TEAM COACH

After having their 16 match winning streak broken last week against Springfield College, MIT bounced back and won five straight matches this past weekend to win the Eastern Connecticut State University Tournament for the second straight year.

The Engineers did not lose a single game as they rolled (3-0) over Lasell College, Plymouth State College, Endicott College, Babson College and hosts Eastern Connecticut State University to earn the championship trophy.

Middle hitter Lauren E. Frick ’03, had a strong weekend anchoring the offense with 33 kills, while Amy W. Mok ’02 served up a team high of 16 service aces for the tournament.

Co-captain Barbara J. Schultze ’02 earned All-Tournament Team honors, and setter Christina Almodovar ’02 was named the tournament's Most Valuable Player.

This was the fourth straight tournament that the Engineers have won this season, pushing their record to a staggering 23-2 for the season. MIT remains the number one in the New England region and number 20 in the Division III national ranking.
