NORFOLK, Va. – Friday concluded the competition for the Inter-collegiate Sailing Association Sperry Women’s National Championship hosted by Old Dominion University, where the Dartmouth sailing team finished 10th out of 18 teams.

With a total of 352 points Dartmouth took 10th place, ahead of Ivy League foes Harvard who came in 15th with 424 points and Penn who finished last with 460.
