Trent Uni­ver­sity ath­let­ics has re­branded it­self with the slo­gan 1Ex­cal­ibur.

It’s a cam­paign aimed at com­bin­ing sport’s abil­ity to bring peo­ple to­gether and the pur­suit of ex­cel­lence to strengthen the Ex­cal­ibur’s ties to the uni­ver­sity and its stu­dents.

The en­ergy, pas­sion and drive for ex­cel­lence by its stu­den­tath­letes “have in­creas­ingly be­come a grav­i­ta­tional force draw­ing ev­ery­one across cam­pus and in the com­mu­nity,” a press re­lease from the uni­ver­sity states.

The women’s lacrosse team won gold at the 2019 OUA cham­pi­onship, the women’s rugby team swept the 2019 OUA awards, the men’s lacrosse team reached the CUFLA fi­nal and men’s rugby had its best fin­ish to date, los­ing in the OUA bronze medal game.

On the wa­ter, Trent row­ers se­cured six medals at the 2019 OUA cham­pi­onship and one medal at the Canadian Uni­ver­sity Row­ing Cham­pi­onship.

“As Trent Uni­ver­sity grows each year, so too does the strength of the Ex­cal­ibur team,” stated Deb­o­rah Bright-Brun­dle, di­rec­tor of ath­let­ics at Trent.

“This cam­paign ex­ists to cel­e­brate the suc­cess of our Ex­cal­ibur teams and stu­dent-ath­letes with a con­tin­ued fo­cus on the fu­ture of sport in the house of 1Ex­cal­ibur.

“Ex­cal­ibur pride is at an all­time high, and it is our time to push the green and white to new lev­els.”

1Ex­cal­ibur is a re­flec­tion of the hunger to rep­re­sent Trent boldly and loudly and achieve suc­cess to­gether as one team sup­ported uni­ver­si­ty­wide.

“I am a firm be­liever that peo­ple are a prod­uct of those they sur­round them­selves with, ei­ther rais­ing you up to your best or drag­ging you down to your worst,” stated Evan Kop­sala, a mem­ber of the Ex­cal­ibur row­ing team.

“Be­ing sur­rounded by such pos­i­tive, driven in­di­vid­u­als has pushed me to win mul­ti­ple OUA medals, grad­u­ate with hon­ours and pur­sue a mas­ter’s de­gree. To me, 1Ex­cal­ibur rep­re­sents the com­mon­al­i­ties we share in our pur­suit of ex­cel­lence — whether it be on the wa­ter, on the field, on the court or in the class­room.”

Trent Uni­ver­sity ath­let­ics has re­branded it­self with the slo­gan 1Ex­cal­ibur.
