"I'm happy to announce Ashton and Jean and Mary as our captains for this year," stated Head Coach Shelley Bauder, who enters her 25th season just 18 wins shy of 500 for her career at Moravian. "All three of them provide different yet outstanding leadership skills and I'm excited to see how they will lead our team this year."

Zacher enters the season needing just two kills to hit the 1,000 plateau, and she has added 1,144 digs, 125 service aces, 75 assists and 51 blocks in 101 career matches with the Blue and Grey.
