VOLUME 11, NO. 1 MAY 1997
When senior basketball co-captain Kim Landry graduates in May, she will leave a lasting impression as one of the greatest basketball players ever to attend WPI.
Landry has had one of the best individual seasons in WPI women's basketball history. An honorable mention All-American last year, she was named to the NEW 8 All Conference Team for the third consecutive season. On Feb. 8, she set the single-game scoring record when she exploded for 46 points against MIT, overtaking the 43-point record Chris Dunn '95 set during his senior year. She finished the season with 475 points and 243 rebounds - both career bests. During her four years at WPI she recorded 1,585 points, 857 rebounds, 86 blocks and a shooting percentage of 45 percent.
Landry has been New England Player of the Week in the ECAC (twice this year) and Player of the Week in the NEW 8 Conference and for the Worcester Area College Basketball Association. At press time she is a District I finalist on the Women's Basketball Coaches Association All-America Team ballot.
Landry knows her accomplishments are special, but she remains humble and doesn't allow the accolades to interfere with her main objective: to help the team and the program be successful. Last season she was one of the principal players on a squad that finished 23-6 and advanced to the second round of the NCAA Division III Tournament. This season she is proving that her winning year was no fluke.
The numbers elevate Landry to WPI basketball greatness. She'll have made a mark that will not be forgotten - one that will make her a sure bet for the Hall of Fame in the future.
