game at McDaniel was postponed and rescheduled for Sunday, May 1 at 1:00.
Lax Teams Fall to Ranked Foes|
Womens Golf Places Fourth
Muhlenberg (7-7, 0-6) carried the play early, taking nine of the games 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 Toohills 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.
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.
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 womens 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
Junior Amy Schmidts 6-2, 6-4 win at No. 1 singles tied two school records. It gave her a record-tying 39 singles wins in her career and 14 this season. Schmidt and freshman Ashley Reed were challenged at first doubles by Washingtons 14th-ranked doubles team, before prevailing, 8-5.
Junior Stacy Lipschutz improved her singles record to 8-6 with a 6-3, 6-0 triumph at fifth singles.
The two singles matches that Muhlenberg (5-6, 2-5) won were in three sets. Junior Brad Gutwillig claimed a victory, 6-1, 4-6, 6-3 at No. 2 singles and senior Mitchell Reading won at third singles, 2-6, 6-3, 6-2.
