GW Sailing Heads to Annapolis for Pair of Competitive Regattas
Freshmen DelBello, Kennedy to Compete for MAISA Laser Championship
Oct. 11, 2013
WASHINGTON - GW sailing continues its fall conference championship season this weekend with the MAISA Laser Championship, as well as the Navy Women's Fall Intersectional, in Annapolis, Md., this weekend.
Freshmen Daniel DelBello and Colin Kennedy are among the 18 competitors set for the MAISA Laser Championships - the Carl Van Duyne Regatta - which has been moved to Annapolis, Md., from Kings Point, N.Y. DelBello and Kennedy will be joined by some of the top singlehanded sailors from conference foes Cornell, Fordham, Georgetown, Hobart and William Smith, Navy, SUNY Maritime, Old Dominion and St. Mary's (Md.).
DelBello and Kennedy were both impressive in qualifying for the MAISA Laser Championship, finishing second and sixth, respectively, in their collegiate sailing debuts at the MAISA Laser South qualifier back in September.
GW will also compete in the Navy Women's Fall Intersectional against some of the top teams from across the nation, including 10 of the top 15 ranked women's teams - No. 1 Yale, No. 4 Navy, No. 5 Stanford, No. 6 Brown, No. 7 Georgetown, No. 8 St. Mary's (Md.), No. 9 Charleston, No. 10 Hobart and William Smith, No. 11 MIT and No. 14 Cornell.
Fresh off its qualification for the Atlantic Coast Women's Championship at last weekend's MAISA Women's Fall Championship, the Colonials' quartet of A Division Maria Sinagra and Kaitlin Denney, and B Division Hannah McNomee and Erin McCormack will compete, as well as freshman Madison Oleson making her collegiate singlehanded debut in C Division.
