                           The
                           BUTTERMAKERS
                            The 1990 Muhlenberg volleyball team was a very 
                          young but promising group. Comprised mostly of fresh-
                          men, they worked extremely hard but met with lots of 
                            frustration and disappointments during the early part 
                              of the season.
                               In an effort to keep their morale up, and to point 
                                  out the necessity of continuing to work hard and 
                                  thus ultimately achieve success, Coach Frank 
                                  Marino told them the following story:

     There was once a group of frogs who happened upon a large vat of milk. 
   Seeing an opportunity for fun, they jumped into the vat and began to frolic. 
   Unfortunately, the edge of the vat was shaped in a curved way that allowed for 
   easy entry but impossible exit.
     The frogs swam frantically about and tried hard to escape from the vat. Even-
   tually all but one frog grew exhausted, sank to the bottom and perished.
     The remaining frog continued to kick and kick until the milk solidified and 
   was turned to butter. The frog was therefore able to climb out of the vat and 
   survive.

     The obvious moral of the story was if you keep kicking and trying, you will 
   eventually succeed.
     That group of freshmen went on to set the College record for wins, and their 
   record still stands. Further, of the seven who were freshmen at that time, five 
   made Deans’ List every semester and three were Phi Beta Kappa.
     The group came to be known as the “Buttermakers” and established traditions 
   of excellence and pride which succeeding teams strive to maintain. The program 
   holds a tournament every year named in their honor.
