LOESCH FINISHES SIXTH AT NCAAs
ROTHWELL PROVISIONALLY QUALIFIES FOR NCAAs

Junior Steve Rothwell joined classmate Lex Mercado and senior Karen Mount as Muhlenberg indoor track and field athletes playing the waiting game.

Competing at the ECAC Championships at Ursinus, Rothwell placed second in the 800 meters with an NCAA-provisional qualifying time. He’ll have to wait until Monday to see if that time is good enough to send him to the NCAA Division III Championships next weekend at St. Olaf in Northfield, Minnesota.

Rothwell’s time of 1:54.62 was a personal best and 1.06 seconds off the school record. He also surpassed Mercado’s best 800 time to move into second on the Muhlenberg performance list. The two have flipped spots in the event three times this season.

Mount, holder of NCAA-provisional qualifying times in the mile and 800, finished fourth at the ECACs in the 800. Mercado, with an 800 provisional time, finished 10th in that event at the ECACs.

Junior Jacquelyn Inverso finished in eighth place in the triple jump to help the women take 18th place overall, while the men were 15th.

Junior Matt Loesch had a rough second day at the NCAA Division III Championships, but still came away with sixth place at 197 pounds – the second-best finish ever by a Mule wrestler.

Loesch got a taste of some of the elite of Division III as he faced off against the first, third and fifth seeds in the tournament. He lost in the quarterfinals to the eventual champion from Delaware Valley. In the consolation bracket he fell to the top ranked 197-pound wrestler in Division III from Wartburg.

Loesch, the first Mule wrestler to receive All-America honors twice, had to retire from the fifth-place match due to an injury.

“Hopefully I can make it three next year,” remarked Loesch.

Loesch finished the season 18-5. His 73 wins are eighth most all-time at Muhlenberg.
