“We are excited to welcome Josie to the soccer program. Josie has phenomenal work ethic and tenacious on defense. She works hard on the field and we look to having her competitive nature in our program come August,” said Dordt soccer coach Alex Durbin.

Byl earned all-conference honorable mention honors as a sophomore and has played midfielder at Unity.
