Saturday, November 11:

Mt. Pleasant, SC- Another brisk day here on Charleston harbor with temperatures flirting with the 30s and breeze out of the north at 15-20. The repechage produced the Boston College Eagles who won with an impressive 3-0 record. Following them into the quarter finals were the Washington Huskies who went 2-1. In the quarter finals, USF beat Georgetown, Charleston bested Washington, Bowdoin defeated Navy, and in a surprising 5 match series Boston College took down the #2 ranked Stanford Cardinal. The Race Committee did a great job adjusting to the easterly that came in for the start of the semi finals. PRO Ryan Davidson and his team were on point transition to the changing breeze direction. In the semi finals, Boston College continued their momentum by winning two races against USF. Charleston also kept the ball rolling going two races up on Bowdoin. The semi finals are first to 3 wins. Tomorrow the rest of the semi finals, finals, and consolation races will take place. A gorgeous forecast is projected as a new match race national champion will be crowned!

Sunday, November 12:

Mt. Pleasant, SC- A new match race champion was crowned as the Boston College Eagles upset the previously unbeaten Charleston Cougars 3-1. After finishing off the South Florida Bulls, the Eagles led by skipper Scotty Sinks used their remarkable speed to best Christophe Killian and team of Elizabeth Pemberton, Jack Thompson, and Stefano Peschiera. The teams took very different routes to the finals as the Cougars blazed through the round robin, quarter finals, and semi finals with a perfect record. The Eagles had a rough round robin tallying only 3 wins but dominated the repechage and had a great 5 race set against the Stanford Cardinal in the quarter finals to advance to the semis. There they defeated Sean Cornell and his USF team to face Charleston in the finals. A huge thanks to our race management team led by PRO Ryan Davidson and the rockstar umpire crew led by Steve Wrigley. Congratulations to the Boston College Eagles who have reclaimed the Cornelluis Shields Sr. Trophy to become the national match race champions!
