The track team began its outdoor season by winning the Engineers' Cup in the annual meet with Worcester Polytechnic Insitute and Rennsaelaer Polytechnic Institute. Wallberg was a triple winner taking the hammer, the shot put, and the discus. Ethan Crain '95 also won three events taking the 800, the 1,500, and 5,000 meters. Andy Ugarov '95 captured both the long jump and triple jump.
