CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Seniors Philip Crain (Houston, Texas) and Steven Drapcho (Newtown, Pa.) were named Coed Sailors of the Week by the New England Intercollegiate Sailing Association following their victory in the B Division of the Sherman Hoyt Trophy. Their performance helped nationally-ranked No. 13 MIT clinch first place in the regatta held last weekend at Brown University.
Crain and Drapcho found themselves atop the standings courtesy of seven top-five finishes in 12 rounds of action. The duo clinched first place in four outings, was the runner-up in the second race, and finished third in the third and seventh rotations.
The Engineers look to carry the momentum into this weekend's competitions as they will be racing in the Erwin Schell Trophy, the Victorian Coffee Urn, and the Nickerson Trophy.
