The Inter-Collegiate Sailing Association (ICSA) has named August Sturm (San Diego, Calif.), Junior, Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering to its 2017-18 All-Academic Sailing Team.
The All-Academic Sailing Team recognizes, “collegiate sailors who have achieved excellence in national and inter-conference competition as well as excelling at the highest academic level for the 2017-18 academic year. The criteria for the honorees are that he or she must be a Junior or Senior, have at least a 3.3 cumulative GPA or higher on a 4.0 scale, and be a starter or key reserve in at least seven university-sponsored regattas.”
A seven-person committee comprised of representatives from conferences in the ICSA evaluates the nominated sailors. This year’s All-Academic Team is comprised of 238 members.
