CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Christine Gosioco and Nick Sertl of the Harvard sailing team were both named to the All-NEISA first team, as announced by the conference this weekend.
Gosioco and Sertl sail together for the Crimson in the A-Division and were previously named to the NEISA Short List at the beginning of the season. The duo has tallied a remarkable 10 top-five placements in this spring's regattas, including three first-place finishes.
Additionally, Kevin Coakley was honored with the NEISA Student-Leadership Award. The award recognizes extraordinary leadership and achievement by an undergraduate whose efforts have made a significant contribution to the development, progress, and success of his or her team, conference or the ICSA. Coakley will graduate this spring with a concentration in economics.
Closing out regular season competition this weekend, the Crimson captured an 11th-place finish at the NEISA Coed Championship/US Coast Guard Alumni Bowl.
Sailing in the B-Division, Eli Burnes, Henry Burnes, Nicholas Karnovsky, Catherine Tang, and Jessica Williams earned a 10th-place finish with 128 points, narrowly missing Yale in ninth at 124 points. Kirstin Anderson, Christine Gosioco and Nick Sertl registered nine top-10 finishes in the A-Division for an 11th-place finish, adding 135 points to the Crimson's 263 points.
With their ninth-place finish at the NEISA Women's Championship last weekend, the women qualified for the Women's National Championship at Old Dominion, May 22-25.
