ROUGH DAY ON THE DIAMOND
TRACK TEAMS BREAK FOUR RECORDS

Freshmen Ashlie Hankee and Katie Macomber each contributed to two of the four school records broken by the Muhlenberg track and field teams at the Lafayette Invitational, a non-scoring meet that involved mostly athletes from Divisions I and II.

Hankee set an individual record (16.51 seconds) in the 100-meter high hurdles and ran on the 4x100-meter relay team (along with classmates Carolyn Schoen, Amy Ratner and Macomber) that lowered its school record from 52.40 to 52.25.

Macomber was also part of the 4x400 team that broke a school record set in 1989 with a time of 4:15.37. Other members were sophomores Diana Garretto and Lesley Bruno and freshman Samantha Sachleben.

Individually, Sachleben qualified for the ECAC Championships with a 2:24.44 in the 800. Senior Katie Garrett placed second in the steeplechase.

Junior Brendan Gallagher set a school record in the men’s 3,000 meters (8:52.88). He finished fourth in the race, three places ahead of sophomore Rob Uniszkiewicz.

Senior Jim Hayes had an excellent series in the javelin, recording four throws of more than 175 feet. His best mark, 178-5, was good for sixth place.

• Lacrosse: Western Maryland 18, Muhlenberg 8. Freshman Christa Carlstrand scored a career-high five goals, but the Mules (3-11, 1-7) dropped their final home game of the season. Click here for box score.

• Women’s Golf: Muhlenberg finished third at Friday’s Gettysburg Invitational. Senior Kathryn Baker tied for 17th with a 118.

• Men’s Tennis: The scheduled match at Johns Hopkins was postponed to Wednesday, April 24, at 3:30.

• Softball: Western Maryland 3, Muhlenberg 1; Western Maryland 3, Muhlenberg 2. The matchup between the defending Centennial Conference regular-season champion and and the defending tournament champion, both of which ranked among the national leaders in ERA, resulted in two close, low-scoring games.

Western Maryland (21-5, 12-0) remained alone in first place in the CC with the sweep. Muhlenberg (20-12, 10-4) dropped to fourth place when Gettysburg and Ursinus split.

In the second game, the Mules rallied from a 2-0 deficit to tie the game in the bottom of the sixth on a two-out RBI triple by junior Kelly Berg. The Green Terror scored the winning run in the top of the seventh on a bases-loaded walk. Muhlenberg hit three straight singles in the bottom of the seventh to load the bases with two out, but could not push the tying run across.

Sophomore Danielle DeLucia fanned seven batters in the nightcap. Sophomore Jaclyn Maser tripled in each game.

• Baseball: Franklin & Marshall 5, Muhlenberg 1; Franklin & Marshall 6, Muhlenberg 5. A last-gasp rally fell just short as Muhlenberg suffered back-to-back losses for the first time in more than a month and was swept in a doubleheader for the first time all season.

The two losses assured the Mules (19-14, 10-6) of either the third or fourth seed in the CC playoffs, meaning they will play an elimination game on Friday, May 3.

Muhlenberg trailed 6-1 going into the bottom of the sixth in the second game, its lone run coming on junior Justin Graf’s third home run of the season. The Mules scored once in the sixth to close to within 6-2. In the seventh, a two-run triple by senior Joshua Carter and an RBI single by junior Ben Carr made it 6-5. Senior Mike Morris then reached safely on a bunt to put the potential tying and winning runs on base with nobody out. But Franklin & Marshall (25-8, 14-2), which has won nine in a row, got out of the jam with a double play and a groundout.

Carter went 3-for-3 in the second game, and junior Justin Rubenstein had a pair of hits in each game.
