The Tech’s Athlete of the Week: Jacqueline M. Wentz ’10
Jacqueline M. Wentz ’10 led MIT’s Women’s Cross Country team to another first-place finish in their second meet of the season on Saturday. Wentz finished in 18:30 to finish fourth at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth Invitational, leading six of her teammates who finished in the top 30. MIT, ranked No. 23 nationally, took first place among 41 teams at the meet. This impressive finish came one week after Wentz led MIT to a nearly perfect finish in the Engineer’s Cup, finishing first in 19:21, leading MIT’s sweep of the first five finishes.
Wentz was recognized as the New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Runner of the Week after her performance in the Engineer’s Cup. MIT swept the conference honors that week, as men’s runner Hemagiri Arumugam ’10 was also named runner of the week.
