WOMEN’S LACROSSE DROPS OPENER TO F&M

The Muhlenberg women’s lacrosse team, with its lone scrimmage and first scheduled game both wiped out by weather, saw its first outside competition in the form of 14th-ranked Franklin & Marshall.

The Diplomats, who had already played one game, jumped out to a 7-1 lead and went on defeat the Mules, 16-7.

Senior Christa Carlstrand scored on all four of her shots for her sixth career hat trick. She was involved in Muhlenberg’s first five goals, assisting on the second.

Junior Steph Light recorded an assist, five draw controls and six ground balls.

For the first time in her 30-game career, junior Courtney Tapkas failed to score a goal.

Baseball Splits Opening Twinbill

After having its scheduled opener in Arizona rained out, the Muhlenberg baseball team played its first games against Beloit Sunday night, splitting a doubleheader. The Mules took the first game, 9-7, but dropped the nightcap, 8-7 in nine innings.

Muhlenberg scored in each of the first five innings of Game 1 to take a 9-3 lead. Senior Matthew Long doubled in a run in the first, singled and scored in the fourth and drove in another run with a single in the fifth. Sophomore Mike Hart laced a two-run single in the second.

Senior Aaron Regensburg allowed just one earned run and three hits over the first five innings, but began to tire in the sixth. After the Mule bullpen allowed the Bucs to close to within two runs, senior Pete Lankarge came in to put out the fire, striking out the No. 5 hitter with the potential tying runs in scoring position.

Lankarge retired the side in the seventh to save Regensburg’s 12th career win.

Muhlenberg again led a sizable lead slip away in the second game, as Beloit scored four times in the bottom of the sixth to tie the score at 7-7. Lankarge worked out of a bases-loaded, one-out jam in the eighth, but a single, sacrifice, balk and wild pitch brought home the winning run in the bottom of the ninth.

Senior Gregg Burkhart struck out eight in five innings in Game 2.

Freshman Joe Carlo doubled in each of his first two career games, while Long, senior C.J. Kessler and junior Chad Hegstrom had three hits apiece in the twinbill.
