Washington, D.C. - The Georgetown sailing program finished the fall season ranked No. 1 in the ICSA Sailing World College rankings, as voted upon by a panel of college coaches. Meanwhile, the women's squad concludes the fall season ranked eighth nationally.

"I am very proud of our teams performance and they worked extremely hard to get to No. 1," said Head Coach Mike Callahan. "Even though, we have reached this point, we cannot be satisfied and need to continue to work in order to maintain our top ranking. Our goal, as always, is to qualify for and win National Championships and we have three to win this spring. That is what we will be working for when we start spring practice in January."

The Hoyas finished the fall season strong, vaulting them into the top spot for the first time since 2003. Highlighting the conclusion to the season was senior Andrew Campbell (San Diego, Calif./The Bishops School) winning the ICSA/Vanguard Singlehanded National Championship on November 19, becoming the first competitor to win the event three times. Prior to Campbell's singlehanded victory, he helped Georgetown to second place finishes at the Atlantic Coast Dinghy Championship and the ICSA Sloop National Championship.

The women's squad ended the fall season with fifth place finishes at the Atlantic Coast Women's Championship and the MAISA Women's Fall Championship.
