additional sports

Women’s cross-country

The women’s cross-country team finished fourth in the NEWMAC championships last fall.

Although the team will have to deal with the loss of standout and captain Deborah S. Won ’00, the return of Marissa Yates ’03, who consistently placed second for Tech last fall when not injured, will help the team continue its success.

Field hockey

After going 1-8 in NEWMAC last season and losing six of the twenty players from last season to graduation, the field hockey team will need an infusion of powerful freshmen and strong performances by the returning starters to achieve a winning season.

Sailing

Early this summer, the co-ed sailing team made it to the national championship regatta for the first time since 1984, finishing twelfth out of eighteen.

Last fall, both the co-ed and women’s sailing teams qualified for the Atlantic Coast Championship Regatta. However, this fall the team will be without the four All-Americans who graduated in June.
