Athlete of the Week: Muriell Thrower - November 6th

Posted: Updated:

With a bump, set and spike, Muriell Thrower is the total package for the Evangel Eagles volleyball team.  

"She's somebody that people kind of once she gets going she take her lead and we all can become unstoppable," said Meghan Fisher, first year head volleyball coach at Evangel.

Thrower, a junior outside hitter, was instrumental in Evangel's back to back district championship win. At first glance she does not display the stature of a typical volleyball player but don't let her lack of height confuse you.

"Everybody says I can jump pretty high," said Thrower. "I can't really see myself but people say I have huge hops. As the height I am, I'm pretty short for a volleyball player but I have some hops."

Thrower also runs track at Evangel.
