Position:
Assistant Coach


Alana O'Reilly is beginning her first season on Head Coach Mike Callahan's staff. O'Reilly was named an assistant coach with the Hoyas in September 2006.

"I am extremely excited that Alana agreed to come to Georgetown," said Callahan. "She was the best women's sailor in college last season and she will be a great asset to the Hoya program."

O'Reilly graduated from the College of Charleston in May 2006, with a degree in political science, concluding a stellar four-year sailing career. She topped off last season by being named the 2006 Quantum Female College Sailor of the Year after leading the Cougars to the Women's Dinghy National Championship over the runner-up Hoyas. O'Reilly and partner Susan Lintern won the A Division, taking home the Madeleine Trophy, named after former Hoya sailor and coach Madeleine Desario.

A two-time All-American, O'Reilly also received the honor in 2005 when she helped Charleston to a second-place finish at the women's dinghy nationals. As a sophomore, she was an honorable mention All-American and was given the Charleston Women's Sailing Award, given to the most outstanding female sailor over the age of 18 in the Charleston, S.C. area.

O'Reilly also has a wealth of experience teaching and coaching sailing in her off time. Over the past two summers, she has coached the Advanced Optimist Racing team at the Pleon Yacht Club in Marblehead, Mass. In addition, last spring O'Reilly was an assistant coach at Academic Magnet High School in North Charleston, S.C. Prior to those experiences, she had spent a summer coaching at the Stamford Yacht Club in Stamford, Conn. and the Charleston Yacht Club, and three summers, while in high school, at the James Island Yacht Club.
