A weekly look at what’s going on in the Centennial Conference:

Women’s Basketball

Five of the 10 CC schools that played over the weekend did so without losing a game: the four 2003 playoffs teams (Muhlenberg, Johns Hopkins, McDaniel and Swarthmore) and Bryn Mawr, which opened up with a 62-42 win against Baptist Bible ... Johns Hopkins captured its tournament championship with a win over Springfield, while Swarthmore knocked off Moravian, 74-67 ... McDaniel nipped Buffalo State, 65-62 in overtime ... The most impressive win by a CC team came when Gettysburg edged 12th-ranked King’s, 62-61, in a tournament at Marymount. The Bullets then lost to No. 15 St. Lawrence and Ohio Wesleyan ... Franklin & Marshall, the Mules’ opponent in their CC opener on Tuesday, is the only 0-2 team in the CC after dropping home games to York and No. 25 Washington & Jefferson ... Dickinson, Ursinus and Washington are all 1-1.

Men’s Basketball

Franklin & Marshall, Gettysburg, Haverford, Johns Hopkins and Washington all started 2-0; Haverford for the first time in six years and Washington for the first time in nine years. The Fords scored wins against Rensselaer and Whittier, teams Swarthmore lost to by 18 and 31 points ... No. 19 F&M won big against Washington & Lee (63-43) and Guilford (90-54) ... Gettysburg got two free throws with 37 seconds left to defeat Muskingum, 59-57 ... Johns Hopkins registered a 10-point win against North Carolina Wesleyan, which received votes in the preseason poll ... McDaniel split two games, while Dickinson lost a pair by a combined 54 points ... Defending CC champ Ursinus opens up on Tuesday.

Henning Named to Academic All-America Third Team

Senior Justin Henning of the Muhlenberg men’s soccer team has been named Justin Henning to the 2003 Academic All-America College Division Men’s Soccer Team (third team), chosen by the College Sports Information Directors of America.

Henning qualified for the Academic All-America team when he was a first-team selection to the District II All-Academic squad earlier this month. To be nominated for the Academic All-America program, a student-athlete must be at least a sophomore with a 3.2 cumulative grade-point average and a starter or significant reserve on his team. The College Division consists of all non-Division I colleges and universities in the United States.

A biology major, Henning served as team captain and starting right back in 2003, leading the Mules to a 17-5-1 record and the Centennial Conference championship. He received All-CC honorable mention after anchoring a defense that allowed only 16 goals in 23 games and recorded 12 shutouts. Henning also contributed to the offense with two goals and an assist.

Henning is the sixth Academic-All American in the history of Muhlenberg men’s soccer, and the third in the last three years.
