Bernardo Named Player of the Week

Junior running back Matt Bernardo of the Muhlenberg football team has been named offensive player of the week by the Centennial Conference for the third time in his career.

Bernardo was honored after he rolled up a career-high 265 all-purpose Matt
Bernardo yards and became the Mules’ all-time touchdown leader in a 68-22 win over previously unbeaten Franklin & Marshall. He scored on runs of 25 and 24 yards in the second quarter and returned the opening kickoff of the second half 87 yards for another TD. Bernardo, who rushed for 117 yards on 14 carries, now has 43 career touchdowns in 24 games.

Bernardo leads the CC in rushing (389 yards), kickoff returns (36.8 yards per return), all-purpose yards (700) and scoring (48 points).

Johns Hopkins defensive back Matt Campbell, who recorded 10 tackles, forced a fumble, recovered a fumble and intercepted a pass in a 28-7 win against Carnegie Mellon, was the defensive player of the week.

Elsewhere in the CC, McDaniel set up Saturday’s showdown against Muhlenberg by defeating Ursinus, 37-14. Dickinson (38-31 against Albright) and Gettysburg (45-10 against Averett) scored non-league victories.

Women’s Tennis Wraps Up Play at Regional

The three Muhlenberg individuals and teams who went 2-0 on the first day of the ITA Southeast Regional at Mary Washington all lost their first matches on the second day.

In the singles main draw, junior Gena Ross, seeded 13th, lost in straight sets to the third-seeded player from Washington & Lee. Ross and junior Mackenzie Parke, seeded sixth as a doubles team, fell in the quarterfinals to a familiar team from Centennial Conference rival Washington, 8-4.

In the singles “B” draw, freshman Stacy Lipschutz was eliminated in the Round of 16 by a Mary Washington player.

Lipschutz and classmate Lauren Goldberg were the only Mules to post a win on Sunday, taking an 8-2 match from a Bridgewater duo in the doubles “B” draw quarterfinals. They defaulted their consolation semifinal match.
