Personal: Full name: Haley Kostyshyn. Parents: Glen and Cathy Kostyshyn of Stoney Creek, Ontario, Canada (one sister, Brooke, and one brother, Tyler). Chose to attend Rice over Dayton, Memphis, UMass, Dartmouth, Indiana, Ohio State and Virginia Tech.
Nicky Adams on Kostyshyn: "Haley has a strong, dominant presence all over the field but she thrives in the final third. She is so comfortable with the ball at her feet, which makes her a dynamic 1 v 1 player. She has a knack for scoring goals and is very dangerous anywhere in shooting range."
Ryan High School Head Coach Josie Petitti said: "Haley is a multifaceted player who brings a special energy to the team that is infectious. Her calm nature, through even the most critical moments, and superb ball handling skills render her the team's leading scorer. Without her, we would not have been able to achieve such great success."
Haley Kostyshyn said: "I chose Rice University because it allows me to be myself both on and off the field. Through the University's high academic standards, not only can I achieve my academic dream, but I can do so while playing the game I love most! This positive, yet competitive environment allows me to bond with a group of girls that share the same passions as I do."
