“We are excited to see the impact Hailey will have in our program, both on and off the field,” commented Dordt University Head Coach Alex Durbin. “Hailey is going to be a phenomenal fit here at Dordt.”

DeWitt started all 10 games and played 859 minutes in goal for the Storm during the 2020-21 season. She ranked fifth in total saves (98) in the National Junior College Athletic Association (NJCAA) and recorded one shutout. DeWitt was a second team Academic All-American (2021) and was awarded her team’s work ethic award.

“I chose to commit to Dordt because of the Christ-Centered education and the small community aspect that Dordt provides to its students,” stated DeWitt. “I’m also excited to be part of the soccer team and to contribute to the continued success of the program.”

DeWitt is the daughter of Michael and Jodi and plans to study Elementary Education at Dordt.
