Ally Offerdahl wins her first ever MIAA honor

Austin Miller is named MIAA Defensive Player of the Week

Austin Miller was awarded MIAA Defensive Player of the Week for his walk-off touchdown that capped off the thrilling finish to the Mules and Hornets game. The Mules trailed the Hornets by six with just 12 seconds remaining in the game when Kolesen Crane recovered an incomplete lateral pass. Crane returned the fumble nearly the length of field before lateralling to avoid being tackled. The lateral hit the ground and Miller recovered the lateral for the game-winning touchdown.

Soccer clinches all three MIAA awards

Baylie Edwards was named Offensive Player of the Week, Kayla Hamner won Defensive player of the Week, and Ana Dilkes earned MIAA Goalkeeper of the Week.
