Amanda McGovern women’s lacrosse receives votes
in national poll

The Muhlenberg women’s lacrosse team is having an outstanding year, and it has not gone unnoticed.

For the first time in their 26-year history, the Mules received votes in the national Division III poll.

Muhlenberg was one of four teams listed as receiving votes in the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association/Under Armour Division III top 20 poll released today.

The Mules are off to their best start in their history, with an 8-1 record, and have won six in a row to tie a school record. They are one of 16 teams in Division III with fewer than two losses. Last week, Muhlenberg posted a 12-10 victory against Dickinson, which has been nationally ranked most of the season, and a 15-14 overtime win at McDaniel, which owns a win against 18th-ranked Elizabethtown.

Muhlenberg will put its new-found national acclaim to the test tomorrow when it hosts fourth-ranked Franklin & Marshall, the defending national runner-up.

Junior Amanda McGovern leads the Mules with 46 points on 33 goals and 13 assists.
