Muhlenberg dropped only four games in the eight matches it won, with three players, senior No. 1 Amy Schmidt, freshman No. 3 Carly Rotfeld and junior No. 6 Kelly Fraser, winning 6-0, 6-0.

Two other singles players, junior Pam Kimmelman (No. 2) and freshman Jenn Powell (No. 4), won 6-0, 6-1.

Rotfeld’s shutout was the first of her career, while Fraser’s was her third and was the polar opposite of her last match, a three-set marathon against Washington.

Schmidt, competing for the last time at home, also won 8-0 with Powell at first doubles – the fourth time in her career that she won all 20 doubles and singles games in a match. She remained undefeated (12-0) in singles play and finished with a career record of 37-1 in CC regular-season dual matches.

Senior Stacy Lipschutz and sophomore Jacquelyn Magner teamed up for an 8-0 shutout at No. 3 doubles.

Schmidt and Lipschutz, the Mules’ two seniors, led the team to a 35-5 CC dual-meet record the last four years.
