YEAR IN REVIEW
The 2003-04 year in Muhlenberg athletics won’t be completely over until this weekend, but here is a look back at the year by the Athletic Department’s resident poet.

FINAL GRADE

by Lindsay Weiss, A.T.C.

The year’s now over
Graduation is past
To think back through the fall
How the seasons went fast

It’s been quite a year
Let’s look back and see
How these Muhlenberg teams
Found way for victory

football champs Cross country was led
By two all-regions from each team
Maybe it was the muddy practices
That helped provide the steam

Best start since 1990
Eight wins straight, ranked seventh-high
Field hockey did play tough
Leaving their opponents to cry

They are the winningest class
In ’Berg football history
Seniors helped to capture
A third straight conference victory

With nine all-conference first-teamers
And a player of the year
Football succeeded
Without any fear

Our soccer teams added
Two more conference titles
Wow ... three of those by December
’Berg athletes nowhere near idle

women's soccer champs The women reached the third round
Of NCAAs to end
Six seniors to leave
Their positions left to mend

Ranked as high as 16th
Beat Johns Hopkins twice
Defense was the key
For our men’s soccer heist

Our volleyball team was young
Still set school record for aces
Had a huge win over F&M
Bringing smiles to their faces

Women’s basketball set records
For points and steals and threes
Their run-and-gun offense
And pressure defense were the keys

men's soccer champs Number one in team scoring
90.8 points per game
A little Division III school
Putting D1 and 2 to shame

Men’s basketball ended strong
Winning last two of three
Leadership from its juniors
A frosh Mule All-CC

Wrestling dug deep
To keep their spirits high
Two conference champions
Gave nationals a try

Our cheerleading team placed eighth
In Florida, 2003
More than leaders of spirit
With their brand new coach, Misty

Women’s tennis shut out opponents
Seven to be exact
Went 10-0 in the conference
Just go and try to beat that

women's tennis champs New Kern Field courts
Added to a hot start
Defeating the ’Hounds and Terror
Men’s tennis made their mark

Record-tying four-game win streak
Set the tone for promise
However several close losses
Kept men’s lacrosse honest

Began and ended with impressive wins
Women’s lacrosse held strong
Won a game at Disney
And fought hard all season long

Softball made the playoffs
Fourth year in a row
With every right to shine
And every moment to grow

Sunk Moravian in home opener
Just one of baseball’s reasons
Coach Mac got his 100th win
Eight wins into the season

men's golf champs Fifth ’Berg championship
Men’s golf achieved when done
Only one did walk away
To brag of a hole-in-one

Shot their best team score ever
On a cold and windy day.
Women’s golf third in the conference
Top four went to play

Women’s track scored more points
Competing indoors than ever
Outdoors equally successful
The girls they gave up never

Men’s track helped to play a part
In clinching the Matte Award
One on his way to nationals
Higher heights he’s looking toward

Now that the seasons are almost over
We’ll rest for just a bit
To sit and think how fun it was
Muhlenberg’s new greatest hits

Looking forward to next year
Our athlete’s desires won’t fade
To make it better than the last
We’ll improve our final grade.
