Women’s Tennis Clinches Playoff Berth

The Muhlenberg women’s tennis team won at Haverford, 6-3, to clinch a Centennial Conference playoff berth.

With two matches remaining in the regular season, the Mules (7-5, 7-1) are in third place in the CC. They are scheduled to face second-place Washington (8-1) at home on Saturday. Swarthmore is in first with a perfect 7-0 league mark.

The four-team CC tournament will be held at the site of the top seed next weekend. This is the first year the CC champion will be determined by a tournament.

Freshman Jenn Powell, playing at No. 1 doubles for the first time this spring, teamed up with senior Amy Schmidt for an 8-2 win. Both players went on to capture their singles matches. Schmidt improved to 10-0 with her 6-0, 6-2 victory, becoming the first player in team history to reach double digits in dual-meet singles wins all four years.

Swarthmore won the ensuing faceoff and scored immediately to make the score 7-5. Fletcher set up the next goal by drawing sophomore Kyle Farris’ defender to him, then dishing off to Farris. The Mules’ leading scorer finished with 7:25 on the clock, and Muhlenberg was up by two again.

Farris added an extra-man goal at the 2:16 mark to make the score 8-5. The Garnet scored a meaningless goal in the final 20 seconds.
