ANNAPOLIS, MD — The Southern Regional Sailing team charged from behind to gain an impressive third place finish in the Phebe King National Invitational at Annapolis, MD this past weekend.  

This event is one of the elite regattas on the national high school calendar,. The regatta included 18 teams from ten states.

"Saturday's conditions were light with a vicious chop, and Southern sailors, more accustomed to flatter water, struggled to adapt. At one point we dropped to as low as 13th.place," said Southern coach Stephen Warren. "But as the wind filled a little in the afternoon the team began to settle in."

Sophomore Brielle Willoughby, with freshman Bridget Green crewing, kept Southern close. Tommy Green stepped in and sailed three strong races in the A Division. At the end of the day Southern sat in seventh place after 14 races, but within striking distance of the top five. 

"Sunday morning brought more familiar conditions as sailors were greeted with a 10-12 knot southeasterly winds. The B Division hit the water first, and Brielle and Bridget picked up where they left off, sailing a 2-5 set to start off an absolutely awesome Sunday performance. Senior Dana Haig, who had struggled in A Division on Sunday, came back strong with a couple of top-5 finishes, and with consistent results continuing through the day, Southern soon clawed back to the top five." 

Other teams began to falter on Sunday. Willoughby and Green jumped out to an early lead and never looked back, winning the race easily and securing a third overall for the team. The final race also gave the ladies a second in the B Division. This was Brielle Willoughby first time skippering in a major event.

Southern traveled with six sailors and all six contributed. Joe Mrazek and Nate Ertle subbed as crew members. The Phebe King is an extremely competitive event, second only to the National Championship on the spring fleet sailing national calendar. This is the second year Southern has been invited to this major event.

The Rams will compete in the New Jersey State Championship next weekend in Shrewsbury,/. The Girls State Championship will take place on 26 and 27 in Toms River.
