NEW HAVEN, Conn.  – In addition to winning the Women's New England Championship this past weekend, four members of the No. 1 Yale women's sailing received individual honors for their performances throughout the season.  Yale was the only team to win four "All-NEISA First Team" awards which recognized sailors for being the best in the district.   

 

Seniors Amanda Salvesen and Eugenia Custo Greig were named first team all-NEISA crews while junior Morgan Kiss and senior Marlena Fauer were named first team all-NEISA skippers.

 

Since September, these Bulldogs have led their team to victory at 10 out of the 15 regattas that they have entered.  Furthermore, none of them has finished worse than third in their division at a regatta this spring.

 

With the regular season behind them now, the Bulldogs are looking ahead to May when they will compete at the ICSA Semifinal Championship and, if all goes as planned, at the nationals immediately after that.
