WOMEN’S TENNIS, BASEBALL WIN AT HOME
Softball Splits; Holak Breaks Javelin Record
Baseball Pounds Out 19 Hits

Junior Justin Graf went 5-for-5 to lead a 19-hit attack as the Muhlenberg baseball team (9-8) snapped a three-game losing streak by defeating Drew, 12-8.

Graf tripled to lead off the bottom of the first and cleared the bases with a double in the second. He added three singles to become the first Mule in four years to get five hits in a game.

Also contributing to the offensive explosion were junior Ben Carr, who was 4-for-5 with four RBI, and sophomore Joel Rush, who had three hits. Junior Justin Rubenstein scored three runs, one from first base on Carr’s pop single in the fourth.

Freshman outfielder Jim Dugan, making an emergency start at third base, had two hits, scored three runs, and saved two runs by making a diving stop at third with the bases loaded in the top of the seventh.

Freshman Aaron Regensburg worked into the seventh to earn the win. Senior Ryan White finished up, earning his first career save.

Senior Joshua Carter scored a pair of runs, increasing his career total to 118, one short of the school record.

wind to throw the javelin 182 feet, 9 inches, one inch better than the school record set by senior Jim Hayes in 1999. Holak finished second in the even, ahead of Hayes (172-1) and fourth-place freshman John Brodowski (164-9), who also won the 400-meter hurdles in 58.5 seconds.

Tennis Avenges Second 2001 Defeat

For the second straight match, the Muhlenberg women’s tennis team defeated a regionally ranked opponent, toppling Washington, 7-2.

Washington was ranked 15th in the Atlantic South Region at the end of the fall season and handed the Mules a 6-3 loss last year. Muhlenberg (3-0, 2-0) has now defeated two of the three CC teams it lost to in 2001; only Franklin & Marshall is left.

Sophomore Gena Ross, Sarah Niebler and Megan Schreiber and freshman Emily Oster all won at both singles and doubles, Oster posting a 6-0, 6-0 victory.

• Softball: Muhlenberg 1, Cortland State 0; Montclair State 3, Muhlenberg 2. Outstanding pitching performances by sophomore Danielle DeLucia and senior Angela Tyson gave the Mules (8-4) a split on the first day of the Montclair State/Kean Classic.

DeLucia hurled a brilliant one-hitter for her fourth career shutout in the opener. She struck out six and faced one batter above the minimum, allowing only a leadoff single in the sixth.

Muhlenberg scored the only run of the game in the fourth, when junior Meghan Woods led off with a double and eventually came around to score on a ground ball by sophomore Kate Dischino.

The win was the 107th in the career of Head Coach Ruth Gibbs, making her the winningest coach in program history.

Tyson was a hard-luck loser in the second game, which was played under tiebreaker rules in the eighth inning. She allowed only four hits and one earned run. Sophomore Jaclyn Maser had both of the Mules’ hits, driving in the tying run with two out in the top of the seventh.
