ICSA announces 2011 All-Academic Sailing Team

by Jennifer Mitchell on 18 Nov 2011
. .
The Intercollegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) has named its 2011 All-Academic Sailing Team.

The 2011 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 2010 – 2011 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.

'We have dedicated students with high standards,' Mitch Brindley, president of the ICSA explains. A seven-person committee comprised of representatives from each conference in the ICSA evaluates nominated sailors using 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 All-Academic Team and Honorable Mention Team.

This year’s team is comprised of eight All-Academic Team members and ten Honorable Mention All-Academic Team members. Matt Lindblad, head coach of the MIT Varsity Sailing Team and chairman of the ICSA All-Academic Sailing Team Selection Committee states: 'This year's team represents ICSA's most accomplished student athletes. All of the All-Academic Team members received some form of All-American recognition, as well as maintaining a GPA of 3.79 or above. Our nomination criteria is very high and of the 47 highly qualified nominees, these 18 student athletes have demonstrated great success in the classroom and on the water.'

For many of the senior sailors honored this year, this is their second time being recognized for their outstanding athletic and academic performance.

Heading into the 10th and final race, Marshall and Chris Doyle were tied on points at 30.
