LACROSSE TEAMS LOSE AT HOME

WOMEN’S LACROSSE
Playing its first of three games in a row against non-ranked CC squads, Muhlenberg hoped to take advantage and pull out a victory. The Mules held a 5-3 lead in the first half and stayed close in the second, but at the end, they were edged by Washington, 11-10.

The Mules (7-4, 1-4) came back from two goals down late in the game to tie the score at 10-10 with 4:20 to go, but with just over a minute left to play, they committed a foul on the defensive end, allowing Washington to set up for a free-position shot that turned into the game winning goal. After the score, the Shorewomen (6-7, 2-3) won the ensuing draw and controlled possession until the clock ran out.

Sophomore Ruth Morrongiello and freshman Amanda McGovern each recorded a hat trick to lead the Mules. On the defensive end, junior Maura Lane picked up a season-high five ground balls.

MEN’S LACROSSE
Last year, Muhlenberg roared to an 8-0 lead and defeated Franklin & Marshall, 14-6, for its first win against an established CC opponent. This time, the Diplomats turned the tables, scoring the first six goals of a 12-7 victory.

The Mules (5-4, 1-4) tried to climb back in the game and got within 8-5 with 9:11 left in the third quarter. F&M (5-4, 2-2) scored the next four goals, though, three of them on extra-man opportunities.

Junior Mickey Norton led Muhlenberg with five points on two goals and three assists. Senior Kyle Hart picked up six ground balls.

Mitchell Qualifies Again

Sarah For the second week in a row, senior Sarah Mitchell of the Muhlenberg track and field team hit the NCAA provisional qualifying mark in the javelin. Throwing on a cold day at Princeton’s Sam Howell Invitational, Mitchell matched last week’s mark of 40.20 meters (131-11) to finish second.

Last year, Mitchell (left) didn’t reach the provisional mark until April 23. She went on finish seventh at the NCAA Championships, becoming the first member of the Mule women’s program to earn All-America honors.

Muhlenberg also had three ECAC-qualifying performances at Princeton: both 4x100 relay teams, and senior Rachel Drosdick in the 100-meter hurdles.
