WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University sailing team competed in three events last weekend, winning the Arrigan Memorial Regatta and finishing second in both the Mid-Atlantic Intercollegiate Sailing Association (MAISA) Women’s Conference Championships and the Admiral’s Cup. The second-place showing at the MAISA Women’s Championships earned the Hoyas a berth to the Intercollegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) women’s national championships in May.
MAISA Women’s Conference Championships (Geneva, N.Y.)
The Georgetown University women’s sailing team earned a berth at the ICSA women’s national championships in May by virtue of its second-place finish at the MAISA Conference Championships. The regatta was sailed over two days with 11 races per division. The Hoyas sailed well throughout the event but weren’t able to string together enough top finishes to catch crosstown rival George Washington. Going into Sunday the Hoyas were six points down but only one race was sailed in each division, not enough for the Blue & Gray to catch first place.
Results (Top Three of 18)
1. George Washington (77)
2. Georgetown (89)
3. St. Mary’s (97)
Admirals Cup (Kings Point, N.Y.)
The Hoyas rested their top team last weekend and sent a young group to compete against the top teams in the country. The squad featured three freshmen, two sophomores and one junior. All three divisions sailed quite well in the challenging conditions at Kings Point. The standout performer for the Hoyas was Greg Martinez who won C division with six wins in 11 races.
