The women's basketball team travelled to the Coca Cola Classic hosted by Catholic University of America in Washington DC last weekend. The Engineer's beat St. Elizabeth College in the consolation final, after losing their opening game to Catholic University.

In the Engineer's first game, they lost to host Catholic after a valiant battle. Catholic hit key free throws at the end of the game to pull ahead of MIT with a final score of 72-66.

In the consolation game against St. Elizabeth, the MIT team showed its strength with an 88-52 victory. Both C. J. Doane '95 and Kristin Ratliff '95 were named to the all tournament team. Doane scored 29 points in the Saint Elizabeth game, while pulling down nine rebounds.

Ratliff showed her strength with two consistent games, especially on the boards. She pulled down 18 against Catholic and 17 against St. Elizabeth. The team plays its next game tomorrow at Rockwell Cage against Brandeis University.
