The Bethel College women's soccer program announced today the signing of three high school seniors who will be competing for the Pilots this fall.
The NAIA announced on Friday that 588 women's soccer student-athletes have been named 2015 Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athletes. Among those honored were Bethel's Taylor Bell, Lauren Kindinger and Jeslyn Lewton. In order to be nominated by an institution's head coach or sports information director, a student-athlete must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and must have achieved a junior academic status.
Having already been eliminated from contention in the Crossroads League Tournament, the Bethel Pilots headed into Saturday's matchup against (RV) Marian knowing it would be the last contest of the season. As the underdogs, few expected BC to bring a victory back to Mishawaka; however, the Pilots put together a great performance for their final appearance and etched a 2-1 victory over the Knights, giving the team their first win since early September. Bethel finished the campaign with a 3-13-2 record and a 1-7-1 record in league play. Marian drops to 11-7 on the season, holds a 5-4 record in league play, and will likely finish fourth in the final league standings.
After 110 minutes of soccer, the Bethel Pilots and the Goshen Maple Leafs found themselves deadlocked at 1-1. The tie is Bethel's second of the season, leaving them with a 2-13-2 record and a 0-7-1 mark in league play. Goshen moves to 4-11-2 on their campaign and 0-5-2 in the Crossroads League.
