Far from the landlocked College on the Hill, the Big Green sailors were right at home on the water. Led by senior Charlie Lalumiere and sophomore Rebecca McElvain, the Big Green won their first interconference team race in 15 years, taking home the trophy at the Lynne Marchiando Team Race in Boston, Massachusetts.

Their efforts are rewarded by being named the Hanover Brick and Brew Athletes of the Week.

Each week, DartmouthSports.com will spotlight two outstanding student-athletes - one male, one female - as the Hanover Brick and Brew Athletes of the Week. Student-athletes may be chosen based upon their efforts both on and off the field of competition.

Both Charles Lalumiere and Rebecca McElvain were members of the Big Green team that took first in the Lynne Marchiando Team Race. The victory was Dartmouth’s first interconference team race victory since 2002, when the Big Green took first in the Ted Ferrarone Team Race, a second tier national event. Saturday brought wind and snowy conditions for sailors, but Dartmouth was able to go undefeated in the first round robin of the regatta. On Sunday, the weather improved with a light, but sailable wind. Again, the Big Green performed well dropping just two races enroute to the victory. For their efforts, Lalumiere and McElvain were also honored as NEISA Sailors of the Week.
