Eckerd College alumna and former Eckerd women's sailing crew member Catherine Hamman '12 was named to the Intercollegiate Sailing Association 2012 All-Academic Team as announced by the organization earlier this week.
The 2012 All-Academic Team recognizes collegiate sailors who have achieved excellence in national and inter-conference competition as well as excelling at the highest level in the classroom for the 2011-12 academic year.
A nominated sailor must have a minimum of a 3.5 GPA (on a 4.0 scale), junior or academic standing, and they must be a key starter or reserve on a school's sailing team.
Each school is allowed three nominations.
This year's All-Academic Team is comprised of nine First Team members, 10 Second Team members and 16 All-Conference members.
Hamman, a native of Carbondale, Ill., and graduate in the field of Business Administration, was named to the All-Conference All-Academic Sailing Team.
"This year's selections are an excellent representation of the achievements on the water and in the classroom," said Matt Lindblad, co-head coach of the MIT Varsity Sailing Team and chairman of the ICSA All-Academic Sailing Team Selection Committee. "Eight of the team members also received a form of All-American recognition and most were competitive at the highest levels of collegiate sailing competition."
