INA, Ill. (May 3, 2013) - It takes a special athlete to switch sports at the college level. Kendra Goss is one of them. She has decided to leave the volleyball program at John A. Logan College and signed Friday with Rend Lake College Softball Head Coach Dave Ellingsworth.
The daughter of Eddie and Rhoda Goss of Marissa, Ill., said it's time for a change of sport and likes her decision. She hopes to play center field for the Lady Warriors next season. She will join fellow Marissa High School products, sisters Abbie and Ashley Lehman, on the team in the fall. Abbie is a utility player who hit .224 as a freshman this spring for Rend Lake. Ashley is an incoming freshman pitcher.
"Coach [Ellingsworth] was really nice and I really wanted to come play here," Goss said.
The 19-year-old Goss is 5-10 and Ellingsworth likes what she brings.
"She is a college-level outfielder," he said. "The fall is where we figure out what everybody's role is going to be. She's got a good arm, she closes on the ball well and she can hit."
He said he has a lot of respect for former Marissa High Head Coach Anne Trieb.
"Anne is really high on Kendra and I value her opinion."
The Lady Warriors finished 25-26 overall this season, including a 1-2 postseason record. The team was 12-18 in the Great Rivers Athletic Conference.
