WASHINGTON - The No. 1 Georgetown University coed sailing team continued its hot start to the season by winning the John Jackson 9’03) Memorial Team Race Regatta last weekend on the friendly waters of the Potomac River.

The Hoyas showcased their depth at the John Jackson Team Race by using 15 different athletes. The Hoyas finished the regatta with a 13-1 record. Roger Williams finished second with a record of 8-6.

Navy Spring Women’s Intersectional
A Division (2nd, 23 points): Mary Kate Mezzetti / Bettina Redway
B Division (4th, 30 points): Rosie Edwards / Emily Fung

The Navy Spring Women’s Intersectional featured most of the top 20 teams in the country. Light winds hampered racing all weekend, and of the 36 races scheduled, only 10 were completed.

In the A division, Mary Kate Mezzeti (Hyannnis, Mass./Barnstable) and Bettina Redway (Providence, R.I./St. George’s) continued their hot streak, winning three of five races and finishing one point out of first. In the B division, Rosie Edwards (Chicago, Ill./St. Ignatius College Prep) and Emily Fung (Rye, N.Y./Rye) also sailed well, finishing just a few points shy of first place. Overall, Yale won the regatta with 42 points while the Hoyas finished second (53).

The Hoyas will continue the spring season with three regattas this weekend. The Blue & Gray will travel to Annapolis, Md., for the Graham Hall Team Race; St. Mary’s City, Md., for the St. Mary’s Intersectional; and Chestertown, Md., for the Washington College Team Race.
