TRACK STARS AT HOME MEET
SOFTBALL SPLITS; TAPKAS NETS 100TH GOAL; MEN’S TENNIS LOSES

• Softball: Senior Danielle DeLucia threw a four-hit shutout to lead the Muhlenberg softball team to a 1-0 win in the first game of a doubleheader against Franklin & Marshall at Patriots Park. The Diplomats came from behind to win game two, 5-4.

Senior Nicole Sarno slapped an infield hit and scored the game’s only run on a passed ball in the first.

DeLucia made the run stand up by giving up just two hits in the first six innings and striking out the final hitter with the potential winning run on second base in the seventh to complete her 11th career shutout.

The Mules (9-7, 2-4) jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first inning of the second game on a two-run double by sophomore Missy DeFrain, followed by a one-run triple from senior Jackie Maser.

The teams traded runs in the fifth before the Diplomats (6-8, 3-3) scored three in the sixth and one in the seventh to win.

• Women’s Lacrosse: Sophomore Courtney Tapkas scored three goals, the last of which made her the fifth women’s lacrosse player in Muhlenberg history to score 100 goals, but the Mules lost, 13-9 at Haverford.

Tapkas scored her team’s first three goals to give Muhlenberg (3-5, 1-3) a 3-1 lead. The Mules led, 6-3, just after halftime, but the Fords (3-4, 1-2) scored the next eight goals.

Junior Christa Carlstrand notched two goals and three assists for the Mules, and freshman Katie Reimann scored a hat trick.

For the second straight match, the Mules took the doubles point, but only No. 1 junior Jeff Kraft and No. 4 sophomore Brad Gutwillig won their singles matches. Muhlenberg dropped two other singles matches in third sets.

The Muhlenberg track and field teams hosted the Muhlenberg Invitational at Scotty Wood Stadium and, despite the cold weather, came up with several impressive performances.

John

Brodowski’s high jump of 6-6 was less than three inches short of the school record. He qualified for ECACs in both the high and long jumps.

Danielle Seiler broke the school record she set last week as she won women’s 400 meters. In the 400 hurdles, she beat the rest of field by more than two seconds. Seiler also ran on the Mules’ ECAC-qualifying 4x100 relay team.

Sophomore Karen Mount placed third and set a new ’Berg steeplechase record in her second time running the event.

Freshman Sarah Mitchell placed second in the javelin, throwing almost nine feet farther than in her debut last week. Junior Meghan Douglas-Snyder finished third in the pole vault.

On the men’s side, junior John Brodowski placed third in the high jump. He jumped the same height as the winner, but took more jumps to do so. He also placed third in the long jump and fifth in the javelin, two spots behind senior teammate Randy Holak

Senior Frank Santini was the runner-up in the shot put for the second straight week, heading three Mules in the top six of an event with 35 competitors. Freshman Tim Seeley finished fourth in the men’s 5,000 meters.
