ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — Thirteen female college sailors were recognized by the ICSA All-American Committee at the ICSA Women's National Championship awards banquet on Friday night. Three of those sailors were Yale Bulldogs.
Senior Claire Dennis and sophomore Morgan Kiss were two of 10 to be named All-American Women's Skippers and junior Marlena Fauer was one of three to be given an Honorable Mention All-American award. All three Bulldogs have been All-American awardees at least once before.
Dennis, who graduated this spring, had her strongest year of collegiate sailing results this year. She finished in the top three in her division at all but two of the regattas that she entered. Also, she finished third at the ICSA Women's Singlehanded National Championship.
Kiss, who was an All-American last year too, also rarely finished outside of the top three in her division this year. She has been the Bulldogs' starting A-division skipper all season.
Fauer sailed in fewer women's regattas this season because she was also needed as a crew for Yale's coed sailing team race team. However, she finished in the top five in her division at all the women's regattas that she did sail and she won B division at the ICSA Women's Nationals which ended yesterday.
