GW Sailing Finishes 2012-13 in Sailing World's Conference Women's Rankings
GW's Women Sailors Conclude First Varsity Season Ranked Seventh in MAISA
May 15, 2013
George Washington sailing capped its first varsity season last month and on Wednesday was rewarded with an appearance in Sailing World's College Rankings.
By virtue of their seventh-place finish at the MAISA Women's Championship in late April, the Colonials are ranked seventh in the final MAISA Women's Conference Rankings of the spring season. The finish left GW just one spot shy of qualifying for the Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) National Women's Championship semifinals.
"This ranking shows how close we were to qualifying for the ICSA Women's Nationals this spring and reflects the hard work of the entire team this year," said head coach John Pearce. "We have a great group of returners coming back to lead the team next year and I'm confident that we will be at the National Championship a year from now."
Six of the seven sailors who helped the Colonials to the seventh-place effort at the MAISA Women's Championship last month are set to return in 2013-14 - team MVP Maria Sinagra, Kaitlin Denney, Hannah McNomee, Erin McCormack, Meagan Murphy and Alex Hitchcock.
Through an open coaches poll, Sailing World publishes national coed and women's college rankings on a bi-weekly basis throughout the season, as well as coed and women's rankings for all seven conferences at the conclusion of each fall and spring season.
