He was an All-American as a junior as well and currently ranks No. 2 in career rebounds and No. 1 in blocks.
Johnston starred on Grace’s volleyball team from 2010-13. Her remarkable career landed her among Grace’s best on both sides of the net. She finished her career ranked in the top 10 for both kills and blocks. Johnston was a three-time NCCAA All-American and was honorable mention for NAIA All-American following the 2013 season.
