SOFTBALL DROPS TWI-NIGHT DOUBLEHEADER TO URSINUS

The Muhlenberg softball team was swept by Ursinus in a Centennial Conference doubleheader that started at 6:30 and ended after 11:00. The Bears (17-7, 7-3) won the first game, 4-2, and the second, 8-6 in eight innings.

In spite of the losses, the Mules (9-18, 8-6) are still in good position for the CC playoffs. They can clich a berth with a sweep of Dickinson on Thursday, and even a split would make it difficult for another team to slide into fourth place.

Muhlenberg rallied from a four-run deficit to force extra innings in the nightcap. Down 6-2 with six outs remaining, the Mules got an RBI triple from senior Meghan Woods in the sixth, then tied the score with three in the seventh. Junior Becki Toth brought in the first run with her second double of the game, and junior Danielle DeLucia delivered a two-run double.

Muhlenberg had the winning run on third with one out in the seventh, but failed to drive it in, and Ursinus scored twice in the eighth.

Junior Jackie Maser hit her second home run of the season in the first inning of Game 2.

Toth had two hits, including a triple, in the opener, and will enter Thursday’s regular-season finale with 99 career hits.

Men’s Tennis Closes Out Regular Season with Win at Moravian

The Muhlenberg men’s tennis team closed out its dual-match season with a 5-2 win indoors at Moravian.

The Mules finished the spring with a record of 9-2 for an .818 winning percentage – the best since the 1983 team was 8-1 (.889). This also marked the first time in team history that Muhlenberg won at least nine matches in four consecutive years. The Mules were 37-17 the last four years, second in terms of wins to the 42-9 record posted from 1939 to 1942.

Muhlenberg swept the doubles and won at the lower four singles positions. Senior Matthew Fleissig, sophomore Mitchell Reading and freshman Adam Nodiff, playing No. 4 through No. 6, lost a combined two games.

Nodiff and classmate Brad Gutwillig won their seventh straight match together at No. 3 doubles to finish with a 9-2 record. Senior Cameron Parke, a winner at both doubles and singles, extended his singles winning streak to eight and improved his spring record to 10-1. Fleissig and Reading both had 9-2 singles records.
