New, comments

The three-peat wasn't meant to be as the Boston College co-ed sailing team finished in seventh place at the 2012 ICSA / Gill Dinghy National Championship. The Eagles finished with a combined 231 points over three days and 26 races down in the third National Championship event on Lake Travis in Austin, Texas.

The A Division team of Anne Haeger ('12), Patrick Hession ('13) and Laura McKenna ('13) finished with 94 points with seven top-five finishes but one costly disqualification in race 2A. The B Division crew -- Alex Cook ('13), Briana Provancha ('12), William Bailey ('15), Laura McKenna ('13), Elizabeth Barnard ('15) and Molly Clarke ('13) -- finished with 137 points and four top-five finishes.

The Eagles finished tied with Hobart and William Smith Colllege (231) for sixth, but lost the head-to-head tiebreaker based on number of first place finishes. Georgetown took home the National title with 137 points, while Roger Williams (169), Yale (171), Charleston (207) and Harvard (213) rounded out the top five.

Boston University finished in 11th.

In addition to BC's seventh place finish in the co-ed National Championship, the Eagles took home the women's title and placed fourth in the team race. Congratulations on another strong season on the water.

Go Eagles!
