Wrestling: Back-to-back pins by junior Nate Yeasted and senior Bill Holsinger turned around the final match of the day and allowed Muhlenberg to claim one win in a quadrangular meet at York.
The Mules (15-8) lost to 13th-ranked Lycoming, 33-9, and 24th-ranked York, 31-10, before defeating Hunter, 28-13.
In the Hunter match, Muhlenberg trailed 6-4 after three matches before the consecutive pins. Holsingers, which came in just 58 seconds, capped a perfect 3-0 day for the 149-pounder. He has a school-record 10 pins in dual meets and an overall record of 24-1 this season.
Senior heavyweight Tyler Cathey improved his perfect record to 8-0 with a decision and a major decision. He has won 32 consecutive matches in dual meets.
Senior Andrew Faust went 2-1 at 165, dropping a two-point decision against York that snapped his winning streak at 12.
Muhlenberg needs to sweep Baptist Bible and Elizabethtown in its regular-season finale next Saturday to tie the school record of 17 wins in a season.
For the fourth straight time the Muhlenberg mens and womens
basketball teams played on the same day, one won and the other lost. The
Mule men opened the Centennial Conference doubleheader against Johns
Hopkins with a 62-52 loss, but the women never trailed in a 68-52 win.
Womens Basketball: Sophomore Susan Marchiano had game highs of 18 points and 13 rebounds for her fourth straight double-double to lead the Mules.
The win, combined with Swarthmores 62-44 loss at Franklin & Marshall, allowed Muhlenberg (16-2, 8-2) to climb to within a half-game of first place in the CC East Division. It also extended the Mules school-record homecourt winning streak to 18 and put them 14 games over .500 for the first time in program history.
Muhlenberg, ranked 18th in Division III by both d3hoops.com and the WBCA, held the Blue Jays (17-4, 8-2) to their lowest point total of the season on 32.8-percent shooting. Hopkins, ranked 25th in the WBCA poll, committed 18 of its 27 turnovers in the first half.
Senior Lindsay St. Lawrence, returning to action after missing three games with a knee injury, hit back-to-back three-pointers to kick off an 18-7 run over the final six minutes of the first that gave the Mules a 12-point lead at the break. Muhlenberg kept the double-digit advantage throughout the second half.
Senior Jenn Risley scored 11 points and freshman Gwen Doyle added 10. Click here for box score.
Mens Basketball: The matchup between the top two scoring offenses in the CC turned into a defensive struggle in which Muhlenberg struggled more.
The Mules (15-5, 6-3) shot only 22.2 percent in the first half and 27.7 percent for the game in losing their eighth straight to Johns Hopkins at Memorial Hall. All other CC teams have combined for nine wins at the home of the Mules.
Muhlenberg held the Blue Jays (12-8, 6-3) without a field goal for the final 5:50 of the first half and for a seven-minute stretch of the second half, but could not get any closer than eight points down in the second half.
Junior Toomey Anderson led the Mules with 13 points. Senior Mark Lesko was held to a season-low 10 points by a double-teaming Hopkins defense. Senior Michael Barletta also scored 10.
