Seahawks compete at Captain Hurst Bowl and Great Herring Pond Open
HANOVER, N.H. - This weekend the Salve Regina sailing team competed in the Captain Hurst Bowl at Dartmouth College. Over the two days, conditions were extremely challenging, with shifty winds gusting to 25 knots.
Salve Regina senior skipper Peter Pellegrini (Kingston, Mass.) and crews Mary Margaret Clawson (Maplewood, N.J.) and Sarah Muzyka (South Yarmouth, Mass.) were able to battle the 22-team fleet to secure a hard earned 11th-place finish in A Division.
In B Division, junior Kyle Carney (Huntington Beach, Calif.) and sophomore Mary Zeolla (Simi Valley, Calif.) fought hard but continued to get unfortunate breaks. They still were able to sail top ten finishes to keep the team in the battle for a single digit finish against the top teams from around the country.
After battling over the two days in the top ten, the team finally finished 16th overall, beating teams such as MIT, Northeastern, and Cornell.
