By Roger Crosley
Sports Information Director

MIT sailor Danielle Ames '97 qualified for the National Singlehanded Championship with a third place finish in the New England Championships held this past weekend on the Charles River. Ames will join 15 other qualifiers from throughout the country for the nationals which will be hosted by MIT October 20-22.

Ames took second in her group in the qualifying round, while Elaine Heal '95 placed third in her group. Heal placed 15th in Sunday's finals, which were characterized by strong winds which seriously challenged the sailors' skills and endurance.

Women's Volleyball

Volleyball players Pareen Dallah '95 and Kamilah Alexander '96 were two of the six All-Tournament team members at the Bates College Invitational.

MIT finished second in the 12-team tournament dropping the final to Williams College by a 12 score.
