MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – Three members of the Old Dominion University sailing team were named to the Intercollegiate Sailing Association (ICSA)’s 2013 All-Academic Sailing Team on Friday.

Senior skipper and team captain Dillon Paiva (Raleigh, N.C.), junior crew/skipper Rachel Austin (Clinton, Ohio) and senior crew Shannon Wilkins (Kennett Square, Pa.) represented Old Dominion on this year’s team.

The 2013 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 2012 – 2013 academic year. The All-Academic Sailing Team was inaugurated in 2006. 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.

A seven-person committee comprised of representatives from each conference in the ICSA evaluates the nominated sailors. The committee uses 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 First and Second All-Academic Teams who have proven to be highly competitive both academically and in national competition. This year, for the second time, the committee has also named an All-Conference Team. This team recognizes exemplary sailors who are also great representatives, but were not able to be included on the First or Second Teams.

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