Women's Basketball Adds Late Signing: Avery Bischoff
GOSHEN, Ind. - After being hired late this summer, Goshen College women's basketball head coach Stephanie Miller picked up a late recruit, signing Avery Bischoff (Petersburg, Mich.) to a national letter of intent.
A two-time all conference and all region selection, the 5-foot-5 guard starred at Summerfield High School in Michigan. She was a team captain twice in addition to being picked as team MVP after both the 2010 and 2011 seasons.
"We are all very excited in the Goshen College women's basketball program to get a player the caliber of Avery," Miller explained. "She plays with high energy and has a contagious attitude and work ethic. I have watched her push herself to become better every day and truly commit herself to the sport and her teams. I really look forward to watching her grow as an athlete and person over the next four years."
As a senior, Bischoff averaged 11 points, 3.5 steals, and four assists per game. In addition to her high school experience, she has played for the Lake Erie Lightning AAU club as well as being a two-time All Star selection at the McCracken Gold Camps.
The daughter of Lisa and Kelly Bischoff, Avery had a grade point average of just under 4.0 in high school. Academically, she has begun work on a degree in Biology with an emphasis in zoology.
"I knew I wasn't ready to give up basketball and at Goshen I most look forward to being on a team with players who care about the game as much as I do," Bischoff said of her decision to play for the Maple Leafs.
