    Bethel signs
    first recruit
    Bethel College women's soccer coach Anthony Turini signed his first recruit for the 2014 season, Jessica Krestine of Blue Valley High School.
    Krestine, a defender, helped lead Blue Valley to the regional finals, falling to eventual Class 6A state champion Blue Valley Northwest. Her team allowed just three goals last season.
    "Jessica comes from a strong high school program and plays for a great club team" Turini said. "She is an outstanding student that will excell both academically and athletically while she is at Bethel. We could not be more excited to add Jessica to the women's soccer family."
    "I felt like this college and campus would be a good fit for me," Krestine said. "Felt like home."
    Krestine intends to major in athletic training at Bethel.
