|Title:||Class of 1990|
Mark T. McCabe, your achievements on and off the field were unparalleled. You played on the football team during a time when the Engineers were not often in the win column. Still, you always gave your all, playing with perseverance and pride each week until the last seconds ticked off the clock. When the college considered discontinuing football in 1979, you diligently worked to save to sport you loved. For your efforts and extraordinary leadership, you were awarded the Boston Tobacco Table Unsung Hero Award.
While earning four varsity letters in track and football, you became WPI's first two-time All-American in track. Your toss of 172'7'' in the hammer won you a third-place finish at the Division III national championships in 1979.
That was also the year you shattered the school record-a record you had set yourself-with a throw of 182'7'', an achievement that has yet to be exceeded.
Your teammates recognized your contributions by electing you captain of the track team and tri-captain of the football team in your senior year. Your accomplishments were not confined to the track and the gridiron. You graduated with distinction and were a member of Chi Epsilon, the civil engineering honor society.
Mark T. McCabe it is with great pleasure that we honor you tonight for your outstanding accomplishments as a student-athlete by inducting you into the WPI Athletic Hall of Fame.
