2000-2001 Season Highlights

  • Muhlenberg rebounded from a 2-4 start to win seven of its final nine spring matches, including five straight Centennial Conference matches in one stretch. The Mules’ nine wins tied for the fourth-most in school history.
  • One of Muhlenberg’s wins was a 4-3 decision against Drew, which entered the match undefeated for the spring and ranked in the region.
  • The No. 1 doubles team of senior Robby Richman and sophomore Brad Scheller was the top seed in the CC Tournament and advanced to the final before losing to a duo from Washington. The pair combined for a 13-3 record during the school year.
  • Richman finished his career third on the all-time win list with a career record of 84-41-2. He advanced to the quarterfinals in the singles draw of the CC Tournament.
  • Scheller led the team in wins with a 14-8 singles record at No. 2, increasing his career win total to 52 after only two seasons.
