SOFTBALL SWEEPS MORAVIAN
BASEBALL, WOMEN’S TENNIS MOVE CLOSER TO WINS RECORDS

• Baseball: Muhlenberg 12, Dickinson 6. Junior Justin Graf went 3-for-5 and senior Joshua Carter tied the school record for hits as Muhlenberg won its seventh straight home game. The Mules (18-12, 9-4) need one more win to tie the school record of 19 in a season, set in 1982.

Carter’s fourth-inning RBI triple gave him 176 hits for his career, tying the school record set by Chuck Draper (1997-2000).

Muhlenberg trailed 2-0 before junior Steve Rohn smacked a two-run double in the second. A two-out, two-run single by sophomore Adam Sadler capped a four-run third. The Mules added four more runs in the fifth, three coming in when junior Justin Rubenstein tripled and scored when the relay throw was mishandled. Click here for line score.

• Women’s Tennis: Muhlenberg 8, Bryn Mawr 1. The No. 1 doubles team of sophomore Gena Ross and freshman Emily Oster tied the school record of 11 wins in a season as the Mules (10-1, 7-1) won their fourth straight match. Muhlenberg needs one more win to tie the school record of 11 wins, set in 1986, 1987 and 2001.

Ross and Oster headed the Mules’ fifth doubles sweep of the season with an 8-3 win. Ross also captured her singles match in straight sets, and with 21 combined wins this spring is one away from the school record.

Sophomores Mackenzie Parke and Sarah Niebler joined Ross and Oster as double winners. Freshman Peggy Paul teamed with Parke at second doubles for her first career win. Click here for box score.

• Men’s Tennis: Haverford 6, Muhlenberg 1. One doubles team and one player stayed undefeated for the spring, but the Mules (9-3, 4-2) did not win any other matches and dropped into third place in the Centennial Conference. Juniors Brad Scheller and Matt Fleissig fought off seven match points to score a marathon 9-8 (8-6) win at first doubles, improving to 9-0. Freshman Jeff Kraft (12-0) won in straight sets at fourth singles. Click here for box score.

Golf to Determine Matte Award
Senior Angela Tyson pitched a three-hitter for her 12th career shutout in the first game and sophomore Jaclyn Maser delivered the game-winning hit in the nightcap as the Muhlenberg softball team swept Moravian, 1-0 and 5-3.

The twin win left Moravian with an 8-7 lead in the Matte Award standings for the 2001-02 school year.
Elizabeth Kostelnick
Kostelnick celebrated her 22nd birthday with two hits in the opening game, including one that drove in the lone run.
Muhlenberg can tie for the trophy by outscoring the Greyhounds in Tuesday’s Lehigh Valley Championship in men’s golf.

Moravian (24-6) entered the game ranked 21st in Division III in the latest poll and with 13 wins in its last 14 games. The Greyhounds had not been swept in a doubleheader all season and had beaten the Mules 11 straight times since 1995. Muhlenberg (20-10), which has won 12 of 14, reached 20 wins for the seventh time in team history.

Tyson pitched out of trouble throughout the first game in recording her 40th career win, stranding four runners at third base. The game’s lone run came across in the fourth, when sophomore Nicole Sarno was hit by a pitch, advanced to second on a sacrifice by junior Kelly Berg, and scored on a two-out single by senior Elizabeth Kostelnick.

In the second game, the Mules faced a 3-1 deficit before scoring four times in the fifth. Moravian, which is ranked in the top 20 in Division III in fielding, made errors on the first three batters of the inning, allowing one run to score. Berg brought in the tying run with a groundout, and Maser capped the inning with a two-run double to center.

Sophomore Danielle DeLucia retired the Greyhounds without a hit in the final two innings to earn her 10th win of the season.
