MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. – Rising senior Elizabeth Chambers (Mooresville, N.C.) was recently named to the 2013 Intercollegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) All-Academic Second Team.
An exercise science major at the College of Charleston, Chambers boasts a 3.80 grade-point average. This past season, she helped crew B-Division to a first-place finish as the nationally-ranked CofC women’s sailing team won the SAISA Women’s Championship title in April.
Chambers also crewed B-Division as the Cougars placed seventh overall at the ICSA Sperry Top-Sider Women’s National Championship regatta in May. She and skipper Clerc Cooper (New Orleans, La.) turned in eight top-five finishes through 18 races including a win in race No. 13.
As a team, CofC turned in a combined spring GPA of 3.016. The Cougars also claimed the 2013 ICSA/Gill Coed National Championship – the fourth time to do so in program history.
The ICSA recognizes collegiate sailors who have achieved excellence in national and inter-conference competition as well as excelling at the highest academic level for the 2012-13 academic school year.
Inaugurated in 2006, a nominated sailor must have a minimum of a 3.5 cumulative grade-point average (on a 4.0 scale), be a junior or senior in academic standing and they must be a key starter or reserve on the school’s sailing team.
The Intercollegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) is the governing authority for sailing competition at colleges and universities throughout the U.S. and in some parts of Canada. For more information, log on to: http://collegesailing.org
