WOMEN’S TENNIS WINS EIGHTH STRAIGHT
Lax Teams Fall to Ranked Foes
Women’s Golf Places Fourth

MEN’S LACROSSE
The Muhlenberg men’s lacrosse team hung tough with Washington through the first 14 minutes, but the eighth-ranked team in Division III took control late in the first quarter and rolled to a 17-6 win.

Muhlenberg (7-7, 0-6) carried the play early, taking nine of the game’s first 11 shots. The Mules were held scoreless, however, and the Shoremen (8-3, 5-1) broke through for two goals in the final minute of the opening period, and then added an extra-man goal 54 seconds into the second to take a 3-0 lead. Washington added five more goals before sophomore Sean Toohill’s third-period goal got Muhlenberg on the scoreboard.

Junior Galen Marsh continued his recent goal-scoring surge with two scores. Marsh has scored seven goals in the last three games after netting only one goal over his first eight games of the season.

WOMEN’S LACROSSE

Junior Courtney Tapkas scored all three of the Mules’ (7-7, 3-6) goals in the first half, but Muhlenberg still faced a seven-goal halftime deficit, the largest margin it had trailed by at the half in a game this season. Junior Shannon Donohue had a goal and an assist.

WOMEN’S GOLF
Senior Kristen Bruschi shot a 97 to help lead the Muhlenberg women’s golf team to a fourth-place finish at the Lehigh Spring Invitational.

The Mules battled the wet and cold Saucon Valley Country Club conditions to finish with a team score of 421. Muhlenberg has now shot a 421 or better in three out of four spring tournaments after entering this season with a previous team-record score of 424.

For the first time in four matches, the Muhlenberg women’s tennis team did not record a shutout but was impressive nonetheless in a win over Washington, 8-1, for its eighth straight win.

The victory keeps the Mules (11-3, 8-1) in contention for their third Centennial Conference championship in the last four years. Muhlenberg needs Swarthmore to be upset by Gettysburg tomorrow, and then the Mules would have to win at Ursinus on Tuesday to share the title. Swarthmore already has clinched at least a share of the CC crown.

Senior Emily Oster teamed with sophomore Pam Kimmelman
