King's Point, NY - Stanford's Varsity Co-ed team took 3rd overall at this weekends annual Admiral's Cup, hosted by the US Merchant Marine Academy in King's Point, NY. Twenty schools competed in twelve races in each division, with top-ranked teams Harvard, ODU, Navy and Tufts finishing within a few points of the Stanford Cardinal.

In C Division, competing in singlehanded Lasers, Stanford junior David Kenny battled with Navy's Spencer Webber until the last race- ending up 2 points behind Webber and finishing in 2nd place in C Division.

In B Division, Peter Deming '04 and crew Amy Halvorsen had a slow start in Saturday's light air, but as the breeze came on, so did the Cardinal sailors, posting almost all top-five finishes. After all 12 races, Deming/Halvo had earned third place in B-Division.

Sailing in A Division, Stanford juniors Ted Conrads and crew Kara Sweeney managed to stay in the hunt in the tough fleet. Only a few top-ten finishes put the duo in 14th place in A Division.

Sunday's light air caused the USMMA to call the regatta at 1pm. This solid finish puts the Cardinal sailors on the defensive leading into the last two weeks of the regular season. The next event for the Co-ed team is the Pacific District qualifiers on April 26-28 at U Hawaii. The Coed National Championship is in June at U Hawaii.
