capture its fourth Centennial Conference championship in eight years at the conference tournament at Eagles Landing Country Club in Berlin, Md.

Led by sophomore Brian Farrelly, who shot 231 for the three-day tournament to tie for second place, the Mules shot rounds of 310, 305 and 321 to beat the Diplomats and Bullets by five strokes.

After opening with a 77, Farrelly climbed up the leaderboard with a second-day 74 and finished with an 80 in the final round. Senior Matt Katz placed three spots and three shots back of Farrelly, and sophomore Matthew Schoenfeld tied for eighth with a 236.

team lead. Katz and fellow senior and captain Jesse Neider, whose 76 on Saturday helped the Mules take a three-stroke advantage into Sunday, won their second CC title.

It was the first title and a welcome going-away present for Head Coach Kevin Edwards, who was coaching Muhlenberg for his final season before taking a job as a pro at the new Riverview Country Club in Easton.

The Mules came up with several other impressive showings throughout the season. They shared second place at the Moravian Fall Invitational. Schoenfeld earned a share of medalist honors with a 76 at the Lebanon Valley Spring Tournament.

The Mules also placed second at their Muhlenberg Fall Classic. Freshman Brian Ruht finished third to lead three Mules in the top 10. For the season, Katz led the team with a 78.4 average and racked up six top-10 finishes, followed by Farrelly (three), Neider and Schoenfeld (two) and Walach and Ruht (one).
