Senior sailor Alex Smith (Wantagh, N.Y./General Douglas MacArthur) is this week's Shoreman of the Week. Smith's strong finish as a skipper at the Leroy Grant Trophy over the weekend helped propel the sailing team to a spot in the America Trophy, the MAISA Spring Co-Ed Dinghy Championships.
Smith and crew Allison Cochran finished third, fifth, and third, in the final three A Division races at the Grant Trophy. The two third-place finishes were the team's best A Division finishes of the weekend and proved crucial to Washington's overall third-place finish, which enabled the team to secure one of the final six berths in the America Trophy.
This is the third career Shoreman of the Week honor for Smith.
