Mindi Harkema, Nicole
Billin and Karley Glass, seniors at Unity Christian High School in Hudsonville,
Michigan, signed letters of intent to play for the Trolls, beginning in
the fall. Lenarz is elated to secure the trio.
"These girls have tremendous
talent on the field and are great people off the field," Lenarz said. "They
will add a unique degree of teamwork and chemistry to our team since they've
known and played with each other throughout high school. Mindi, Nicole,
and Karley will give our roster more depth and push us closer to developing
a championship-contending team at Trinity."
Harkema has played defense
and midfield as a three-year varsity starter for the Crusaders. She has
been named all-conference and all-district each season. She earned first-team
all-state honors in 2004 after rebounding from a torn anterior cruciate
ligament injury to tally 10 goals with eight assists.
Billin, an all-conference
performer who plays forward and midfield, notched all-conference accolades
after scoring 11 goals with six assists last year. Glass shut out 12 opponents
in goal for the Crusaders in 2004. She averaged more than 4.5 saves per
game and surrendered less than one goal per contest.
"Each of them has her strengths
and will be a key contributor to our success in the years ahead," Lenarz
said. "Like our other players, they have strong Christian character and
a will to maximize their skills. It'll be fun to coach them and watch them
