Fairfield Prep is proud to recognize Stephen Cadoux, who has made an athletic commitment to Ithaca College Crew. Stephen began his rowing career in grade school with Saugatuck Rowing Club in Westport. Upon entering Prep, Stephen decided that it was important to row for his school and he began a career that would eventually see him elected co-captain by his peers. Since sophomore year Stephen was at the center of Prep’s fastest boats and in 2012 his was the first to make it to the semi-finals at America’s largest high school regatta, the Stotesbury Cup. In 2013 his boat repeated that accomplishment on their way to a 15th place overall at the Scholastic National Championship. His rowing awards include: (2013) 15th at Scholastic Rowing Association National Championship in the Junior 8+; (2012) 17th at Scholastic Rowing Association National Championship in the Junior 8+; (2012) 11th at The Stotesbury Cup in the Junior 8+; and (2013) 15th at The Stotesbury Cup in the Junior 8+.
Stephen has always found the right balance between rowing, school and volunteering. When not out on the water, he has been an active and enthusiastic member of the Fairfield Prep community. A genuine and sincere young man, he has embraced the school’s Jesuit mission of Service to Others both near and far. Last summer Stephen attended an immersion service trip to Jamaica working at a special needs orphanage, and he has continued that work locally the past three years volunteering with students at the Wakeman Boys & Girls Club. He has also spent time with Operation Hope in Bridgeport and has helped pack Thanksgiving food donations for Al’s Angels. Stephen will be bringing his warm personality and rowing talents to the Ithaca College campus this fall.
