ICSA Announces 2012 All-Academic Sailing Team

by Jennifer Mitchell on 23 Oct 2012
. .
The Intercollegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) has named its 2012 All-Academic Sailing Team. The 2012 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 2011 – 2012 academic year. A nominated sailor must have a minimum of a 3.5 cumulative GPA (on a 4.0 scale), junior or senior academic standing and they must be a key starter or reserve on a school’s sailing team. Each school is allowed three nominations.

A seven-person committee comprised of representatives from each conference in the ICSA evaluates nominated sailors: Matthew Lindblad-NEISA, Kyle Eaton-NWICSA, Dan Thompson-MAISA, Jenn Hockema-MCSA, Stephen Davis-SAISA, Rachel Ellis-SEISA and John Vandemoer-PCCSC. The committee uses the same competition data that is used to determine the ICSA All-American Team, which honors sailors for their exceptional competitive performance.

The committee can select up to ten scholar athletes for both the First and Second All-Academic Teams. This year, for the first time, the committee has also named an All-Conference Team. This team recognizes other exemplary sailors who are also great representatives, but were not able to be included on the First or Second Teams.

This year’s All-Academic Team is comprised of nine First Team members, ten Second Team members and 16 All-Conference members.

'This year's selections are an excellent representation of the achievements on the water and in the classroom. Eight of the team members also received a form of All-American recognition and most were competitive at the highest levels of collegiate sailing competition,' says Matt Lindblad, co-head coach of the MIT Varsity Sailing Team and chairman of the ICSA All-Academic Sailing Team Selection Committee.
