(Atlantic) Chad Christensen has signed a letter of intent to play baseball at North Iowa Area Community College next season.
Christensen has started at shortstop for Atlantic ever since his eighth grade year. His best season so far in high school came as a sophomore when he hit .358. He says NIACC was always his top choice and playing college baseball is something he has wanted to do ever since little league. Christensen told the media he loved the NIACC campus and knew he would get an opportunity to play right away.
Travis Hergret, head coach for NIACC says they are excited about Chad's potential development. They plan to play him at third base at least for his first season. They are coming off of a 37-21 season last year and coach Hergret says they have a strong class of recruits coming in. He stated that the thing he like's most is how hard of a worker Christensen is.
