Dana Bloch Named ICSA Honorable Mention All-American Crew

BRUNSWICK, Maine - The Intercollegiate Sailing Association has named Bowdoin senior Dana Bloch (Falmouth, Maine) as an Honorable Mention All-American crew.

A captain on this year's squad, Bloch helped lead the Polar Bears to a 17th-place finish at Sperry Women's Nationals last month. Her 2016-17 resume includes a win at the Captain Hurst Bowl as well as program-best finishes at the Graham Hall Team Race, the Friis Trophy and Marchiando Team Race.

Selected by a committee put together by the ICSA, All-American crew selections are based on top finishes as well as demonstrated leadership, outstanding body mechanics and boat handling skills as well as proven ability to improve the results of the skipper(s) with whom he or she sails.
