2006-07 Season Review:

Twice during the 2007 season, the Muhlenberg men’s tennis team started a match, only to have it cancelled when the rain came. Like those matches, the return of the Mule program to the upper levels of the Centennial

Conference got underway, but was unfinished.

Muhlenberg went 5-7 in the spring, a one-win improvement from the previous year. Even though the Mules finished 2-6 in the CC for the fourth straight season, they showed signs of a promising future. Their young team frequently included three freshmen and a sophomore in the six singles spots.

Injuries also played a role in the record, as only one player started at singles in all 12 matches. With improved health and greater experience, Muhlenberg should be ready to make its move next year.

Among the highlights of the season were a pair of 5-4 victories. The first came at McDaniel, when the Mules overcame a Green Terror sweep of doubles by winning five of six singles matches. In the season finale, Muhlenberg edged Commonwealth Conference runner-up Elizabethtown.

Four players tied for the team lead with five singles wins apiece – senior Michael DiVita, junior Jamie Goldman, sophomore Brian Wernick and freshman Jonathan Farber. Freshman Mark Apostolos added four, and classmate Robbie Goldwein picked up three wins playing at No. 1 the entire season.

Apostolos and junior Jesse Kirschenbaum combined for a team-best 4-2 doubles mark.
