More from her soon-to-be volleyball coach at Williston State College, Chelsea Hinck:When ask how she found Ellie: “I watched Ellie briefly in her junior season at WTCS and immediately noticed her impact on the court. Picking up and scouting her live via NFHS Live Streams, I knew she could potentially be a prospect for our program here at Williston State. Ellie filled out a recruiting form through our Athletics website AND sent me an email, and I then knew her high interest with Teton Volleyball. We met after one of our home matches in The Well and it all started from that point on to get her here on campus.”
What about Ellie makes you excited to have her join the WSC Tetons? “I am thrilled to say that her instant ability to connect with the team will bring high potential in her freshman year at WSC. She will bring a new and positive outlook to my program. Ellie shines greatly in the classroom and on the court which will continue to set great standards for Teton Volleyball and what our program is all about.”
