WOMEN FALL TO 30th IN POLL; TWO NAMED TO HONOR ROLL

The Muhlenberg women’s basketball team is ranked 30th in the first D3hoops.com poll of the season.

The Mules were 20th in the preseason poll, but dropped after losing by 17 ponits at home to defending national runner-up St. Lawrence (currently ranked 12th).

Muhlenberg opened the week with a four-point loss at No. 15 DeSales. After difficult games against rivals Moravian and Franklin & Marshall this week, the schedule gets even more difficult: The Mules travel to No. 5 Scranton on Dec. 17; face No. 19 Southern Maine in a tournament at Springfield on Jan. 4; and are in a tournament with No. 4 King’s the following weekend.

Junior center Susan Marchiano was named to the Centennial Conference Weekly Honor Roll for games through Dec. 1 for her performance in a 77-63 win against Juniata. She scored 23 points on 10-of-16 shooting and pulled down nine rebounds.

Sophomore forward John Jemmott also earned a spot on the Honor Roll after recording a double-double with career highs of 19 points and 10 rebounds in a 82-75 loss at Arcadia.

REED NAMED TO AZTEC BOWL SQUAD

Senior kicker Chris Reed of the Muhlenberg football team has been selected to play for the American Football Coaches Association’s Division III all-star team that will represent the United States against the Mexican National Team in the 2002 Aztec Bowl in Torreon, Mexico, on Dec. 14.

Reed, who leads Division III with 16 field goals (including seven of 40 yards or longer) and converted 49 of 51 extra-point attempts this season, is one of 42 Division III seniors from around the country who will make up the team. He is the second Mule to be selected for the Aztec Bowl: offensive lineman John Schoeller played in the 2002 game in Merida.

The Aztec Bowl is the traditional season-ending game for Mexico’s college football season. The game has been played 31 times since 1947 with the last five contests featuring the United States-Mexico matchup (all won by the United States).
