Season Previews

Women’s Basketball
Risley Muhlenberg will have a very different look at the start of the 1999-2000 season. Lost to graduation were three outstanding players who combined for nearly 3,000 points and led the Mules to four consecutive Centennial Conference East Division titles. The remaining players are mostly inexperienced, but talented and enthusiastic. Guard Caressa Lynch is the only senior and captains the team along with junior center Jessica Drennan (9.0 ppg, 7.6 rpg last year) and sophomore forward Jenn Risley (right).
Men’s Basketball
Matt Schneider A veteran team that came within one point of hosting the Centennial Conference championship game has high hopes for the 1999-2000 season. The Mules went 17-8 last winter and won their fifth CC East title (shared or outright) in the last six years. Second-team All-CC forward Matt Schneider (left) and guard Chris Kenny both averaged more than 13 points per game last year. Fellow seniors Eric Nothstein, Kenyamo McFarlane and Scott Nielsen will look to lead the Mules to their ninth consecutive conference playoff berth.
Indoor Track & Field
Katrina Beck

The Muhlenberg men scored only one point at the 1999 Centennial Conference Indoor meet, but new head coach Brad Hackett thinks the team has potential to score a lot more. On the women’s side, he should be able to count on high point production from junior Katrina Beck (above), who was won the CC Indoor high jump title twice.
The wrestling team had a banner year in 1998-99, qualifying three wrestlers for the NCAA Championships — Tyler Cathey (below), Andy Faust and Bill Holsinger. All three are just sophomores and will combine with a strong incoming group to give the young Mules a shot at more national bids.
