Proof that it takes all sizes in sports, Muhlenberg’s top athletes for January 2013 are separated by about a foot-and-a-half in height.
Female Athlete of the Month – Stephanie Carnevale, Track & Field
Carnevale set one school record and neared another one in three January meets. She shattered an eight-year-old record in the 55-meter hurdles while finishing first at the Muhlenberg Invitational and came within six hundredths of a second of the mark in the 55 meters. Her hurdles time was the 10th-fastest in Division III at the end of the month. Carnevale also finished fifth in the 55 hurdles at the season-opening Kutztown Invitational
Male Athlete of the Month – Kevin Hargrove, Basketball
Hargrove averaged 13.3 points, 8.3 rebounds and 3.1 blocked shots while shooting 59.8 percent from the field in nine games, helping the Mules go 5-3 in the Centennial Conference (5-4 overall). He started the month by recording a triple-double (12 points, 13 rebounds, 10 blocks) against McDaniel, and in the second-to-last game of January, he became Muhlenberg’s all-time leader in blocked shots. Hargrove also scored a career-high 24 points in an overtime loss at Gettysburg.
