Cross country runner Janis Eisenberg '98 achieved the rare feat of being both the Runner of the Year and the Rookie of the Year in the New England Women's Eight Conference Championship.

Marjorie Delo '95 was also named to the NEW-8 All-Conference squad. As a team, the Engineers finished second in the championship.


MIT football quarterback Alix Sgouros '95 set the Institute record for career touchdown passes with three scoring strikes in Saturday's 46-32 victory over the University of Massachusetts at Boston. Sgouros now has 20 touchdown passes, eclipsing the mark set by Tim Day from 1988-90.

Sgouros was named to the Eastern College Athletic Conference Division III New England Weekly Honor Roll for his play. For the day Sgouros completed 14 of 24 passes for 223 yards. His touchdowns were from 20, 4, and 58 yards. The three touchdown passes on one game also tied a school mark in that category.

His leading receiver, Trent Redman '98, (9 catches, 178 yards, 2 TDs) was also named to the Eastern Collegiate Football Conference Weekly Honor Roll for his play.
