STEPHENVILLE (May 10, 2017) — Liz Pack is taking her game on to the next level after signing a commitment letter Wednesday morning with Austin College.
A member of NCAA Division III, Austin College was 19-8 overall last season, placing third in the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference with a league mark of 10-4.
Pack, a post player for perennial power Stephenville, helped the Honeybees to the Region I-4A tournament last season. They defeated Brownwood for an area championship and survived a tough rematch for a third victory over neighborly and district rival Glen Rose in the regional quarterfinals to move within two steps of the state tournament before being eliminated by Levelland. It was Stephenville’s third regional tournament appearance in five years and followed their eighth consecutive area title, all under head coach Alan Thorpe.
Pack was surrounded by family, friends, favorite educators, and of course, her coaches and teammates for the signing in the foyer of SHS, where cookies, cupcakes and other refreshments were served to celebrate her achievement.
