Drumm Named NEISA Coed Sailor of the Week

The award is the first for Drumm in 2015 (Athletic Communications).

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. – Michael Drumm of the Harvard coed sailing team has been named NEISA Coed Sailor of the Week, as announced by the organization.

Drumm helped Harvard to a 12-3 record at the Marchiando Trophy Team Race at MIT, guiding the Crimson to a runner-up finish.  Drumm sailed as a skipper and crew, pushing Harvard to wins its first 10 matchups of the event, including a win over eventual champion Yale. His top moment in the regatta came after his dinghy capsized. Drumm quickly righted the boat, and was still able to sail to a first-place result in the race.

Harvard sailing has posted three second-place finishes in 2015, and will compete in three events April 11-12. The Crimson hosts the NEISA Team Race Championship (Fowle Trophy) on the Charles River, and also sends student-athletes to the Emily Wick Trophy (at Coast Guard) and Mystic Lake Team Race (at Tufts).
