“We are so excited to have Gwyn on our roster!” said Crawford. “Her volleyball IQ and determination makes her a threat on the floor. She knows the game and does it really well. Gwyn is a natural leader; she will lead our team by example.”
“I chose Goshen because of the welcoming environment, the amazing volleyball team, and the biology department!,” said Bellamy.

“We are so lucky to have Jadyn, a Goshen local, on our team!” Crawford said. “She is hardworking and willing to give 100% in all she does. Jadyn has great hands and a strong court awareness. She has a high IQ on and off the court which will be very helpful to our program.”
“I chose Goshen because it would allow me to further my academic and athletic careers in meaningful ways that also provide space to nurture and deepen my faith,” Kaufmann said.
