3 Basketball Players Named to GTE Teams

By Roger Crosley
Sports Information Director

Three MIT basketball players have been named to the GTE College Sports Information Directors of America Academic All-District teams.

Kristin Ratliff '95 and Keith Whalen '96 were each named to the first teams, and Joe Levesque '95 was a second team selection. Ratliff and Whalen will now appear on the national ballot.

In Saturday's game against Western New England College Levesque became only the 15th player in MIT men's basketball history to score his 1,000th career point. Levesque also has been recently honored by the Auburn-Lewiston Sports Hall of Fame with that organization's President's Award in recognition of his basketball accomplishments at MIT.


Rifle coach Dick Dyer will be a guest speaker at the International Rifle Meetings in Singapore at the end of the month. Dyer has been the coach at MIT since 1990.


The squash team took two matches last week by a combined score of 171. The Engineers defeated Tufts University for the third consecutive season by an 8-1 count, then won a 9-0 decision at Connecticut College.
