Women skaters to defend title

By Meg O'Neill

The MIT women's hockey team is prepared to defend their title as National Collegiate Club champions this coming weekend. By winning the championship competition when it was first held last year, the Engineers earned the right to host this year's four-team tournament.

The Engineers bring a 4-9-3 record into the final weeks of the '90-'91 season, a mark that belies the abilities of a strong group of players.

Backed by the solid goalkeeping of Allie Bereny '90 and led

by top-scorer Deishin Lae G (8 goals, 3 assists), the Engineers feel confident heading into the tournament.

MIT will face Boston University, Colgate University and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. First-round competition will be held Saturday March 2, from 1 to 5 pm, and the consolation and championship matches will be played Sunday from 2 to 6 pm.
