Walpole was runner-up in the singles competition, dropping a straight set decision to a competitor from Wesleyan University. Walpole teamed with fellow junior Jay Muelhoefer from Brussels, Belgium, to win the doubles title. Muelhoefer and Walpole will now travel to Corpus Christi, TX, to compete in the Division III national championships later this month.

Women's tennis

The women's varsity tennis team has compiled a 7-0 record to begin the 1992 season. That is the best season opening record in the 18-year history of the program.

Golf

Golfer Doug Yuem '96 had a big week last week. Yeum, of Great Neck, NY, shot an 81 in the Constitution Athletic Conference Tournament at the Wellesley Country Club. Yeum was named to the All-Conference Team, and led the Engineers to a 2nd place finish in the tourney. Later in the week, Yeum's score in the ECAC New England Regional Tournament in Middlebury, VT, qualified him for the ECAC Championship Tournament, to be played at the Colgate University course in Hamilton, NY.

Safety Calvin Newman '96 became the second Beaver player in as many weeks to be honored by the Eastern Collegiate Football Conference (ECFC) and the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC). Newman, who hails from Los Angeles, CA, had 17 tackles, including 10 solo stops in MIT's 43-14 loss to Bentley College. Newman was named the ECFC Defensive Player of the Week and was named to the ECAC New England Division III Weekly Honor Roll.
