MIT placed first with 376 points overall (Northeastern finished in second place with 284 points — 92 behind MIT) at the tournament, which was attended by schools like West Point, Harvard, and the University of Michigan.
Ryan Wilson ’22 obliterated the NCAA Division III Records in the Indoor 1-Mile and the 800 meter events at the meets held at Boston University. On Feb. 10, Wilson ran a 3:55.29 at the David Hemery Valentine Invite, well below the vaunted four-minute barrier and more than a full second ahead of the previous record. Two weeks later, at the Last Chance Indoor National Qualifier, Wilson ran a 1:46.61, topping a record set exactly 11 years prior by Ben Scheetz of Amherst College.
MIT Wrestling finishes a historic season with one national champion and two additional All-American wrestlers
Pannell’s only loss of the tournament was to Lauren Stone, the champion and “outstanding wrestler” of the entire women’s division.

“Regardless of the score, the team had a consistent focus and a team vibe that was very unique.”
“We made a really good effort of spending time together outside of practice at MIT and even now, from all our corners of the world.”
Coach Anne Versprille: “This team defined the name of MIT Women's Lacrosse and set high standards and expectations for the future.”
“All the players and especially the seniors had a vision of hoisting that trophy. Given the circumstances, our returners know that now this next season will count for two,” Coach Tyler O’Keefe.
