After spending the first three years of her prep career at Front Range Christian School, Cornhoff spent her final year at Conifer High School. The four-year letter winner received her team’s Most Coachable Award.

When Cornhoff isn’t on the pitch, she spends her time working with kids with special needs and serving as a Sunday School teacher.

Cornoff who is planning to major in social work says, “I wanted to be in a close knit community, where it is evident that Christ is the center focus and that all sports are played in honor of Christ. I'm excited to get to know other players and developing my relationship with Christ!"

“When Alissa visited Huntington she just fit in great with the girls and the campus. Her views really match up to what Huntington’s mission is,” said Coach Burgher. “She can play on the field and in goal, so she is going to be competing at both come fall.” 
The Huntington University Foresters compete in 14 intercollegiate sports for men and women. In the past decade, Huntington has produced 53 NAIA All-America honors and 187 All-America Scholar Athlete honors. Huntington University is a comprehensive Christian college of the liberal arts offering graduate and undergraduate programs in more than 70 academic concentrations.
