Academic All-Americans Named in Cross-Country

By Roger Crosley
Sports Information Director

The NCAA Division III Cross Country Coaches Association has named its men's and women's Academic All-Americas and Academic All-America Teams, and MIT athletes and teams are prominent on the lists. The MIT women's team is ranked second in the country with an adjusted overall grade point average of 3.706 on a 4.0 scale, while the men's team is third nationally with an adjusted 3.582. From the women's team four juniors received individual honors: Bridget Banas, Marjorie Delo, Kristen Persons, and Agnieszka Reiss. The three men who received the honor were Jesse Darley '95, Jerry Pratt '94, and Arnold Seto '96.

Women's Crew

New England Women's 8 Conference honors have been bestowed upon the MIT women's crew program with three athletes named to the 1994 All-Conference team and the coach winning a third consecutive Coach of the Year Award. Andrea Jensen '95, and Bethany Foch G were selected as rowers, while Shruti Sehra '96 was named the All-Conference coxswain. Coach Mayrene Earle was selected by her peers as Coach of the Year in the Conference.

Baseball

Baseball player Rob Lepard '95 had a big day in Saturday's

doubleheader sweep of visiting Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Lepard tossed a 120 shutout in the second game to give the Engineers the sweep, and his batting helped his own cause.

Lepard went 2 for 4, with two runs batted in the first game, and was 2 for 3 in the nightcap. His two hits in the second game were a double and a triple. He also scored two runs and batted in two others. Lepard raised his season batting average 48 points.
