Track Teams Well on Track

Senior Karen Mount contributed to two big first-place finishes for the Muhlenberg women’s indoor track and field team at Susquehanna’s Maroon & Orange Classic.

Mount led the 800 meters wire-to-wire, winning by more than 11 seconds in a school-record and ECAC-qualifying time of 2:20.62. She knocked nearly four seconds off the previous school record and beat her old indoor personal best by almost seven seconds.

In the 4x400, Mount ran the second leg on a relay team that won by almost 10 seconds. The Mules’ time of 4:12.22 missed the school record by just five one-hundredths of a second – an extraordinary time for just the second meet of the season.

Muhlenberg had three other event winners. For the men, junior Steve Rothwell captured the 800 meters, and classmate Lex Mercado won the mile with a personal-best time of 4:27.18. The women’s 4x200 relay squeaked by Elizabethtown by four hundredths of a second.

Senior Danielle Seiler, who along with sophomores Emily Karel and Jenna Lombardi ran on both first-place relay teams, had an outstanding meet. She finished second to a Division II runner in the 400 with an ECAC-qualifying mark and posted the fourth-best preliminary time in the 55 hurdles, although she did not run in the final.

came away with two victories for the Mules (4-1, 2-0).

Against Gettysburg (1-8, 0-4), Hall, 133, took 4:07 to collect his team-high 10th pin of the season. Junior John Hesse, at 174, picked up his first career technical fall and at 197, classmate Matt Loesch won a 15-7 major decision. Five forfeits also helped the Mules.

Muhlenberg won the first six bouts against Johns Hopkins (1-2, 4-7) en route to beating the Blue Jays for the first time since 2002. Tenenhaus, at 125, and Hall started the meet by winning decisions of 8-4 and 8-2, respectively. For Tenenhaus, it was his first action of the year after spending the fall semester interning in Washington, D.C. Hall broke a 2-2 tie in his win by scoring five points in the third period and adding a riding-time point.

Kein then won a major decision, 13-2, against a wrestler who finished third at the 2005 Centennial Conference Championships at 141 and was 14-4 this season. Sophomore Joseph DeCampo came back from down 4-2 to win an 11-5 decision.

Dale Mills (157) improved to 5-0 in dual meets this season (43-6 for his career) when he pinned his opponent in just 1:50 to give Muhlenberg a 22-0 lead. Trailing 3-0 in the third period, Gibson recorded a reversal and won riding time to force overtime. In the first extra session, his takedown resulted in a 5-3 decision victory.

Hopkins won the next three bouts, but sophomore Chris Swensen finished the day on a positive note by collecting a decision for his first career victory in a dual meet.
