In Memoriam: Giancarlo Trevisan

Giancarlo Trevisan, former rowing coach at Saint Mary's College of California and a member of the College's Athletics Hall of Fame, passed away on May 13, 2008.

"Giancarlo's first love was always rowing and the Saint Mary's students," said Mr. Trevisan's widow, Marianne. "Recently he was never happier than when he was talking to rowers about their past achievements."

Mr. Trevisan received Saint Mary's College Athletics highest honor in 2006 when he was inducted into the Hall of Fame. He is fondly remembered by all of his former student-athletes.
