CROSS COUNTRY RANKED SIXTH IN REGION

The Muhlenberg men’s cross country team is sixth in the Mideast Region, according to rankings released earlier this week by the NCAA.

The Mules are ranked second among Centennial Conference teams, behind only nine-time defending CC champion Haverford. The top two finishers at the NCAA Mideast Regional, scheduled for Nov. 16 at Salisbury, qualify automatically for the Division III Championships.

In the CC individual rankings, Muhlenberg is represented in the top 20 by senior Will Elson (third), freshman Alex Hotz (seventh) and junior Rob Uniszkiewicz (12th). On the women’s team, junior Diana Garretto (18th) and freshman Karen Mount (20th) are in the top 20.

Midterm Report Card

With Muhlenberg observing its Fall Break and most teams at or just past the halfway point in their seasons, we asked athletes to grade their team’s performance to date. Tomorrow: Men’s Cross Country.

Women’s Soccer: B/B+

The Mules are 7-6, 4-1 in the Centennial Conference. The two-time defending champions are one of three teams with fewer than two losses in the CC, and their next two games are against the other two (Franklin &
Jamie Gluck

Marshall and Gettysburg).

“I think I would give our team a B+, because there’s always room for improvement,” said senior midfielder Jamie Gluck. “However, when we come out and are ready to play, and work as a team, I feel that our team can accomplish anything.

“Pretty much every game this month is really important. They are all conference games. We realize that because we are in such a competitive conference, we can’t take any games lightly. Dickinson, F & M and Gettysburg will be very big games for us. They are all great teams who are ready to take us on.”

“As a midseason grade, I would give our team a B,” said junior forward Dawn Iberer. “We are improving from the beginning of the season, but still have room to move forward. I expect our final grade to be an A+, with all the talent and skill that the team has.”
