Lehigh Part of Consortium to Create Systems Predicting Structural Failures

More important perhaps, the new technology, called the Structural Integrity Prognosis System, or SIPS, could allow expensive equipment to stay in useful service past its predicted lifetime.

Letters Wins NCAA Title; Olympic Trials Berth

It was quite a weekend for Troy Letters, his Lehigh University teammates, and wrestling coach Greg Strobel, at the NCAA Division I championships. Letters, a sophomore, claimed his first NCAA title, while four other teammates earned All-American honors. Letters was quick to point out "Coach Strobel was named [National Wrestling Coaches Association] coach of the year." By advancing to the NCAA final, Letters earns an automatic berth to the Olympic trials in July. "There are the best wrestlers in the country at the Olympic trials," said Letters, who said it would be a long shot for him to earn an Olympic berth.
