GW Sailing Heads to Competitive Emily Wick Trophy Women's Intersectional
Colonials Set to Battle Top-Flight Field and Prepare for MAISA Women's Championships
April 3, 2014
WASHINGTON - GW sailing will head north to New London, Conn., and the U.S. Coast Guard Academy to compete in the Emily Wick Trophy Women's Intersectional on the Thames River this weekend.
The fleet will consist of 18 of the top teams from MAISA and NEISA, including 12 teams currently ranked in the women's national top 15, highlighted by No. 1 Yale, No. 2 Dartmouth, No. 3 Navy and two teams tied for fifth in MIT and Stanford.
"We're using the Emily Wick Trophy as a dress rehearsal before the MAISA Women's Championships on April 19-20," said Head Coach John Pearce. "The NEISA teams are very strong in women's competition, so it will be an excellent test of how we've improved over the last several weeks."
The Colonials will send sophomore Hannah McNomee and senior Erin McCormack to sail in A Division, sophomore Maria Sinagra and senior Kaitlin Denney to race in B Division, and junior Alex Hitchcock and freshman Gabriella Malek as alternate skipper and crew, respectively.
"We have the same group of team members in the line-up and we will approach the racing with a championship mentality," added Coach Pearce. "The competition this weekend will be just as tough as it was at the Navy Women's Intersectional and the St Mary's Women's Intersectional earlier this year, so we are hoping to improve on our 16th place finishes at each of those regattas."
