Christal Engle has had an excellent career in both indoor and outdoor volleyball. The Washington native performed exceptionally during her four years at the University of Washington. She became the first four-time AVCA All-American in the school's history. Engle also held many records, including: career leader in kills and points, third in aces, seventh in digs, and 10th in total blocks. She also won the NCAA Championship Most Outstanding Player after leading the team to a national title in 2005.
Engle transitioned into international play before qualifying for the AVP Pro Tour in Panama City, FL in 2009. Compiling a number of wins with a number of different partners on Tour, Engle cites one of her biggest beach volleyball victories as the win in Salt Lake City, UT when she and her partner upset Jen Kessy/April Ross, the 2012 London Olympics Silver Medalists and the number 1 ranked team in the country.
