Women’s Tennis Gets Second Sweep


Senior Mackenzie Parke broke the school record for career wins as the Muhlenberg women’s tennis team scored its second shutout in four days, blanking Bryn Mawr 9-0.

Parke won 8-2 at second doubles and 6-2, 6-2 at second singles to improve her career record in spring dual matches to 64-28. The previous record for combined wins was 63, held by Hall-of-Famer Michele Marangi (1986-88). Parke is tied with Marangi for the record for doubles wins (32) and with teammate Sarah Niebler for the singles mark (32).

Parke and her doubles partner, freshman Pam Kimmelman, are a perfect 6-0 on the season. Kimmelman won her fourth singles match, 6-0, 6-0.

Senior Megan Schreiber, junior Emily Oster and sophomore Amy Schmidt also were double winners for the Mules (4-2, 2-0), who competed without their regular No. 1 singles player.

The Muhlenberg and Dickinson baseball teams combined for 20 runs on 27 hits, but it was sundown that won, causing the game to be called a 10-10 tie after nine innings in the Centennial Conference opener for both teams at Cedarcreek Field.

Freshman Mike Hart led the Mule offense with four hits, four RBI and two runs. Junior C.J. Kessler recorded three runs, two hits and two walks.

After losing two big leads, the Mules (5-4-1, 0-0-1) came up with a ninth-inning run to secure the tie. Trailing 10-9, junior Aaron Regensburg lined a leadoff single to left and advanced to third on a Matt Tobia hit. Sophomore Chad Hegstrom brought the run in with a one-out ground ball to third.

Muhlenberg built a 5-0 lead with three runs in the second and two more in the fifth when Hart tripled to score Kessler and later came around himself.

The Red Devils (3-8-1, 0-0-1) charged back with four runs in the top of the sixth, only to give up four in the bottom of the frame. Hart once again had the big hit, a wind-blown single that scored two. A two-run Matthew Long double then made it 9-4.

The resilient Dickinson squad struck with a run in the seventh and five more in the eighth before the final Mule rally.

Junior Gregg Burkhart allowed just one hit in the first five innings and struck out 10 in the game.

Each team will once again look for its first CC victory when the teams meet again Friday in Carlisle.
