WASHINGTON - The Georgetown coed sailing team finished the 2013-14 regular season with a win at the Mid-Atlantic Intercollegiate Sailing Association (MAISA) Conference Championship. The regatta, called the America Trophy, featured the top 18 teams from the conference and was held at the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy in Kings Point, N.Y. This marks the seventh time in eight years that the Hoyas won the America Trophy.

The regatta was held over two days in a variety of conditions. The first day saw light winds with large shifts in both direction and speed, making it hard to have consistently good finishes. For the most part, the Hoyas avoided any bad finishes and ended the day in first overall, a few points ahead of Navy and Old Dominion.

The second day of the regatta featured a strong northwest wind with large waves. Again, the Hoyas were consistently in the top 10 and were able to hold off a late charge by St. Mary's College of Maryland to win the regatta by 12 points.

The Hoyas finished first in the A division with skipper Nevin Snow (San Diego, Calif./Cathedral Catholic) and crews Katia DaSilva (East Greenwich, R.I./Portsmouth Abbey) and Amanda Taselaar (Scarsdale, N.Y./Scarsdale). The Blue & Gray finished fourth in the B division with skipper Alex Post (Chicago, Ill./Loyola Academy) and crews Katie Olsen (East Dennis, Mass./Cape Cod Academy) and Bettina Redway (Providence, R.I./St. George's).

Following the championships, MAISA named its 2013-14 All-Conference team with five Hoyas making the list. For his efforts, Snow was named the MAISA Conference Player of the Year. Snow and Post were both named to the Coed Skipper All-Conference First Team. Redway and DaSilva were named to the Coed Crew All-Conference First Team.

 

 

For the women's team, Mary Kate Mezzetti (Hyannis, Mass./Barnstable) and DaSilva were named to the second team.

Georgetown has qualified for all three spring national championships: women's, team racing and fleet racing. The national championships will be held at the Naval Academy and St. Mary's from May 27 through June 6.
