Georgetown Sailing Wins Prosser Trophy

April 12, 2013

WASHINGTON -

No. 3 Georgetown University sailing team competed in the Middle Atlantic Intercollegiate Sailing Association (MAISA) championship regatta on April 6-7, 2013, winning the Prosser Trophy. The event was hosted by Hobart and William Smith Colleges and held on Lake Seneca.

The race featured the top eight teams from the conference competing in a double round robin format. Amidst slow conditions and light winds that led to only half of the first round being completed, the Hoyas started strong, with a 6-0 record on the first day. The Hoyas finished the round robin rounds, with a record of 12-2, on the second day that saw much stronger winds and higher waves. Georgetown lost to Navy and Old Dominion, but the Blue & Gray, which tied with St. Mary’s College, was ab;e to advance to the final four. In the final four round, Georgetown defeated Hobart, but suffered a close loss to Navy, setting up a winner-take-all race against St. Mary’s. In the final, Georgetown defeated St. Mary’s, winning the Prosser Trophy with a 14-3 record in the two-day event. St. Mary’s finished second, and Navy rounded out the top three.

The Georgetown squad featured skippers Chris Barnard (Newport Beach, Calif./Newport Harbor), Nevin Snow (San Diego, Calif./Cathedral Catholic), and Alex Post (Chicago, Ill./Loyola Academy) and crewmembers Hilary Kenyon (Wayzata, Minn./The Blake School), Tory Lynch (New York City, N.Y./Horace Mann), Katia DaSilva (East Greenwich, R.I./Moses Brown), Annalee Leggett (Manchester, Mass./Phillips Academy Andover), Katie Olsen (East Dennis, Mass./Cape Cod Academy), Sean Golden (Duxbury, Mass./Tabor Academy), Nancy Hagood (Charleston, S.C./Ashley Hall), Leslie Cowen (Dover, Mass./Tabor Academy), and John Andril (Arlington, Va./Potomac School). Barnard and Kenyon were All-Americans last year, while Snow has been selected as a member of Team America Racing, which will represent the United States at the Youth Americas Cup.


 

 

The regatta, in addition to determining the conference champion, also served as a qualifier for the Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) Team Race National Championship. The top three finishers, Georgetown, St. Mary’s, and Navy, made it to the national championship. The national championship, hosted by Eckerd College and USF, will take place on May 25-27, 2013. Georgetown, which won the ICSA Team Race National Championship in 2001 and 2006, came in seventh place last year, winning six races and losing eight at the event.

This weekend, the Hoyas will compete at the America Trophy, which is the conference Coed Fleet Racing Championship. The event will be hosted by Navy.
