In August 2018, Rachel Muisenga — a 6-0 sophomore setter/RS at Benet Academy in Lisle, Illinois — announced her verbal commitment to the Penn State Women’s Volleyball program. We noted the commitment at the time on the DigNittanyVolleyball Forum, but somehow didn’t get this posted until now. Slacker staff indeed.
But make no mistake, we’re thrilled that Rachel has committed to Penn State. In 2018, she helped lead Benet to a 36-6 record and a 3rd place finish in the Illinois Class 4A tournament.
Rachel recently moved from 1st Alliance Volleyball Club to the Adversity Volleyball Club in the Chicago area. Adversity Volleyball is run by Kyle Masterson, a Penn State Men’s Volleyball alum who played for current Penn State Women’s Volleyball assistant coach Dennis Hohenshelt on the Penn State men’s team in the late 2000s before playing several years professionally overseas. Rachel also has played for the Lions Juniors on the club circuit.
Rachel was named to the 2018 JVA Ultra Ankle Watch List 15s All National Team, which recognizes the 17 top JVA member club players in the nation graduating in 2021, and the 2018 PVB 15s Club All-American Second Team.
