88. Emily Christensen, 6-4 MB, Salpointe, VBC Dinamo: Pacific
” Christensen is a long and lean 6-4 middle who is finally starting to grow into her body. A late bloomer, Christensen has gained valuable strength in the past year and has become a dominant, aggressive force at the net. With a 6-6 wingspan, she can create an imposing block for opposing attackers and her long strides help her cover an enormous amount of court in a hurry. Offensively, she has the ability to hit over most middles. Highly intelligent and a determined athlete, Christensen also is working hard to develop skills below the net. Last season was her first year playing club volleyball, so Christensen’s upside is huge, and we’re talking about a player who touches 10-4 now! She has the physical tools to become a dominant middle at the next level, both blocking and attacking. Christensen has committed to the University of the Pacific.”
