Hartford, Conn. - Trinity College Dean of Campus Life, Vice President for Student Affairs and Supervisor of Athletics and Recreation Joe DiChristina announced on Tuesday that Mike Renwick has resigned from his role as the College's director of athletics and recreation, effective June 30.
Renwick’s tenure has been highlighted by Trinity’s success on the playing field and in the classroom. The Bantams have won nine national championships and had 10 national runner-up finishes, as well as 25 conference titles, while at the same time improving team grade-point averages from 3.1 to 3.3.
“I have had the privilege to work with and lead an incredibly talented group of coaches, staff members and student-athletes for the past seven years," said Renwick. "Their dedication to their individual sports and the ideal of educating and developing students for life through sport has been unbelievably impressive. We have accomplished a great deal and I feel confident leaving at this point to personally explore new challenges and opportunities. I would like to thank all those that have supported our coaches and student-athletes at Trinity. My work with our alumni body was among some of my favorite times at Trinity and I can’t thank them enough for their dedication to their alma mater and their desire to support the student experience. Athletics at Trinity is all about people, a strong tradition of excellence and the hard work done each and every day by so many to support our student-athletes. Roll Bants!"
His time here has been marked as well by other forms of achievement and progress, including the transformation of Trinity’s athletic facilities, the most recent of which were the renovation of Jessee/Miller Field and Track Complex and the construction of new softball and soccer stadiums and a new baseball facility, Murren Family Field at DiBenedetto Stadium.
"We wish Mike well in his future endeavors and appreciate his partnership in ensuring a smooth transition in Athletics," said DiChristina.
The College will launch a national search to find his successor, which will be led by a multi-constituent search committee on campus and aided by an external search firm.
Kristen Noone, Trinity's assistant athletic director for compliance, has been appointed as interim athletic director.
