CHRISTCHURCH, VIRGINIA -The Southern Regional High School sailing team competed in the mid-Atlantic Championships in Virginia on April 14 and 15. This was to be Southern toughest competition this season.  The Rams battled hard on both days facing strong winds and competition.  The fleet included several youth world and national champions.

Southern finished in 11th place in the 18 team event.  Some of the highlights for the Rams included:

  • B Division skipper Tommy Green — with an alternating crew of Joe Mrazek, Brielle Willoughby and Bridget Green, scored top 10 finishes in 12 of the 18 races, including five in the top five. 
     
  • The Rams found competition more challenging in the A Division.  Dana Haig, Nate Ertle, Joe Mrazek and Brielle Willoughby alternated at crew and they found themselves at a weight disadvantage due to the winds being close to 20 knots.
     
  • Dana Haig managed six top ten finishes in the competition.

"We sailed better as the winds came down a bit on Sunday, and I left Virginia pleased with our effort and thrilled that our kids got to play for 36 races against some really great competition," said Southern Coach Stephen Warren.  "Our 11th place was the second best from a New Jersey school, behind Ranney's third-place showing that earned them a spot in the National Championships in Texas. Meanwhile, we will wait and hope for an invitation to the second tier national event in Annapolis."
