Though Hoyas have been done with finals for over a month now, athletes on the sailing and track and field teams did not get a break. This past weekend, both teams finally concluded their respective seasons with historic wins.
Georgetown’s sailing team traveled to Austin, Texas for the ICSA/GILL Coed Dinghy National Championship. With their strong season to date, it was no surprise when the team came away with the national title. The Hoyas finished the event 32 points ahead of their closest competitor in Roger Williams University, while also beating out traditional powerhouses Yale and Harvard.
Mike Callahan, Georgetown’s head coach, lauded his team’s approach throughout the weekend. “Georgetown approached each day of the event like three different regattas. The sailors started each day fresh and did not worry about other teams, they just focused on their own sailing”.
Adding to the team’s list of accomplishments, junior Chris Barnard was awarded the Everett B. Morris Trophy for College Sailor of the Year.
