2004 Season Review:

Kristen Bruschi
Bruschi ranks second in CC history with 59 goals and 135 points. She scored a team-leading 36 points and recorded two hat tricks in 2004.
The Muhlenberg field hockey team showed it was able to hang with some of the best teams in Division III in 2004. The Mules lost games by one goal to the fifth-ranked and 16th-ranked teams in Division III (Montclair State, Gettysburg), in overtime to the No. 14 team (McDaniel) and on penalty strokes to 18th-ranked Juniata.

The team was on the brink of making the Centennial Conference playoffs, but fell by a slim one-goal margin in four league games to finish 9-8 overall, 4-6 in the CC.

After the loss to McDaniel, the Mules rebounded to win three straight CC games by a combined score of 12-0. One of those wins was a 3-0 victory
Sarah Fosdick
Fosdick recorded three defensive saves and contributed to the offense with a team-leading five assists.
over defending CC champion Johns Hopkins.

Senior Kristen Bruschi continued her assault on the Muhlenberg record books, ending her career as the all- time leader in points (135), goals (59) and assists (17). She was named to the Division III All-America third team by and the All-South Region first team by the National Field Hockey Coaches Association.

Bruschi, who represented Muhlenberg at the Division III North/South All-Star Game, became the first player in team history to be named to the All-CC first team twice. She was joined on the All-CC team by senior back Sarah Fosdick and sophomore goalie Lauren Schram, who made the second team, and senior back Pamela Coakley, who received honorable mention.

Schram started every game for the Mules and made 86 saves, including 20 at Juniata. Fosdick and Coakley led a defense that allowed only 21 goals in 17 games.
