Christian Brothers Academy Sailing wrapped up another accolade-filled season this past weekend at the Atlantic Coast Championship in Rochester, New York.
The Colts qualified for the "ACCs" through their fourth place finish at the Mid-Atlantic District Championship in October. The Atlantic Coast Championship is the country's highest high school team event of the fall season and each team must qualify through one of seven districts in the U.S.
The high level of competition was evident from the start of the event, with almost any team capable of winning races throughout the two days of sailing on Lake Ontario. CBA was led by junior Michael Ehnot and sophomore Ryan Mullins, who together won the day on Sunday, to finish fourth out of 20 in their division. Ehnot and Mullins won two races and added three more races in the top-five on the weekend. The rest of the CBA team that finished 10th overall included Joe LaForgia '17, Chris Magno '17, Justin Modin '19 and John Cocuzza '20.
It was just the second time in team history that CBA has qualified for the Atlantic Coast Championship, with the last coming in 2010.
Overall, the fall season saw Christian Brothers win the annual Toms River Sailfest Cup for the third consecutive year and the fourth place finish at the District Championship was the team's best finish in program history.
Ehnot also qualified for the Singlehanded National Championship for the second straight year, remaining just one of two CBA sailors to ever qualify for the Singlehanded Nationals. Ehnot finished tied for 10th in the regatta, which was held in Galveston, Texas.
The Colts will head back out on the water in March, when the spring season begins.
