Whatever happened to ... Liberty's Jelena Antic?

Disney fan Jelena at home in Serbia.
We kick off our "Where are they now?" updates with former Liberty star Jelena Antic, who played two seasons for the Lady Flames, leaving in 2011 to play pro and to be closer to home in Macedonia.

My season with Partizan just ended. We ended up as the Regional League and Serbian League champions. It was a pretty good season overall. It took me some time to get adjusted to European ball, the pro life, etc., but I'm loving it. I was the youngest player on the team, so playing older, more experienced players was a big challenge. I'm in Belgrade for individual practices right now.

I miss a whole lot of things about Liberty, mostly the whole environment, the kind people, my friends, coaches and professors. They were all a part of my life I will never forget. I talk to my host mom all the time about how I wish I could just stop by on Thursdays for lunch at Ruby Tuesdays and eat Parmesan shrimp (that's our little tradition). I miss the campus and just walking around. I do keep in touch with pretty much all the players, but the fact that we live on different continents with different time zones makes it harder to figure out when we can Skype. But I'm glad I still have great friends from Liberty, and I'm planning on visiting next summer.

Is there a player from the past you'd like us to catch up with? Let LadySwish know and we'll try and find her. Email us at
