MEN’S TENNIS ENDS WITH WIN
MITCHELL SEVENTH AT PENN RELAYS

Seven is the lucky number for senior Sarah Mitchell of the Muhlenberg women’s track and field team. She earned All-America honors by finishing seventh at the 2006 NCAA Division III Championships, and 11 months later she placed seventh at a bigger meet: the Penn Relays.

Mitchell threw 135-9 – hitting the NCAA provisional standard for the fourth straight meet – to finish seventh in the College Women Javelin Throw. The College Women Javelin Throw Championship, a different event, featured the top throwers in the country, but Mitchell’s field was plenty competitive. She was one of only two Division III athletes in the field of 35, and she finished ahead of throwers from (among other schools) Clemson, Arkansas, Harvard, Navy, Penn State and Wake Forest.

Mark The Muhlenberg men’s tennis team closed out the 2007 season with a come-from-behind 5-4 home win against Elizabethtown.

The victory was the first in nearly a month for the Mules, who lost five matches that were completed and two more to the weather, and it came against a Blue Jay squad that reached the Commonwealth Conference championship match last weekend.

After dropping two of three doubles matches, Muhlenberg (5-7) dominated the bottom half of the singles ladder, taking fourth through sixth singles handily in straight sets. Freshman Robbie Goldwein clinched the win for the Mules by outlasting his opponent – a second-team all-conference selection – in a second-set tiebreaker at No. 1.

Freshman Mark Apostolos (above) was the lone Mules to win at both doubles and singles. Senior Michael DiVita won 6-1, 6-2 at No. 6 singles in the final match of his career.
