Stanton Volleyball Standout Bree Burtwhistle has signed with Midland. Burtwhistle says this year’s Mustang Senior Class made a significant impact. “We’ve been playing together since 3rd grade except for Liz (Christensen). She came in junior year. And I think just playing together we’ve had a really good impact like getting everyone to come together as a team and be there for the team. And I think that’s one major factor of how we got everyone on the same page of wanting the same end goal.”
Burtwhistle was part of a Stanton program that went to State all four years of her high school career, winning a State Title in 2016.
She also plays Basketball and runs Track for the Mustangs.
Burtwhistle says she’s had guidance from her Mom and High School Coach, Tracy Kuester-Burtwhistle. “As a lot of people know my Mom played at the next level. So it’s kind of nice kind of like having someone that’s been at that stage in their life giving me advice and that. And I’m just excited…I really like Midland, everything about it. They have super nice facilities and everything like that. I just feel really welcome there.”
Burtwhistle was an outside hitter and setter for the Mustangs, and holds the school record for most set assists in a season with 594, and this season broke the career set assists record with 2181, and the school record for most career ace serves with 217.
Burtwhistle says she will play setter for the Warriors and plans to major in Exercise Science at the University.
