ST. MARY’S CITY, Md. – St. Mary’s College of Maryland sailing member Leo Boucher has been named the November Student-Athlete of the Month, the SMCM athletic department announced today (Dec. 4).
The Department of Athletics & Recreation executive team selects the Student-Athlete of the Month awardee each month.
Boucher represented St. Mary’s College of Maryland at the LaserPerformance Men’s Singlehanded Nationals hosted by UC Santa Barbara on Nov. 9-10. The sophomore from West River, Maryland returned to campus as a National Champion by taking first place in the regatta.
Boucher sat in third place of the 18 sailors after the first day which consisted of ten races. On Sunday (Nov. 10) the fleet completed four races which solidified Boucher’s title. Placing in the top five in nine of the races helped Boucher’s score a great deal. He finished the regatta with 65 points, just three points in front of the second-place winner, Richard McCann from the University of Miami.
The Seahawk sailing team will be back in action on Jan. 4 when they compete at the Rose Bowl hosted by the University of Southern California.

The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.
To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
