College Sailing announces 2013 All-Academic Sailing Teams

The Inter-collegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) has named its 2013 All-Academic Sailing Team. The 2013 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 2012 – 2013 academic year. The All-Academic Sailing Team was inaugurated in 2006. 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.

A seven-person committee comprised of representatives from each conference in the ICSA evaluates the nominated sailors. 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 who have proven to be highly competitive both academically and in national competition. This year, for the second time, the committee has also named an All-Conference Team. This team recognizes 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 32 All-Conference members.

'It was a challenging task for the committee to select these teams as there are so many qualified student athletes. The difficulty in naming these teams demonstrates the tremendous achievements of ICSA sailors on the water and in the classroom,' says Matt Lindblad, co-head coach of the MIT Varsity Sailing Team and chairman of the ICSA All-Academic Sailing Team Selection Committee.
