Rifle Team Defeats Mass Maritime

The MIT rifle team continued its best start since 1995 after traveling to Buzzards Bay last weekend and sweeping its fourth consecutive shoulder-to-shoulder match. Defeating Mass Maritime in both guns, the smallbore unit posted its highest score of the season to pace the win (2167).

Personal records abounded in the victory as new shooting highs were recorded by sophomore Jonathan S. Burnham ’08 in both guns; Jake G. Latcham ’09 in air; Wesley McKinney ’07 in smallbore; junior Nathan A. Pfaff ’07 in smallbore; and Anton Katz ’07 in both guns. Katz was the high shooter of the match, winning both events.

Women’s Tennis

For the second year in a row, Wellesley College defeated MIT in the NEWMAC Women’s Tennis Championship. Wellesley posted a 5-1 win over the Engineers for the team title one day after Tech advanced to the finals with a 5-1 victory over Babson College in the semifinals.

Last week, MIT finished 6th out of 22 teams at the New England Women’s Intercollegiate Tennis Tournament (NEWITT) with three individuals making it to at least the semifinals for the first time in school history. Senior Jill L. Konowich ’06 lost in the semifinals at No. 5 singles, while the No. 1 doubles team of Serena Y. Lin ’08 and Mariah N. Hoover ’08 became the first MIT tandem to ever advance to the finals of a NEWITT Championship. Hoover also advanced to the semifinals at No. 4 singles.

Women’s Volleyball

Arlis A. Reynolds ’06 set three MIT records en route to All-Tournament honors at the Women’s Volleyball Hall of Fame Tournament in Northampton, Mass. During the second game of a three-game sweep over Bates, Reynolds broke the school mark for digs in a season (Barbara J.S. Schultze ’02). In a loss against Springfield, Reynolds collected 34 digs for her fifth 30-plus dig performance of the season. In addition, she broke the career record for digs (1,804) which was also set by Schultze. Reynolds also reset the mark for digs in a four-game match after establishing the previous record of 31 on Sept. 23 against Williams College. Reynolds has been named to the All-Tournament team three times this season.
