Mules Drop Conference Opener

The Muhlenberg volleyball team was two points away from winning its first Centennial Conference match of the season, but dropped the fourth and fifth games and fell at Dickinson in a typical nail-biter.

It was the third five-game match of the season for the Mules (4-6, 0-1) and their 11th in the last two years (including two against Dickinson). In all three this year, the team that got to two wins first wound up losing the match.

Junior Julie Lauro led the attack with 20 kills, while sophomore Courtney Williams added a career-high 11. Junior Jen Weist recorded a season-high 29 digs.

Senior Kristen Bruschi recorded her second straight hat trick, and the Muhlenberg field hockey team needed every one of the three goals to hold off Drew, 3-2, in its final non-conference game of the season.

The Mules (5-2), who won their third straight, controlled the action throughout the game – until they got two-goal leads. Bruschi tipped in a Sarah Fosdick blast off a penalty corner 9:25 into the game, then scored on a penalty stroke six minutes later.

The Rangers (3-3) came to life after the second Muhlenberg goal and finally dented the scoreboard off a penalty corner with 6:34 left in the half.

Bruschi scored her third goal with 13:02 to play, but the Mules were on the defensive for much of the remainder of the game. A defensive save by Fosdick proved to be crucial when Drew scored with 2:10 on the clock.

The hat trick for Bruschi was the fourth of her career. She is the first Muhlenberg player to score three goals in back-to-back games since 1968, when Evelyn Boehringer Baus turned the trick(s) against Moravian and Upsala. Bruschi now has 10 goals (of the Mules’ 15) on the season and is the first player in team history to have three consecutive years with double digits in goals.
