Alex Mukensturm and Emily Hilt
Baseball, Women's Track & Field
These two athletes each had career weeks in their respective sports, making it too hard to choose only one. Mukensturm turned in two of the best pitching performances of his career on Monday and Sunday, allowing just four runs over 15 innings. On Monday against Ohio Northern, the senior hurled a complete game and gave up just one run while striking out a career-high 10. Against Marietta on Saturday, he allowed three runs over six innings and struck out seven in another quality start. Mukenstrum earned the win in both contests.
On Saturday and Sunday, Hilt dominated the All-Ohio Mulits at Muskingum and broke her own heptathlon record by 400 points with a total of 4,389. Hilt won the 100-meter hurdles, high jump and javelin throw, placed second in the long jump and 800-meter race and finished third in the shot put and 200-meter dash. Her time of 15.12 seconds in the 100-meter hurdles also broke her own school record.
