Soccer Teams Ranked in Region

Both Muhlenberg soccer teams are ranked in the top 10 in the Mid-Atlantic Region, and both have upcoming games against teams ranked in the top 10 in the country.

The women’s soccer team slipped to sixth in the region following a 1-0 loss to Scranton and a 3-2 double-overtime win against Smith. The Mules, who were third in the region and 20th in Division III last week, trail Messiah, New Jersey, Scranton, Johns Hopkins and Moravian.

Muhlenberg travels to Grantham, Pa., to take on Messiah (ranked fourth in Division III) tomorrow. The Mules also have a road game at Johns Hopkins, which received votes for the top 25, next Saturday.

The men’s soccer team remained at No. 7 in the regional rankings for the second week in a row. Muhlenberg travels to Johns Hopkins (second in the region, 11th in Division III) on Saturday and Messiah (first in the region, fourth in Division III) next Wednesday.

Kristen Bruschi Julie Lauro

Kristen Bruschi and Julie Lauro were named player of the week in their respective sports by the Centennial Conference.

Bruschi (above left) shared the honor for the second time in her career after breaking the 42-year-old school record for goals scored. She tied the mark with a goal against Scranton, then broke it by notching both goals in a 2-0 shutout of Elizabethtown.

Bruschi’s 46 career goals are not only a school record, but they also rank fifth on the CC all-time chart. She is sixth in CC history with 105 career points.

Despite allowing only two goals in four games, the Muhlenberg field hockey team is 2-2. The Mules two losses were by one goal to sixth-ranked Montclair State and on penalty strokes to 19th-ranked Juniata.

Lauro (above right) received the weekly honor for the fourth time following her MVP performance at the Buttermaker Tournament. She averaged 5.07 kills and 3.00 digs per game in four matches, recording double-doubles in kills and digs in three of the matches, including a 26-kill, 17-dig, four-block effort in a five-game match against tournament champion FDU-Florham.

Lauro leads the CC with her season average of 4.90 kills per game, nearly one kill more than the second-place hitter. She also is fourth in hitting percentage (.280).
