Three Wrestlers Perfect at MIT

Wrestling: Three Mule wrestlers went unbeaten as Muhlenberg went 1-3 in the North South Duals at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Seniors Josh Carter and David Brown and sophomore Dale Mills all had perfect days for the Mules (1-6). Carter, a heavyweight, won two bouts by fall, one by major decision and one by decision. He got each of his pins in less than a minute.

Brown posted one major decision win, one decision win and two forfeit wins at 133. At 149, Mills had two pins and two decisions for his four wins.

The Mules picked up their first dual meet win of the season, knocking off MIT, 30-21, in their second meet of the day. MIT won the first bout, but the Mules took the next four, and Carter sealed the win with a pin in 50 seconds.

Muhlenberg dropped meets to Western New England, 30-21, Wesleyan (Conn.), 29-18, and Trinity (Conn.), 33-18. York was the only team to go 4-0 at the duals, and Centennial Conference squads Johns Hopkins and Ursinus were two of four teams to post 3-1 marks.

The Muhlenberg women’s basketball team scored 11 points in a minute to pull away late and win at Gettysburg, 99-82.

The game was close throughout the first 33 minutes, with Muhlenberg (10-0, 5-0) leading, 66-65, with 7:16 remaining. That’s when freshman Meghan Courtney got the Mule run going with a jumper. Senior Becky Richmond hit a three-pointer 33 seconds later to push the lead to six.

After a Kristen Piscadlo steal, Richmond missed a three, but senior Lindsay Tis grabbed the rebound, made a layup and was fouled. After Tis sank the free throw, senior Susan Marchiano stole the inbounds pass and found Piscadlo for a three-pointer to put the Mules up, 77-65, at the 6:17 mark.

Muhlenberg went on to total 33 points in the final 7:16. The Mule offense was fueled by a team-record-tying 13 three-pointers. Richmond led the Mule attack, converting five of her eight three-point attempts and finishing with 17 points for the second straight game. Junior Gwen Doyle hit three shots from behind the arc and had 12 points.

The Mules had 23 steals and scored 38 points off Bullet turnovers. Tis led the squad with four steals and tallied a season-high eight rebounds, all on the offensive glass. Courtney made three steals and grabbed seven rebounds in just seven minutes of first-half action. She finished with 10 boards in 15 minutes.

Jen Bengel and Elizabeth Ross each scored 20 points and reached double-figues in rebounds for the Bullets (4-9, 1-5). Gettysburg had five double-digit scorers, but the rest of the team managed only one basket against the ’Berg pressure defense.

Piscadlo had a career-best seven assists for the Mules, who are one of seven remaining unbeaten teams in Division III. Muhlenberg’s NCAA-leading scoring average is now 94.7 points per game.
