CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Four members of the Old Dominion University Sailing team earned academic honors from the Inter-collegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) on Thursday morning, the ICSA announced.
A seven-person committee comprised of representatives from conferences in the ICSA evaluates the nominated sailors.
