Stewart Named to All-Region Team

Sophomore Jeff Stewart of the Muhlenberg men’s basketball team was named to the All-Middle Atlantic Region third team by D3hoops.com.

Stewart led the Mules in scoring (19.4 points per game), rebounding (10.1 rebounds per game), field-goal percentage (.529), blocked shots (56) and Jeff
Stewart steals (32). He led the Centennial Conference in rebounding and blocked shots and finished third in scoring.

Stewart set a CC record with 16 double-doubles and scored in double figures in every game but one. He had 15 games of 20 or more points and averaged 21.5 points and 10.7 rebounds in 10 games against the five CC playoff teams.

Although he was a second-team selection on the All-CC team, Stewart was one of only two CC players named to the D3hoops.com all-region squad.

Swarthmore Ends Women’s Tennis Streak

The Swarthmore women’s tennis team won two of three doubles matches and held on to defeat Muhlenberg, 5-4, snapping the Mules’ Centennial Conference winning streak at 19.

Muhlenberg had last dropped a CC match almost two years ago to the day, with a 5-4 loss at Washington on March 22, 2003. Included in the streak was a 5-4 win against Swarthmore last year that broke the Garnet’s run of 15 consecutive CC victories.

For the second time in four days, the Mules lost by the narrowest of margins to a nationally ranked foe. Swarthmore is ranked 25th in Division III and sixth in the Atlantic South Region.

Muhlenberg (3-3, 1-1), which is unranked because it did not play a fall season, had great success against the Garnet’s regionally ranked players at the top of the lineup. At No. 1 doubles, junior Amy Schmidt and freshman Ashley Reed handed the fifth-ranked doubles team in the region an 8-3 loss for their second straight victory against a regionally ranked duo.

Schmidt went on to win 6-1, 6-2 at first singles against a Garnet player ranked 15th in the region. Although it was the first match this year in which Schmidt did not win at least one set 6-0, it did extend her winning streak in spring dual matches to 16.

Reed and sophomore Kelly Fraser also won their singles matches.
