McNomee, Murphy Pace GW Sailing on Day 1 of Princeton Women's Open
Duo Win Saturday's Opening Race, Currently Sit Third in B Division
Sept. 22, 2012
PERTH AMBOY, N.J. - George Washington sailing freshman Hannah McNomee and sophomore Meagan Murphy won the first B Division race of the day and currently sit in third place out of seven teams at the Princeton Women's Fall Open in Raritan Bay.
GW is in fifth place overall in the seven-team field with 73 points following a picturesque Saturday of sailing with eight races and 10-knot winds in the bay between Staten Island and northern coast of New Jersey.
Fordham leads with 31 points, followed by Cornell (39), Queen's University (64) and William & Mary (69). The Colonials hold a two-point edge on the host Tigers, while Penn State is seventh with 97 points.
The duo of McNomee and Murphy added a quartet of third-place showings en route to a team total of 29, 13 points behind B Division leader Fordham.
"We're hoping tomorrow that we'll have six more races in the event and hoping to be able to climb up to third or fourth overall," said head coach John Pearce. "I think that is very attainable and that's our goal."
