2022 Quantum Women's College Sailor of the Year: Sophia Reineke, Boston College, 2022

Finalist: Carmen Cowles, Yale University, 2025

From Sophia: "Winning Quantum Women's Sailor of the year is kinda wild to think about. There was a time last semester where I had considered fully stepping away from the sport. To have the support of not only my teammates but all of my competitors to stick with it and finish off these five years strong means more to me than any of them will ever know. This sport is different than most in that everyone you compete against are people you've known your whole life. We're all family, and because of that I feel like this win is for all of us. I couldn't have done it without them; my competitors, my teammates, and everyone in between. I'm beyond grateful for the entire college sailing community, and stoked to have been selected for this award out of a field of extremely talented and dedicated women."

2022 Everett B Morris College Sailor of the Year: Shawn Harvey, Yale University, 2022

From Shawn: "It's an honor to take home this award. I want to thank my parents, coaches, teammates, and everyone who has helped me on this five year journey. When I took the school year off due to Covid, I had one thing on my mind - I want to be able to do college sailing one last year. Fortunately, everything went as planned and we were all allowed to compete as normal. College sailing truly is the most fun sailing out there. The amount of quality friends you gain through the sport is incredible, and the fact that you see them every weekend makes it so much better. All around, this is truly an unforgettable moment."

Robert H Hobbs Sportsman of the Year: Jack Hogan, Georgetown University, 2022

Finalist: Jack Murphy, Brown University, 2022

From Jack: "On the Georgetown sailing team, our motto is As One. It means that we work together to achieve collective success. Embracing that philosophy allows us to achieve more than we would individually. The way I see it, a similar principle applies to sportsmanship. My individual goal is to perform to the best of my ability, but the collective goal is to compete against others who are doing the same. Regattas, whether a preseason scrimmage or nationals, are made better when everyone is sailing their best. Whoever wins deserves recognition for their performance and everyone who competed deserves respect for their effort. On the water and off, I try my best to recognize that I'm a part of something bigger than myself. After taking last year off of school as I waited for our team to be able to return to play, I was grateful for the opportunity to compete for all of this year. That perspective was on my mind every race, even the tough ones. It's a privilege to leave college sailing with so many good memories and great friendships."

ICSA Hall of Fame Inductees

Jim Rousmaniere Award for Outstanding Student Leadership: Jack Valentino '22 of Bates College

From Jack: "It's such an honor to receive this year's James Rousmaniere Award for student leadership. I'm so grateful to my teammates and the many friends I've made along the way in NEISA and the ICSA who have made my college sailing experience so fulfilling! This network of undergrads, coupled with the tremendous support of ICSA coaches, was crucial to the launch of TIDE in 2020 and the launch of the National Invitational for Regional Teams this past Spring. I'd like to thank Ted Lutton, Ethan Baker, Harry Stevenson, Courtney Tally, and Alli Fischman for their above-and-beyond commitment to Bates Sailing and Bates' successful co-hosting of this year's National Invitational. I'd also like to thank Preston Anderson, Frank Pizzo, Justin Assad, Mike Kalin, and the rest of NEISA for their continued support of student leadership and student-led teams. Last, but not least, a big thank you to Diana Weidenbacker, Matt Wordell, Jared Reineck, Sam Lowry, and Jeff Dusek for all their efforts in putting this regatta together. Thank you to College Sailing and all my teammates at Bates for being such a memorable part of my undergraduate experience!"

Graham Hall Award for Outstanding Service by a Professional: Allison Jolly, Head Coach for the University of South Florida

From Allison: "As I reflect on all of the coaches, past and present, who have been mentors and role models, I am both humbled and honored to receive this award. While I only knew Graham Hall during a brief stint trying out for the America3 team, I was impressed by his demeanor; focused, intense, but somehow at the same time "chill". Just being nominated for the Graham Hall Outstanding Service by a Professional award is a milestone, but to be named a recipient is a tribute to those who have welcomed me to the coaching profession and who have shown me through words and actions how to be a credit to my student-athletes and to college sailing. Thank you all very much!"

Campbell Family Award for Lifetime Service: Angus Robertson

From his nomination letter: "Angus Robertson has been a crucial member of the sailing community in the Philadelphia area for the better part of the last two decades. Speaking as someone who worked closely with Angus during my time at University of Pennsylvania, I can safely say that the numerous accomplishments of all three of the college sailing programs in the area (University of Pennsylvania, Villanova University, and Drexel University) would not have been possible without his help."

Outstanding Service by a Volunteer: Charles F. McEntee III

From his nomination letter: "Without Bud McEntee, Fordham University would not have a Sailing Team today! To explain requires an historical perspective. The Fordham University Sailing Team was founded as a Club Sport in 1950 by four experienced sailors from the Classes of 1952 and 1953. They and their immediate successors liked to sail but did minimal recruiting. In May 1955 the team consisted of five Juniors, no seniors, no sophomores and no freshmen. In response to a bulletin board notice seeking freshmen, three of my classmates and I met the Team Captai n, who inquired about our experience. Jack Wiley had grown up racing in the Caribbean, Dick Scallon and Gerry Thornton had never set foot in a sailboat, and I had been in a sailboat and knew how to steer."

Leonard Fowle Trophy for the Best Overall Team: Yale University

From Yale Coach Zach Leonard: "I am so proud of the effort everyone on our team put in this year. It was a great year of college sailing." In addition, Coach Bill Healy added, "We have a really tight team. Everyone pulls for each other and everyone learns from one another. Our upperclassmen were outstanding leaders who have been through tough events like this before and it really helped our younger starters achieve great things."

The ICSA annually confers All American honors on competitors who demonstrated outstanding performance in competition during the year.

  • The quality of competition in which the record was achieved
  • Results achieved competing with different skippers and crews

  • How the record compares to those of All-Americans selected in previous years

The committee does not consider the following factors:

  • Candidates' records in previous years
  • Candidates' records in non-college events
  • The diversity of teams and conferences represented
The committee selects All-Americans in the following categories:
  • The number indicated are the maximum that may be chosen in a year. The committee is not obligated to select the maximum.
