Recent Bowdoin Graduates Earn All-Academic Award From ICSA

BRUNSWICK, Maine - A pair of recent Bowdoin College graduates have earned Academic Awards from the Intercollegiate Sailing Association.

Ben Berg '12 and Jeff Goodrich '12 were tabbed as members of the 2012 ICSA All-Academic Sailing Team. Berg, a Neuroscience major, and Goodrich, an Economics major, were both honored as All-Conference selections. They are the first-ever ICSA All-Academic sailors from Bowdoin.

A seven-person committee comprised of representatives from each conference in the ICSA evaluates nominated sailors. 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.

The committee can select up to ten scholar athletes for both the First and Second All-Academic Teams. The committee has also names an All-Conference Team which recognizes other exemplary sailors who are also great representatives, but were not able to be included on the First or Second Teams.
