Mules Sweep Home Invitational

Left to right: Senior Sara Gearin won the mile and anchored the 4x1600-meter relay team to first place; freshman Patrick Thornton came from behind to win the 800 meters; freshman Debra Crockett had her third straight strong showing in the shot put, winning the event; senior Rachel Drosdick led a 1-2-3-4 Muhlenberg finish in the 55-meter hurdles and was third in the long jump.

It was home sweet home for the Muhlenberg men’s and women’s indoor track teams.

Competing in their first home meet of the season, the Mules finished in the top spot in 14 events and finished with 201 (women) and 182.5 (men) team points. The women won their half of the meet by a 114-point margin.

“We’re all really comfortable here, so we enjoy competing on our own turf,” said junior Erika Koop, who finished first in the high jump with a 5-0 jump.

Among the top finishers, two qualified for the ECAC Tournament. Senior Jacquelyn Inverso qualified in triple jump with a jump of 34-8½, and freshman Alex Faust qualified in the pole vault, clearing 10-0 and tying the school record she had previously set.

Although Muhlenberg competed well today, the teams know they can do even better.

“We know what Coach Hackett’s expectations are,” Koop said. “We have the same expectations as he does, but I don’t think we’ve turned it on as much as we could have. We have a lot more in us than what we’ve shown.”
