The Grosse Ile High School varsity sailing team traveled to Traverse City Yacht Club in mid-October to compete in the Michigan State Sailing Championships.
The day started out with light air which built to 15-20 knots. The team did really well in the light air, jumping up to first place. Grosse Ile slipped to second place toward the end of the day when the wind picked up. Molly Matthews and Meghan Dieball placed third in the A Division. Ian Reimel, Michael Kalata, and Kyla Bugarin ended up second in the B Division, giving the team a second place finish at the Michigan State Championships.
“We congratulate the varsity sailing team for their success and for putting in the hard work it takes to succeed at such a high level. It was a great fall season for all Grosse Ile High School athletes, and we look forward to equally exciting winter and spring seasons,” said James Okler, athletic director for Grosse Ile Township Schools.
