women’s tennis clinches playoff berth
The Mules claimed a home victory against Franklin & Marshall, 7-2, clinching a return to the CC playoffs after missing them last season.
Muhlenberg (8-4, 7-2) will be the third or fourth seed for the CC playoffs, which will be held next weekend at Johns Hopkins. The seeding will be determined by Friday’s final regular-season finale against Washington.
In defeating the Diplomats for the sixth time in seven years, the Mules swept the doubles and won four of six singles matches. The top three players in the lineup – juniors Jenn Powell and Carly Rotfeld and sophomore Caitie Druker -- all won at both doubles and singles. Druker posted a memorable win at No. 2 singles, winning the first set, 6-2, then falling behind 5-0 in the second before storming back to capture the next seven games.
The Mules, who bounced back from two straight road losses, retained their impeccable home record this season, achieving their fourth straight win on Kern Field Courts.
