Sailing Takes Fifth at Susan Rogers Memorial
Colonials perform well in women’s interconference regatta
The GW sailing team competed in four regattas over the weekend with a fifth-place finish at the Susan Rogers Memorial at Cornell highlighting the action.
GW, which is ranked eighth nationally in the women’s poll, took on a strong interconference field at Cornell, finishing behind the host Big Red, Rhode Island, Hobart & William Smith and Navy. Meanwhile, the Colonials came up short of their goal to qualify for the ICSA Match Race National Championship with a fifth-place result at the MAISA Match Race Championship.
The Colonials were also in action at the Danmark Trophy at Coast Guard, placing 18th, and the Tom Curtis Memorial Regatta at Georgetown where five GW boats sailed in a fleet of 20.
“Finishing fifth overall at the Susan Rogers Memorial is a great finish,” said head coach Billy Martin. “At the Naval Academy we were just one race shy of finishing in the final four as we looked to qualify for nationals. We return all four players next year and that’s a really solid result to come in fifth. In all, we got about 25 sailors in competition this weekend so it was great to be able to get that many reps.”
SUSAN ROGERS MEMORIAL (5th of 14)
Racing was limited to Saturday as a lack of winds and temperatures in the 30s prevented any sailing on Sunday. In A Division, Aitana Mendigurne and Emma Mendenhall took fourth place, while Tanner Chapko and Sarah Noyes took fifth in B Division.
MAISA MATCH RACE (5th of 8)
Needing a top-two finish to qualify for ICSA Nationals, GW came up short with a team of four juniors in Wade Wagner, Andrew Sheerin, Mercedes McPhee and Sam Mendenhall. The eight-team field was cut in half after the first day, with the Colonials just missing out on advancing.
DANMARK TROPHY (18th of 20)
The Colonials couldn’t find their groove in the coed interconference regattas, as Derek Poon-Tip and Shira Golub placed 17th in A Division, and Sam White and Andreea Ranney-Pace were 16th in B Division.
TOM CURTIS MEMORIAL REGATTA
GW was one of just five schools competing in the promotional regatta, with each team sending out multiple boats. The Colonials had five teams in action, finishing 6th, 12th, 13th, 15th and 20th.
Three regattas are on the slate next weekend: the Carl Van Duyne at King’s Point, the David Lee Arnoff Trophy at Hobart & William Smith, and the Navy Fall Women’s.
