  • Karessa Nordyke, Hugoton, has signed a letter of intent to participate in track and field at Bethany College for the 2013-2014 academic year.
    Nordyke comes to Bethany from Hugoton High School where she participated in track and field all four years. Nordyke was a thrower, participating in the javelin, discus and shot put.
    In addition to track she also played basketball for one year and volleyball all four years.
    Nordyke was a member of Student Council, Future Farmers of America and National Honor Society. She was the class historian for one year, treasurer for one year and class president for two years.
     "Karessa is going to be a great fit for Bethany College and our track and field program,” Swede coach Robert Spies said. “She will compete as a thrower for the Swedes this coming season and she brings with her depth to do multiple events. I believe she will thrive with our team atmosphere as she is also a very good student and believes a great deal in team unity."
    Nordyke is the daughter of Paul and Shannon Nordyke. She has a 3.96 grade point average and plans to major in communications.
    The Bethany College Swedes compete in 18 intercollegiate sports in the Kansas Collegiate Athletic Conference (KCAC) of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA).
    Since 1902, Bethany has won 152 conference championships.
