TENNIS TEAMS SWEEP HOPKINS
Track Teams Split with Moravian
One School Record Broken, One Tied

The Muhlenberg track and field teams hosted a meet for the second straight week. Although the 12-team Muhlenberg Invitational was a non-scoring meet, the results for Muhlenberg and Moravian were scored as a dual meet for the purposes of the Matte Award, the all-sports trophy for which the two Lehigh Valley rivals compete.

The Muhlenberg men and Moravian women won, leaving the Greyhounds with a two-point lead (7-5) for the 2002-03 school year with men’s and women’s tennis and men’s golf still to be contested.

Senior Will Elson set the Mules’ lone school record of the day, winning the 5,000 meters with a time of 15:02.32. He not only knocked 31 seconds off the school record, but he also won the race by more than a minute.

Junior Rob Uniszkiewicz, in the 1,500 meters, was the only other Muhlenberg runner to win an event.

The women’s 4x100-meter relay team of sophomores Ashlie Hankee and Katie Macomber and freshmen Danielle Seiler and Kate Isselee tied the school record of 51.70. The two sophomores were in the team that set the record last year.

SOFTBALL SPLITS

Junior Amanda Ibey doubled in the winning run in the top of the ninth inning as the Muhlenberg softball team defeated Franklin & Marshall, 4-2, in the first game of a doubleheader. The Diplomats (7-6, 1-3) came back to win the nightcap, 5-2.

Ibey singled and scored on an error to give the Mules (4-13, 3-1) a 1-0 lead in the third inning. In the sixth, senior Kelly Berg tripled and scored the second run on a suicide squeeze by junior Jackie Maser.

Freshman Kristina Cartolano took a one-hit shutout into the bottom of the seventh, but F&M scored two runs on four hits to send the game into extra innings. Junior Becki Toth led off the ninth by reaching on an error and was sacrificed to second. Ibey then doubled her in and came around to score when the throw from left field rolled out of play.

F&M hit a three-run homer in the first inning of Game 2. A triple by senior Meghan Woods was the key hit as the Mules scored twice in the second inning, but they could not get any closer.
