Chris Enger
Christine “Chris” Enger arrived at Alcala Park in 1989-90 and made an immediate impact on the USD women’s basketball program. The 6’4” center was one of the best centers in the nation. She earned First Team All-WCC honors and was selected the WCC Freshman of the Year. Following her freshman year, she was chosen to compete in the 1990 Olympic Festival. By the time she finished her career in 1993, Chris had accumulated a long list of athletic and academic honors.

For her Torero career she was a three-time First Team All-WCC selection; a two-time selection to the WCC All-Academic Team; a four-time WCC Scholar-Athlete, and a member of the 1993 WCC All-Tournament Team after leading the team to its first NCAA Tournament berth. Additionally, she was team captain for the 1992-1993 season.

At the time of her graduation, the USD women's basketball record section was filled with Chris' accomplishments. Enger’s game was defense, her specialty was blocking shots. In her rookie campaign she set USD records for blocks in a game (12, vs. Gonzaga) and rebounds (24, vs. Portland), both still WCC records. She left USD as the all-time leader in career rebounding (831) and blocked shots (372) and was third all-time in scoring (1,187 points). She also held single season records for rebounding (278, '92- '93), rebounding average (9.9, '92- '93), field goal percentage (.580, '89-'90) and blocked shots (137, '92-'93). Chris led the nation in blocked shots her senior year with 137 (4.9 per game) and her career average of 3.88 blocks per game ranked first for a number of years in the NCAA record books.

After graduation in 1993 with a degree in English, Chris earned her teaching credential from USD while a graduate assistant for the Toreros. She would then play four years of professional basketball in Ipswich, England. During her four years in England she had the opportunity to go into schools and sports centers around Suffolk introducing and coaching basketball to over 500 boys and girls ages 8-18. Most of the kids had zero to no experience in the sport and some schools didn’t even have baskets.

Enger was inducted into USD’s Chet and Marguerite Pagni Family Athletic Hall of Fame in 2001. In 2010 she was one of nine former Toreros honored on the commemorative 25th Anniversary Team of 50 student-athletes to celebrate 25 years of the West Coast Conference sponsoring women’s athletics.

A high school all-state performer at Vista High School in Vista, California, she is currently in her 18th year of teaching at Thompson Middle School in Murrieta where she has taught primarily 7thgrade Language Arts. In 2009 her colleagues named her Teacher of the Year.
