Iona Mourning Sophomore Rower Falk

The athlete died Sunday night in New Rochelle.

Iona College announced Monday the death of William Falk, 20, of Madbury, NH.

The college said he was in his second year with the Iona rowing program.

"The entire program is deeply saddened by this tragic event," said head coach Thomas Scifres.

"William was a great friend and teammate and well liked by everyone who knew him," he said. "We will all miss William deeply and our heartfelt condolences to his family."

Director of Athletics Eugene Marshall Jr. said the department's thoughts and prayers were with Falk's family during what must be a difficult time.

Arrangements for Falk are unavailable at this time. Services of the Counseling Center and Campus Ministries are available for all members of the Iona community in McGrath Room B (The Robert V. LaPenta Student Union) and in the Counseling Center.

A community prayer service has been scheduled for 4 p.m. Monday, Sept. 24, in the Arrigoni Center.

The Journal News said Falk was in his dormitory before being taken to Sound Shore Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead at 10:46 p.m. The county medical examiner's office said the death did not appear suspicious.
