WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University sailing team took second place at the Intercollegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) Gill Coed National Championships after racing finished on Friday on the St. Mary's River in St. Mary's City, Md. The Hoyas finished second with 209 points behind Yale (121) in the four-day event, hosted by St. Mary's College (Md.).
The Bulldogs won the Henry A. Morss Trophy while GU's second-place finish gives the Hoyas the Oxford University Trophy for the second-consecutive year. The Oxford University Yacht Club team and its captain Jeremy Thomas presented this trophy in 1954 on the occasion of the first of a continuing series of college regattas between British and North American teams held alternately in the United States and Great Britain every two years.
"It was an extremely difficult regatta against the top teams in the nation," Head Coach Michael J. Callahan said. "It was difficult to be consistent and Yale did an amazing job. I'm happy with our performance."
Sailing for Georgetown in the A division was Nevin Snow (San Diego, Calif./Cathedral Catholic) with Katia DaSilva (East Greenwich, R.I./Portsmouth Abbey). In the B division, Alex Post (Chicago, Ill./Loyola Academy) was paired with both Katie Olsen (East Dennis, Mass./Cape Cod Academy) and Bettina Redway (Providence, R.I./St. George's).
Snow was a finalist for the Everett B. Morris Trophy, awarded annually to the Marlow Ropes College Sailor of the Year for outstanding performance at the highest level of sailing in the collegiate year. Snow and Yale's Graham Landy were the finalists with the nod going to Landy after the final results were in.
