Heading into her final season, Quinn has been a three-year varsity starter for the Falcons. The two-time All-Conference and All-District pick has led her team in goals scored the past two years and was named Most Valuable Player as a junior.

She has played club for the Georgetown Rangers and the United Soccer Athletes.

Quinn is also a member of FCS’s basketball team and has been involved in a variety of other activities throughout her prep career including her youth group, the school’s chorale and the Chamber singers. She has also received Freedom’s Physical Education award and the GR Press Salutes.

“I am grateful that God has provided a way for me to attend a Christian University,” said Quinn. “It took me awhile, but I finally realized that as long as I was in the Word that there was not a ‘wrong choice.’ I knew I wanted somewhere where I would really be stretched academically and more importantly spiritually and HU does just that."

"I am so psyched to be a part of the soccer team! It is something I've dreamed about since I was a little girl. I'm also super excited to see the different ministry opportunities God will unfold that I will have the pleasure of being a part of."

Coach Burgher is equally excited to have Quinn join his team, “Bethany is just one of those girls you know is going to strengthen the program in a magnitude of ways. She has a real positive attitude and a genuine relationship with Christ, I really feel like she is going to help lead this team spiritually.”

“Playing-wise she competed very well with the current girls we have. She is a goal scorer in high school and I am confident that it will continue at Huntington.”

Quinn plans to major in exercise science. She is the daughter of Tim and Deborah Quinn of Hudsonville, Mich. 
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. Huntington University is a comprehensive Christian college of the liberal arts offering graduate and undergraduate programs in more than 70 academic concentrations. U.S.News & World Report ranks Huntington among the best colleges in the Midwest.
