The Uniform Project – Volleyball

The Uniform Project - VolleyballThe Muhlenberg volleyball team had a very successful season in 2013, winning 20 matches and reaching the Centennial Conference championship match. The Mules also had a noteworthy season from the standpoint of uniforms, sporting at least five different uniform types during the season (“old” black and red jerseys, new black jerseys and red and white libero tops).

The players on Muhlenberg’s first varsity volleyball team in 1979 wore jerseys with pinstriped sleeves. The program has been through multiple style changes since, ranging from collared shirts to mesh shirts to long-sleeved shirts, from the name on the front to the name on the back, and from loose-fitting running shorts to tight-fitting biker shorts.

Volleyball is the latest sport to be highlighted in the Uniform Project. Previous sports were track and fieldfield hockey, men’s soccer, baseball and women’s soccer. Next Thursday we’ll have the latest in the series.
