Voskuil and Schoonveld are among five Academic All-District® honorees from District 6 that includes schools from Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota.
Together, they helped the Flying Dutch post an unbeaten record and finish No. 1 in the D3hoops.com national rankings for the second consecutive season. Hope went 16-0 this winter and repeated as Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association champions.
