Top-10 Tech

The MIT men’s basketball team capped a record-breaking 29–2 season by reaching the Final Four of the Division III NCAA championships for the first time in Institute history. Ranked third going into the tournament, the team was one of eight from MIT to achieve top-10 status this year, including men’s and women’s indoor track and field, men’s and women’s swimming and diving, men’s and women’s cross-country, and men’s volleyball.

Here, Brooke Johnson ’13 and Elaine McVay ’15, NEWMAC Rookie of the Year, help the Institute win the NEWMAC cross-country championships, finishing second and third. Mitchell Kates ’13 and the Engineers blow past the College of Staten Island 83–67 in the third round of the NCAA tournament. And Brendan Deveney ’13, six-time All-American and NEWMAC Men’s Swimmer of the Year, swims to a first-place finish in the 200-yard butterfly at the NEWMAC championships.
