Add first team all-conference to Elizabeth Field’s honors playing volleyball for Wichita State.
The former Santa Rosa high great made Missouri Valley Conference first team as a senior after earning a pair of second team selections.
Field helped Wichita State to a seventh straight NCAA Division I tournament appearance, where the Shockers fell to Kansas. A year earlier Field again was a top power hitter as Wichita State enjoyed the program’s greatest season, reaching the NCAA Sweet 16.
On the season in the Missouri Valley she was third in percentage of kills for points and among the conference leaders in blocks.
Starting since her freshman season Field steadily moved up the career records ladder. After finishing third in kills this season, Field is sixth in the Wichita State career attacks ranking. Second in blocks this season Field is seventh all-time for the Shockers. Field also has played the third most sets ever for Wichita State.
Once raw and reserved, Field blossomed into a polished college player with a competitive streak.
Staying in the game was her goal. Field has been selected to play for the Heart of America Havoc, a member of the Premier Volleyball League, a professional indoor women’s league sanctioned by USA Volleyball.
