Former Northern Highland outside hitter Esmae Oehler has made a big splash for the Muhlenberg College volleyball program in her first week of playing as a freshman. Oehler was one of the standout players this Spring in New Jersey at the high school level, leading her Highlander team to an early season win against eventual #1 ranked team Immaculate Heart Academy.
She had a superlative career at the high school level and is off to an amazing start as a freshman in college. In the Mules first 4 games, Oehler has smashed a team leading 36 kills as well as 26 digs for a Muhlenberg team that is currently 2-2 at D3. She was instrumental in the teams wins against Ramapo and Hunter.
Esmae shared with us “My first couple of weeks being a part of this team have been fun, a great learning experience, and competitive. I’ve learned so much from this group of girls, and I cannot wait to continue to grow as a team.”
This Friday, the Mules will be home at Memorial Hall and participating in the Buttermaker Tournament where they will face 4 different opponents over Friday and Saturday. Friday, they will face Cedar Crest and Gallaudet and Saturday they will take on Penn State Abington and Neumann.
We expect games to covered live at https://www.centennialconference.tv/muhlenbergcollege/
