Goff will continue playing at U of I Springfield

The decision to attend the University of Illinois Springfield to play softball has been the culmination of a lot of years and efforts on the field for Metro-East Lutheran’s Rachel Goff and it’s one she’s happy to have made.

Goff, who has also played select softball in the St. Louis Fusion organization since she was 12, thought UIS was the perfect fit for her future.

“It was definitely closer to home and I really liked the coaches,” Goff said. “It was really a beautiful campus. They’re definitely building their program and I look forward to helping them in the future.”

The Prairie Stars play Division II in the Great Lakes Valley Conference and finished 21-28 last season and 15-19 in the GLVC.
