CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - The Harvard coed sailing team captured the Nevins Trophy over the weekend at Kings Point with a cumulative score of 131, edging Georgetown by four points. The Crimson also sent squads to three other regattas highlighted, by an A-division win in the Mrs. Hurst Bowl.

In an overall team effort, Harvard secured first place at the Nevins Trophy with only one top finish in 19 races across three divisions. That first-place finish came from the A-division pair of Alan Palmer and Quincy Bock, who sailed to score of 59. Senior John Stokes skippered with Meghan Wareham and Marie Appel, as the trio notched a second-place finish competing in the B division, tallying 37 points. In an individual effort, Tedd Himler finished in fourth place in the C division. His score of 35 was just three points behind John Wallace of St. Mary's (Md.) and Chris Barnard of Georgetown.

The Harvard women's team also sailed well over the weekend finishing fifth out of 19 teams at the Mrs. Hurst Bowl, hosted by Dartmouth. Emily Lambert and Alexandra Jumper competed together in the A division finishing with a division low 25 points thanks in large part to five first-place finishes in eight races.

At the Hatch Brown Trophy, hosted by Boston University, the A-division duo of juniors Brendan Kopp and William White finished in second place with 50 points. Harvard finished 17th overall.

At the Boston Harbor Invitational, a coed regatta, the Crimson finished 16th.

Harvard's coed team will race Tuesday afternoon in the Midweek Tech Invitational at MIT before competing in four regattas this weekend. The women's squad will be in action at the Women's Regis Bowl hosted by BU this weekend.
