Engineer teams score; soccer loses

By Nick Levitt

Yesterday in field hockey action, MIT destroyed Wellesley College by a score 5-0. Both the scheduled golf tournament and the women's soccer game were postponed due to bad weather.

Last Tuesday, the golf team continued its incredible winning streak, scoring 411 against Worcester State College (443) and Assumption College (450). Meanwhile, the men's soccer lost a close game to Babson College (1-0), the women's tennis team was outmatched by the Wellesley squad (6-3) and our women's volleyball team was downed by Mount Holyoke College (3-1).

The MIT women's soccer team, previously undefeated, were finally toppled by a very talented team from Smith College. They played solidly throughout the first half, keeping Smith to one goal and began the second half with much intensity, playing a thrilling game.

But eventually MIT's difficulty in clearing the ball from their zone led to their quick demise. Smith scored three goals in a space of six minutes, and the Engineers were shut out, 4-0.

MIT women's sailor Paula Lewin '93, from Bermuda, placed third in the New England Single-handed Championship held last Sunday on the Charles River.

The MIT men's tennis team, which sports a national ranking of 11th in the nation in Division III, also had a good weekend, knocking off the State University of New York at Binghamton 7-2. Binghamton was ranked 13th nationally at the time of the match. The victory runs the team's record to 2-1 in the fall with the lone loss to Division I Boston College.
