BLEAKLEY, TAPKAS EARN CC HONORS
TENNIS TOP SEEDS BREEZE
Men’s 4x4 Ninth

The Muhlenberg women’s tennis team has the top seed in both the singles draw and doubles draw of the Centennial Conference Individual Championships, and both easily advanced on the first day of competition.

The Mule men went 0-4 on the first day and have just one entry remaining.

Muhlenberg’s top-seeded No. 1 doubles team of junior Amy Schmidt and freshman Ashley Reed won its first match, 8-1, to remain undefeated and advance to the quarterfinals, where it will face Franklin & Marshall’s No. 2 team.

The Mules’ No. 2 team of sophomore Pam Kimmelman and senior Emily Oster gave the second seed a scare before falling, 8-6.

Top-seeded Schmidt and unseeded Kimmelman both won their first-round singles matches. Kimmelman, who knocked out Dickinson’s No. 1 player, 6-0, 6-0, is slated to face the seventh seed, from Johns Hopkins, in the Round of 16. Oster was defeated by the third seed.

Two singles players and two doubles teams from the Muhlenberg men’s squad fell in their first-round matches. Seniors Jeff Kraft and Mitchell Reading were seeded fourth in doubles, but dropped a 9-7 match to a team from Haverford.

Kraft, seeded fourth in the singles draw, received a first-round bye and will open play Saturday against a player from CC champion Johns Hopkins.
