CHESTERTOWN, MD -- The Washington College sailing team is ranked 19th in the latest Sailing World National Co-Ed Top 20, which were released today.
The rankings are the first of the regular season. Washington College was unranked, but received 11 vote-points, in the preseason edition of the rankings. WAC sailed to a 10th-place finish at the Harry Anderson Trophy last weekend, a major intersectional regatta. Washington finished ahead of one team ranked in the Sailing World Preseason Top 20 as well as the five schools who were unranked but received more vote-points than the WAC sailors did.
Sailing World's college rankings are determined by an open coaches poll. Boston College is ranked number one in the current poll with Brown, Georgetown, Roger Williams, and St. Mary's College of Maryland rounding out the top five.
The Washington College sailing team will compete at the Centrall Fall #1 - a qualifying regatta for the War Memorial (MAISA Fall Championships) - this weekend in Toms River, NJ. Ocean County College will be the host school at the regatta.
