Stacey Dozono '97 has been named the New England Women's Eight Conference Player of the Year. Her honor marks the seventh time in the 10 years the NEW 8 all-conference volleyball teams have been selected that an MIT player has earned such a distinction.

Dozono led the Engineers to a third place finish in the league with a 52 league record. A three-time all-conference selection, Dozono led the NEW 8 in assists and had a hitting percentage of .446. Dozono will play on the all-conference team along with middle hitter Betsy Sailhamer '99.

The volleyball team qualified for the Eastern College Athletic Conference Division III North Championship. The team concluded the regular season with a 2011 record and was seeded eighth in the tournament, which was held last Friday and Saturday at Wellesley College.

The Engineers played number one seed Wellesley College in the first round and were defeated by a 31 score.
