Behind five event wins, the MIT men’s track and field team captured the NCAA New England Division III Indoor Championship for the 10th time in program history, the first since 2003. Stephen A. Morton ’10 had an outstanding overall day, taking home three individual event titles while setting a pair of Institute records, to help the Engineers dethrone defending New England Champion, Williams College. Tech earned 132.5 points to outlast the Ephs, who finished with 109. Gregory D. Tao ’10 and the distance medley relay team were also crowned New England champs.
Competing without a pair of All-Americans, the No. 3 ranked MIT women’s track and field team was still able to take second place at the NCAA New England Division III Championship, hosted by Southern Maine over the weekend. Portia M. Jones ’12, Jamie L. Simmons ’12 and Hazel L. Briner ’11 captured individual New England titles, as Tech’s 90 team points were good for second behind Williams College, which finished with 156 points.
