Michelle Moraitis Inks with the Lady Pilots

The Bethel Lady Pilots are pleased to announce that Michelle Moraitis has signed a letter of intent to continue her academic and athletic career at Bethel College beginning in the fall of 2017.

Moraitis, daughter of Robert and Nanette Moraitis, is a 5’5” point guard who hails from Howell, Michigan, and was a four-year letter winner for the Hartland Eagles. As a senior, Moraitis led the team to a 22-2 overall season record that included a division, conference and district title. During her final campaign, Moraitis set a new school record by dishing out 106 total assists (4.42 per contest). For her efforts, she was named First Team All-KLAA, which made her a two-time selection having landed honorable mention honors in 2016. She also landed her team’s MVP honor following the 2016-17 season, which she coupled with her previously collected best defender honor that she earned in 2015-16.

In addition to her work on the court for the Eagles, Moraitis also played AAU for the Michigan Mystics for four years and was a four-year letter winner for the Hartland girls’ cross country and track and field programs. On the track, Moraitis found success running mid-distance and qualifying for the state meet the past two seasons. Moraitis is also a leader in the Hartland High School Bible Club and participates in Adopt-A-Family in Hartland.

“After visiting the school and spending time with the team, I knew Bethel would be a great fit for me,” noted Moraitis. “I wanted to attend a small college with a strong Christian atmosphere that would challenge me academically, spiritually and athletically. I was also very impressed with Bethel’s nursing program that could help me reach my dream of becoming a nurse.”

Moraitis is the fourth member of the Lady Pilot incoming class of 2017, joining Kelsey Brinkner (Northridge), Grace Haley (Lansing Christian) and Addie Martin (Clyde).
