Currently, Engle calls Big Bear, CA her home, but makes the two and a half hour trip to Hermosa Beach two to four times a week to train. Engle played her volleyball in college as an outside hitter for the University of Washington where she holds the school records for kills and points. During her time in Washington, she was the first Husky to be named to the All-Pac 10 team four years in a row. In 2005, Engle was named the NCAA Championship Most Outstanding Player after leading the Huskies to their first National Championship.

Engle made her AVP debut in 2009 at Panama City, FL. In 2012, Engle formed a team with Tealle Hunkus, where the duo managed finishes of fifth and sixth in two AVP events. Outside of training and playing, Engle works as a Real Estate Agent. Christal is married to AVP pro Evan Engle. Engle will be partnering with Heather Hughes for the upcoming tour season.

Favorite thing about beach volleyball: “Competing and training at the highest level!”

Favorite Event Location: “Chicago will always be my favorite until we go to Seattle :)”

Role Models: “Holly McPeak has been hands down the biggest inspiration and support for my beach volleyball career, she has taught me everything and she continues to be my biggest mentor for the game.”
