CAMBRIDGE, MASS. (July 17, 2015) – The Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) has named its 2014-15 All-Academic Sailing Team. The All-Academic Sailing Team recognizes collegiate sailors who have achieved excellence in national and inter-conference competition as well as excelling at the highest academic level for the 2014-15 academic year. The All-Academic Sailing Team was inaugurated in 2006 and this year there is new criteria resulting in a longer list of honorees than there has been in previous years.
“We have opened it up to recognize the many outstanding students in college sailing,” says Mitch Brindley, President of the ICSA. The honorees must be a Junior or Senior, have at least a 3.3 cumulative GPA or higher on a 4.0 scale, and be a starter or key reserve in at least seven university sponsored regattas.
A seven-person committee comprised of representatives from conferences in the ICSA evaluates the nominated sailors. This year’s All-Academic Team is comprised of 173 members. The cumulative GPA average of the honorees is 3.64.
Brown University had the most sailors in all of college sailing named to the team, with 14 of the 17 Juniors and Seniors on the 2014-2015 Brown Sailing roster making it. Harvard University was second with 11 sailors, and Connecticut College and the U.S. Naval Academy each had 8 sailors making the team. We are very proud of the hard work and dedication our student-athletes put in both on and off the water.
Congrats to the following Brown Sailors for making this year's ICSA All-Academic Team:
Lucas Adams '15, Peter Bailey '15, Timothy Harding '15, Johanna Kincaid '15, Kelly McGlynn '15, Nicole Quattrocchi '15, Nathan Allman '16, James Barry '16, Ragna Eide '16, Jessie O'Dell '16, Pearson Potts '16, Reid Secondo '16, Katherine Sudol '16, and Alexandra Swanson '16.
