Both Bulldogs were recognized as ICSA Women's All-American Skippers, a coveted award given to only eight female skippers this year. This is a first-time recognition for Klingler, while Nordstrom previously received this honor after winning B-division at the 2018 Sperry Women's National Championship at Old Dominion University.
Nordstrom was additionally a top three finalist for the 2019 Quantum Women's Sailor of the Year award. The honor ultimately went to Ragna Agerup of Brown University, a former Olympian who won A division at the event this year.
The awards are decided by a representative committee which used a multi-faceted evaluation matrix to decide on which sailors they will bestow the prestigious honor of All - American.
