MUHLENBERG ATHLETES REMEMBER 9/11
Where were you on September 11?
Someone woke me up in the sorority house. I went to the Red Door Cafe, where a lot of people were watching in disbelief. As I was walking down Academic Row, I sensed a feeling of unity that hadn’t been there before.
— Jennifer Leigh, senior, volleyball

I had been in class since 8 am and I had no clue until I overheard people talking about it. 9/11 ribbon I thought they were joking.
— Robin Holden, senior, cross country

I was in class and thought it was an accident. Eventually I learned it was more serious and went back to my room to watch the events unfold with my friends. I was in a rage. I felt helpless.
— Steve Kreider, senior, football

How has September 11 changed you personally?
I am more aware that things like this can happen here. We’re not invincible.
— Becki Toth, junior, softball

I think it makes me look at life a little bit differently. Not to put off until tomorrow what you can do today ... and live life to the fullest. I don’t want to sit back and watch life pass me by.
— Mackenzie Parke, junior, tennis

My priorities have changed; patriotism is more important to me. Now, I sing along with the National Anthem.
— Jennifer Leigh

How has September 11 changed your approach to competition?
It made me realize that what we do as athletes is so trivial in the greater scheme of things.
— Mike Koth, senior, football

Losing a tennis match isn’t the biggest deal in the world when you look at all the terrible tragedies going on around us.
— Mackenzie Parke

Has September 11 increased or decreased the importance of athletics in your life?
For me personally, it has increased my love for my teammates, friends and family. Soccer is my release and makes me feel better about what’s going on.
— Jamie Gluck, senior, soccer

How will you pay tribute to the victims of 9/11 one year later?
By remembering and trying to understand exactly what happened in order to prevent something like this from happening again.
— Ben Long, senior, soccer

I’ll go to the events on camps, like the candlelight vigil. Last year, it was amazing.
— Becki Toth

I will help organize the Remembrance Run again this year on Homecoming 9/11 ribbon weekend to help pay tribute to the members of the Muhlenberg community that were lost that day.
— Robin Holden

By remembering and praying for the victims and for the government’s continued fight against terrorism. I hope the media doesn’t overwhelm us.
— Steve Kreider

I will talk with my family. I wish I could be with them.
— Jamie Gluck

Women’s Soccer Wins with Big Second Half

Junior Jennifer Gitto had a goal and an assist as the Muhlenberg women’s soccer team scored three times in the second half to come from behind and defeat Wilkes, 3-1.

The Mules (2-3) have now scored a victory against Wilkes in 12 straight seasons — every year they have been a varsity team.

Muhlenberg trailed, 1-0, at halftime, but sophomore Rebecca Armstrong scored the equalizer 13 minutes into the second half. Eight minutes later, Gitto rifled a shot into the top right portion of the net to put the Mules in front.

Gitto assisted on junior Dawn Iberer’s sixth goal of the season with 7:10 to play, giving the Muhlenberg some breathing room. With the three points, Gitto matched her total from all of last year.
