Stanton Volleyball Standout Liz Christensen has signed with Northeast. Christensen transferred to Stanton from Battle Creek midway through her high school career. “I think transferring to Stanton was the best decision I ever made. It was just the best feeling ever to come on this team and be a part of something way bigger than myself. The minute I walked into the gym I just felt like I was a part of the family, and going down to the State Tournament I couldn’t of been on a better team because these girls are my sisters. And it’s going to be super hard to move on playing Volleyball without them, but this team definitely prepared me to go further on, and showed me what a team really means.”
Christensen helped lead the Mustangs to two 3rd place finishes at State.
She currently holds the Stanton ace serve season record with 72.
Christensen also plays Basketball and runs Track for the Mustangs.
She says Northeast seemed like the right fit. “Well I had a few campus visits there, and I have talked to the Coach a couple times, and I just love the campus, and like it’s close to home so I also like that aspect of it. And the coach is super good, she knows exactly what she’s talking about, and I went to a couple games and I loved the team aspect of it, they’re all about together. And I love the Academic standpoint of it.”
Christensen says she played right side hitter and back row at Stanton, and will be a six-rotation player at Northeast.
She plans to major in Art Education at Northeast.
Christensen is the daughter of Keith and Teresa Christensen.
