Rex makes men's crew All-NESCAC team

WATERVILLE, Maine — Colby College’s Liam Rex ’19 (Andover, Mass.) earned All-New England Small College Athletic Conference honors Friday in his first year with the men’s crew.

Rex was selected to the second team and was one of only two first-year rowers on the squad. He rowed from the eighth position (stroke) in the boat.

Rex helped the Mules to better finishes this season than last year. Colby finished eighth in the New England Rowing Championships, 13th at the National Invitational Regatta, and won the tri-meet with University of New Hampshire and University of Vermont.
