FAUST BREAKS CC RECORD
WOMEN’S BASKETBALL LOSES IN OVERTIME

The Muhlenberg women’s basketball team may have been down, but they’re not out.

Although the Mules dropped their final contest of the regular season to Ursinus, 67-56, in overtime, they still clinched the No. 3 seed in the Centennial Conference playoffs. They will play Dickinson at McDaniel on Saturday after a first-round bye.

With the Mules trailing by two in regulation, sophomore Lauren Boyle drove into the paint for a layup with 3.8 seconds remaining and tied the score, 55-55. Ursinus attempted an NBA-range three at the buzzer for the win, but it was off the mark, forcing overtime.

The Bears opened the extra period on a 7-0 run before allowing Muhlenberg its only point of overtime on one of two foul shots by sophomore Kaitlin Strumph. She earned the pair of free-throw attempts after pulling down a long rebound and drawing a clear-path foul as she went in for a fast-break layup. Ursinus then closed out the game with five unanswered points for the win.

Senior Meghan Courtney led the Mules with her ninth double-double of the season, recording 18 points and 10 boards. Sophomore Erin McSherry tied her career high with 13 rebounds.

It was another record-setting day for the Muhlenberg indoor track team. The Mules competed in their last meet before the Centennial Conference Championships and came out with two school records and 15 performances that earned a spot on the Muhlenberg all-time top ten lists.

Sophomore Stuart Udis broke the school record in the 1,000 meters, running it in 2:31.80. He improved upon the previous record by nearly three seconds.

The Mules also saw athletes qualify for the ECAC Championships in five events. Faust qualified in pole vault, and Udis and sophomore David Chorney (2:34.59) qualified in the 1,000 meters. Senior Lex Mercado (1:57.24) qualified in the 800 meters, and junior Michael Karchner (21-9) qualified in the long jump. Senior Jacquelyn Inverso (35-7¾) qualified in the triple jump.
