The best season in Muhlenberg women’s basketball history came to an official end tonight when the bids for the NCAA Tournament were announced and the Mules were not among the 50 teams selected.

Muhlenberg (21-4) was on the bubble for one of the seven available at-large berths. The Mules were hurt when King’s, the top-ranked team in the region, lost in the first round of the Freedom Conference tournament and took up one of the at-large berths.

King’s received a first-round bye and will play the winner of the Alvernia-Hunter game. The other regional first-round game pits Centennial Conference champion Western Maryland against Scranton, with the winner facing Messiah.

Springfield, the only other NCAA Tournament team the Mules played during the season, received a first-round bye in the Northeast Region.


The Muhlenberg baseball team dropped the rubber game of its season-opening three-game series at Washington & Lee by a 13-2 score.

The Generals (3-3) broke open a 3-0 game by scoring six runs in the bottom of the sixth inning.

The Mules scored their lone runs in the top of the seventh. Junior Carl Kerstetter, who drew a pinch-hit walk, scored on a two-out double by junior Justin Rubenstein. Junior Steve Rohn plated Rubenstein with a single to center.

Junior Justin Graf had two of the Mules’ 10 hits. Muhlenberg left 13 runners on base and squandered a bases-loaded, no-out situation in the second.

The Mules will return North, then travel South again next weekend to play nine games in eight days in Homestead, Fla.
