Lucas Duros proved to be a leader not only for the Trinity College men’s cross country and track and field teams but also among his classmates and peers. He was a Lincoln Scholar recipient for his potential to develop expertise and leadership in an array of fields, and the Bantams' Cross Country captain more than lived up to the challenge. Duros compiled an impressive list of accomplishments, both in athletics and in the classroom, and graduated at the top of his class academically despite the rigorous schedule of a three-season student-athlete.

Duros overcame injuries and personal adversity throughout his Trinity running career, but come back strong each time both for his teammates and in his studies as an engineering major.  At the NCAA Division III New England Regional Championship Race, Duros ran his best collegiate 8K race with a top-60 time of 26:19 out of 400 runners on a sloppy course in poor weather.  He was honored at Trinity’s athletics banquet each of the last two springs with the Bob Harron Award as the college’s top junior male scholar-athlete in 2018 and the ECAC Award as its top senior male scholar-athlete this May. 

Duros was an eight-time NESCAC All-Academic honoree across the cross country and indoor and outdoor track seasons, missing out just once while studying in Berlin, Germany in the spring of his junior season. He was a President’s Fellow for recording the highest GPA among all senior engineering students. After graduation, Duros joined three other Trinity alums at a tech startup, Paperless Parts. The company is focused on increasing efficiency in manufacturing via its cloud-based manufacturing platform that reduces time spent on estimating, quoting and order processing. He works as a computational geometry software engineer.
