MITCHELL BACK AT NCAAs, B’GOSH

Sarah Mitchell will try to become the first member of the Muhlenberg track and field program to earn multiple All-America honors outdoors when she competes in the Sarah
Mitchell javelin at the NCAA Division III Championships, hosted by the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, tomorrow.

Mitchell finished seventh as a junior last year, making history as the Mules’ first female All-American in track and field. She was seeded 14th but uncorked a school- and personal-record throw of 142-2 to qualify for the finals. This year, Mitchell goes in seeded seventh in a field of 18, having broken her own record with a mark of 145-4.

“I guess it’s more pressure when you’re going in like this,” said NCAA Track
logo Mitchell. “But Coach always tells us that if you throw how did to get in, you’ll be fine. I’m confident because I threw what I did to qualify at the end of the season, not at the beginning. I’ve been getting progressively better.”

Mitchell, the lone Mule to qualify for the national meet, finished first in the javelin at five outdoor meets in 2007, including the Centennial Conference Championships, where she was named Most Outstanding Performer for field events. She won the javelin four straight years at the CC meet.
