The Muhlenberg Track and Field team successfully started their season competing in four indoor meets so far. The program has broken multiple school records, set new personal records, as well as first place finishes.
One of the program’s captains, Conner Soderstedt ‘23, remarked, “I would say the biggest contribution to our team’s success is our preparation and mindset. We have been working all of winter break and putting in the work during the off season. We also believe in our team and our ability to succeed as a team.”
Additionally, Muhlenberg top ten all-time performances were seen from Mike Powel ‘26, who scored 6th place all time in Muhlenberg history in the shot put, Dylan De Magistris ‘24, who scored 10th place on the Muhlenberg all-time performance list in the shot put, and Avery McNulty ‘26, who tied for a 7th-place all time performance in the high jump in her first collegiate meet, and scored the #1 high jump performance seen in the Centennial Conference this season.
After scoring three first place finishes, Niki Matthews ‘26 reflected on the meet, “It was fun to host a meet and to see all the hard work and preparation that goes into hosting a track meet. I think the home meet went really well and it was great to see my teammates and I compete in numerous events. I am really proud of my teammates for their excellent performances and can’t wait to see how well we do the rest of the season.”
Looking forward to future meets, track and field is ready to continue building off the successful season they have had so far. As Soderstedt exclaimed, “I think the whole team is excited and ready to compete in the Conference Championships and continue to improve upon our placement from last season.” Matthews also expressed excitement in the Conference Championships, “I am excited for the remainder of the season and to see all that we can accomplish individually and as a team. I am most looking forward to the Conference Championships and the outdoor season!” There appears to be a positive outlook and future for the team as they prepare for the Conference Championships and continue to break records this season.
