Georgetown Women finish 6th at the Women's Atlantic Coast Championship

Nov. 28, 2012

With the Coed Atlantic Coast Championship cancelled due to Hurricane Sandy the Women’s Atlantic Coast Championship took center stage on Nov 10-11.  The top 18 women’s teams on the East Coast, which included 14 of the top 15 teams in the country, took part in the event held at Connecticut College in New London, CT. 

 

The first day of the regatta saw really light and shifty winds made even harder to figure out by a strong current on the Thames River.  In A div Junior Nancy Hagood and Senior Leslie Cowen seemed to have it all figured out.  The duo sailed consistently and without mistakes to end the day in first overall in A.  The B div team of Amanda Taselaar and Katia DaSilva struggled in the light and shifty conditions and were generally in the bottom part of the fleet.  On Sunday, the roles were reversed.  The wind was a lot stronger and even shiftier than the day before and A div. struggled to stay consistent.  Nancy and Leslie had trouble staying in phase and playing the current properly.  In B div. Amanda and Katia sailed much better staying in the top 5 for most of the day.  The Hoyas won the last race in A and B and moved up to 6th overall, beating #1 ranked Yale by a few points.  Dartmouth won the event with BC finishing 2nd
