Lions’ Muller earns All-State


NORTH STONINGTON — Whatever sting Wheeler High girls’ lacrosse player Jess Muller might have felt being left off the ECC Small Division first-team was probably mitigated by her second-team All-State selection.

The senior midfielder scored 55 goals this season and had to settle for ECC-Small honorable mention, but still got the Class S All-State nod.

“I was surprised, but it was just kind of the way it went,” Wheeler coach Dan Rahl said. “Maybe it’s because she was on an 0-15 team and other coaches in the ECC really didn’t game plan for her because they weren’t all that worried about the game.”

Muller had nine assists to go with her 55 goals. Her 130 career goals put her third on the Lions’ all-time list behind Ashley Iorio (162) and Morgan Breidinger (184).

“It’s just her third season playing lacrosse,” Rahl said. “She’s such a good athlete, she’s really smooth.

“Her (lacrosse) skills have definitely progressed. She protects the ball better and uses her left hand a lot more. She’s going to Southern Connecticut University and I think she’s going to play lacrosse there.”

Rahl said that Muller’s performance against Norwich Free Academy May 3, in which she scored a season-high seven goals, stood out as her best performance of the year.

“We were down 7-1 like 12 or 13 minutes into the game. She helped us come back and we made a game of it. We lost (13-11), but she had nine points (seven goals, two assists) in a game where we scored 11 goals.”

Muller’s selection to the All-State team marked the third straight year that a Wheeler player garnered an All-State award.

Iorio was second-team All-State in 2013 and first-team in 2012.

Muller earned first-team ECC Small Division first-team honors as a junior.

Junior Sarah Volack was Wheeler’s sportsmanship award winner.
