MULES ROLL PAST OWLS ON SENIOR NIGHT

Senior Night was Mules Night at Memorial Hall. The Muhlenberg women’s basketball team cruised past Bryn Mawr, 78-49, and turned the game into a true team effort. Fourteen players made it into the game for the Mules, and 12 of them scored at least two points and secured at least one rebound.

“It was a good win tonight because everyone got a chance to play,
Erin McSherry
Sophomore Erin McSherry recorded seven points, five rebounds and three blocks to help Muhlenberg remain undefeated all-time against Bryn Mawr.
” said senior honoree Emily Wright, who finished the game with eight points and four rebounds.

The Mules shot out to an early lead in the first half – including a 20-0 run three minutes in – and never looked back. They went into halftime up 48-19 after shooting 47.6 percent from the field and holding the Owls to just five field goals.

The second half saw even scoring from the two teams, but the Mules’ lead from the first half carried over and was enough to seal the victory.

Senior Meghan Courtney led the Mules with 18 points and 10 rebounds for her seventh double-double of the season. Three of those points came on a nonchalant turnaround NBA-range three-pointer as the shot clock was about to expire late in the second half. The trey was Courtney’s fourth in the last two games.

Wright and Courtney, who were honored by head coach Ron Rohn in a pre-game ceremony, were touched by his words of praise.

“Coach has been an incredible support system for us these last four years,” Courtney said. “He’s really gone over and above the call of his coaching duties.”

The kind words didn’t stop there. A couple of Wright and Courtney’s teammates had something to say about the senior captains.

“Emily is always there for us,” said junior Michelle Feldman, who contributed three assists and two steals. “She gives a silent confidence. She is always motivating and positive, and she never hangs her head.”

Freshman Kaitlyn O’Malley, who scored seven points and dished out a career-high four assists, talked about Courtney’s contributions to the young team.

“Meghan leads by example, ” O’Malley said. “Whatever she does, it’s always good to mirror her. The team wouldn’t be the same without her.”

The Mules have three games left in conference play, all against tough teams. They will enter the first of those games – against No. 24 McDaniel – in the midst of a six-game win streak, and they are confident in their ability to win.

“We know we have to play our best,” O’Malley said. “But if we just play our game, we shouldn’t have a problem.”
