CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - The Mid-Atlantic Conference (MAC) announced its inaugural All-Academic Team on Wednesday and the MIT rifle squad received three selections. Junior Emily Houston added the Academic accolades after being named to the All-Conference Team last month. She was joined on the All-Academic Team by Joseph Lane and Jennifer Paek.
Houston was consistently MIT’s top shooter throughout the season. She was named the MAC Air Rifle Shooter of the Month in January and was a Second Team All-Conference pick in both smallbore and air rifle. Lane and Paek helped the Engineers finish second in the Expert Division of the smallbore competition at the MAC Championship. Both Lane and Paek finished in the top 20 at the Championship.
This marked the first time the MAC has named an All-Academic Team. The squad was made up of 20 student-athletes from the conference's 15 member institutions.
