Yesterday, while scanning the Athleticsí section of the University website, I saw the following:

"LAST YEAR FOR THE FIRST TIME IN SCHOOL HISTORY, FORDHAM HAD THREE DIFFERENT TEAMS - FOOTBALL, WOMEN'S BASKETBALL AND SOFTBALL - REACH THE NCAA PLAYOFFS."

This was terrific news but I would be less than honest, if I didnít admit to being disappointed that Sailing was not included. Presumably, it was omitted because Sailing is neither an NCAA nor varsity sport. However, as a club team, Sailing competes against the top varsity teams in the country. Had it been considered, its performance would have been eye-opening! Specifically, since 2011, Fordham has qualified for an ICSA National Championship Tournament 11 times!

Following are the specifics:

2011
Fordham placed 14th at Womenís National Semifinalís (Top 9 Advanced to Championship Round) (a)

2012
Fordham finished 7th at ICSA Menís Single-handed National Championship (b)

2013
Fordham placed 11th at Coed National Semifinalís (Top 9 advanced to Championship Round) (c)

Fordham finished 8th at ICSA Menís Single-handed National Championship

2014
Fordham placed 10th at Coed National Semifinalís (Top 9 advanced to Championship Round) (d)

Fordham placed 11th at Womenís National Semifinalís (Top 9 advanced to Championship Round) (d)

Fordham finished 16th at ICSA Menís Single-handed National Championship

2015
Fordham finished 14th (2nd among club teams) at ICSA Coed National Championship (e)

Fordham finished 11th (1st among club teams) at ICSA Team Race National Championship (f)

2016
Fordham placed 12th in Womenís National Semifinalís (Top 9 advanced to Championship Round)

Fordham finished 18th (4th among club teams) at ICSA Coed National Championship


(a) First time Fordham Sailing ever qualified for a National Championship competition
(b) First time Fordham ever qualified for a Single-handed National Championship
(c) First time Fordhamís Coed team qualified for the National Championship competition
(d) First time both Coed & Womenís teams qualified for their respective National Championships in same year
(e) First time Fordham ever qualified for the Championship Round
(f) First time Fordham ever qualified for the ICSA Team Race National Championship

As an FYI, Sailing was founded as a club sport in 1950-51; elevated to varsity status in '55-'56; demoted to club status in '71-'72; disbanded in '73-'74 after the experienced skippers graduated, and was resurrected as a club sport in January 2000. Never has it experienced national visibility and success, nor contributed toward Fordham's national championship aspirations more, than during the past six years.
