The National Championship is divided into two National Semifinal competitions, both Eastern and Western regattas consisting of
18 teams, the top nine of which will advance to a Championship Round of 18 teams.

Fordham is in the Eastern Semifinal, which consists of nine varsity programs; BC, Bowdoin, Cornell, George Washington, Jacksonville,
St. Mary's, Stanford, Tufts and South Florida, and nine club teams led by BU and URI, two of the highest ranking teams in the country,
plus Northwestern, Texas A&M, Minnesota, USC, Virginia & Washington. 

The Western Semifinal consists of nine varsity and nine club teams, as well. The varsity programs are Charleston, Dartmouth, Eckerd, Georgetown, Hobart/William Smith, Coast Guard, Navy, Hawaii & Yale. The club teams are led by Brown, traditionally a club powerhouse,
plus Clemson, Tulane, UC Santa Barbara, Notre Dame, U/Penn, Vermont, Wisconsin & Western Washington.

I have no first-hand knowledge but apparently weather was an important factor for all teams, particularly this afternoon. The forecast was: 
"Scattered severe storms, with perhaps a few tornadoes and damaging winds, are possible from South Carolina and south Georgia into northern Florida and southern Alabama. Clusters of severe storms with hail and damaging winds may also flare up and dive east-southeast across central and south Texas." I saw photos and the flooding in Charleston today was quite serious.

Adelaide Ferguson '17 & Annika Ekholm '20 are sailing together and scored a 5-5-11-10 series for 9th place in A Division. Juniors Amanda
Stapp & Lauren Holderman tallied 16-11-17-11 to finish in 15th place in B Division. A little more consistency tomorrow and we can still crack the TOP 9 to qualifying for the championship round.

The standings after eight races are: (* = varsity team)

1  BU                                       25
2  URI                                      32
3  BC                                        41*
4  St. Mary's                              44*
5  GWU                                     45 *
6  Tufts                                     47 *
7  Bowdoin                                51 *
8  Stanford                                58 *
9  South Florida                         63 *

10 Cornell                                  71 *
11 FORDHAM                              86
12 USC                                       87
13 Jacksonville                           104 *
14 Virginia                                 107
15 Washington                           119
16 Northwestern                         124
17 Minnesota                              126
18 Texas A&M                             141 

Fordham remains in 11th place but dropped from nine to 24 points out of the ninth qualifying berth for the Women's National
Championship Regatta.

When describing a loss by the Green Bay Packers, Vince Lombardi once said, "We didn't lose the game. Time ran out before we won it!"

While Sailing & Football are two totally different sports, the similarities far outweigh the differences, and as in any sport, the cream
usually does rise to the top.

Due to the unusual currents, even under the best of circumstances, Charleston harbor is a very difficult venue in which to compete, as underscored by top teams such as Navy & Hobart/William Smith being 10th & 11th in the Western Semifinal yesterday.

Our Rams are hungry to compete today but sometimes forces beyond ones control take the ball out of a team's hand. Unfortunately, with today's weather forecast of "Scattered Thunderstorms between 10 AM and 4:00 PM," that may be the case. Let's hope for a change in the forecast because there is no way that the Race Committee will allow the event to continue with the possibility of lightning in the area. If today's competition is canceled, it is highly likely, that the current standings will carry forward and the top nine schools in the two Semifinals will advance to the championship round.

THEY'RE SAILING!!!

After 12 races, 6A & 6B, the standings are:

URI, BU, BC, SMC, Tufts, Stanford and GWU followed by

8.  South Florida           92 points
9.  Bowdoin                  94

10. Cornell                  103
11. FORDHAM              113
12. USC                      137

Our Rams were 23 points out of #9 and we're now 19 away.

Our series scores by race are:
Races     1     2     3     4     5     6     PTS
A:          5     5    11   10     9     4       44
B:        16    11   17   11     4    10      69

In A Division, Gabrielle Mascio '18 subbed as crew starting with Race 5A, and in B Division, Grace Howie '20 subbed
as skipper starting with Race 3B.

Currently, our A Division boat is in 8th place only 9 points out of 5th, and our B Division boat is tied for 13th only 6 points out of 11th
and 16 points away from 9th.

If the weather cooperates, our Rams can do this!

Sorry folks...a minor medical emergency took longer than I had anticipated.

Knock on wood, all is well, and following are the unofficial results of the two Semifinal regattas. The top 9 teams in each
qualified for the Championship Round. I don't anticipate any place changes but more information will be available and
I'll post it upon receipt.

Special kudos to graduated seniors Adelaide & Elizabeth for four great years, and to Adelaide for skippering her boat to a 1st Place finish in the final race of her college career!

To underscore how well our gals sailed, consider that they finished 7th at their MAISA Conference Championship behind 4th Hobart/William Smith, 5th Cornell & 6th U/Penn, which placed 12th, 11th & 10th at this regatta. The only team, which improved over Fordham was Navy, which placed 8th at the MAISA Championship and qualified for the championship round.

Glad to hear you're ok, Joe. The most important thing.

So to clarify, we missed by one place position to qualify for the Championship round? The final result?

Thanks, RB.

Yes, the results are now official and Fordham missed qualifying for the championship round by one place.

Our gals did a great job, and as Coach Lombardi might say,

"We didn't fail to qualify. Time ran out before we qualified!"
