NORFOLK, Va. - Old Dominion University sailing seniors Emily Reich and Jessica Milligan were named to the 2011 Intercollegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) All-Academic Sailing Team. Reich earned First-Team honors while Milligan received Honorable Mention accolades.

"We have dedicated students with high standards," president of the ICSA and ODU head coach Mitch Brindley said.

A seven-person committee comprised of representatives from each conference in the ICSA evaluates nominated sailors using the same competition data that is used to determine the ICSA All-American Team, which honors sailors for their exceptional competitive performance. The committee can select up to ten scholar athletes for both the All-Academic Team and Honorable Mention Team.

Reich, a senior from Oak Bluffs, Mass. is majoring in recreation and tourism management and posts a 3.8 grade point average.

Milligan, also a senior from Chesapeake, Va., is majoring in exercise science and has a 3.9 GPA.

The 2011 All-Academic Sailing Team recognizes collegiate sailors who have achieved excellence in national and inter-conference competition as well as excelling at the highest academic level for the 2010 - 2011 academic year. 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 or reserve on a school's sailing team. Each school is allowed three nominations.
