TWO MULES STATISTICALLY IN TOP 10

Two Muhlenberg athletes are in the top 10 in the NCAA’s weekly ranking of Division III statistical leaders.

Freshman Courtney Tapkas of the women’s lacrosse team is fourth in goals per game (4.87) and tied for ninth in points per game (5.60). Senior Justin Graf of the baseball team stands third in stolen bases per game (1.23).

Also showing up among the lacrosse leaders is senior Lynsey Caldwell, who is tied for 12th in assists per game (2.40).

For the baseball team, senior Kevin Komeshok is tied for 18th with five saves and junior Gregg Burkhart ranks 20th in strikeouts per nine innings (10.9)

Track Championships Begin Tomorrow

The Muhlenberg men’s track and field team will take its third crack at the Haverford dynasty at the Centennial Conference Outdoor Championships, which begin tomorrow and run through Sunday at Gettysburg.

The Mule women also will compete at the meet, looking to improve on their seventh-place finish of a year ago.

(1999 indoor track), but Muhlenberg has been nipping at their heels all this year. In cross country, the Mules finished second to Haverford by 11 points, and in indoor track, the margin was 31 points, although Muhlenberg was within striking distance until the final two events.

An analysis of the top performances so far this season points to another potential close race between the Fords and Mules. Muhlenberg tied for third place last year.

The Mules will rely heavily on senior Will Elson, who was named Most Outstanding Performer at the CC Indoor Championships after winning the 800 meters and the 1,500 meters. He has the top recorded times in the CC in both those events during the outdoor season. Elson, who did not compete last year, won the 800 in meet-record time at the 2001 outdoor championships.

In addition to Elson, other Mules who are at the top of the CC performance lists are sophomores John Brodowski (high jump and decathlon) and Will Corbin (javelin), junior Frank Santini (shot put) and freshman Brian Campfield (discus).

The Muhlenberg women had a solid fifth-place finish at the CC Indoor Championships. Medal hopefuls include sophomore Meghan Douglas-Snyder, who won the indoor pole vault each of the last two years; freshman Danielle Seiler, who has the top time in the 400-meter hurdles; and sophomore Kristin Boydston, who has the second-best shot put.
