News and notes about Muhlenberg athletics
Muhlenberg College has hired Stewart Arevalo, who spent the last two years turning around the Cedar Crest College program, as its head volleyball coach. He replaces Mike Krause, who resigned at the close Stewart Arevalo of the 1998 season. Cedar Crest improved its record from 4-19 to 9-14 in 1998, Arevalo's second year at the helm, and qualified for the Pennsylvania Athletic Conference (PAC) playoffs for the first time in school history. For his success with such a young squad, which included 10 first-year players, Arevalo was named coach of the year by the PAC. A native of Argentina, Arevalo played on the Argentinean Junior National Under-16 team and was an outside hitter for Club Olympia of Buenos Aires from 1992 to 1993. He served as an assistant coach for the Cross Court Junior Olympic Program last spring.
