Senior Cassie Muzzonigro (Gibsonia, Pa.) set the Providence College volleyball career digs record on Sunday, September 30, versus UMBC. The previous record of 1,599 career digs was held by Sarah Katinger '02.
As a freshman in 2009, Muzzonigro led the Friars with 341 digs, the most by a freshman player since 2006. The following year Muzzonigro led the team in digs again, with 462, currently the fifth-highest single season total all-time. She played in all 33 matches and was named to the Friar Classic All-Tournament Team and earned a spot on the America East Fall Honor Roll.
Muzzonigro recorded a personal best 511 digs during her junior season to lead the Friars for the third-consecutive year. Her mark currently sits as the second-highest single season total all-time, behind the all-time record of 627, set by Amanda Little in 2005. Earlier this season, Muzzonigro was named to the All-Tournament Team at the Bucknell University Tournament.
"Cassie has been the heart of our defense for the last four years," said Head Coach Margot Royer-Johnson. "She truly gives 100% on the court all of the time - in practice, in games and as a teammate."
Over the course of her career, Muzzonigro has recorded 25 games of 20 or more digs and has a personal record of 32 digs in one match.
