WOMEN’S TENNIS DEFEATS NYU

In a matchup between teams that both entered with 7-1 spring records, the Muhlenberg women’s tennis team swept the doubles and went on to defeat New York University, 6½-2½.

Sophomore Gena Ross teamed with freshman Emily Oster for an 8-3 win at second doubles, then posted a 6-3, 6-0 win at first singles to remain undefeated (a combined 17-0) for the spring. Sophomore Mackenzie Parke and senior Jennifer Chung won a marathon first singles match, 9-8 (7-5).

The win was the 13th straight at home for the Mules, who also received the good news that Franklin & Marshall defeated Johns Hopkins, 7-2. That left two teams with one loss in the Centennial Conference – Muhlenberg and Washington. Franklin & Marshall plays at Washington on Saturday.

• Women’s Golf: Muhlenberg sent three golfers to the Dickinson Invitational, held at Mayapple Golf Links. Senior Kathryn Baker tied for 12 with a 110.

BASEBALL WINS FOURTH STRAIGHT

Sophomore Chris O’Connor and two relievers combined on a three-hitter as the Muhlenberg baseball team defeated Swarthmore, 7-1, for its fourth straight win.

The win was the Mules’ 13th straight against the Garnet and moved them into a tie for third place in the Centennial Conference.

O’Connor (right) allowed two singles and struck out five in seven innings to improve his record to 5-1 and lower his ERA to 2.76. Senior Ryan White and junior Kevin Komeshok each pitched an inning to close out the game.

Muhlenberg (16-11, 7-3) scored four runs without the benefit of a hit in the second innings, taking advantage of three straight walks and two Garnet (2-16-1, 2-8) errors.

Sophomore Adam Sadler singled in a run in the fifth, and senior Joshua Carter capped the scoring with a two-run double in the eighth. Carter went 3-for-5 with two doubles to extend his hitting streak to 10 games and move to within three of breaking the school record for career hits.
