Crimson Finishes Seventh at ICSA Women’s Nationals
CASCADE LOCKS, Ore.—Only one set of official races was completed on the final day of the Sperry Top-Sider/Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association due to lack of wind Thursday, and Harvard finished the event in seventh place.
The rookie duo of Morgan Russom and Isabel Ruane posted a second straight third-place finish out of 18 boats to cap the competition. That performance lifted the pair into fifth place in the B division with 49 points. They finished the week with four top-three showings, including two race wins. They edged St. Mary's and Connecticut College for fifth by tiebreaker.
In the tightly packed A division, Emily Lambert and Alexandra Jumper finished 10th with 63 points, one back of ninth-place Coast Guard and 11 points outside of the top five. They finished outside the top half of the field just once during the regatta and earned one runner-up finish.
Harvard totaled 112 points as a team, seven more than sixth-place Old Dominion and 13 more than fifth-place Yale. Rhode Island captured the national title with 83 points, followed by Connecticut College (93), St. Mary's (95) and Brown (97).
