Drosdick Breaks School Record in Heptathlon
Track Results Half In
Golf in Sixth; Women’s Lacrosse Falls at Home

Track & Field: The majority of the Muhlenberg track and field teams competed at Lafayette’s Leopard Invitational. Those results were not available as of 8:30 p.m. on Saturday night. They will be posted as soon as they become available.

Four Mules went to Kutztown to compete in a multi-event meet, and the most Rachel
Drosdick successful was freshman Rachel Drosdick (left), who broke the school record in the heptathlon. She scored 3,296 points in the two-day event, edging past the previous mark by three points.

Drosdick had her highest point total (635) in the first event, the 100-meter hurdles, running an ECAC-qualifying time of 16.66 seconds. She placed 10th in a field of 15 that included only six Division III athletes. Only one Division III competitor placed ahead of her.

Of the three Muhlenberg men to start the decathlon, two withdrew after the first day due to injury. Junior Harry Kegelman completed the event and scored a career-best 4,605 points.

The Mules (4-7, 2-5) surrendered four goals in the first 6:11, but got back to within one on the first of Christa Carlstrand’s three goals, with 2:11 left in the first half. The Green Terror (10-2, 6-1) responded by scoring two goals in an 18-second span in the final two minutes, then opened the second half with a 6-1 spurt to take a 14-6 lead.

Muhlenberg, whose previous three home matches this season were indoors, extended its homecourt winning streak to 24. The Mules also reached double digits in victories for the fourth-straight season; prior to 2001 that had been accomplished only twice.

The Shorewomen (6-8, 3-5) won only with their No. 1 singles player (ranked sixth in the region) and their No. 1 doubles team (fourth in the region and the two-time defending CC champion). At second singles, sophomore Amy Schmidt won a tight battle between two regionally ranked players, capturing the third-set supertiebreaker, 11-9, against the defending CC runner-up.

Except for senior Mackenzie Parke’s come-from-behind three-set win at third singles, the Mules won the remainder of the matches handily. Freshman Pam Kimmelman dropped only two games in her doubles and singles matches, posting her second 6-0, 6-0 victory of the season, to remain undefeated in CC play this spring.
