Football Seniors Earn All-American Honors

By Roger Crosley

DIRECTOR OF SPORTS INFORMATION

Two MIT football players have been named to the GTE Academic All-America College Division First Team as selected by the College Sports information Directors of America. Nikolas Kozy ’00 and Angus Huang ’00 were each accorded the honor. Kozy is a defensive end and was a second team selection in 1998. Defensive back Huang has been named to the team for the first time.

The New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference has named forward Rahn Huffstutler ’01 the conference men’s basketball Player of the Week. In the first two starts of his career, Huffstutler averaged 23 points and 9.5 rebounds as MIT had wins over Gordon College and Polytechnic University. He shot .545 (18/33) from the floor and an eye-popping .556 (16/29) from behind the three-point arc during the week.

Volleyball player Alarice C. Huang ’00 has been named to the GTE CoSIDA College Division Academic All-District squad. Huang will now appear on the national volleyball ballot. Huang is the first MIT volleyball player since 1991 to earn selection to the team.

Two members of the 1999 MIT women’s pistol team have been invited to participate in the USA Shooting 2000 Olympic Selection Match to be held at Fort Benning, GA, from April 19 to May 5. Tracy Ho ’99 and Hattie Gruneisen ’00 were each selected to participate based on their performances at last year’s Intercollegiate pistol championships. Ho has been shooting with the Malaysian National Team while living in Singapore since her graduation. Gruneisen is still competing for the Engineers.
