Welcome to Bulldog Country

A total of 12 incoming freshmen have ofcially signed their letter of intent to become a Bulldog athlete. The athletes range from women’s golf, men’s golf and women’s volleyball, with both golf teams adding three to their roster and volleyball adding the remaining six.

The new Bulldogs come from different areas both in-state and out of state. More than half are non Michigan natives, and most are from surrounding states such as Illinois, Indiana and Ohio. Some new Bulldogs will travel a little farther, as one is from Minnesota and another is from Kentucky.

The women’s golf team picked up Abigail Grevel, Hallie Boles and Karina VanDuinen. The men’s team acquired Nathan Kraynyk, Tanner Moore and Trent Barth. Finally, the volleyball team added Ally Barkhaus, Lauren Cox, Emily Kinney, Jessica Leer, Kira Merkle and Kristina Welter.

On top of the already impressive outing the Bulldog football team had during the 2018 season, the awards keep on coming in, this time as seven Bulldogs were named to the Don Hansen’s Football Gazette All-Super Region Three team.

Among the seven Bulldogs are junior quarterback Jayru Campbell, senior offensive linemen Nic Sawyer and Devon Johnson, sophomore linebacker Sam Heyboer, junior safety Delon Stephenson, junior defensive end Austin Edwards and junior cornerback Adrian Green.

These Bulldogs were selected on behalf of all teams in the Region Three for their dominant play during the course of the season. The Bulldogs led the first team with a total of five players, as well as Campbell being awarded the Super Region Three Offensive Player of the Year.
