Baseball Drops Pitchers’ Duel; Women’s Golf Ninth

• Baseball: Ursinus 4, Muhlenberg 1. Pitching dominated on a windy day at Ursinus, and in a game that featured 18 strikeouts and no extra-base hits, it was the Bears who came out on top.

Junior Gregg Burkhart tossed a complete game, allowing eight hits and striking out eight in eight innings. His undoing was a third-inning wild pitch that scored one run and set up two more.

The Mules’ lone run came in the fourth, when freshman Mike Hart led off with a single and eventually came around on a two-out single by junior Aaron Regensburg. Hart had two of Muhlenberg’s four hits and also made a diving catch on a foul popup.

• Women’s Golf: Muhlenberg finished ninth with a team score of 559 at its second tournament, the Gettysburg Spring Invitational. Of the Mules’ top five in their opener, only junior Kristen Bruschi competed in this one. She was 10th among Division III golfers, and 21st overall, with a 113.

• Softball cancelled: Muhlenberg’s doubleheader at The College of New Jersey, rained out once on April 15, was cancelled due to wet grounds.

Junior Christa Carlstrand tied a career high with five goals, scoring all of them in a 7-1 run wrapped around halftime, as the Muhlenberg women’s lacrosse team posted its first win in April, defeating Swarthmore, 15-10.

The Mules (4-6, 2-4), playing for the first time in nine days, held a 7-4 lead with eight minutes to go in the first half, but the Garnet (7-4, 2-3) scored the next three goals to tie the game.
Shannon Donohue
Donohue tied a career high with six points on four goals and two assists. She is tied for second on the team with 24 points this season.
Carlstrand’s unassisted goal with 25 seconds to play in the half gave Muhlenberg the lead for good.

The Mules scored three goals in the first three minutes of the second half – two by Carlstrand and one by sophomore Shannon Donohue – to extend their lead to 11-7. Swarthmore closed the margin to three with 22:39 left, but Donohue controlled the ensuing draw and fed Carlstrand for a goal just 12 seconds later. Carlstrand’s fifth goal and sophomore Jessica Geiger’s second free-position goal of the game gave Muhlenberg a commanding 14-8 lead with 16 minutes to play.

The Garnet outshot the Mules, 27-25, but junior Diana Bleakley made 11 saves in goal.

Sophomore Steph Light scored her first goal of the season and added five draw controls and five ground balls.
