Eckerd Trio Recognized to ICSA All-Conference All-Academic Sailing Team

The Intercollegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) has elected three members of the Eckerd College coed and women's programs as part of the 2013 All-Conference All-Academic Sailing Team.

Accomplished graduates Wes Byrne '13 and Emily Mitchell '13 along with rising senior skipper Solvig Sayre '14 were all chosen through a seven-person committee featuring representatives from each conference.

The 2013 All-Academic Sailing Team recognizes collegiate sailors who have achieved excellence in national and interconference competition as well as excelling at the highest level for the 2012-13 academic year.

"It takes a lot of dedication to concentrate on sailing while also taking care of academics," said EC Head Coach Kevin Reali. "To be recognized for a combination of those two is very good. We're very proud of our student-athletes for their work in the classroom."

A nominated sailor must have a minimum of a 3.5 cumulative GPA (on a 4.0 scale), junior or senior academic standing and they must be a key starter reserve on a school's sailing team.

This year's All-Academic Team is comprised of nine First Team members, 10 Second Team members and 32 All-Conference members.

Byrne graduated with his degree in Psychology, Mitchell majored in Environmental Studies during her career and Sayre is completing her education in the field of International Relations.
