Today’s scheduled men’s tennis match at Stevens Tech was cancelled.

SCHMIDT REACHES CENTURY MARK
STRONG START, BUT LOSS, FOR MEN’S LACROSSE

The Muhlenberg men’s lacrosse team came out smoking in its home game against Haverford, but it was the Fords who sizzled at the end in their 11-8 win.

The Mules (3-4, 0-2) did not allow the Fords (7-3, 3-0) to possess the ball in their offensive zone for the first eight minutes of the game. Muhlenberg took the first 10 shots and scored the first three goals.

Haverford finally broke into the scoring column with an extra-man goal with 1:14 left in the first quarter, kicking off a 7-0 run in which the Mules went scoreless for nearly two full periods.

Muhlenberg closed to within two goals twice, 7-5 in the third quarter and 9-7 in the fourth, but the Fords held on for the win.

Sophomore Kyle Farris recorded his fifth hat trick in a row, and classmate Mickey Norton also scored three goals.

Schmidt also broke the school record with her 83rd career combined win in dual matches.
Amy Schmidt
Schmidt has a career record of 100-22: 55-6 in singles and 45-16 in doubles.
She tied the record by winning at first doubles, 8-5, along with freshman Carly Rotfeld. Schmidt went on to pick up number 100 easily by winning first singles, 6-1, 6-0. Nine of Schmidt’s 100 career wins have come against the Diplomats.

“Any milestone is great to reach, and this one is very rewarding because I’ve worked so hard the last three-and-a-half years,” said Schmidt. “It’s great that it could happen at this match because we always have a tough match with Franklin & Marshall. This was an important win.”

Muhlenberg (4-4, 4-0) came into the match ranked 11th in the region, while Franklin & Marshall (6-3, 2-2) is 12th. It was the Mules’ fourth consecutive victory in the series. They remain one of three undefeated teams in Centennial Conference play.

Schmidt, ranked third in the Atlantic South Region, already holds the school record for career singles wins in dual matches (46) and is third with 37 career victories in doubles.

Rotfeld improved to 8-0 combined in conference action by winning third singles in straight sets. Freshman Jenn Powell also won in straight sets at fourth singles.

Sophomore Jacquelyn Magner teamed up with senior Stacy Lipschutz to squeeze out an 8-5 win at third doubles. Junior Kelly Fraser came back from a 5-0 deficit to win a third-set supertiebreaker at No. 6 singles. (corrected 4/6/06)
