Pembroke’s James Hutchinson started feeling a bit empty after completing his final athletic event at Massachusetts Maritime Academy last weekend. The senior earned a fifth-place finish at the New England Division 3 Outdoor Track Field Championships with his heave of 54.91 meters in the javelin. Hutchinson was also a four-year defensive lineman for the Buccaneer football team, earning all-conference honors last fall.
“I’m suddenly really bored,” he said. “It’s weird being all done. I really hope I left an impact; just trying to get these guys to have the correct work ethic while working smart instead of just working hard.”
At the academy’s senior awards’ banquet held Wednesday, Hutchinson was the recipient of the Trustees Award, which is presented to a male senior student-athlete who best exemplifies the spirit and philosophy of Division III athletics.
