Knight Girls Compete at Pacific Coast Interscholastic Sailing Association Invitational in San Diego, CA

This past weekend, four girls from the Clear Falls High School sailing team traveled to sunny California to compete against twenty-one other girl’s teams from across the US. The sailing conditions were very challenging with strong current, significant wind shifts, and strong puffs that intensified in early afternoon each day. In the A Division, skipper Julia Sheaffer and crew Katie McGagh ended the two day event with a strong third place finish. Sailors Grace Bates and Jessica Willits finished ninth place. Their combined team scores resulted in an overall eighth place finish in the competition.  This is Julia’s final season as a senior at CFHS. “It was really cool to go back to the PCISA Women’s Invitational as a senior, especially because I did it my freshman year and it was the first high school sailing regatta I had ever competed in. I had a lot of fun, and I hope the girls on the CFHS sailing team continue to do the regatta.”
