The Muhlenberg field hockey team has climbed to No. 7 in the STX/NFHCA Division III poll.

The Mules were ranked 10th last week, but moved up after defeating Delaware Valley and then-No. 9 Montclair State. Two other teams that had been ranked ahead of Muhlenberg, No. 5 McDaniel and No. 8 Lebanon Valley, also lost during the week.

The national ranking is the highest for a Muhlenberg team since 1996, when men’s soccer was ranked third early in the season. Women’s basketball was the last Mule team in the top 10, reaching No. 8 two years ago.

One of 15 remaining undefeated teams in Division III, Muhlenberg hosts McDaniel, now ranked 13th, in its Centennial Conference opener on Friday night. The Mules also host Richard Stockton this week.
