GW Sailing Stays Local for Second Weekend Regattas
Colonials at Competitive Navy Women's Intersectional, John Jackson Team Race on the Potomac
March 7, 2014
WASHINGTON, D.C. & ANNAPOLIS, Md. - GW sailing will stay local for its second weekend of spring regattas, competing at the high-profile Navy Women's Intersectional in nearby Annapolis, Md., and the John Jackson Team Race at the Alexandria Sailing Marina on the Potomac River.
The Navy Women's Intersectional's 20-team fleet will feature 12 of the top 15 women's teams in the nation as many programs from around the country will use the event to prepare for ICSA Women's Nationals in Annapolis in late May.
"We're excited to race against such a strong fleet early in the season and to establish ourselves as contenders in women's competition at the national level," said Head Coach John Pearce. "We've worked very hard on our fitness this winter and we're hungry for success this spring."
Seniors Kaitlin Denney and Erin McCormack and sophomore Hannah McNomee and Maria Sinagra will race for the Colonials along with alternates Alex Hitchcock, Sarah McCormack, Madison Oleson and Jennifer Wilson.
GW will join teams from host Georgetown, Boston University, Connecticut College, Cornell, Stanford and SUNY Maritime at the John Jackson Team Race on its home waters of the Potomac River.
"We have a young team-racing team right now, but we possess a lot of talent and long-term potential," added Coach Pearce. "This is a good chance to face some tough national competition and work on our set plays and execution. It's always great to race here in Washington and the team is fired up."
Juniors Matthew Ricci and Meagan Murphy, sophomore Henry Young and freshmen Daniel DelBello, Colin Kennedy and Brendan Shanahan will comprise the three-boat team with additional alternates to be determined.
