NORFOLK, Va. – Old Dominion University sailing senior skipper and team captain Dillon Paiva has been named the Sailor of the Week by US Sailing for competition between May 30 and June 5, it was announced on Thursday.

Last week, the Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association (ICSA)’s Sportsman of the Year was presented to Paiva at the annual ICSA awards banquet at the St. Petersburg Yacht Club.

Paiva (Raleigh, N.C.) has been a staple in the Old Dominion sailing program having been the A-Division skipper in each of his past three seasons. He was awarded the Robert H. Hobbs Sportsmanship Award, which annually goes to the ICSA’s Sportsman of the Year. The trophy honors Robert Hobbs (MIT, '64), past Executive Vice President of ICSA, past President of U.S. Sailing (1992-1994), and former chair of the U.S. Sailing Olympic Committee.

Becoming just the second Old Dominion sailor ever to earn the award, Paiva joined Samantha Ficksman, who was named the ICYRA Sportsman of the Year in 1995-96.

Paiva powered old Dominion and the Monarchs to a ninth place finish in the ICSA/Gill Coed Dinghy National Championships last week in St. Petersburg, which was ODU’s best outcome since they took fourth in San Francisco in 2009.
