Strong Sunday Propels GW Sailing to 15th at War Memorial
Colonials Improve One Spot on Sunday, Narrowly Miss Qualifying for Atlantic Coast Tourney
Oct. 28, 2012
KINGS POINT, N.Y. - George Washington sailing enjoyed a solid Sunday at the War Memorial Regatta, improving to a 15th-place finish in its first MAISA Fall Coed Championship as a varsity program.
The Colonials climbed one spot from Saturday's 16th-place position, but still narrowly missed qualifying for the Atlantic Coast Dinghy Tournament, with bids awarded to teams finishing 8th through 14th at the War Memorial. GW could still receive a bid depending on which programs accept bids to the event, which will be held on Nov. 10 and 11 in St. Mary's City, Md.
GW nearly erased a 39-point Day 1 deficit to Buffalo, but finished in 15th with 474 total points over 18 races compared to the 14th-place Bulls' 465 points. Georgetown captured the War Memorial title with 124 points, followed by St. Mary's (Md.) College (173) in second, Navy (205) in third, Hobart and William Smith (210) in fourth, and Old Dominion (228) rounding out the top five. The Colonials finished ahead of Christopher Newport (493), Drexel (537) and Princeton (596).
12 races in A Division and 11 races in B Division were sailed on Saturday with a variety of wind conditions and heavy current in the Long Island Sound. The remaining races were completed on Sunday with sustained 15-25 knot winds provided by approaching Hurricane Sandy.
Freshman skipper Maria Sinagra, senior Richard Sant, sophomore Meagan Murphy and rookie Henry Young piloted the B Division to 13th place with 210 points. The team posted six top 10 finishes, highlighted by sixth-place in Race #7.
