WASHINGTON - Following three days of racing on Lake Ledro in Trentino, Italy for the World University Match Racing Championships, the Georgetown University sailing team has qualified for the quarterfinals and is tied for the lead with an overall record of 7-1. The Hoyas are representing the United States at this international event as the Blue & Gray won the Intercollegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) Match Racing National Championship in November.

The United States had a great day on the water as they defeated the previously unbeaten Italian team and then recorded a win over Russia. With a record of 7-1, the Hoya foursome of Nevin Snow (San Diego, Calif./Cathedral Catholic), Alex Post (Chicago, Ill./Loyola Academy), AJ Reiter (San Diego, Calif./Point Loma) and Katia DaSilva (East Greenwich, R.I./Portsmouth Abbey) are in a tie for first place.

Team USA has automatically qualified for the quarterfinals and awaits the winner of the repachage round. The quarterfinals will be a head-to-head competition with the first team to reach two wins advancing to the next round.
