ITHACA, N.Y. - The 14th ranked Old Dominion sailing Monarchs finished fifth at the MAISA Team Race Regatta this past weekend at Cornell's Merrill Family Sailing Center.
The Monarchs sailed to a 3-4 record in the first round-robin, posting wins over SUNY Maritime, Washington College and Cornell. In round-robin number two, ODU went 4-3, including a big win over first-place finisher and third-ranked Georgetown.
Old Dominion's 7-7 overall record was just short of qualifying it for the Final Four. No. 6 St. Mary's College, No. 10 Hobart/William Smith, No. 3 Georgetown and No. 8 Navy battled it out in the final four with Georgetown narrowly prevailing.
ODU sailing will return to the water April 16-17 at the America Trophy Regatta in Annapolis, Md. and the Wick Shrew Women's Regatta in New London, Conn.
