Center Valley, Pa. (May 19) -- MIT women's openweight rowing senior Larkin Sayre (Cambridge, England) has been named to the Academic All-Patriot League Team for her athletic and academic performance in 2016-17 for the Engineers.
Earlier this week, Sayre was named as a First Team All-League selection for the second straight season.
