Women's soccer wins first two

Women's soccer is out

to a quick, 2-0 start

The women's soccer team began its quest to defend the New England Women's Eight Conference title with two victories last week in its first two games. Elms College was the first victim, losing to the Engineers, 2-1, last Saturday. In that game, MIT took the lead in the first half when senior tri-captain Azza Idris finished off a cross from fellow tri-captain Vanessa Feliberti '91. Elms tied the game early in the second half, but Annette Lee '92 converted a rebound with six minutes left in the game to give the Engineers the win.

MIT went on to beat Pine Manor College, 2-0, in its home opener Wednesday.

Stu Schmill '86 was recently appointed director of the MIT crew program. Schmill was a coxswain for the heavyweight men's team for four years, and twice was voted Most Valuable Player. Among Schmill's new duties will be coaching the freshman team and coordinating events at the Pierce Boathouse.
