The squash team finished its season 16th in the country after the national competition at Yale University Sunday. In addition, star player Irfan Chaudhary G was named All-American in recognition of his outstanding performance during the regular season.

Irfan had an excellent season, winning all of his matches except against Yale and Amherst. He was slated for All-American because of his wins over Williams, Dartmouth, and Brown. But the title was virtually guaranteed after his crushing 3-0 victory over Harvard, which had been number one in the country.

This season will be the last for many of the players who will either be graduating or will have completed their eligibility on the team. The players include Safroadu Yeboah-Amankwah G, Ifran Chaudhary G, Amit Desai '94, Daniel Friedman '94, Adeeb Shanaa G, and John de Souza G.


Swimmer Ted Achtem '93 had a tremendous weekend at the New England Division III Championships at Bowdoin College. Achtem placed second in the 200 backstroke and the 400 individual medley, and third in the 100 individual medley. Achtem was also a member of two relay teams which qualified for the finals in the 400 and 800 freestyle events.


Chris Chong '93 was named to the All-Tournament volleyball team at the 1994 Roger Williams University Invitational Tournament. Chong, a middle hitter, led the Engineers to the semi-finals of the tournament where they dropped a four set match to SUNY New Paltz.
