WOMEN ATHLETES HONORED
AMORE WINS HOSPODAR AWARD

Kristen Amore Senior Kristen Amore received the Helene Hospodar Award at Muhlenberg’s recent Senior Athlete Dinner.

The award is given in memory of Helene Hospodar to a female senior athlete with a strong academic record who has demonstrated leadership both on and off the field or court and who epitomizes the concept of a “team player.”

Hospodar was a coach of field hockey, basketball, softball and lacrosse at Muhlenberg from 1963 to 1990 and served as advisor to the cheerleaders before retiring in 1997. Her family established the award after she passed away in September 2003.

Amore was instrumental in leading the Mule women’s golf team to a Centennial Conference championship in 2007. One of the first players to come to the Muhlenberg program with considerable prior experience in golf, she improved her stroke average every year and was the team’s top finisher at the CC tournament twice. Amore also excelled in the classroom as a chemistry major, earning membership in Phi Beta Kappa.

Courtney Named Top Athlete

Meghan Courtney Senior Meghan Courtney was named Muhlenberg’s Outstanding Athlete at the annual Lehigh Valley Association of Intercollegiate Athletics for Women (LVAIAW) luncheon last week.

The honor is the latest in a long line for Courtney, who was the Centennial Conference co-player of the year in women’s basketball, a first-team All-CC selection for the second year in a row, a second-team all-region pick (also for the second straight year) and a Division III honorable mention All-American.

Courtney led the Mules in scoring (15.3 ppg), rebounding (9.4 rpg), field-goal percentage (.425) and blocked shots (51), landing in the top six in the Centennial Conference in each of those categories. She also finished third on the team with 26 steals.

Courtney graduates among the leaders all-time at Muhlenberg in several categories. She is second in blocked shots (112), third in scoring (1,076 points) and in a tie for fifth place in rebounds (665).

Most importantly, Courtney is tied for first in career wins (75), having helped the Mules to three CC playoff berths, one of which resulted in the 2006 CC championship.
