STANFORD, Calif. – Stanford earned a second-place finish in the Fowle Trophy, the Cardinal’s best result in the point series competition in program history.
The Fowle Trophy is a competition based on teams’ finishes at the six national championships throughout the year. The Cardinal finished with 76.67 points, trailing only Yale with 84.91 points. The second-place mark also ranks the highest of any Pacific Coast Collegiate Sailing Conference member all-time.
It was a record-breaking year for the Cardinal, which capped its spring season with strong results at the APS Team Race Championship (3rd), Gill Coed Championship (4th) and Sperry Top-Sider Women’s Nationals (12th). Stanford’s third-place team race result was its first podium finish since 1996. The Cardinal’s fourth-place finish at the coed championship is its best result in program history.
Stanford built momentum during the fall with a sixth-place finish at the ICSA Match Race Nationals, three top-10 placements at the ICSA/LP Singlehanded Nationals and a seventh-place finish at the Men’s Singlehanded Nationals.
