WRESTLING ENDS REGULAR SEASON WITH WIN; BASKETBALL POSTPONED

The Muhlenberg wrestling team closed out its dual-meet season with a 36-21 win at Baptist Bible.

The Mules (11-10), who finished with a winning record for the third straight year, will compete for the Centennial Conference Championships next Saturday at McDaniel.

Muhlenberg made quick work of the Defenders, winning three bouts by forfeit and three others with first-period pins. Seniors Nate Yeasted, Joe Salerno and Greg Jacobs recorded the falls, with Yeasted’s coming in 48 seconds – just four seconds off his fastest career pin. Salerno is now tied for 10th place on the Mules’ all-time list with 18 career pins.

Cash Sets Two School Records

Senior Will Elson qualified provisionally for the NCAA Division III Indoor Track and Field Championships while winning the 800 meters at the Bucknell
Brian Cash
Cash finished fourth in both the mile and the 1,000 meters.
Winter Classic.

Elson finished first in a field that included nine Division I and II runners with a time of 1:54.01 – more than a minute better than the second-place finisher. The time broke the school record of 1:55.73 that he had set twice previously and surpassed the NCAA provisional qualifying standard of 1:55.10. The automatic qualifying mark is 1:52.90. Elson has already participated in the NCAA Championships in both cross country and outdoor track.

Elson’s feat highlighted a meet in which the Mules broke four school records and had five ECAC qualifiers.

Junior Brian Cash was responsible for half of the school records, knocking Elson out of the record book in the 1,000 meters and breaking the indoor mile record that was set in 1980. It had been the oldest standing school record for a track event.

Freshman Karen Mount put her name in the women’s record book in the 1,000 meters, toppling the mark set four weeks ago by junior Diana Garretto.
