Skylights volleyball coach Lisa Handley announced Wednesday the signing of Melanie Walker from San Clemente, Calif.
Walker is a 6-foot middle with experience starting for her Regional Championship and state runners-up team. She has been named twice to the Coasta Mesa Tournament and Woodbridge Classic all-tournament teams. Walker also has club experience, playing against some of the best club teams in the country, on her Saddleback Valley Volleyball Club and Los Angeles Athletic Club, Handley said.
"Melanie really impressed me when she came to visit MSU-Northern," Handley said. "She is relatively new to the game of volleyball. Her experience is mainly in basketball, but she has a love for the game and a willingness to work hard and be coached. She loved Montana and the MSU-Northern campus. She couldn't believe how green it was here compared to her hometown."
Walker was an academic team honorable mention and a student senate representative. Her love for children has her attending MSU-Northern to become a teacher in elementary education, Handley said.
