MOUNT HITS PROVISIONAL MARK
WOMEN’S BASKETBALL GETS HELP

The scheduled home basketball doubleheader against McDaniel was postponed due to snow. The two games are tentatively rescheduled for Sunday, Feb. 12, at 6:00 (women) and 8:00 (men), pending travel conditions.

If the games cannot be played on Sunday, the doubleheader will be split up, with the men playing on Monday, Feb. 13, and the women on Thursday, Feb. 16.

Despite not playing, the Mule women had a good day, as Johns Hopkins suffered a 53-52 loss at Ursinus to fall to 14-2 in the Centennial Conference. Muhlenberg, at 13-2, is a half-game back and can do no worse than tie for the regular-season championship by winning its final three games.

On the men’s side, Haverford defeated Dickinson, 91-75, to move into sole possession of the fifth and final playoff spot. The Mules need to beat McDaniel to keep pace. Washington topped Franklin & Marshall, 74-64, to remain a game in front of Haverford in fourth place.

Karen Mount Senior Karen Mount of the Muhlenberg indoor track and field team broke two school records and provisionally qualified for the NCAA Championships in the 800 meters at the Bucknell Winter Classic.

Overall, both Mule teams made significant progress at the 15-team meet, reaching their objective of qualifying many athletes for the Centennial Conference Championships.

In a 15-team meet that included several Division I squads, Mount (left) won the 800 with a time of 2:15.84 – nearly five seconds faster than the school record she set at Susquehanna three weeks ago. She easily came in under the provisional qualifying standard of 2:18.00 and was not far from the automatic time of 2:14.10.

Mount also ran on the 4x400 relay team that shaved two one-hundredths of a second off the school record set last week. Another member of that foursome, senior Danielle Seiler, missed the school record in the 200 by a mere three one-hundredths of a second.

Juniors Lex Mercado and Steve Rothwell both posted ECAC-qualifying times while finishing second and third in the mile.
