WOMEN’S TENNIS EDGED BY E-TOWN

The Muhlenberg women’s tennis team battled Elizabethtown, ranked No. 11 in the Atlantic South region, and dropped a close one, 5-4.

Although the Blue Jays held a 2-1 advantage after doubles competition, the Mules – ranked No. 19 in the Atlantic South – accomplished a feat of their own in the first part of the match. At No. 1 doubles, sophomore Jenn Powell and senior Pam Kimmelman defeated the No. 26 pair in the region, 8-6.

After singles play, Powell and Kimmelman remained undefeated on the day, winning their No. 1 and No. 2 singles matches, respectively, in straight sets. Powell’s win came against the Commonwealth Conference player of the year who had lost only four times in her previous 21 matches this season. For Kimmelman, the last time Muhlenberg and Elizabethtown faced off (in 2005), she played the same opponent at No. 2 and also won that match in straight sets.

Muhlenberg’s final team point of the day came at No. 3 singles, where sophomore Carly Rotfeld defeated her opponent, 6-1, 6-1. Rotfeld is now a perfect 10-0 on the season.

SWEET RESULTS FOR MEN’S GOLF AT HERSHEY

Garrett Carpenter
Carpenter lowered his stroke average for the year to 80.4.
The Muhlenberg men’s golf team had a good day at the Elizabethtown Blue Jay Classic, held at the Hershey Country Club East Course.

The Mules finished fourth out of 15 complete teams, seven strokes behind first-place Susquehanna. It was the third time Muhlenberg placed in the top five in its last four tournaments. Better still, the Mules shot better than four of the other five Centennial Conference teams at the tournament.

Junior Garrett Carpenter tied for third out of 84 golfers with a two-over-par 73. It was a career-low round for Carpenter, whose previous best was a 74 at NYU last spring. Freshman Biff Slocum was a stroke back with a career-best 74, tying for fifth place.
