UC Merced Athletics has received a generous donation from longtime campus supporter Greg Hostetler, owner of Stonefield Home of Los Banos.
The gift recognizes and supports two student-athletes from communities where Hostetler conducts business. Jade Fachin, a junior biological sciences major from Los Banos, and Jessica Pinasco, a first-year biological sciences major from Atwater, are outside hitters for the team. Pinasco was named to MaxPreps Division III All-State Volleyball Team in January 2017.
Hostetler has supported Athletics since the beginning of the program, funding the Greg and Cathie Hostetler Court — home court for UC Merced basketball and volleyball.
