lacrosse conferences in Division III.

The Mules were ahead, tied or within one goal in the third quarter of half of their eight CC games, including their opener against top-10 Gettysburg, but for the second year in a row could not win a conference game. They finished with an overall record of 7-9.

As it has in each of its three seasons since reinstatement as a varsity sport, Muhlenberg excelled in non-conference competition, going 7-1, with the lone loss coming to nationally ranked Lynchburg. The Mules are 16-2 outside of the CC the last three years.

Two of the non-conference wins came in overtime, against Montclair State and (for the second straight year) Kings Point, improving Muhlenberg’s three-year overtime record to 5-0.

One sign of the Mules’ progress in the CC, although it did not show up in the standings, was that they had their first two all-conference selections. Bradley Lutzer, the lone senior on the team, received

second-team honors as a defenseman. He led all CC longstickmen with a school-record 72 ground balls. Sophomore Kyle Hart, second to Lutzer with 67 ground balls, earned honorable mention as a defensive midfielder.

Offensively, Muhlenberg was led by freshman Mickey Norton, who tied a school record with 42 points. His 26 assists broke the school record and already rank third on the program’s all-time list. Sophomore Sean Toohill scored a team-leading 22 goals, including the overtime game-winner against Kings Point, and junior James Robinson added 20.

Kyle Farris was one of several freshmen to make an impact, finishing third on the team with 17 goals and fourth with 37 ground balls. He polished off his first career hat trick by scoring the winning goal in overtime to beat Montclair State.
