (Eastham, Mass.) as the team captain of the 2013-2014 season.
"I am really pleased to have Jordan as the team captain for the 2013-2014 season," said coach Todd Pearson, "Jordan has been a key athlete on my team for the past three years and in many ways has already assumed a leadership role. He has a great deal of experience as an oarsman and commands the respect of his team. I'm confident that he's going to help the team to achieve its goals."
As a junior, Traub was a member of the varsity eight boat in every regatta. He was a member of the varsity eight boat that placed first out of 27 boats at the Snake Regatta on Oct. 13. He was also part of the varsity eight boat that placed third in the third level finals of the Eastern Sprints, defeating No. 20 George Washington, Rutgers and MIT. This year's varsity eight boat was nationally ranked at No. 20 in the USRowing men's varsity eight poll, with the Crusaders receiving 16 points. This was the first time the varsity eight had been ranked in this poll since May 24, 2006.
As a sophomore, Traub was a member of the varsity eight boat that placed first out of 23 boats in the men's race and set a course record at the Snake Regatta on Oct. 15. He also rowed in the varsity eight boat in all seven spring regattas. The varsity eight won races against Rutgers (April 22) and Bucknell (April 29), and was a member of the varsity four that won the petite final at the IRA National Championship (May 31-June 1).
Traub is also a two-year member of the Holy Cross Leadership Academy.
The Holy Cross men's rowing team will return to action after summer break. The fall schedule will be announced at a later date.
