Men’s Tennis Falls in Finale

A weekly look at what’s going on in the Centennial Conference:

Gettysburg began the week undefeated in the CC, but split with Franklin & Marshall and got swept by Ursinus to fall into second place. Ursinus hosts Muhlenberg on Tuesday in a critical doubleheader ... Other key twinbills Tuesday are Franklin & Marshall at Dickinson and Gettysburg at McDaniel.
Ursinus 9-1 22-6-1
Gettysburg 9-3 17-8
McDaniel 7-3 17-8
F & M 8-6 11-11
Dickinson 5-5 10-13
Washington 3-11 8-19-1
Swarthmore 2-10 6-19
Haverford 1-9 9-18


Johns Hopkins (30-0, 15-0) rolled on, clinching a playoff berth with sweeps of McDaniel, Haverford and Swarthmore ... Franklin & Marshall (20-13, 11-4) took sole possession of second place with a sweep of McDaniel ... Dickinson (12-15-1, 9-5-1), Ursinus (14-11-2, 9-6) and McDaniel (15-9, 9-7) are all bunched together in the standings, and Haverford (18-9, 7-8) still has a mathematical shot at the playoffs.

Women’s Lacrosse

Gettysburg (13-2, 8-0) clinched the top seed for the CC playoffs with an 18-11 win against Haverford ... Franklin & Marshall scored a big 12-8 win against Ursinus; the two teams are currently tied for fourth place, behind McDaniel and Washington.

Men’s Lacrosse

Washington rallied from a three-goal deficit to remain undefeated (12-0, 5-0) with a 10-8 win against Franklin & Marshall ... Dickinson moved to 4-1 in the CC with a 2-0 week, including a 19-7 victory against the Mules’ next opponent, Swarthmore.

Freshman Nicole Washburn has become the second member of the Muhlenberg softball team in as many weeks to be named Centennial
Nicole Washburn
Washburn shut down the McDaniel offense, which entered last week averaging a CC-best 5.61 runs per game.
Conference pitcher of the week.

Washburn pitched her first career shutout, a four-hitter, to lead Muhlenberg to a 1-0 win that completed a doubleheader sweep of McDaniel on Saturday.

After getting out of a first-inning jam with two runners on via a leadoff double and a walk, Washburn allowed only one more runner to reach second base and did not walk a batter. She recorded two strikeouts.

With a 5-2 record, Washburn is tied for the team lead in wins. She has a 3.61 ERA with 12 strikeouts and has completed three of her four starts.

Her selection comes one week after senior Danielle DeLucia received-pitcher-of-the-week honors.


The Muhlenberg men’s tennis team lost its final match of the year to Haverford, 6-1.

Junior Jeff Kraft secured the only point for the Mules (5-7, 2-6) with a win at No. 1 singles. He dropped the first set and fought off several match points before taking the second set in a tiebreaker and the third in a supertiebreaker.

The Mules will compete at the Centennial Conference Individual Championships this weekend.
