MULE TEAMS GOING NORTH, SOUTH, WEST

Northfield, Minn., (today’s low temperature 6° F) and Canton, N.Y., (today’s low temperature 1° F) are not normally popular
Lacrosse Games Postponed

The scheduled season-opening games for both Muhlenberg lacrosse teams were postponed.

The men’s game at DeSales is rescheduled for Thursday, March 3, with the site changed to Muhlenberg. Game time is 4:00.

The women’s game at Cedar Crest is off until further notice.

Spring Break destinations, but a handful of Muhlenberg athletes are headed there.

The Mule softball and baseball teams will take the more traditional approach and travel to warm-weather sites next week. Softball returns to the Rebel Spring Games in Kissimmee, Fla., while baseball goes west for the first time, playing eight games in Chandler, Ariz. Check out the softball and baseball season previews.

WRESTLING
NCAA
wrestling logo Sophomore Matt Loesch will be Muhlenberg’s lone representative at the NCAA Division III Wrestling Championships, hosted by St. Olaf College. Loesch earned his second consecutive national bid by winning the 197-pound weight class at the Centennial Conference Championships.

Last year, Loesch went 1-2 at the national meet, upsetting the fourth seed and coming within one win of earning All-America status. He enters this year’s competition with a 19-bout winning streak and a season record of 27-3. Loesch has rarely been challenged during the streak, with his wins coming on six pins, five decisions (all by at least four points), two technical falls, two major decisions, one disqualification and three forfeits.

Two of the three wrestlers who have defeated Loesch this season are in the field, as is a wrestler Loesch has beaten twice this year.

INDOOR TRACK
ECAC logo A contingent of 18 athletes – the most ever for Muhlenberg since the ECAC started having qualifying standards in the relays – will travel to St. Lawrence University for the ECAC Championships.

Among the Mules scheduled to compete is senior John Brodowski, who will attempt to win the ECAC pentathlon for the second time in his career. Including Brodowski, Muhlenberg has athletes entered in nine women’s events and six men’s events.
