Molly Clarke and Kelly Roy Earn Academic Honors
July 12, 2013
The 2013 All-Academic Sailing Team recognizes collegiate sailors who have achieved excellence in national and inter-conference competition as well as excelling at the highest academic level for the 2012 - 2013 academic year. The All-Academic Sailing Team was inaugurated in 2006. A nominated sailor must have a minimum of a 3.5 cumulative GPA (on a 4.0 scale), junior or senior academic standing and they must be a key starter or reserve on a school's sailing team.
A seven-person committee comprised of representatives from each conference in the ICSA evaluates the nominated sailors. The committee uses the same competition data that is used to determine the ICSA All-American Team, which honors sailors for their exceptional competitive performance.
Clarke, a native of Cumberland, R.I., was named to the 2013 ICSA Second All-Academic team. The senior graduated in May with a degree in biology. Clarke, a three-time Athletics Director's Award for Academic Achievement honoree, also won the Sailing team Leadership Award. She was also a member of the 2011 Co-ed National Championship team.
Roy, a native of Pewaukee, WI, was named to the 2013 ICSA All-Conference All-Academic team. She graduated from BC in May with a degree in economics and psychology. Roy helped the Eagles capture the 2013 NEISA Women's Championship and Reed Trophy. She was named a NEISA All-Conference second team this past season.
