Indoor Track Teams Sharp in Final Tuneup
Three Break School Records at Princeton

In their final tuneup for next weekend’s Centennial Conference Championships, the Muhlenberg indoor track and field teams broke three records at the Princeton Invitational.

Freshman Sara Gearin put her name in the record book for the second week in a row, this time breaking the mark in the 800 meters. Last week, she set the school record in the 1,000.

Junior Karen Mount, whose 1,000 standard Gearin broke, put her name back in by chopping more than seven seconds off the record in the mile. Senior Jenna Belisonzi also went under the previous school record.

Sophomore Lex Mercado was the lone record-breaker for the men’s team, setting a school record in the 400 meters with an ECAC-qualifying time of 50.79.

Also posting ECAC-qualifying marks were sophomores Jacquelyn Inverso in the triple jump and Rachel Drosdick in the long jump.

Mules Tie Three-Point Record

Starting well past normal time due to the Centennial Conference Wrestling Championships, the Muhlenberg men’s basketball team earned high prime-time ratings for three-point shooting, defeating McDaniel 87-62 for its fourth win in a row.

The Mules (12-12, 9-8) knocked down 13 threes in only 29 attempts, tying the school record they set against Washington and tied against McDaniel last year.

Sophomore Jeff Stewart also had a record night, recording 23 points and 12 rebounds in only 24 minutes for his CC-record 15th double-double of the season.

The Green Terror (5-19, 3-4), looking to avoid its 29th consecutive CC road loss, held an early 6-1 lead before Muhlenberg began lighting it up from the arc. Three-pointers by seniors Chase Licata and Ryan Bonda and junior Jimmy O’Brien keyed an 11-0 run that put the Mules ahead to stay.

Stewart, who had no points and two fouls on the stat sheet nine minutes into the game, dominated the latter part of the first half. He scored 15 points in a 26-8 surge that extended Muhlenberg’s lead to 43-19 late in the first half.

The highlight of the run came when Stewart made a steal at midcourt, dribbled in and bounced a behind-the-back pass to sophomore Chris Pothering for a layup.

Bonda scored 14 of his 16 points in the first half and was one of eight Mules to drain a three-pointer.

Muhlenberg, which led by as many as 29 points in the second half, owned a 52-30 rebounding advantage.

Despite the win, the Mules were eliminated from playoff contention when Haverford knocked off Dickinson.
