Athletes of the Week

For contests between September 12 and September 18

Female Athlete of the Week – Nicolette Miller, Women’s Soccer

Miller scored the first three goals in Muhlenberg’s 4-0 win over McDaniel on Saturday. It was the second hat trick of the senior forward’s career; she became just the sixth player in program history to record multiple hat tricks. Miller leads the Mules with four goals and nine points this season; she currently ranks in the top 10 in school history in every offensive statistical category.

 

Male Athlete of the Week – Dan Deighan, Football

Deighan threw for a career-high 282 yards, including 226 in the fourth quarter alone, to help engineer Muhlenberg’s dramatic 34-26 come-from-behind win over McDaniel. He connected on a 26-yard pass on a fake punt that eventually led to a touchdown on the first drive of the final quarter and added a pair of 40-yard touchdown passes to help the Mules erase a 19-point deficit in the final 15 minutes. It was their largest comeback since 1980.
