Faye Bennett Regatta – MAISA Women’s Laser Championship
Top 5 go to the ICSA National Championship in Long Beach, CA Nov 2-4
3rd Nancy Hagood
8th Madeline Higgins
10th Amanda Taselaar
16th Alexis Coudert
Nancy Hagood became the first Hoya women’s sailor to qualify for the ICSA Women’s Singlehanded National Championship since Cordo Carraher in 2004. Nancy has been working hard at laser sailing with the help of her Hoya Teammates Chris Barnard (Current North American Laser Champion) and Greg Martinez (Current Laser US Junior National Champion). At our first Laser regatta this season Nancy finished in 7th overall and was pretty far from the top five. Over the course of the next two weeks she worked as hard as she could to get better. During the two day conference championship regatta Nancy sailed as consistently as any sailor on the course. She never finished out of the top 10 and generally finished in the top 5. The conditions ranged from light and shifty to windy with waves and Nancy was competitive in every race. By virtue of her 3rd place finish Nancy qualifies for the ICSA Women’s Singlehanded National Championship in Long Beach, CA. This regatta has historically been the weakest national championship for the Hoyas as they have only qualified four times over the past 20 years. The other Hoyas at the regatta had their moments of brilliance but weren’t consistent enough in the end. Freshman Madeline Higgins finished 8th overall and proved that she is going to have a real chance at qualifying over the next three years. Junior Amanda Taselaar hadn’t sailed a laser since 2008 but nonetheless proved to be very competitive when the wind was lighter. Alexis Coudert suffered some deep races in the opening of the regatta but battled back to win one race and be in the top ten for many others.

The Hoyas Coed Team continued its streak of impressive early season results with a 2nd place finish at the highly competitive St. Mary’s Intersectional this weekend. The team was led once again by seniors Chris Barnard and Hilary Kenyon who finished 2nd in A division. The duo had some really impressive streaks during the two day regatta finishing top 4 in 11 of 18 races. In B div Freshman Skipper Sean Golden was very impressive in his first national regatta. Sailing alternately with Sophomore Katia DaSilva and senior Maisie Totaro Sean cruised to an impressive 5th place finish in B.
