Womens Tennis Falls in First Round
Womens Tennis: Muhlenberg was defeated by Washington, 8-1, in the first round of the Centennial Conference playoffs.
Senior Amy Schmidt was responsible for the Mules lone point, winning 6-1, 6-2 at No. 1 singles to remain undefeated for the year. She awaits word on a repeat invitation to the NCAA Division III Championships. Bids are scheduled to be announced on Tuesday.
Muhlenberg finished the season with a record of 8-7.
Womens Golf: Junior Kristen Amore grabbed the early lead at the Centennial Conference Championships at Pilgrims Oak.
Amore shot an 89 to end the first day first in the field of 22 golfers. Three others are within three strokes of her.
Muhlenberg is in second place, 25 strokes behind McDaniel and 19 ahead of the others two complete teams, Dickinson and Franklin & Marshall.
Mens Golf: Muhlenberg remained in fifth place on the second day of the Centennial Conference Championships. The Mules picked up a stroke on Swarthmore but now have Ursinus breathing down their necks, just one stroke behind.
Freshman Bill Snow shot an 81 to move into a tie for fifth place with a 36-hole total of 161.
HOME NOT SWEET FOR THREE TEAMS
James Robinson, one of four seniors remaining from Muhlenbergs first varsity season in 2003, scored three goals in the final game of his career to finish with 76, just one short of the school record.
Sophomore Kyle Farris also missed a scoring record by one goal, ending the season with 28 goals after scoring twice against the Green Terror.
Sophomore Dan Dugan had a phenomenal game on faceoffs, winning 16 of 18 and scooping up nine ground balls.
The Mules finished 6-7 overall, 3-5 in the Centennial Conference.
The Mules (16-20, 8-8) managed only seven hits in the two games, three of them by junior Hilary Marinchak.
Playing in his final home games, senior Matt Tobia drove in five runs to increase his career total to 90. He set a school record for runs produced (runs plus RBI minus home runs) in a season with 72.
Senior Chad Hegstrom, also playing at home for the last time, singled twice in each game.
There was a bug in the timing system used at the Lehigh Games, the final
meet for the Muhlenberg track and field teams before next weekends
Centennial Conference Championships.
Times recorded for distances up to 1,500 meters will be reviewed and adjusted accordingly early in the week.
There was nothing wrong with the right arm of junior Sarah Mitchell, however. She unleashed a javelin throw of 138 feet, 2 inches, breaking her own school record by more than five feet and hitting the NCAA provisional mark for the second week in a row. Entering the weekend, there were only nine throws better in Division III this season.
Although his exact time is not official, junior Lex Mercado also provisionally qualified for NCAAs in the 800 meters. He is the first member of the Mule mens team to qualify for the national meet this outdoor season.
Junior Matthew Sallese qualified for ECACs with a shot put of 48-1¾, slightly more than a foot off the school record. Junior Rachel Drosdick posted an ECAC-qualifying mark in the long jump.
Mitchell, senior Karen Mount (800 meters) and sophomores Dan Steinhart (400 meters) and Joel Haddock (triple jump) all won their events.
