GOSHEN — Two Elkhart County seniors are a part of the volleyball recruiting class for Goshen College head coach Jim Routhier.
Bethany Christian's Hanna Hochstetler and Northridge's Brooke Maes have committed to the Maple Leafs.
Hochstetler finished her career among Bethany Christian's all-time leaders in a number of categories, including finishing third all time in kills with 741 and second in solo blocks with 81. She posted 216 kills and 39 solo blocks as a senior on way to academic all-state honors for coach Lois Stoltzfus-Mast.
"With Hanna's size at 6-foot-1, she will be a big asset to our program," Routhier said. "She brings a vibrant positive attitude and limitless potential. She has a great work ethic and is a very strong student as well."
A defensive specialist, Maes helped the Jodie Steele-coached Raiders to a 20-6 record as a senior. She was given the team's mental attitude award and named a scholar-athlete.
Maes, the daughter of GC assistant softball coach Mark Maes, will also compete for the Maple Leaf softball team in the spring.
"Brooke is a good defensive player that comes from a very good program at Northridge," Routhier said. "She has been coached well in the basics and will fit into our program very well. She is an outstanding student as well as a good volleyball player."
