Athletes of the Week
This week's athletes are Eric Chen '00 and Lila French '00. Chen recently beat the top ranked Division III tennis player in the country and qualified for the NCAA national tournament in singles and doubles, which will be be held next week. French became the first MIT woman to win a New England Division III outdoor track and field individual event, when she captured the pole vault in the recent championship meet. French vaulted 2.89 meters (9'5") to set a women's course record at Connecticut College.
