The Muhlenberg women’s tennis doubles team of senior Gena Ross and sophomore Amy Schmidt advanced to the championship match of the Centennial Conference Individual Championships.

The Mule duo will face the two-time defending champion team of Ne’ko Browder and Shoko Nakamura from Washington in the final, which is scheduled for Sunday morning. The two doubles teams met last Saturday, with the Shorewomen scoring a decisive 8-2 victory. Browder and Nakamura are ranked fourth in the Atlantic South Region, one spot ahead of Ross and Schmidt.

Ross and Schmidt reached the final with comfortable victories of 8-3 against Haverford and Dickinson and 8-4 against the fourth-seeded Gettysburg duo. The Washington team knocked off the Mules’ Mackenzie Parke and Pam Kimmelman in the quarters, then needed a tiebreaker to get past Swarthmore’s third-seeded pair.

Parke and Kimmelman won two matches to get to the quarterfinals. Parke finished her outstanding career with a record of 95-59.

Schmidt also will compete in the single semifinals on Sunday. She advanced to the “final four” by dominating third-seeded Laura Chaddock of Haverford, 6-0, 6-0. Schmidt, who is seeded eighth, is slated to face No. 5 Melissa Sviatko of Dickinson in the semis. The two have never met.

Freshman Breaks School Record
Sarah Mitchell
Freshman Sarah Mitchell (above) provisionally qualified for the NCAA Division III Championships to lead the Muhlenberg track and field teams at the Lions’s Invitational, hosted by The College of New Jersey.

Mitchell’s third-place javelin throw of 128 feet, six inches broke the school record by 10 inches.

A Mule also took third in the men’s javelin. Senior Randy Holak launched a throw of 185 feet, 11 inches, the longest of his career. He has recorded an ECAC-qualifying throw in every meet this season.

Sophomore Danielle Seiler placed third in the 400-meter hurdles in 1:05.50, her fastest time of the year and less than half off her own school record.

Senior Matt Frye qualified for the ECAC Championships in the pole vault, as did junior Kristin Boydston in the discus.

The Muhlenberg men’s golf team shot a 305 in the middle round of the Centennial Conference Championships and will take the lead into Sunday’s third and final round.

The Mules have a two-day team score of 615, three strokes ahead of defending champion Franklin & Marshall. Last year, the two teams were tied for first after two rounds, but the Diplomats shot a 308 while Muhlenberg faltered to win by 12 strokes.

The 305 is the lowest one-round score ever posted by the Mules at the CC Championships.

Four ’Berg players shot in the 70s. Sophomore Brian Farrelly matched the lowest score of the round (74) and is in second place after 36 holes with a 151. Just one stroke behind him are senior Matt Katz and junior Matthew Schoenfeld. Senior Jesse Neider, last year’s second-place finisher, rebounded from a first-round 84 to shoot a 76.
