Women’s Cross country beats the odds

Soccer, Volleyball Drop CC Openers

Men’s Soccer

The Muhlenberg men’s soccer team dropped its Centennial Conference opener at Franklin & Marshall, 1-0.

The Diplomats (6-0), ranked 18th in Division III, scored their goal late in the first half. It was the first goal allowed by the Mules this season.

The F&M goalie made a huge save with 11:07 left to preserve the lead, and a header in the last two minutes went just wide.

Women's Cross Country team with trophySomehow it was “odd” that the Muhlenberg women’s cross country team winning the Mule/Falcon Classic, and somehow it wasn’t.

Running with a split squad, and without their top four finishers from last week, the Mules finished a point ahead of Georgian Court to win the meet they co-host with Cedar Crest for the seventh time. The Muhlenberg women have won the meet every odd-numbered year this decade: 2001, 2003, 2005 and 2007.

The men, also lining up a split squad, came in second, 19 points back of Cabrini. The results showed the extraordinary depth of both Mule squads, who had only one runner compete in both last week’s Lehigh Valley Championships and the Mule/Falcon Classic, yet ran excellent meets both times.

Freshman Kim Bier led three Muhlenberg women in the top 14, coming in sixth. Right behind her was junior Janette Adams, followed by sophomore Lauren Conicella, who held off a Georgian Court runner heading to the finish line for what proved to be the difference. Freshman Hannah Mitchell was 11th, and senior Laura Clinton overtook a Georgian Court runner late in the race to finish 14th.

Junior Stuart Udis (third) and freshman Bobby Torphy (seventh) placed in the top 10 for the men.
