The Coed Team started off the intersectional season with a huge win at the 2012 Nevins Trophy. The team started out well and was able to maintain a nice lead throughout the event. In A division Freshman Nevin Snow sailing with All American Crew Hilary Kenyon were incredibly consistent en route to a 15 point win. Its rare that a freshman skipper wins A division at an intersectional and to win by so much. In B division sophomores Alex Post and Katia DaSilva started with a 2,2,1 in B division and despite a few double digit races late in the regatta were able to finish in the top 5. It’s the best performance by Post in his collegiate career. Senior College Sailor of the Year Chris Barnard won C division by 10 points. Chris was consistently faster than the competition.
Mrs. Hurst Bowl @ Dartmouth
B div. 3rd Place MaryKate Mezzetti / Genevieve Burgoyne
Overall – out of 22 teams
3. Boston College
The 5th ranked Georgetown Women’s team started off their fall 2012 season with a 4th place finish at the Mrs. Hurst Regatta at Dartmouth. The first women’s intersectional of the year featured 22 of the best teams in country. Sailing on Mascoma Lake the Hoyas sailed quite well in windy and shifty conditions. In A div Amanda and Leslie held their own against a field full of great sailors and were competitive in every race. In B div. Freshman MaryKate Mezzetti sailed with Junior Genevieve Burgoyne. This was MaryKates first college regatta and she was impressive. The duo tied for 2nd in B division and finished the regatta with 5 top 5 races. They got better and faster in each race and that bodes well for the future.
