Matthew Long

Muhlenberg junior shortstop Matthew Long has been selected to the All-Centennial Conference second team.

Long, the only Mule named to the squad, was one of only five CC players to hit .400 in 2004, finishing with a .402 batting average. He also led Muhlenberg in hits (43), doubles (nine), RBI (27), slugging percentage (.542) and on-base percentage (.489), ranking third in the CC in the latter category.

It was the second All-CC nod for Long, who received honorable mention last year. He will begin his senior year tied for fourth on the Mules’ all-time doubles list with 24 and seven hits away from the 100-hit milestone.

Three Muhlenberg tennis players have been named to the All-Centennial Conference first team.

Senior Gena Ross and sophomore Amy Schmidt of the CC-champion women’s team were selected as singles players and as a doubles team. On the men’s side, junior Jeff Kraft was chosen for singles.

Ross (above right) became one of nine players to be named to the All-CC first team three times. She was 6-3 overall, 5-2 in the CC, and earned the second seed for the CC Championships. Ranked 14th for singles in the Atlantic South Region, Ross finished her career with a singles record of 45-15.

Schmidt, the only non-senior on the all-star team, was a perfect 10-0 in the CC, playing three matches at No. 1 and seven at No. 2. She set a school record with 14 overall singles wins and reached the CC final. Also a member of the women’s soccer team, Schmidt became the first athlete in school history to play on two CC championship teams in the same school year.

Together, Ross and Schmidt reached the CC final and compiled a 10-3 mark during the year. They are ranked fifth in the Atlantic South Region.

Kraft (below right) is the third player in team history to earn All-CC honors. He went 7-1 in CC matches in 2004 to earn the top seed in the CC Tournament. Kraft was 12-4 overall for the year and has a three-year career record of 71-37.
