ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – Prior to graduation, the Tars wrapped up the 2018-19 season in blustery conditions on Boca Ciega Bay at the SAISA Women's Championships.
"Conditions were tough out there and you hate to see the day cut short by injury," said Coach Dave Herbster. "But I am proud of these sailors for making it count for Rollins."
The effort put a cap on a successful year for the Tars who now look back on highlights that included sailing 16 ICSA regattas (most ever for Rollins), the Tars sailed every SAISA points regatta, Rollins posted nine 1st place finishes in ICSA races (Rollins' first 1st place finishes since 2015). The Tars also won the Harris Kempner Memorial in Galveston and hosted two developmental regattas. Individually three Tars won honors as SAISA Sailors of the Week, two Tars were nominated for ICSA All-Academic Team, and two dozen Tars sailed SAISA regattas.
Looking beyond summer, the Tars project to return in the fall with a roster of 18 sailors that includes the return of the team's co-MVP's (Nick Baker and Simon Munoz), Bullet Award winners (Teagan Walsh and Corinne Keogh), Most Improved (Cooper Anderson), and Rookie of the Year (Jennifer Morgan).
