KING’S POINT, N.Y. – The Middle Atlantic Intercollegiate Sailing Association (MAISA) released the 2022 Coed Sailing All-MAISA Teams Sunday afternoon following the conclusion of the MAISA Open Dinghy Conference Championship hosted by the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy.

Junior Leo Boucher (West River, Md./South River) represented the St. Mary’s College of Maryland coed sailing team on the All-MAISA Skipper First Team while first-year Owen Hennessey (Washington, D.C./Severn) landed on the All-MAISA Skipper Second Team. This is Boucher’s third All-MAISA award while Hennessey is a first-time honoree.

Additionally, juniors Sam Muir (Goleta, Calif./Dos Pueblos) and Ellie Sekowsk  (Warwick, Md./Tome) were selected as All-MAISA Crew. Both are first-time All-MAISA awardees.

“Each day in their training, the Seahawk sailors push one another in an effort to be the most improved team in college sailing. The awards represent an honor not just for those whose names appear on the certificates but for all the Seahawks who strive to improve our team,” said the Seahawks sailing coaching staff. “The results at our conference championships certainly demonstrate the progress the entire team has made to this point in our championship season.”

This season, Boucher and Sekowski captured Division A at the Nevins Trophy on October 16-17 as well as won Division A at the Admiral’s Cup on April 23-24.
