GRAND HAVEN TWP. — A pair of Grand Haven athletes made history on Tuesday when signing their national letters of intent. Gavin Jonker and Max Hartney became the first players from the Grand Haven boys volleyball program to sign to play in college. Jonker is becoming a member of the Aquinas College volleyball team and Hartney will be joining the Lawrence Tech team.
“The program is key and their academics is one of the things that stands out to me,” Jonker said about choosing Aquinas. “Their engineering program and location isn’t too far from my house which is really nice. It felt like home when I visited there.”
