Track & Field
2004 Season Review:

The Muhlenberg men’s track and field team enjoyed great success from 2001 to 2003, finishing in the top three in every Centennial Conference meet and crowning three All-Americans. In 2004, it was the women’s turn to shine.

The Mule women scored their best finish ever at the CC Outdoor Championships, coming in

fourth (just five points out of third). They also placed fourth indoors (3.5 points from third) for their best finish in 10 years. The women had their first two two-event champions, their first CC Most Outstanding Performer and their second NCAA Championships competitor.

The men didn’t do too shabby for themselves. They were third indoors – landing in the top three for the fourth year in a row – and fifth outdoors. The men also had an outdoor NCAA qualifier.

Leading the charge for the women were freshman Jacquelyn Inverso indoors and sophomore Danielle Seiler outdoors. Inverso was named Most Outstanding Performer for field events at the CC Indoor Championships after winning the triple and high jumps and coming in second in the long jump. An NCAA provisional qualifier in the triple jump, in which she set the school record both indoors and outdoors, she was Muhlenberg's first female to win two events at a conference championship meet.

Seiler duplicated that feat outdoors, capturing the 400 meters and the 400-meter hurdles, breaking school records in both events. She was invited to the NCAA Championships in the hurdles and finished 17th.

The Mules’ third gold medalist was freshman Sarah Mitchell, who had an outstanding spring season throwing the javelin. She broke the school record and provisionally qualified for the NCAA Championships.

Other top performers for the women included sophomore Karen Mount, who contributed to six

school records (two individual and one relay both indoors and outdoors), freshman Rachel Drosdick, who broke the school record in the heptathlon, and junior Kristin Boydston, who placed in all three throws at the CC Outdoor Championships.

The men were again led by junior John Brodowski, who shook off injuries to qualify for the NCAA Championships in the decathlon for the second year in a row. He came in 14th. Brodowski earned his third career CC gold medal when he won the high jump outdoors, and he placed in the top three in three indoor events.

Senior Randy Holak erased three near-misses by taking first place in the javelin at the CC meet. The three previous years, he finished second twice and third once.

Muhlenberg was strong in the shot put all year, placing three in the top four indoors and four in the top eight outdoors at the CC championships. Indoors, senior Frank Santini won the silver medal at the CC meet and broke a 29-year-old school record a week later at Ursinus.

Freshman Lex Mercado was the top newcomer for the Mule men’s team, finishing second in the 800, fourth in the 400 and in the top five on three relay teams indoors.
