CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - MIT swept the Lyons of Wheaton College, 30-16, 30-24, 30-14, to remain undefeated in NEWMAC play. With the win, the Engineers improve to 10-3 overall and 3-0 in the conference. Libero Arlis Reynolds was a dominate force from the service line, scoring seven aces without an error on 20 attempts. During a nine-point service run in the third game in which the Engineers opend up an 18-9 lead, Reynolds became MIT's all-time career leader in service aces, surpassing the mark of 264 set by Barb Schultze '02.

Reynolds' run was actually the second-longest streak of the night for the Engineers, as reigning NEWMAC Player of the Week Frances Rogoz rattled off 12 in a row in the first game to put Tech ahead, 24-9. Rogoz, who matched Caroline Jordan with four aces for the match was equally effective in the front row, scoring 11 kills on 20 attempts. Jordan and Briana Stephenson each added eight kills to MIT's attack. Reynolds anchored the backcourt with 13 digs while Lindsay Hunting contributed eight of her own.
