As the Panthers’ goalie, Kik has racked up a collection of awards which includes First Team All-Conference and All-District honors. The All-State Honorable Mention pick has also been named First Team All-Region.

In addition to playing soccer for Western, Kik has also established herself as a Panther basketball and volleyball player. The three-sport athlete spends her off season playing club soccer for Rush Central.

“Korynne is going to be a great fit on our team,” commented Coach Burgher. “She has visited the campus and the team multiple times and it already feels like she is on the roster. She is a great girl with a great personality and I know is going to mix well with our current players.”

“Korynne is going to challenge right away. She has the talent and work rate to be a very good keeper. From the day she signed with us I know she has been training to play an integral role on our team.”

Kik will graduate from Western with high honors and as a member of the National Honor Society. She is leaning towards a major in either elementary education or pre-med and is excited to experience all HU has to offer. “I chose Huntington because I wanted a place where my faith would grow and where I could also be challenged academically. I also chose Huntington because I knew I would make great friendships and have fun.”

Korynne is the daughter of Tom and Lisa Kik from Spring Arbor, Michigan. 
The Huntington University Foresters compete in 14 intercollegiate sports for men and women. In the past decade, Huntington has produced 53 NAIA All-America honors and 187 All-America Scholar Athlete honors.
