Colonials Set to Show Off Spring Break Improvements
March 14, 2014
WASHINGTON - Following four days of training in Florida over Spring Break, GW sailing returns to action with a quartet of regattas in the Mid-Atlantic this weekend.
"We had an incredible trip to Florida with four days of training and perfect sailing conditions," said second-year Head Coach John Pearce. "The team made massive improvements across the board, so I'm excited to see what we can do at our regattas this weekend."
GW will compete at the Graham Hall Team Race in Annapolis, Md., the St. Mary's Women's Intersectional in St. Mary's City, Md., the Christopher Newport Regatta in Newport News, Va., and the William and Mary Open in Williamsburg, Va.
Graham Hall Team Race at Navy
Skippers: Colin Kennedy, Daniel DelBello, Brendan Shanahan
Crews: Sarah McCormack, Meagan Murphy, Matthew Ricci, Michael Ince
Coach Pearce: "This is a huge national team racing regatta and essentially a preview for the team racing nationals later this year. It will be a challenging event for us, but a great opportunity to cut our teeth against the top teams in the nation in preparation for regional MAISA competition later this spring."
St. Mary's Women's Intersectional
A-Division: Hannah McNomee, Erin McCormack
B-Division: Maria Sinagra, Kaitlin Denney
Coach Pearce: "This is the top women's regatta in the country this weekend, featuring 10 of the top 15 teams in the women's national rankings. We are looking to improve on our 16th place finish at the Navy Women's Regatta last weekend."
CNU Women's Regatta
A-Division: Alex Hitchcock, Gabriella Marki
B-division: Madison Oleson, Kelly Dong
Coach Pearce: "We are going for the win at this regional level competition, and also developing our younger women's sailors in preparation for the future."

1B-Division: William Broman, Jennifer Wilson
2A-Division: Jay Spector, Henry Young
2B-Division: Benjamin Helfand, Darius Homayuni
Coach Pearce: "We are going for the win at this regional regatta as well. This is an experienced group and they are due for a regatta win, so they will be gunning for it from the beginning."
