Ah, the qualifier. Mueller is certainly not scary. Off the field, that is.
With that, she’s a monster, compiling the 190 best team attacks and 191 digs to go with 20 blocks last season while also being named District 20-6A’s most valuable co-player. This season, she’s enjoying another stellar campaign, with a team record of 337 kills with 372 digs and 32 blocks.
So, yes, opposing teams find Mueller quite scary.
“When I’m on this pitch I’m ready to play,” said Mueller, known to lose her voice often after games because of her demonstrative screams during games. “I’m ready to give it my all and give it my all. A hundred percent effort has always come easily. I’m super competitive.”
Mueller attributes his success to his support system last year.
Her parents inspire her to become a better player every day and always encourage her to push her limits.
âI am constantly working to improve myself,â Mueller said.
On the court, it has become more versatile. The biggest growth from his freshman year in college as a freshman to his sophomore was the ability to do more for the team and embrace his rapid rise as a team leader.
âI was able to improve my game in all aspects,â said Mueller.
Mueller knows this junior season is important for recruiting.
On the court, she changed her hitting form to get more power on her swing by opening up more on the ball and engaging more of the trunk and hips, instead of just her shoulder, to achieve smoother movement. .
âIt sounds like a little bit of pressure,â Mueller said. “I know I will have to take a step back before I move forward, and it’s scary to know that I will have to do that in my big recruiting season, but I know that’s what I have to do . ”
