Selting Signs With NECC

It was over in a matter of moments, but it took her whole life to get there.
On Tuesday afternoon, in a school hallway that she’s walked through countless time, Elizabeth Selting sat down and finally relaxed. With pen in hand, her parents and coaches near her side, Miss Selting signed a national letter-of-intent to play volleyball for Northeast Community College in Norfolk.
The Wolfpack’s all-time career leader in kills will be taking her game to the next level when she joins the Lady Hawks volleyball team next fall to begin the next chapter of her athletic career. The daughter of Amy and Lynn Selting, Selting’s sense of accomplishment showed through on her face as she signed the letter.
On Saturday, in an exclusive interview with The Elgin Review, Selting shared her thoughts about being one of the most sought-after volleyball players in Northeast Nebraska.
“It was really special to me,” she said Saturday afternoon. “Ever since I was a little girl I’ve always wanted to play volleyball. I really love the sport a lot.”
She expressed her appreciation to family, fans, players and coaches who have been with her along the way. She was quick to mention the support of her mom, Amy, as being very supportive of her desire to play the sport and become one of the best players in the state. That was affirmed Sunday when the Omaha World-Herald announced that she, along with teammate Jordan Mescher, had been selected to the Class D-1 All-State First Team.
Selting said she’s looking forward to playing at the collegiate level. After visiting with Coach Amanda Schultze, Selting will continue to play the position of outside hitter which she has done during her career as a member of the Wolfpack.
“When I visited there (NECC) I really liked the campus and it was close to home.
“Getting down to the state tournament this year was a ‘dream’ come true,” she said. I love my team, I love everything we’ve been through, especially the other seniors. I’m really grateful for everybody.”
