Campbell Named 2005 USOC Male Sailing Athlete of the Year

Jan. 4, 2006

Washington, D.C. - Georgetown University senior Andrew Campbell (San Diego, Calif./The Bishop's School) was honored as the 2005 U.S. Olympic Committee (USOC) Male Sailing Athlete of the Year, announced today by US SAILING, sailing's national governing body.

Campbell wins this award for the second time, having taken home the honor in 2002.

Campbell helped lead the Hoyas to a No. 1 ranking in the final Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) Sailing World College poll. He concluded the 2005 fall season by winning the ICSA/Vanguard Singlehanded National Championship on November 19, becoming the first competitor to win the event three times. Prior to Campbell's singlehanded victory, he helped Georgetown to a second place finish at the Atlantic Coast Dinghy Championship and the ICSA Sloop National Championship. He is currently ranked No. 2 in America in Lasers, having won titles in the singlehanded Lasers at the World University Games and the Laser North Americans.

In mid-December, Campbell was named a finalist for the 2005 Rolex Yachtsman of the Year, an award that will be given out later this month.

The other USOC awards were taken home by Sally Barkow, Debbie Capozzi and Carrie Howe (Team of the Year), Paige Railey (Female Athlete of the Year) and Nick Scandone (Paralympic Athlete of the Year).
