2006 Season Review:

Kate Haggerty
Haggerty was ninth in the CC in hitting percentage and finished her career with 969 kills.
The Muhlenberg volleyball team ordered new jerseys for 2006, but due to a mixup they did not arrive until late in the season. Unfortunately, the team’s best play also took a while in arriving. The Mules won three of their last four matches to finish with a 10-15 record.

With five seniors and seven freshmen on the roster, Muhlenberg used various combinations of players throughout the season, meshing veteran experience with untested talent. The team won its pool with a pair of five-game victories at Moravian’s season-opening Greyhound Premiere Invitational, but then dropped nine of its next 11.

The Mules won back-to-back matches against Bates and Emmanuel at the MIT Invitational, but then dropped five of six to fall out of Centennial Conference playoff contention.

The two wins against Moravian were among several marathon matches in which
Monica Sella
Sella’s 241 career blocks were good for fourth on the Mules’ all-time list.
Muhlenberg played. At the Buttermaker Tournament, the Mules and Mary Washington hooked up in one of the longest games in Division III history, with the Eagles winning 44-42 en route to a five-game win. Muhlenberg also forced a fifth game on the road against CC co-leader McDaniel, taking the fourth game 33-31.

Co-captains Kate Haggerty and Monica Sella had solid seasons. Haggerty earned All-CC honors for the second time in her career after leading the team in kills per game (2.95) and hitting percentage (.254). Sella had a team-high 68 blocks. Haggerty (21) and Sella (14) both recorded career highs in kills in their final home match, while the other three seniors – Kristin Caparro, Julia Lamborn and Courtney Williams – contributed to the Mules setting a school record with 68 kills in the four-game win against Swarthmore.

Junior Megan Young (libero) and sophomore Megan Eiser (setter) nicely filled positions left open by graduated seniors. Young set schools records for digs per game (5.23) and digs in a match (45), and Eiser led the team in assists and was second in digs and third in blocks and aces.

Sophomore Danielle Losonci and freshmen Christina Cangelosi, Phylicia Lee and Liz Leslie all made their first varsity impact.
