Centennial Conference playoffs. Muhlenberg finished in a three-way tie with Johns Hopkins and Franklin & Marshall for third place and was the odd team out when the tiebreaker formulas were applied. McDaniel is the top seed and host for the tournament.

Sophomore Kristen Bruschi capped her season by scoring twice in the first seven minutes. The two goals gave her 19 for the season, breaking the 40-year-old school record of 18. Bruschi also set a school record with 44 points in 2002.

Senior Laura Diez completed the Mules’ opening blitz by notching her 10th career goal. The score remained 3-0 until the final minute, when Holly Pico, another senior playing her final game, banged home her 20th career goal.

The Mules did not allow the Mawrters (0-18, 0-9) a shot in the game.

The 14 wins on the season tied a school record set in 1989 and tied in 1990. Muhlenberg’s 6-3 mark in the CC was its second-best ever (the team was 7-2 in 1993, the first year of the league’s existence.)
