Sailing Posts Top-5 Finishes in Team Racing
Colonials finish second at Washington College Team Race, fourth at Graham Hall Team Race
The GW sailing team continued to improve its performance in team racing events over the weekend with a pair of top-five finishes at the Washington College Team Race and Graham Hall Team Race.
The Colonials took second at Washington College and fourth at the Graham Hall, which was hosted by Navy.
“It was a very successful weekend for us,” said head coach Billy Martin. “In particular the team racing squads are really starting to perform. At the Graham Hall Team Race at Navy we came away with our most impressive result of the year with a fourth-place finish. On top of that, we had a second-place showing at the Washington College Team Race. The team put in a lot of hard work over Spring Break and it clearly showed this past weekend.”
GW sent its most experienced group of sailors to Navy, where a contingent of 10 Colonials had a 12-8 record to grab fourth in the 16-team, interconference field. The eighth-ranked Colonials finished behind No. 1 Yale, No. 3 Georgetown and No. 4 Boston College.
At Washington College, another 10-person Colonials contingent took the second-place finish in a six-team conference field, as their 10-5 record was outdone only by Cornell.
Finally, GW also competed at the St. Mary’s Women’s Interconference, finishing 11th of 18 teams.
“It was a great weekend to build depth as some of our top women's players helped contribute to the team’s racing success,” said Martin. “This gave younger players a chance to sail this event. I'm excited at the progress and adjustments these young players made in positions outside of their comfort zone.”
The Colonials are back in action this coming weekend with the Szambecki Team Race at Old Dominion.
