Morrison Named to All-Academic Team

CAMBRIDGE, MASS. (August 5, 2014) – The Inter-collegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) has named its 2014 All-Academic Sailing Team. The 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 2013 – 2014 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 conferences 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.

The committee can select up to ten scholar athletes for both the First and Second All-Academic Teams who have proven to be highly competitive both academically and in competition. This year, for the third time, the committee has also named an All-Conference Team. This team recognizes exemplary sailors who are also great representatives.

Justine Morrison, a Civil Engineering major from Merrimac, MA, was named to the All-Conference All-Academic Team after leading the sailing team to new heights during her senior year. Coast Guard finished sixth at the Women's National Championship, where Morrison crewed in A-Division, and tenth at the Coed National Championship, where Morrison crewed in B-Division. On top of a rigorous sailing schedule, she also maintained a high GPA and participated in numerous student organizations. 

"Justine's role on the team was critical to our success last season.  I couldn't be more thrilled that ICSA has recognized her accomplishments in the classroom as well," commented head coach Brian Swingly. "Her leadership, dedication, and perspective will truly be missed."

Morrison has been commissioned as a student engineer on Coast Guard Cutter Polar Star, an icebreaker out of Seattle, WA.
