WICHITA, Kan. - The Bethel College Softball program is pleased to announce the signing of Bella Soliz for the 2017-18 school year. Soliz is a current senior at Wichita Northwest High School, where she plays centerfield for the Grizzlies.

Soliz is the daughter of Juan and Nikki Soliz. She currently has a .518 batting average this season for the Grizzlies, and also played volleyball and basketball at Northwest. Soliz will look to join the nursing program here at Bethel.

"I can't wait to play softball for Bethel," remarked Soliz. "I am excited to meet the girls and be a part of this team."

Coach Stacy Middleton had this to say about Soliz:

"It's always great to pickup a strong, versatile player from the surrounding area. She comes from a fundamentally sound program and has the opportunity to add some speed and depth to our outfield. Bella is strong in the classroom as well. We look forward to adding her to our community, campus, and program."
