Class of 2005: 

Cathy and I are honored and 
delighted to have joined the WPI 
community in time for your senior year. 
We trust that the year has been as 
exciting and rewarding for you as it has 
been for us. 

WPI has many fine qualities, but 
none better than its students. In your 
final academic year, I have had the good 
fortune to meet many of you around 
campus, at your events and meetings, and 
over dinner at One Drury Lane. I have 
been deeply impressed by your honesty 
and openness, your commitment to 
building a strong sense of community, 
the breadth and depth of your academic 
chievements, and the pride you have 
the University. WPI is an example of 
“learning community” can be, 
large part to your own 

e world. Foremost among 
about the potential, both 
am confident that WPI has 
ng leadership, and depth of 


that your appreciation for the gifts 
ter—will result in an ever-deepening 
varding, continuing association for you with your 
cesses and to enjoying your continuing participation 

each of you. 

Yours sincerely, 


Jocelyn Lally, Class of 2005 

After walking over the seal 
receiving our diplomas, we leave a different 
Tech than four years ago as changed I 
individuals, but our spirit is the same. We are 
more educated and have become part of the 
legacy which was laid out by so many that have 
come before us, overcoming awesome 
obstacles to reach where we are today. We were 
challenged to integrate theory and practice, and 
slowly, through the completion of each degree 
requirement, we have succeeded. The 
accomplishment is not small and should be 
taken into the world with the greatest of 
satisfaction and dignity. 

Seventy-seven years ago the WPI 
Yearbook changed its name from The 
Aftermath to The Peddler because it had more 
meaning to Tech men, paying homage to 
Boynton’s original occupation as a tin peddler. 
Each year, The Peddler attempts to chronicle 
our journey, providing a snapshot of the 
University to be remembered for all time, and 
to provide each graduate with a little piece of 
WPI to remember when their children ask 
about their college days. It is hard work and 
we miss a lot, but hopefully the memories 
you’ve made are ones you’ll never forget. The 
following pages are the chronicle of your 
journey; the Peddler staff hopes you enjoy 
remembering as much as we did. 

To understand the legacy that you are 
now a part of is to realize that your success has 
le possible by countless men and 
>efore you. It is their hard work and 
thankless efforts that have brought us here 
today. And it is our duty to ensure the same 
for the future. 

“Today the Institute stands solidly atop its 
rounded hill, still overlooking the City and 
reaching toward the sky. It stands there for 
more than any other reason because—by some 
strange and wonderful supply—there have 
always been enough people who cared.” 

Mildred Me Clary Ty meson 
Two Towers, 1965

BREAKING NEWS - Mass, soldier 
killed in Iraq 

By The Patriot Ledger 

A soldier from Westminster, Mass., has died in Iraq, the 
Department of Defense announced today. 

1st Lt. Ryan P. Jones, 23, died Tuesday in Baghdad of 
wounds suffered when his vehicle struck a roadside bomb. 

Jones was a public information officer assigned to Fort 
Huachuca in Arizona. 

Spc. Astor A. Sunsin-Pineda, 20, of Long Beach, Calif., was 
also killed in the explosion. 

Jones and Sunsin-Pineda were assigned to the 4th Brigade 
Special Troops Battalion, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 1st 
Infantry Division, Fort Riley, Kan. 

Westminster Fire Chief Brenton MacAloney said Jones 
grew up in town and graduated at or near the top of his 
class at Montachusset Regional Vocational Technical 
School in Fitchburg. He received a degree from Worcester 
Polytechnic Institute. 

Jones was the only child of Elaine and Kevin Jones of 
Westminster, a town of 6,000 about 6 miles west of

"He was a personable, nice kid," MacAloney said. 

‘‘He had a lot going for him. One of my firefighters grew up 
with him, and he said Ryan was one of the smartest kids he 
ever met." 

Jones is the 53rd soldier from Massachusetts killed in Iraq. 
The U.S. death toll in the war is now 3,357.

Senior Class Gift 

T he Senior Class Gift Program offers a unique 
opportunity for WPI’s newest alumni to begin 
giving back to the University. The Class of 2005 
proudly raised funds for an updated aerial photo of campus. 
Since the last photo in the early 1990s, the Campus Center 
has been built and there will soon be a new building for 
Admissions and the Financial Aid Office. A new photo 
will provide visitors and members of the WPI community 
the opportunity to view campus from above and see the 
ever changing landscape of WPI. 

In addition to the aerial photo, a variety of other designation 
options were available. Each of these could be used to meet 
the University’s pressing needs and support future WPI 

The goals of the Senior Class were to raise at least $5,000 
with 50% participation. At closing, the class had raised 
$7,175.41 with 31.87% participation. This dollar amount 
breaks records set by all previous classes of record. 

Gifts from the Class of2005 were matched by WPI Trustee 
Windle Priem (‘59). On May 16th, 2005, all Senior Gift 
donors were invited to the check presentation and 
celebration at President Berkey’s house.

Men’s and Women’s Crew 

T he WPI crew season always seems to produce highs 
with few lows, and this year was no different. The 
year began with the tragic loss of longtime crew 
advocate Bernie Brown, who passed away in July 2004 due 
to illness. Brown was WPI’s Vice President of Student 
Affairs and a fixture at nearly all WPI crew events. To honor 
his memory, the cup given to the winning women s varsity 
8 at the New England’s has been renamed the Bernard H. 
Brown Cup. This year, that Cup went to Trinity College. 
As for WPI, the men had a most interesting year under head 
coach Larry Noble. In the fall, the varsity 8 finished 27 th of 
45 at the prestigious Head of the Charles Regatta in 
Cambridge. After a successful early March trip to Florida 
(for both the men and women), both teams returned to icy 
conditions on Lake Quinsigamond. What is normally an 
advantage for WPI (practicing on its home course where it 
races during the season) became a disadvantage as other 
squads in New England were able to practice on smaller 
venues where the ice had already broken. By mid-April, 
Noble decided boldly to make some changes, creating a “four 
with coxswain” in which he was going to place all his marbles. 
The men’s varsity 4 with coxswain made its debut at the 
New England’s on May 1, and lo and behold, with no official 
competition under its belt, it won - thus becoming New 
England champions. It was certainly one of the top WPI 

sports moments of the entire academic year. The boat wa 
comprised of seniors Ian Buzanoski and Bryan Pursell, anc 
juniors Jon Rogers and Dan Vitale, as well as junio 
coxswain Leigh Duren. Also at the New England’s, the 2" 
novice placed 3 rd , and the lightweight 8’s finished 5 th . At th< 
ECAC’s one week later, the varsity four was seeded #1, bu 
never raced due to inclement weather. Later, the lightweigh 
8’s placed 3 rd . On the women’s side, the year also had its up 
and downs - mostly ups. The women had created loft 
expectations with their #2 Division III national ranking fron 
the year before. This year, head coach Jason Steele’s squa< 
was ranked in the top 15 all season, and finished in the to] 
10. In the fall, WPI placed 16 th of 50 at the Head of the Charb 
In the spring, the varsity 8 placed 3 rd of 6 at the NEWMAC 
(hosted by WPI). At the New England’s, the varsity : 
finished 9 th overall, or 3 rd in the petite finals. At the ECAC5 
with a national berth still conceivably on the line, the varsit 
8 placed in the top 12, reaching the semis; however, th 
national bid did not come. Seniors Erin Bryan and Emil 
Pikor were named All-NEWMAC (varsity), while freshma: 
Chelsea Bierkan was named All-NEWMAC (novice' 
Named to the NEWMAC All-Academic team were Pike 
and sophomores Bethany Corliss, Corinne Linderman, an 
Kendra Gill. 


mm m 




T here were many thrills and spills during the football 
season. As a team, WPI finished 5-5 overall, and 2- 
5 in its first season in the newly-named Liberty 
League. For the first time, WPI was in a conference which 
included Coast Guard, Hobart, Kings Point, Rensselaer, 
Rochester, St. Lawrence, and Union. The year began with 
the team on fire, defeating Endicott at home (47-2), 
Worcester State on the road (40-7), and Husson at home 
(35-0). WPI had outscored its first three opponents, 122-9. 
Following that, WPI opened its conference portion of the 
season, losing at Kings Point (24-14), at eventual league- 
champion Hobart (55-38), and at home to Union (31-21). 
After a two-week layoff, WPI came back to easily defeat 
Rochester at home (34-10). What followed was an amazing 
game at Rensselaer. Trailing 35-6 midway through the third 
quarter, WPI came nearly all the way back before succumbing 
35-33. WPI had the ball on its own 41 when the game ended. 
Up next, in a real see-saw affair, WPI defeated Coast Guard 
at home (35-28). And in a disappointing finale, WPI lost to 
St. Lawrence at home (31-14). A catalyst on and off the field 
was senior DB Miguel Concepcion who was well-honored 
following the season. He was named an NCAA Post- 
Graduate Scholarship Finalist. Not surprisingly, he was 
named the Melvin G. Massucco Award winner (top male 
senior) at WPI’s annual awards banquet at year’s end. He 
was named “ESPN The Magazine” Academic All-American 
in District I, as was junior DB Bryan Douglass. Miguel was 
also named First Team All-EC AC, First Team All-New 
England, First Team All-Liberty League, both as a defensive 
back and as a return specialist. He was also named Liberty 
League Special Teams Player of the Year and Worcester Area 
Football Coaches Association Co-Defensive Player of the 
Year. Additionally, sophomore center Nate Delap and senior 

OLB Ryan Rackliffe were named Second Team All-Libert 
League. Named All-Liberty League honorable mention wt 
senior wide receiver Preston Roberts and senior defensiv 
end Chase Cote. Named Worcester Area Football CoacL 
Association First Team were Concepcion, both as a DB an 
as a kick-off returner, senior tight end Matt Guigli, senic 
offensive guard Mark Russo, Delap, Roberts, Rackliffe, an 
Cote. Named Second Team were junior Brian Farraghe 
both as a fullback and as a punt returner, sophomor 
running back Billy Orfalea, senior DT Tim Gagnon, an 
Douglass. Named Liberty League All-Academic wer 
Concepcion, Douglass, and Russo, along with seniors Gab 
Pereira, Dave Seermon, Kyle Shepherd, Ryan Walker, an 
Gilead Ziemba, juniors Jason Gamache, Jeremy Griffin,Jo 
Hernandez, Chris Lynch, Matt Regan, and Virg: 
Vaillancourt, and sophomorejosh Rodden. Named Libert 
League Players of the Week were Orfalea (offensive) on Sep ; 
6, Rackliffe (defensive) on Sept. 20, and freshman Dusti 
Bradway (rookie) on Sept. 20. Orfalea led WPI in rushin 
with 551 yards and 11 TDs, followed by Farragher with 4(K 
and Roberts with 333. The top receiver was Roberts wit 
40 catches for 771 yards. He had 4 TDs receiving. Sophomor 
Matt Burger caught 23 balls for 360 yards and 1 TD. I 
passing, senior QB Ryan Jennette completed 116 passes i: 
270 attempts for 1710 yards with 9 TDs and 13 interception! 
Defensively, Rackliffe was the leading tackier with 8£ 
followed by Douglass with 69, Lynch with 65, Ziemba wit! 
57, Concepcion with 55, Gagnon with 47, and Cote wit!

right. Although the team finished 7 th in the 7-team 
NEWMAC conference, the catch-phrase at the end of the 
season among league foes was You don t want to play 
WPI now.” WPI opened the season with a 2-1 victory at 
Worcester State. Later, WPI defeated a good Gordon team, 
2-0, and added a win over Anna Maria, 5-0. But ofWPI’s 
12 defeats, a rather large total of 9 were by one goal. Among 
those 1-goal losses were losses to Wheaton (1-0), 
Springfield (2-1), league-champion MIT (2-1), and 
Westfield State (1-0). On a number of occasions, WPI out- 
shot its opponent, even in defeat. At season’s end in the 
NEWMAC Tourney, WPI traveled to play Wheaton. It 
took an overtime session to do it, but Wheaton pulled 
through, winning 2-1. It was said to be WPI s finest game 
of the year. This was only the second losing season in 22 
years for Malcolm MacPherson as a collegiate head coach 
(13 at WPI). It was a little tough to comprehend that WPI 
men’s soccer teams had finished a combined 38-16-1, 
enjoying much success, over the previous three years. Junior 
midfielder Matt Young and senior forward and co-captain 
Jimmy Norton led WPI in goals with 4 each. Young led 
the squad in scoring with 11 points, while Norton was next 
with 9. Low-scoring games were the norm, as WPI tallied 
just 17 goals on the year, while giving up only 26. Junior 
Matt Cichon was the team’s main goalkeeper. WPI will 
miss several seniors next season, including co-captains 
Jimmy Norton and back Andrew Purtell. Norton was 
Second Team All-NEWMAC. WPI will be led next season 
by Matt Young, a First Team All-NEWMAC performer. 
Named NEWMAC All-Academic this past fall were 
sophomore Nick Barraford, senior Aaron Grinstein, 
sophomore Sean O’Keefe, senior Justin Rockwell, and 
junior Kevin Toomey. 



Women’s Soccer 

T he WPI women’s soccer team (10-8-2 overall; 5-3 
NEWMAC; 0-1 NEWMAC Tourney; 0-1 
EC AC New England Div. Ill Tourney) had a good 
year — its second straight winning season. The team finished 
10-8-2 overall, but more importantly, finished second 
behind only powerful Wheaton in the NEWMAC 
conference, and went on to compete in the EC AC New 
England Division III post-season tourney. Stephanie 
Carlson’s troops began the year 6-2-1, including wins over 
Salve Regina (3-0), RPI (1-0), Worcester State (2-1), 
Fitchburg State (3-0), Anna Maria (5-0), and an especially 
good win over Wellesley (1-0). WPI later added wins over 
Coast Guard (2-0), Mount Holyoke (2-0), Babson (2-0), 
and Clark (1-0). At season’s end, #2-seeded WPI was upset 
in the first round of the NEWMAC Tourney, falling to 
#7-seeded Clark at home (1 -0). But a year’s worth of good 
results allowed WPI a spot in the ECAC Tourney as the 
#7-seed. The team went to play at #2-seeded Brandeis and 
led 1-0 at the half. Later in the game, WPI trailed 2-1, but 
came back to tie it late. Then with only 3 minutes to go in 
the 2 nd overtime, Brandeis capitalized on a 2-on-l break to 
escape with the victory. WPI was led by a trio of captains, 
including senior back Megan Holmes, senior back Julie 

Bradley, and junior midfielder Mary Desrosiers. Holm< 
who holds the all-time WPI career assists record, was nam 
Second Team All-NEWMAC and Second Team All-Nt 
England (the latter for the second year in a row). While s' 
certainly received several plaudits — including winning t 
Varsity Club Award as WPI’s top female senior athlete at yea 
end — the top honoree on this squad was junior goalkeep 
Manda Otterman. Manda was the only goalkeeper to recei 
First Team All-NEWMAC honors. She also was nam< 
NSCAA/Adidas New England All-Regional Thirci Teai 
In addition, she received WPI’s Poly Club Award (top juni 
female based on GPA and community service) and was nana 
NEWMAC Player of the Week (Oct. 17). Earlier, sophomo 
back Kelly Thompson was named NEWMAC Player of t! 
Week (Oct. 3). Named NEWMAC All-Academic we 
Holmes, Otterman, juniors AJ Bourgault, Teri Hannon, ai 
All Hart, and sophomore Ashley Maiorano. It was Maiorai 
who led the team in scoring with 15 points. The top gc 
scorers with 5 each were Maiorano, Thompson, ar 
Desrosiers. Holmes led in assists with 6. Otterman had 
sparkling 0.87 goals against average and posted 10 shutout 






T he WPI volleyball team (4-18 overall; 0-9 
NEWMAC) had a tough year in that it won just 
four matches in 22 tries. The team often had an 
uncanny ability to play to the level of its competition, with a 
tendency to play better against tougher competition. But that 
still translated into defeats. Wins came over Simmons (3-0) 
and Bay Path (3-1) in September, and Anna Maria (3-1), and 
MCLA (3-1) in October. The year ended with a 3-0 defeat at 
Smith. The team did not reach the NEWMAC Tourney. On 
the bright side, senior Lee Heiberg finished with a good .298 
hitting percentage, while junior Heather Burkart had an 
excellent season total of306 digs. Sophomore Yaralia Castillo 
had 58 service aces, an area WPI almost always does well in. 

Heiberg followed with 45, and promising freshman K 
Woodman had 35. Junior Amanda Jamin did a fine jol 
setter with her 417 set assists. Sophomore Jennifer Par 
and junior Jeanne Shaffer were named NEWMAC l 
Academic. In a milestone, Nancy Vaskas completed 
25 th year as WPI’s head coach. 



fter all is said and done, the 2004-05 wrestling season 
(6-11-1 overall; 5-8 NECCWA) will best be 
remembered as an end to an era - a glorious era in 
7PI wrestling history. The season marked the end of a 33- 
ear run in which the very popular and well-respected Phil 
irebinar served as WPI’s head coach. He finished with 414 
ictories, one of the top figures in that noted category in 
JCAA Division III history. “Greb” stepped down not long 
fter the season ended, although he will remain with the 
;hletic department as an administrator and its lone tenured 
rofessor. The WPI wrestling program will still be in good 
ands. Grebinar will be replaced by one of WPI’s all-time 
est wrestlers in Sean Nelligan ‘02. Nelligan still holds the 
/PI record for most dual victories in a season — 20 in 1999- 
000. The 2004-05 season itself was a bit disappointing in 
lat WPI finished 6-11-1 overall despite a 5-match winning 
reak in the middle of the season and a 21-9 win at arch- 
val Coast Guard toward season’s end. In the NECCWA 
ourney, WPI finished 8 th of 15, right where it was seeded. 
/PI was led all year by four wrestlers who were accorded 
11-New England status by finishing in the top six of their 
‘spective weight classes at the NECCWA Tourney held at 
)hnson & Wales in Providence, RI. At 165 pounds, senior 
>e Moskowitz capped a tremendous career by placing third, 
loskowitz had wrestled at 157 pounds his first three seasons. 

Senior Pete Krzyzewski also placed third at 184 pounds. 
Another 3 rd place finish was provided by junior Tom 
Lashmit at heavyweight. And finally, sophomore Roman 
Walsh captured 6 th place at 141. Krzyzewski, Moskowitz, 
and senior Rob Saltzman were the tri-captains. Saltzman 
is expected to return following a missed season due to 


Men’s Basketball 

T here were many reasons to think that this past season 
was the greatest in WPI basketball history (24-4 
overall; 10-2 NEWMAC; 2-0 NEWMAC Tourney 
as #1 seed; 1-1 NCAA Tourney). Certainly, there are a 
couple of teams that might debate it - the 1919-20 team that 
finished 14-2, the 1942-43 team that was declared New 
England Champions, and the 1984-85 team that reached 
the Final 8 of the NCAA Tournament. But THIS team 
finished 24-4, recording the most victories by four in the 
history of the school. This team went to the NCAA 
Tourney and reached the Round of 16. This team started 
the season with 9 straight wins, the fastest start in WPI 
history. And after a loss, this team recorded 11 more wins, 
the second longest winning streak in WPI history. Imagine 
in one year having the second-longest (11) and fourth- 
longest (9) winning streaks in WPI annals. It was news when 
WPI lost — the only losses in the regular season came against 
DeSales in the finals of the Old Westbury Classic in late 
December, and at Coast Guard and at Springfield in mid- 
February. WPI entered the NEWMAC Tourney as the host 
team and the #l-seed with a 21-3 overall mark. What 
followed were tense and taut victories over Clark (73-64) 
and Wheaton (64-60), propelling WPI into the NCAA 
Tournament for the first time in 20 years. A four-point play 
by junior guard Ryan Flynn with exactly one minute to go 
gave WPI the final impetus for the big win over Wheaton. 
WPI then received a first-round bye, meaning it 
automatically found itself in the NCAA Tourney’s Round 
of 32. WPI hosted and defeated Western Connecticut State 
in another great game, 79-77. That game was not determined 
until the buzzer sounded. Sophomore guard and 
NEWMAC Player of the Year Ryan Cain hit two free throws 
with 8.9 seconds to go to break a 77-all tie. WPI continued 
to Mahwah, NJ, where Ramapo College served as host of 
one of four sectionals. In the sectional semis, WPI found 
itself pitted against a taller and very talented team from York 
(PA), falling to defeat 99-80. York went on to the Final Four, 
losing to eventual NCAA Division III national champion 
Wisconsin-Stevens Point in the semis. WPI now has a 44- 
12 record over the past two years, during which Head Coach 
Chris Bartley has been named NEWMAC Coach of the 
Year twice. Cain led WPI this past season with a 19.5 ppg 
average. He was followed by junior guard Mike Prestileo 
(13.1), a Second Team All-NEWMAC performer, then 
sophomore center Scott Misiaszek (9.4), junior guard Brian 
Steele (8.4), freshman forward Antoine Coleman (7.1) (WPI’s 
top male freshman), Flynn (6.7), freshman forward James 
Marois (5.4), andjunior guard Brett Dickson (3.5). Misiaszek 
averaged 6.8 rebounds to lead the team in that category, 

followed by Coleman’s 5.8. Misiaszek also averaged cl 
blocks, third-best in the nation and best in the NEWMA 1 . 
He had one game where he blocked 11 shots at Wheaton i 
WPI record and tied for the nation’s best in a single gan . 
Cain had a contest at Worcester State (an 89-85 win), duric 
which WPI won the Worcester County Classic for tj: 
second straight year, where he had a nation’s single-gaij: 
best 20-of-20 free throws. Cain had another game (t 
Springfield) where he went 14-for-14 from the line. Cai 
was named First Team All-NEWMAC, First Team All-No 
England, Second Team All-Regional, and Second Team A - 
EC AC. He was also a NEWMAC Player of the Week thf' 
times (Jan. 2, Jan. 16, Feb. 27). Prestileo was a NEWMA! 
Player of the Week (Nov. 28), as was Steele (Jan. 9). Dickso 
was named NEWMAC All-Academic. WPI’s NEWMA' 
regular season title was its second; its NEWMAC Tourm 
title its first. WPI will lose only one player — senior Job 
Costello — next season. Otherwise, and here is the real sea/ 
part, everyone returns. 



Women’s Basketball 

T he WPI women’s basketball team (10-15 overall; 
5-8 NEWMAC; 0-1 NEWMAC Tourney) 
finished with an overall record of 10-15, and a 
NEWMAC record of 5-8. Cherise Galasso’s team had its 
ups and downs, hovering around the .500 mark for the 
bulk of the season. WPI recorded wins over Gordon (55- 
49 in the consolation game of the City Tip-Olf Tourney, 
which WPI hosted), Lasell (86-50), Framingham State (66- 
28), Emerson (53-34), Regis (64-49),. Clark (69-58), 
Wheaton (69-62), MIT (56-42), Smith (72-40), and MIT 
(56-36). The year ended, however, with three consecutive 
defeats, including a 64-49 loss at #1 -seeded Mount Holyoke 
in a NEWMAC first round tourney game. As far as awards 
are concerned, senior center Lee Heiberg was named 
Second Team All-NEWMAC. She was also named the 
NEWMAC Player of the Week for January 9. Heiberg led 
WPI in scoring with her 14.1 ppg average. She was followed 
by sophomore forward Meghan Pajonas at 7.5, junior 
guard Sarah Doyon at 6.6, freshman point guard Emily 
Allietta at 6.5, freshman guard Kate Maki at 5.1, junior guard 
Ashley Zalucky at 4.3, junior forward Tiffany Madsen at 
4.2, and junior forward Taryn Mroczkowski at 3.8. In 
rebounding, Heiberg also led with a 7.2 average per game. 
Pajonas was not far behind with a 6.9 average, and Doyon 
had a 4.2. Madsen led in field goal percentage at .529. 
Doyon led in assists with 74. As far as career stats are 
concerned, Heiberg finished with 1,272 points (8 th best in 
WPI history), 719 rebounds, and 150 blocks (2 nd best in 
WPI history). WPI had a total of three junior captains this 
past season, including Doyon, Mroczkowski, and forward 
Kate Herchenroder. 


pi T 



T here were several highlights to the WPI Swimming 
& Diving season (Men: 8-3; Women: 4-7) - topped 
by the performance of sophomore Joel Rousseau, 
who reached the NCAA Division III Championships for 
the second straight year, and who also became an All- 
American for the first time. In fact, Joel became WPI’s only 
All-American this season when he finished 3 rd in the 100- 
butterfly. He was seeded #1 after the morning trials when 
he finished with what was destined to be the fastest time in 
the 100 fly during the meet (49.31, a WPI record). His 3 rd - 
place finish is thought to be the highest finish in WPI school 
history for any WPI swimmer. He thus became only the 
second WPI male All-American in its swimming history. 
The only other was George Bliss Emerson (’32) in 1931. 
Joel also competed in two other events - the 50 freestyle 
and 100 freestyle — at the NCAA’s at Hope College in 
Holland, Michigan. Earlier, Joel was named All- 
NEWMAC Second Team in the 100 butterfly at the 
NEWMAC Championships at MIT in late February. As a 
team, WPI finished 8-3, thus producing its 6 th consecutive 
non-losing season - the only varsity sport at WPI that can 
make that claim. Included was a pair of wins over Holy 
Cross and Clark in the City Championships. The men’s 
swimmers are the only team that can boast a victory over a 
Division I team (HC) this past year. The men also finished 
6 th of 7 in the NEWMAC’s. During the season, the WPI 
men set an astounding 20 team and individual records. 

Besides Rousseau, other record-setters on this squad include 
co-captain and grad student Matt Musiak, freshman Jeffer 
Meyer, senior co-captain Taras Bouzakine, and freshma 
Chase Johnson. On the women’s side, WPI finished 4-' 
Senior tri-captain Laura Desi established two school recorc 
and junior Jackie Cormier one during the season. As a tearr 
the women placed 9 th of 10 at the NEWMAC Championship 
at Wellesley. Named NEWMAC All-Academic wer

Men’s & Women’s Track and Field 

T he track & field teams provided plenty of good 
news throughout the indoor and outdoor seasons. 
While there were plenty of great performances on 
the field of play, perhaps the best news came off the field as 
two WPI competitors were named “ESPN The Magazine” 
Academic All-Americans. Senior distance runner Hunter 
Bennett-Daggett was named a Second Team Academic All- 
American overall. Bennett-Daggett (First Team) and junior 
sprinter/jumper Lindsay Bulso (Second Team) were named 
Academic All-Americans in District I. On the field, WPI 
was led on the men’s side by several who achieved All- 
ECAC or All-New England status. Named All-New 
England indoors were senior Miguel Concepcion (55- 
meters, 2 nd place) and sophomore Maceo Braxton (55- 
meters, 5 th place). Named All-New England outdoors were 
freshman Chris McCann (800 meters, 6 th place), Braxton 
(100 meters, 7 th place), and senior Pete Lohrmann 
(decathlon, 8 th place). Reaching All-ECAC status outdoors 
was the 4x100 relay team of Concepcion, junior Pack 
Lapointe, senior Gabe Pereira, and Braxton for an 8 th -place 
finish. The same foursome was named All-NEWMAC 
for a 2 nd -place finish in the 4x100. The NEWMAC’s were 
hosted by WPI for the first time since 2001. Named 
NEWMAC All-Academic were Bennett-Daggett, 
Concepcion, Lohrmann, sophomore Paul Freitas, junior 
Alex White, and sophomore Nick Wirth. As a team, WPI 
finished 4 th in the NEWMAC’s, tied for 19 th in the New 
England’s Indoors, and 23 rd in the New England’s 
Outdoors. On the women’s side, WPI finished 6 th in the 
NEWMAC’s, 20 th in the New England’s Indoors, and tied 
for 25 th in the New England’s Outdoors. In the New 

England’s Indoors, Bulso finished 4 th in the 55-meter hurdlt 
and 8 th in the triple jump. In the New England’s Outdoor 
the 4x800 relay team of sophomore Caitlin Wood, senior L 
Rosinha, sophomore Megan Murphy, and grad studer 
Yvonne Mok finished 8 th . All the above were accorded A1 
New England status. Named NEWMAC All-Academic wei 
Bulso, Murphy, and sophomore Amanda McCullough, 
number of WPI athletes came close, but no one qualified fc 
the NCAA Division III nationals, either indoors or outdoor 
That broke a tremendous streak of 18 straight appearanci 
over a 9-year period where at least one WPI athlete ha 
reached the nationals, both indoors and outdoors. 





Cross Country 

T he men’s and women’s cross country teams had 
some good performances during the fall season. 
Perhaps the moment of greatest recognition for the 
cross country teams came when senior co-captain Hunter 
Bennett-Daggett of Yamhill, Oregon, rode his perfect 4.0 
GPA to become an “ESPN The Magazine” Academic All- 
American (Second Team) in June. Earlier, he had been 
named a District I Academic All-American (First Team). 
Performance highlights on the field of play on the men’s 
side include the City Championships, which took place in 
Boylston and were hosted by Clark. WPI’s men captured 
their 11 th straight City title, led on that particular day by 
Bennett-Daggett, who placed 2 nd as an individual. He was 
followed by senior co-captain Scott Proulx (3 rd ), freshman 
Adam Schwartz (4 th ), and sophomore Nick Wirth (5 th ). In 
9 th , 10 th , and 11 th places were senior Doug Leenhouts, senior 
Justin Braga, and sophomore Paul Freitas respectively. On 
the women’s side, in this same race, WPI was 3 rd of 4 as a 
team. WPI’s top finisher was sophomore Megan Murphy 
in 6 th place. In 13 th was senior captain Liz Rosinha, followed 
byjunior Jamie Mohr (18 th ), Kathryn Carpenter (20 th ), and 
sophomore Stephanie Pals (21 st ). In the Tri-States a week 
later, the WPI men placed 2 nd of 15, while the women placed 
3 rd of 9. Bennett-Daggett placed 6 th for the men; Rosinha 
13 th for the women. At Westfield State a week later, the WPI 
men placed 4 th of 25, while the women placed 11 th of 20. 

Bennett-Daggett was 15 th ; Murphy 64 th . At the NEWMA( 
Championships, the WPI men placed 5 th of 7 while th 
women finished tied for 9 th of 10. Bennett-Daggett was 22 r 
Rosinha 60 th . Finally, in the New England Division I] 
Championships at Southern Maine, the WPI men place 
20 th of 39; the women 26 th of 41. Bennett-Daggett place 
98 th and Proulx 100 th for the men, while Rosinha was WPI 
top finisher on the women’s side. In other awards, sever; 
were named NEWMAC All-Academic. They include 
Bennett-Daggett, Freitas, junior Kevin Kardian, an 
sophomore Jeff Sanders for the men, and junior Hele 
Hanson, and sophomores Megan Murphy and Amanc 
McCullough for the women.

Field Hockey 

T he won-loss totals may not necessarily reflect it, 
but the field hockey team (3-14 overall; 0-8 
NEWMAC) made remarkable strides this past fall 
season. Not always competitive in recent seasons, this year’s 
team certainly was competitive. The three wins were 
produced in a remarkable 8-day span in mid-September as 
WPI defeated, in order, Bridgewater State (1-0), Anna Maria 
(2-0), and Nichols (1-0 in overtime). WPI played four other 
overtime games this year, but fell short in each — losing to 
Lasell (2-1), Worcester State (2-1), Sweet Briar (2-1), and 
Mount Holyoke (1-0). In a number of those contests, WPI 
had the advantage in terms of shots on goal and in field 
position. WPI had only two seniors on this team — forward 
co-captain Erin Foley and goalkeeper Missy Kahn. Kahn 
was the hot goalkeeper during WPI’s three-game win 
streak - all shutouts. At season’s end, junior back Sarah 
Stout earned First Team All-NEWMAC honors. In 
addition, the following were named NEWMAC All- 
Academic: juniorjessica Farrell, sophomore Lisa Novoson, 
junior Lynn Reni, and junior Jessica Roy. Next season 
offers even more hope as WPI field hockey continues to 
rebound under 3 rd -year head coach Johanna DiCarlo. 
Among the returnees will be junior co-captain Whitney 



T he baseball team (8-24 overall; 4-8 NEWMAC; 
0-1 NEWMAC Tourney) had a somewhat 
disappointing season following a year in which it 
had gone to the EC AC post-season tourney. This year’s 
team got off to an unexpectedly bad start, finishing 1-10 
on its southern swing to Fort Myers, Florida, with its only 
win coming against New Jersey City (9-7). Following a 
10-game losing streak, including its first two games up 
north, Chris Robertson’s troops came up with a choice 5- 
2 win over Worcester State, a team that was destined to 
reach the NCAA Tournament. Senior captain and RHP 
Shawn Walker pitched the complete-game victory. In mid- 
April, WPI won three straight, including a dramatic 10-9 
triumph at Springfield, a 7-4 win at Brandeis, and a 1-0 
win over Clark at home. In the win over Springfield, WPI 
trailed 8-0 entering the 8 th inning but scored 6 in the 8 th 
inning and 4 more in the 9 th . Sophomore IB Dan Mahoney 
knocked in the go-ahead runs with a two-out double in 
the 9 th . In the 1-0 whitewash of Clark, junior RHP Paul 
Ragaglia hurled a 5-hit complete-game masterpiece. The 
season ended with a solid 7-4 win over Elms on May 3, 
with Ragaglia getting credit for the win and Walker the 
save. In the NEWMAC playoff game at Springfield, WPI 
was tied at 2 in the 6 th before losing 6-2. Junior 3B Nick 
Angelini made First Team All-NEWMAC for the second 
straight year. He led the conference in home runs with 9, 
doubles with 16, home runs per game (0.28), doubles per 
game (0.50), and RBI’s per game (1.19). He finished with 
38 RBI’s overall. Junior OF Mike Mancuso topped the 
team with a .310 batting average for the season. He was 
followed by sophomore SS Matt Fiore (.306), Angelini 
(.299), freshman IB Ryan Rainone (.295), freshman SS- 
2B Brandon Steacy (.282), junior DH Steve Taylor (.279), 
senior OF TJ McLaughlin (.266), and OF Bill Flaherty 
(.263). In the pitching department, Ragaglia finished with 
a hard-luck 2-5 record to go along with a very good 3.23 
EILA. Freshman RHP Mike Ball was 0-0, 3.75; Walker 2- 
6, 5.92; freshman LHP Brendan Devereaux 0-1, 7.50; and 
freshman RHP Brian Duncan 1-2, 7.62. Other pitchers 
with at least one win included freshman RHP Ryan 
Smalanskas 1-4, junior RHP Craig Shevlin 1-3, and senior 
LHP Jeff Wolf-Jaworski 1-2. In addition, sophomore Matt 
Burger was 7 th in the NEWMAC in doubles per game 
(0.32), playing the outfield part-time. Flaherty, McLaughlin, 
Taylor, and Walker served as captains for the squad. 




I f there was one varsity team that exceeded expectations 
more than any other this season, it very well may have 
been the softball team (20-15-1 overall; 5-11 
NEWMAC; 0-1 NEWMAC Tourney). Coming off a 2004 
season with an 11 -20 overall record, this year’s team finished 
20-15-1. The 20 wins smashed the old school record of 17 
set in 1994. Johanna DiCarlo’s troops got off to a good 
start with a 7-2 mark on its southern swing to Myrtle Beach, 
South Carolina. Included were a pair of 5-inning 8-0 wins 
over Penn State-Altoona, and later a 4-1 victory over a 
good Juniata team which ended the trip. To start the 
northern portion of the season, the home folks got the 
inkling “we might be on to something big here” when WPI 
swept Amherst, 2-1 and 9-5, in a doubleheader. Not long 
thereafter, WPI easily defeated Wheelock, 14-0 and 10-0, 
behind a pair of no-hitters by sophomore PJTP Meghan 
Kelly in game #1 and sophomore RHP Jennifer Parker 
and freshman RHP Heather Hassett in game #2. Later in 
April, WPI swept MIT in a twinbill, 5-0 and 5-2, defeated 
always powerful Wheaton in the first game of a 
doubleheader, 4-1, swept Newbury, 8-0 and 11-1, swept 
Worcester State, 5-4 and 12-3, and then defeated Wellesley 
in the first game of a doubleheader, 8-7 in 11 innings. In a 
first-round NEWMAC playoff game, WPI gave eventual 
conference tourney champion Babson a scare before 
bowing, 4-3. Babson represented the NEWMAC in the 
NCAA Tourney. Among individuals, Kelly had a banner 
year. The Burlington, Mass, native was named All-ECAC 
First Team as a utility player and All-NEWMAC First 
Team. She was honored mid-season as the ECAC Co- 
Pitcher of the Week and NEWMAC Pitcher of the Week. 
In addition, she was named winner of WPI’s Carolyn 
McCabe Award, emblematic of the school’s top female 
sophomore (sportsmanship). Kelly had quite a year with 
her team-leading .395 batting average and her school- 
record 13 victories and school-record 123 strikeouts on

Peddler is the student-run organization that prepares the WPI yearbook. The name comes from John Boynton’s peddl-. 
cart. The group of students strives to record the graduating class’s personality and the events of the year that form W1 
history. Senior activities, sports, “student life,” Greek life, and student clubs constitute the foundation on which the be 
is built. The year is spent gathering photos of events and putting the yearbook together. All students are invited to h 
with this important task. 



Tech News 

Founded in 1909, the WPI Newspeak Association (formerly Tech News Association) is the second-oldest recognized 
student organization on campus, excluding fraternities. The group is comprised of students who volunteer their time each 
week to tend to the operations of the student newspaper and various publications. The Newspeak Association publishes 
about 25 issues of Tech News per year. The newspaper ranges from 8 to 16 pages. The paper is prepared using high- 
powered personal computers and scanners, Nikon and Sony camera equipment, and the association’s own darkroom 
facility. Hard-copy paste-ups are sent to Saltus Press in Worcester for printing. The Newspeak Association maintains 
hard-copy archives of all issues dating back to 1973, as well as electronic versions dating back to 1994 which can be found 
online at . WPI’s Gordon Library maintains an archive of Tech News and Newspeak to 1909 in both 
hard-copy and microfilm formats. 

WPI is fortunate enough to have a squad of dedicated EMT’s 
and First Responders who are trained and equipped to respond 
to almost any medical emergency 24 hours a day, 7 days a 
week. Since 1990, WPI EMS has been fighting the course of 
natural selection on campus. The squad is composed of 
individuals who willingly donate their time and effort to serve 
the WPI community whenever and wherever the need arises. 
Dispatched through the WPI Police, these students traverse 
the campus on foot and segway, answering the call of duty be 
it lunchtime or 5 a.m. WPI EMS has treated hundreds of 
patients for everything from chipped teeth to bone fractures, 
concussions to patients not breathing, and cardiac conditions. 
So when natural selection seems to be running its course, 
remember, the guys and gals in blue will come running, too. 


A Capella Groups _ 


Audiophiles - From the musical breeding grounds of Worcester Polytechnic Institute comes the instrument-shunning 
vocal talent of The Audiophiles. This brainchild of two overly ambitious WPI students was created over two Tortilla 
Sam’s Taco Salads, commonly used as brain fuel. Showcasing 11 voices of gold, their repertoire ranges from the Dance 
Hall Crashers to Dispatch to jazz standards to original and self-deprecating arrangements. 

Interstate 8 - Interstate 8 is an all-female a cappella group comprised of 10 WPI students, all belonging to Alden Voices, 
the women’s concert choir at WPI. Members arrange most of their repertoire and have a strong passion for singing music. 

Simple Harmonic Motion - Formerly known as the WPI Baker’s Dozen, Simple Harmonic Motion took its new name 
in 1994 when it became a student directed group. At the beginning of each school year, SHM selects its voices from the 
membership of the WPI Glee Club. SHM sings in a wide range of vocal styles including barbershop, traditional a cappella. 
doo wop, contemporary a cappella, and pop (rock, country, folk, blues). As a part of the Glee Club, SHM has been lucky 
enough to travel with that group on its many European tours, seeing the sights in the Czech Republic, Ireland, Italy, and 
most recently Spain.

Convention of the American Choral Directors in Boston. The group usually travels on an extended tour every otl 
year; tours have included San Francisco, Austria, Belgium, France, Germany, and Spain. In 1994, the Glee Club and t 
Regis College chorus went to Italy. In 1996, the group was scheduled to tour England and Ireland with the Wells Colle 
chorus, but due to unforseen circumstances the tour was postponed. To date, five Glee Club recordings have been release 
including music commissioned specifically for the group. 


^Iden Voices 

dden Voices is the women’s chorus at WPI. Founded in 1978, the chorus performs from the vast literature available for 
reble voices, from Renaissance motets to Broadway standards. In addition to its own performance and touring schedule,

We are proud that such a diverse mixture of character coincides with a Brotherhood that is tight] 
bound by lifetime friendship and unity. Our organization is proactive in its efforts to give back to th 
community. This year, AXP helped raise upwards of $2000 through fundraisers coordinated in suppo 
of multiple charitable organizations. AXP also contributed 600+ hours of community service durin 
the first semester. It is with admiration and pride that AXP congratulates the Brothers who are part ( 
the WPI Class of 2005 for the completion of their education at WPI. The chapter is grateful to the? 
Brothers who have been loyal for 4 years, persevering in their efforts to make the fraternity as stror 
as it can be. Although their presence will be missed by those who remain undergraduates, the Brother 
ties with these men will remain strong for a lifetime.

O nce again, the Tau house proved itself to be one of the top chapters in the nation. For tl 
second time in a row, the Gamma Sigma chapter of the Alpha Tau Omega fraternity h 
received true merit, the highest award given to a chapter. Through donations to WHY IV! 
and other charities totaling over $3,715 and logging over 1,760 hours of community service, AT 1 
continues to demonstrate its commitment to Community Service and Philanthropy. WPI AT 1 
Alumni coming from all over the country gathered together to celebrate Ma Fell on her “29th and 
few years” birthday. It was a memorable time with stories of past and present shenanigans and goc 
times had by all. These types of events show that fraternal life isn’t all about parties and they make i 
proud to be ATOs. But let us not forget the parties! ATO has single handedly patented the Wet I s 
Wild foam party at WPI and has sparked many to imitate, but none to duplicate. Many have done tl 
unthinkable and swallowed a live goldfish at ATO’s legendary Tequila & Goldfish party. But ATO 
never complacent, and we constantly strive to do more community service, make our parties eve

With a highly respected image at WPI, we believe our brotherhood, through both its diversity an

A great community service was 
performed by the Worcester chapter 
of Lambda Chi Alpha last summer, 
when the Baldwin Elementary 
School in Pawtucket, Pdiode Island, 
undertook the challenge of building 
a playground (pictured above). It was 
in honor of an 8-year-old student, 
Aaron Hotchkiss, who tragically died 
in a house fire. The playground was 
to be built by school volunteers using 
donated materials and was scheduled 
to take two to three days to complete. 
Brothers from the Worcester chapter 
helped ensure that the project was a

Phi Gamma Delta 

T he departing senior class would like to dedicate this message to the undergraduates of ou 
chapter. We express our deepest gratitude for the friendships and experiences we have al 
accumulated throughout our college careers. While everyone will undoubtedly walk awa a 
from the last four years with something different, there are those times that we have trouble recalling 
but never seem to forget. The Islands, Pajama Jams, and formals of course, along with Pig Dinner 
golf teams, Italian night, eggs any style, and house jobs that became infused in all of our vocabularies 
Countless times a seemingly ordinary night transcended into an unforgettable one, and unforgettabL 
nights became unbelievable. 

Just as unforgettable are the people we’ve spent it with. With brothers from all corners of th< 
country, “Ole 99” was anything but ordinary, leaving its mark on WPI. Beyond that is our fraterna 
association. Living and working beside men of similar ideals, hopes, and accomplishments is trub 
unique. Here, Phi Gamma Delta shines the brightest. 

In parting, we wish the undergrads well. We leave many things: games of smash, many game 
of “die,” several teeth, patches on the walls, going out to the CoFo or Leits, championship intramura 
teams, nights we don’t want to remember, nights we are still trying to remember, E-room renovations 
and thunders that will never be lived down. The one thing we will take and have forever is friendship 
it is that alone which will be with us until the end and has helped us to get through our stay at WP 
but has also made us never want to leave. 

Friendship, our sweetest influence.

S ince our founding on March 10, 1894, the Massachusetts Delta chapter of Sigma Alpha Epsilo 
has continued its 111 years of excellence. Our members are a diverse group of men from a 
parts of the country, working together to be a successful group on campus. We are gentlemer 
living together for the purposes of academic success, career development, and social interaction. 

At SAE, we take great pride in our academic achievements. In the past fifteen years, we hav 
consistently been one of the leading fraternities academically, and our brothers have been activ 
members in every scholastic honor society on campus. We also pride ourselves on our philanthropy 
as we participate in numerous events and fundraisers. We have been nominated often for, and hav 
twice won, the John O. Mosley award for fraternity zeal, the highest national honor an SAE chapte 
can be presented with. 

Famous alumni of our chapter include: Robert Goddard, John Higgins, Sanford Riley, and Fran 
Harrington. More important, however, are the alumni who come back after they graduate. Tim

F raternity life has, in recent years, evolved more than any other aspect of college life. It ha 
witnessed a shift from all-out, hedonistic partying to the development of well-balanced campr 
leaders who excel in academic and athletic achievements and help both their college an 
community. We are proud to partake in that evolution, being a campus leader in grade point average: 
community service hours, and athletics; yet, we do not pride ourselves on the pursuit of making or 
college years the greatest time of our lives. Throughout this evolution, Sigma Phi Epsilon ta 
maintained its tradition of providing its members with friendships that last forever and developin 
leaders who will help shape the future.

T au Kappa Epsilon’s remarkably strong brotherhood is built on a diverse group of men, consider 
“not for wealth, rank, or honor; but for personal worth and character.” The Tau Kapp

brothers at TKE’s Zeta Mu chapter strive to excel in leadership, scholarship, athletics, and service t< 
our community. All of our brothers live their lives to exemplify the fraternity’s cardinal principles o 
love, charity, and esteem in our daily lives. These men of sterling character carry on to becom 
leaders in their businesses and communities.

Theta Chi 

W hat is a fraternity? It’s a brotherhood of men who join together to share in a common 
bond of friendship. We live together and relax together during our undergraduate 
years. Later, as alumni, we’ll have strong friendships for life among those who have 
been closest to us in college. 

Although all fraternities share similar ideas, there is something different about each individual 
house. At Theta Chi, we seek new brothers who want to share our way of life and who will 
become active partners in building a stronger Theta Chi during their undergraduate years. 
Going to college means more than just getting a good education. It means maturing and 
learning how to handle yourself in all sorts of social situations. Theta Chi provides an opportunity 
to grow together.

Zeta Psi 

T he Pi Tau chapter of Zeta Psi is very involved on campus, with active brothers in mam 
student organizations at WPI. The brothers of Zeta Psi also hold annual charity fundraiser 
such as the Rockathon (a joint effort with Phi Sigma Sigma sorority) and the Haunted House 
Both events raise money for Zete Kids, a national foundation created by Zeta Psi to help children ir 
need across North America. On a national level, Pi Tau is an exceptional chapter, receiving both ar 
Outstanding Chapter award and a Gold Escutcheon award at the 2004 Zeta Psi National Conventior 
in Toronto. 

Zeta Psi is involved in a number of school sports, with outstanding participation from active brother 
on the following varsity teams: baseball, basketball, swimming and diving, crew, and wrestling. Ir 
addition, Zeta Psi has a strong presence in club sports, with brothers on the ultimate frisbee, men;

they’re guaranteed a good time with them. I have all of this but something even more special! You are not just a Brother but a Best Friend! 
You, Lyn, and I have this unique bond and it would not be special without you! Congratulations Bob!

F©r£ii>£ a Legacy 

The contents of this book are representative of the abilities of a small but dedicated yearbook 
staff While our intention was to present all aspects of campus life, there were many roadblocks 
along the way that hindered the realization of this goal. Still, we believe this is an improvement 
over recent books and hope that it will be cherished by members of the Class of 2005 throughout 
their lives. 

We are indebted to the many people who provided encouragement and support throughout the 
year. Without them, the completion of this edition of the Peddler would not have been possible. 
Among the people we would like to thank are: 

Amy Luchans 
Louise Campbell 
Jim McLaughlin 

Caren Korin and DaVor Photography 

John Carrier and Herff-Jones 

All the seniors who provided us with photos 

Stephen Raczynski 

Terri, Chad, and the WPI Print Shop 

Marge Roncone and the Registrar’s Office 

WPI Mail Services 

Alumni Relations 

Cathy Battelle and the Events Office 

President Berkey, Janet Begin Pdchardson, and all the administrators who have 
provided encouragement, insight, and advice throughout the year

in Gettysburg, PA 17325.
