Women’s Lacrosse

Gettysburg and McDaniel kept their perfect CC records intact. The Bullets (11-2, 6-0) won easily against Dickinson, 16-5, and Bryn Mawr, 20-1, before dropping a non-CC game to No. 2 New Jersey, 13-8. The Green Terror won close games against Franklin & Marshall, 11-8, and Haverford, 14-10. Washington (7-4, 4-2) also beat F&M, which entered the week ranked 17th in Division III, 9-8 on a goal with 12 seconds left.

Men’s Lacrosse

The showdown between two of the top five teams in Division III went to Washington, as the third-ranked Shoremen (11-0, 4-0) never trailed in defeating No. 5 Gettysburg, 9-4. The Bullets (5-3 overall) are one of three teams with 2-1 records in the CC. The others are Franklin & Marshall (7-2 overall) and Dickinson (6-3), which knocked off McDaniel, 9-8, and Haverford, 14-7, during the week.

DeLucia Named Pitcher of the Week

Senior Danielle DeLucia has been named pitcher of the week by the Centennial Conference.

Danielle DeLucia DeLucia was honored after pitching back-to-back shutouts, a one-hitter in an 8-0 win against Swarthmore and a two-hitter in a 5-0 win at Washington. She took a no-hitter into the fifth inning and struck out four in each game.

DeLucia has pitched shutouts in her last three starts, allowing just seven hits and no runs in her last 20 innings.

For the season, DeLucia is 4-3 with a 1.61 ERA, with all four of her wins by shutout. She has struck out a team-high 27 batters. She ranks fourth on the Mules with a .324 batting average, third with six RBI and is tied for the team lead with five sacrifice bunts.

DeLucia’s shutout of Washington was the 13th of her career, moving her into second place on Muhlenberg's all-time list. Only one Mule pitcher has finished her career with an ERA lower than her 1.53. With 252 career strikeouts, DeLucia needs four to tie for third all-time. She ranks fifth in Mule history with 37 wins, 49 complete games, 70 appearances and 406 innings pitched.
