Munoz leads league in goals, lands all-conference first-team designation

The Michigan High School Athletic Association’s all-time leading scorer put her goal-scoring pedigree on full display at Kalamazoo College this fall.

Libby Munoz not only led the 11-8-1 Hornets with 19 goals but also the entire Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association, which tabbed the star sophomore as one of 12 all-conference first-team honorees last Thursday.

“Libby had an extraordinary attacking season,” Kalamazoo coach Bryan Goyings said. “She possesses a proven ability to be extremely efficient in and around the goal area. I continue to marvel at her toughness, composure, game intelligence and selflessness. Scoring goals in soccer is inherently hard and Libby often made it look easy.”

Perhaps most impressive about her 19-goal output was when those goals were scored. Nine were game-winning goals, the most in Division III.

Munoz, whose name appears 12 times in the MHSAA girls soccer record book, was twice named an MIAA Offensive Player of the Week this season — on Sept. 18 and Oct. 9.

The two-sport star also led Kalamazoo in assists with four this fall.

Munoz will begin basketball season against visiting Dominican on Nov. 18.

The 5-foot-5 guard finished fifth on the team in scoring as a freshman, pouring in 7.8 points per game.
