AUSTIN, TEXAS - The Old Dominion University coed sailing team finished their season on Friday at the 2012 Intercollegiate Sailing Association's (ICSA)/Gill Dingy National Championship on Lake Travis. The Monarchs finished in 17th place with 318 points.

On Friday, they finished in 16th, 10th and 14th place in their three races.
The Monarchs' B-Division team of sophomore skipper Brady Stagg and senior crew Emily Reich placed 15th overall with a score of 144. Senior captain Gavin Rudolph and sophomore crew Jill Fattibene raced in the ninth and 10th races for ODU in the B-Division.
