Five Hoyas Named Sailing All-Americans

July 1, 2016

Following Georgetown's capture of the Gill Coed Dinghy National Championship, five Hoya sailors were named Intercollegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) 2015-16 All-Americans following an online awards show on Thursday evening. The names of the winners will be added to the ICSA Hall of Fame display located in the Robert Crown Center at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md.

Nevin Snow (San Diego, Calif./Cathedral Catholic), already awarded the Everett B. Morris Memorial Trophy for the Marlow Ropes College Sailor of the Year for a second-straight year, was named an ICSA Coed All-American Skipper. This is Snow's fourth-consecutive year earning All-America honors. Snow is the fifth Hoya to be named the College Sailor of the Year and it is the seventh nod in the last 11 years as Andrew Campbell earned the honor in 2006, Chris Behm in 2008, Charlie Buckingham in 2009 and 2011, Chris Barnard in 2012 and Snow in 2015.

This season, Snow placed first with his team at the MAISA Match Race Championship, eighth at the Men's Singlehanded National Championship, second with his team at the 2016 Laser Performance Team Race National Championship and first overall and third in A division with his team at the 2016 Gill Coed National Championship.

Fellow senior, Sean Golden (Duxbury, Mass./Tabor Academy) was named Honorable Mention Coed All-American. Paired with Isabelle Luzuriaga (Charleston, S.C./Ashley Hall) in the B division of the Gill Coed Dinghy National Championship, Golden helped the Hoyas moved past Yale and captured the title in June.

Luzuriaga was also honored for her performance in the national championship as she was named an ICSA Crew All-American along with sophomore Meaghan MacRae (Melrose, Mass./Tabor Academy) and senior Bettina Redway (Providence, R.I./St. George's). Luzuriaga previously earned the distinction in 2015 and this is the first honor for MacRae and Redway.

Senior MaryKate Mezzetti (Hyannis, Mass./Barnstable) rounded out Georgetown's recognition as she was named an Honorable Mention Women's All-American.
