NEW LONDON, Conn. – The Connecticut College sailing teams competed at a pair of regattas over the past weekend.
The coed squad hosted the New England Team Race, which served as a qualifier for the upcoming ICSA National Championships next month. The Camels were competitive and finished in a three-way tie for fourth place with Harvard and Boston College after eight rounds of competition. Boston College, however, came out on top of the group for beating the Camels and Crimson in the sail-off round to earn the fourth and final qualifying spot for the national championships.
Seniors High MacGillivray (Portsmouth, R.I.), Walter Florio (Rye, N.Y.) and Albert Rodiger (Hingham, Mass.) as well as sophomores Carter Pemberton (Osterville, Mass.), Gwynie Dunlevy (San Francisco, Calif.) and Cecilia Moreira (Winthrop, Mass.) represented Connecticut College at the regatta which came down to the wire.
The women's program also sent competitors to Yale and placed 16th overall at the Emily Wick Regatta. Seniors Emilia Clementi (Venice Beach, Calif.) and Haley Kachmar (Avon, Conn.) as well as sophomore Paige Dunlevy (San Francisco, Calif.) put forth the team's best effort by finishing 14th in the B Division.
Connecticut College will next host the Thompson Trophy on Saturday, Apr. 14. The team will also recognize its senior class and welcome back two-time Olympian Amanda Clark '05, who will be inducted into the Connecticut College Athletic Hall of Fame on Saturday evening.
