The Muhlenberg volleyball team scrapped and clawed and had plenty to feel good about despite getting swept by Moravian.

The result tied the Matte Award standings for the 2011-12 year at 1-1. The Greyhounds (9-4) were making their second trip to Muhlenberg this season; in their first, they won the Buttermaker Tournament.

Even in the first set, a 25-11 loss, the Mules (3-9) did not make things easy for their Lehigh Valley rivals. Muhlenberg recorded 30 of its season-high 81 digs in the first set, with sophomore Morgan Duggan leading the way with 10.

The Mules had leads of 9-3 and 15-10 in the second set before Moravian came back to tie and eventually win, 25-22.

In the third set, it was Muhlenberg that did the rallying, coming back from an early 5-1 hole. Down to their final point at 24-22, the Mules came back to tie the score and then fought off three more match points before the Greyhounds finally won, 29-27.

Duggan finished with a career-high 23 digs to go along with 14 assists. Freshman Alyssa Schell also set a career high in digs, with 19. Senior Brooke McQueen narrowly missed a double-double with a team-high 10 kills and 9 digs.

pass from senior Renee Norton into the right side of the cage to put the Mules up 1-0 eight minutes into the game.

But that goal appeared to awaken the Fords, whose only loss this season is by one goal to No. 7 Rowan. They responded less than four minutes later and added another goal before the break before taking control in the second half.

Senior Brittany DeAngelis made a pair of defensive saves in the first half to move into a tie for second on the school’s all-time list with 15. She needs just one more to tie the career mark. Junior Kristen Dornenburg made a season-high 14 saves in goal.
