Hoyas win Intrepid Trophy
Women finish 4th at Conference Championship
Intrepid Trophy @ Navy – Match Racing
3. St. Mary’s
4. SUNY Maritime
Nevin Snow – Skipper
The Intrepid Trophy is a Match Racing Regatta sailed at Navy in Colgate 26’s. The Hoyas are fairly new to collegiate match racing but luckily Freshman Skipper Nevin Snow is one of the best in the country. Nevin is ranked in the top 5 in country in Match Racing and that showed this weekend as he led the Hoyas to a first place finish. Sailing with Nevin were a group of experienced and talented Hoyas Tactician Matt Gowell, Sail Trimmer Tory Lynch and Alex Post on Foredeck. The Hoyas had really close races with the top four teams especially Navy and St. Mary’s and they have their work cut out for them as they try to qualify for the 2012 ICSA Match Racing Championship this November in Texas.
MAISA Fall Women’s Championship
A div. 2nd w/ 69 points Nancy Hagood / Isabelle Luzuriaga
B div. 5th w/ 72 points MaryKate Mezzetti / Katie Olsen
Overall – 4th
The Georgetown Women’s Team traveled to St. Mary’s College this weekend to take on the top Women’s teams in our conference. The top eight schools from this event qualify for the 2012 Women’s Atlantic Coast Championships. Finishing in the top 8 was never in doubt for the Hoyas as they battled with Hobart, Navy, St. Mary’s and Old Dominion for the top five spots in the regatta. The Navy team proved more consistent over the weekend and a few double digit finishes pushed the Hoyas back to 4th overall. That’s still a very promising finish and the women’s team is on track to do great things this year.
South Fall #1 @ Old Dominion
B div. 2nd w/ 32 points Sean Golden / Annalee Leggett
Overall – 2nd
The Hoyas ended up finishing 2nd at the South #1 this weekend. The South #1 Qualifier at Old Dominion is the first in a series of regattas that the Hoyas compete in to try to earn a spot at the Spring National Championship. The top four teams from the South #1 move on to the Conference Championship. From there the top 7 teams make the Fall Atlantic Coast Championship and earn a berth to the Spring Conference Championship in April 2013. The Hoyas started the regatta a little slow but over the course of the two day event their results improved. In A div Dan Eichler and Courtney Sherman rarely finished out of the top 5 in every race. They had good starts and upwind speed but were a little off the pace on the downwinds. They did have a great day on Sunday and led the Hoyas comeback to finish 2nd overall. In B div. Freshman Sean Golden and Senior Annalee Leggett improved with every race and by the end of the regatta were finishing 1st or 2nd in most races. The duo had great speed throughout the regatta.
