Sailing To The Finals

MIT to Compete at ACC

By Roger Crosley

DIRECTOR OF SPORTS INFORMATION

Both the co-ed and women’s sailing teams from MIT have qualified for respective Atlantic Coast Championship Regattas. The ACC’s are the final contests of the fall intercollegiate seasons and feature the top seven teams from New England, the best seven from the Mid-Atlantic Region, and the first and second ranked teams from the Southern Atlantic Region.

MIT will host the co-ed event, while the women’s team will travel to Hobart and William Smith colleges in Geneva, NY, to compete.

The sailing teams captured the Horn Trophy last weekend, defeating 10 other New England squads. The regatta consists of 44 races in four divisions with a combined team of co-ed and women's sailing teams from each institution.

The New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference has announced its All-Conference teams for field hockey and women’s soccer. On the field hockey squad, MIT is represented by defensivewoman Theresa M. Power ’00. On the soccer squad, MIT players earned two spots. Hilary B. Carter ’00 and midfielder Rebecca E. Clinton ’03 were each named.

Two MIT football players have been named to the New England football Conference Weekly Honor Roll for their play in last weekend’s 34-9 victory over Western New England College. Defensive end Phil Colomy ’00 made his home finale a memorable one. The senior racked up a career high eleven tackles, with six solo stops. He also had two quarterback pressures and blocked a pass. On offense, quarterback David R. Skordal ’02 was named for the second consecutive week. He went 44 yards for a touchdown on MIT’s first play to give the Engineers a lead they would not surrender. Skordal added touchdown runs of one and nine yards later in the game and threw a 15-yard touchdown pass as well.

Swish, the New England college basketball quarterly, has named its pre-season “Dream Teams”, and MIT’s Zack J. Inman ’01 is featured on the Division III squad. Inman was a NEWMAC All-Conference selection as a sophomore when he averaged 18.1 points and 7.7 rebounds.
