VERNON, Ohio - The Mount Vernon Nazarene
University women’s basketball team has

5-foot-5 guard from Pataskala, Ohio,

"Kim comes to MVNU after having a very
successful senior campaign,” said MVNU head
coach Steve Gregory. "We are happy that she
has made MVNU her college choice. She will
be a very good fit for us academically,
athletically, and spiritually.”
"Kim has had the opportunity to play with
us in open gym this spring and is a very
good perimeter shooter,” Gregory added. "She
played the point guard position in high
school and will compete at both the point
and shooting guard positions in college.”
In addition to playing basketball at
Licking County Christian, BeVier was a
two-time All-Conference selection in
volleyball. She was also an Honor Roll
"There are several reasons why I chose
MVNU,” said BeVier of her college choice.
"It has a great atmosphere and I have good
friends there. I know I will be kept on the
right track and continue to learn about God.
It is close to home and is a small campus.
MVNU has a good academic program and a good
basketball program with good competition.
Overall, I just wanted a Godly environment
and I know I will find it at MVNU.”
