Volleyball takes second at Moravian
The Mules (3-1)
“Our team goal was to beat Moravian,” said junior Liz Dean, who contributed a team-high nine kills to the victory. “We’re excited that we were able to keep a goal that we made as a team.”
Muhlenberg lost to tournament champion Richard Stockton in four sets in its first match of the day before rebounding to sweep Moravian.
Senior Megan Eiser averaged 8.07 assists per set in four tournament matches and was named to the all-tournament team for the second year in a row. Many of her assists went to Dean, who recorded a team-high 38 kills in the tournament while making only six errors for an excellent .333 hitting percentage.
“Coming into the season, we knew we had to step it up as a hitter-and-setter combo,” said Dean, the Mules’ top returning hitter. “We’ve been working hard on and off the court.”
The second-place finish is the best for Muhlenberg in a tournament since it won the 2005 Buttermaker Tournament.
“Coming in second is great,” added Dean. “Everyone is excited to keep up the momentum the rest of the season.”
