Eisenberg cross country winner

Junior Janis Eisenberg '98 was the individual winner in last weekend's Wellesley College Invitational. Eisenberg covered the 5,000 meter course in 19:33 to lead MIT to second place in the race behind the host school.

Strong showing for crew

The heavyweight crew had its best showing ever at the Head of the Ohio Regatta in Pittsburgh. MIT finished second in the Open Eight Division, behind Brown University and 0.2 seconds ahead of Cornell University.

The crew was also second in the 500 meter sprint, again behind Brown. Later in the competition, the squad was split into two fours and came in third and fourth in the Open Fours, once again behind Brown, which placed first and second.

The women's crew placed second to Villanova University in the Open Fours.
