MULES KEEP MATTE AWARD

Muhlenberg won its fourth straight Matte Award by defeating Moravian in 11 of 18 head-to-head competitions in the 2006-07 school year. The two schools have competed for the Matte Award every year since 1987-88. Named for the late Aaron Matte (Muhlenberg ’70), a strong supporter of local college athletics, the trophy goes to the school with the better record in head-to-head competition in all sports.

The fall sports gave the Mules a commanding 6-1 lead this year, and they officially clinched with a baseball win at Moravian on April 9. See below for a complete rundown of Matte events.

Representing Muhlenberg at the Matte Award luncheon were basketball players Meghan Muhlenberg-Moravian men’s lacrosse Courtney and Brandon Mefford, who are part of the first Mule senior class to capture the award all four years.

“The Matte Award is great because it brings all Muhlenberg teams together for a common purpose,” said Courtney.

“I know I always come out of [the Moravian game] with extra bumps and bruises,” commented Mefford. “It gets pretty physical because everyone knows what’s on the line.”

The Muhlenberg-Moravian rivalry will get an added boost in 2007-08 when the Greyhounds join the Centennial Conference for football. The two schools have not played a conference contest in any sport since 1993.
