Trevithick Named to All-American Team

By Roger Crosley
Director of Sports Information

The squash team returned from last weekend's National Intercollegiate Squash Racquets Association tournament with distinction. Matt Trevithick '93 was selected to the All-America team. Trevithick, who played in the number one position all year for the Engineers, is only the second All-American in the history of the MIT program. The team won the Barnaby Award as the most improved team in the country. The squad finished the season ranked 14th nationally, a leap of eight spots from 1992's ranking of 22nd.

Men's basketball

Basketball player Keith Whalen '96 has been named a first team Constitution Athletic Conference All-Conference selection. Whalen led the Engineers in both scoring and rebounding and was the only first year player on either the first or second conference team. Whalen also set the freshman record for points scored, tallying 389 points over the course of the season. His mark breaks the record of Mike McElroy '87 who totaled 330 points in 1983-84.

Indoor track

Pole vaulter Matt Robinson '94 and weight man John Wallberg '96 were the only two Engineers to score points in last weekend's All-New England Track Championships. Robinson placed second in his event with a vault of 15 feet, 7 inches. Wallberg finished sixth in the 35-pound weight throw with a toss of 51 feet. Matt Sandholm '96 set an MIT freshman record in the 55 meter dash with a clocking of 6.59 seconds but did not place in the meet.

Women's gymnastics

Gymnast Julie Lyren '93 finished third in the Eastern College Athletic Conference Division III Championship held last weekend at SUNY Brockport. Lyren totaled 35.25 in the all-around. Janet Sollod '96 finished in a tie for ninth with an all-around score of 33.45. The score is a personal best performance by Sollod.
