BRISTOL, R.I. – For the sixth year in a row, the sailing team has earned a berth at the ICSA Team Race National Championship.
Tacking up a record of 12-6 at this weekend’s Fowle Trophy competition, the Hawks sailed themselves into second place overall finishing. The runner-up finish at the regatta secures the Hawks an invitation to the ICSA Team Race National Championship in May.
Head Coach Amanda Callahan attributed their success, in part, to having three seniors with hard-won experience on the team.
“The seniors had all sailed the qualifiers together at some point over the last three years,” Callahan said. “That’s a lot of senior leadership coming back to help the team qualify, and I think that experience over the last three years made the difference."
