GHS Girls’ Basketball Coach Lenny Krebs wrote the following about Olivia and her impact on the GHS Basketball program:

“Every once in a while a player comes along that changes the course of a program. Olivia is one of those players. Olivia has been one of the biggest impact players I have had in my time at Goshen. She is capable of single-handedly impacting a game in many ways. She is a dominating post player who is a difficult match up because of her strength and ability to post up and finish.

Olivia has worked hard to improve her game each year and put herself in position to play college basketball at Anderson University. I am excited to see what the future has in store for Olivia as she embarks on this life-changing journey. Coach Shade (Anderson University) is getting an amazing player and I have no doubt Coach Shade will continue to develop her. Olivia has not allowed many personal setbacks to prevent her from achieving her dream. The perseverance she has shown has been amazing. I am so proud of Olivia and all she has overcome.”

GHS Girls’ Basketball Coach Lenny Krebs wrote the following about Tahya and her contributions to the GHS basketball program:

“Tahya has been a great addition to the Goshen Girls’ Basketball program the last two years. Little did we know when she moved here that we were getting such a competitive player. Tahya has worked hard over the last two years to improve her game and put herself in position to achieve her dream and play college basketball. Bethel is getting a lockdown defender who is also capable of contributing on the offensive end of the floor.

I am so proud of Tahya and not only the player she has made herself, but also the young lady she has become. There is no doubt in my mind that Tahya’s best playing days are ahead of her. I am excited for Tahya, as she sets out on a new chapter in her life. I look forward to watching Tahya continue to grow athletically, academically, and spiritually in her time at Bethel.”
