The New England Patriots have seen off the Kansas City Chiefs, and the Denver Broncos have overcome the Pittsburgh Steelers, setting up the second AFC Championship match between the Patriots and the Broncos in three seasons. With a trip to Super Bowl 50 on the line it is hard to imagine any subplots overshadowing the ultimate prize, but the Manning-Brady rivalry is not just any rivalry. When the final chapters of their hall-of-fame careers have been played out, they will be remembered as two of the greatest ever to have played their positions.

Following back-to-back seasons of last-place finishes in the American League (AL) East, the Red Sox splashed the cash early in the offseason, signing free agent David Price to a record-breaking 7-year, $217 million deal. This deal makes the left-handed ace the highest paid pitcher in the history of major league baseball and the first pitcher with a ‘one million dollar per start’ price tag.

The women’s volleyball team has an enviable 26-2 record overall this season as it seeks a second straight New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) regular-season title and a chance to host the playoff tournament. A big reason for its dominance is star outside-hitter, Megan E. Gebhard ’17. Gebhard, who made the NEWMAC all-conference first team last year, leads the team in kills, averaging above 4 per set. The Tech’s player of the month for October told us about team spirit, this year’s goals, and beach volleyball at Google.

It was not that long ago that the MIT football team followed a 1-8 season (2010) with a 2-7 season (2011). Since then, the Engineers enjoyed their first winning season (5-4 in 2012) and followed it with a program-record 6-win season in 2013. The rest as we know is history. MIT finished 9-0 in the regular season en route to clinching the New England Football Conference (NEFC) and defeated Husson College to win its maiden NCAA playoff game. As the defending champions seek to extend their dominance, The Tech caught up with the mastermind who oversaw the emergence of the MIT football team as a NEFC powerhouse, head coach, Chad Martinovich. Coach Martinovich talked about challenges of recruitment, “life-scheduling”, and an incredible story of how perseverance prevailed in one of the most crucial moments of the season.

Carli Lloyd scored the fastest hat-trick in Women’s World Cup history to lead the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team (USWNT) to its third world cup triumph — its first since 1999. Lloyd’s hat-trick, the first one in a world cup final, took just sixteen minutes as the U.S. defeated Japan 5-2 and exacted revenge for their defeat at the world cup final four years ago.

From the football team scoring a last-minute field goal on the way to their first ever NCAA playoff victory, to the women’s lacrosse team erasing a five goal deficit in the last twelve minutes and clinching their maiden New England Women’s and Men’s Athletic Conference (NEWMAC) Championship, to breaking a pole vault record at the New England Division III Track and Field Championship, MIT student athletes scaled new heights (pun intended) in the 2014-15 year. While some usual suspects continued their domination — like the men’s tennis team winning their 17th consecutive NEWMAC title — there were a number of new frontiers reached this season. Here we take a look back at some of the ‘firsts’ for MIT sports.
