Back in July, van Lith was one of 15 female student-athletes who entered Name, Image and Likeness (NIL) endorsement agreements with adidas on the 50th anniversary of Title IX.
The company said it would use NIL opportunities to further promote equality initiatives that would make sports accessible to all people.
