Football offensive guard Corey Foster '95 was named the winner of a National Collegiate Athletic Association Postgraduate Scholarship. Foster is one of only 29 scholar-athletes from all NCAA divisions in the country to win the $5,000 award.

In the six years MIT athletes have been eligible for the football scholarship, the Institute has had a winner in each of four years. Foster is a materials science major who will continue his graduate studies at MIT.

Soccer midfielder Dave Roberts '95 was named to the 1994 New England Region Adidas Scholar Athlete Soccer All-America second team.

Jesse Darley '95 was named the Constitution Athletic Conference Scholar-Athlete of the Year. Darley, who has placed ninth, third, first and second in his four appearances in the CAC Championships, is a two time NCAA Division III All-America as well as twice being named Academic All-America.

Darley is the second consecutive MIT runner to be named the CAC Scholar-Athlete for cross country.

Basketball players Keith Whalen '96 of the men's squad and C.J. Doane '95 of the women's team have each been named to the Eastern College Athletic Conference New England Division III Weekly Honor Roll for the week ending Jan. 14.
