Bethany grad aids Hoosiers' title run

GOSHEN — Sophomore Femi Hollinger-Janzen is part of a championship team as the Indiana University men’s soccer team won the Big Ten tournament title with a 1-0 win over Michigan State.

The Bethany Christian High School graduate tried to score for the Hoosiers on a header after a crossing pass from senior Harrison Peters (Zionsville) but the MSU goalie stopped the attempt.

Indiana (8-11-2) earns the Big Ten’s automatic bid for the NCAA National Tournament. The 48-team field will be announced today.
