The Muhlenberg track and field teams added four ECAC qualifiers to its list when adjusted times for Saturday’s Lehigh Games were released today. The times that were originally published were incorrect due to a problem with the timing system.

Two of the qualifiers came in the women’s high hurdles, where juniors Rachel Drosdick and Kim David both made the cut. The other two were in the 400 meters, one for the men (sophomore Dan Steinhart) and one for the women (freshman Amanda Martini). Steinhart’s time of 50.09 was less than a half-second off the school record.

Junior Lex Mercado’s NCAA provisional time in the 800 meters was 1:53.00, the seventh-fastest in Division III this season.

DeSales came back from a 5-0 deficit to spoil the Muhlenberg baseball team’s season finale. The Bulldogs tied the game on a suicide squeeze in the bottom of the ninth, then hit a sacrifice fly in the 10th for a 9-8 win.

The Mules dropped their seventh straight and ended their season with a record of 15-20-1.

Freshman John Kalis drove in the first run of the game with a fourth-inning double that also broke the school record for two-baggers in a season (13). Junior Ryan Sassaman followed with a two-run single, the first of his three hits. Junior Matthew Block drove in Sassaman with a bloop hit to center.

Chad Hegstrom, one of three Muhlenberg seniors playing in his final game, capped the five-run outburst with an RBI single.

The Mules scored their final three runs on one play in the sixth. With two out and the bases loaded, freshman Eric Hammond chopped a single up the middle, and all three runners came around when the centerfielder overran the ball.

Junior Jason Bonder went the distance, pitching 9 2/3 innings to become only the second Mule since 1976 to hurl more than nine innings in a game.

Junior Pete Oris went 1-for-3 to win the team batting title with a .429 average. Hammond also finished above .400, at .417 – the highest average ever by a Muhlenberg freshman.
