Wesley Ng coached the Trinity College women’s rowing team to its first ever NCAA Division III title, unseating eight-time consecutive champion Williams College. Trinity’s varsity eight won gold, while the second varsity eight won silver. The Trinity College women completed their dual season with a 12-0 record and helped coach Ng win the 2014 Fan’s Choice Collegiate Coach of the Year award.

“Every NCAA regatta is special in its own right, there’s a story or narrative of the team to that point that gets concluded in a different way each time. My hope is that the team can be proud of their performance and that it matches their level of preparation,” Ng said about the team’s success.

Ng will be honored at the Golden Oars Awards Dinner Thursday at the New York Athletic Club in New York City.

In addition to his NCAA victory, Ng also coached the women’s quadruple sculls to a ninth-place finish at the 2014 World Rowing Under 23 Championships in Varese, Italy. “This past summer was fantastic as I was able to see the junior, U23, and senior national teams in action, I would love to continue my involvement with USRowing.”

“I believe that the most pivotal thing in any successful rowing career has been the chance to learn from and share ideas with great athletes and coaches,” he said about the importance of continuing to learn. “Once you have an idea, you also have to be able to apply it and that requires committed and flexible athletes”

Asking him to share any advice for others, he said, “Ask questions of other coaches and remember that you’re there to improve the athlete’s experience above all else.”
