Raiders finish fifth in the nation in sailing champs
Ransom Everglades’ sailing team finished fifth at the Interscholastic Sailing Association Mallory Dinghy National Championships at Mission Bay Yacht Club in San Diego June 3-5. Competing against 20 teams from around the nation, the Raider sailors overcame their unfamiliarity with the venue to post strong results throughout the weekend, led by Griggs Diemar '25, Boris Bialer '22 skipper Jackson McAliley '23 and team captain Eva Gonzalez-Whitehouse '22. Sailors Stephan Baker '22, Livia Hermann '22, Olivia Drulard '23, Ian Fox '24 and Emery Diemar '24 also contributed.
The regatta concluded a stellar season for Ransom Everglades, which under coach Joe Logan finished second in the South Atlantic Interscholastic Sailing Association Baker Team Race in Charleston, S.C., and the SAISA Fleet Racing Championship in St. Petersburg. The Raiders also finished second overall in the SAISA season rankings.
