Wilmette’s Maggie Shea hits the water for Team USA in Olympic sailing

Maggie Shea, of Wilmette, and Stephanie Roble, of East Troy, Wisconsin, are in 8th place following two days of racing in the 49er FX skiff class and remain in the mix for a medal. They capsized near the finish line of their final race Wednesday, costing them valuable points in the standings but not their good spirits.
