NEW HAVEN, CONN. – At the conclusion of the New England Championship, the 2018 All NEISA Awards were announced. The All NEISA team is selected every year for both crews and skippers that compete regularly in the New England region. Some of the criteria that are looked at are not only the sailing record over the course of the semester, but also leadership within the team. For crews, how much they improve the ability of the skipper that they sail with is largely taken into account.

This year the Bulldogs received close to a record number of awards, with Claudia Loiacono, Cate Mollerus, and Claire Huebner being First Team All NEISA Crews. Chrissie Klingler was named a Second Team All NEISA Skipper and both Casey Klingler and Louisa Nordstrom were name First Team All NEISA Skippers.

The Bulldogs received a total of six All NEISA Awards, the most of any school within the New England region.
