SHREVEPORT—Centenary volleyball coach Jenny Hazelwood has announced the signings of Amanda Christoffersen and Stephanie Hobaugh to National Letters of Intent. The duo will join the Ladies roster in the fall and will help bolster a team that lost only one senior.


Christoffersen is a 5’8” setter from Rosenberg, Texas, and Lamar Consolidated High School. She was named the District 24-4A Setter of the Year in both 2005 and 2006 and was also selected to the All-Area First Team both seasons. Recently she was named to the 2006 All-State Team. Christoffersen led her teams to the playoffs on multiple occasions which included two District Championships and a Bi-District Championship. In addition, she has been among the Houston Chronicle Greater Houston Area Volleyball Leaders in assists, digs, and aces since her sophomore year.


“Amanda is an outstanding setter that comes to us from one of the top club teams in the Houston area,” said Hazelwood. “Her experience and training will be a strong asset to the program.”


Hobaugh, a 5’10” outside hitter from League City, Texas, is currently attending Clear Creek High School. She has accumulated 175 kills, 165 digs, and 56 blocks while being named first team All-District 24-5A. She also earned the Team Spirit Award twice, was selected to the Kingwood All-Tournament Team and is also a member of the All-District and All-State All-Academic Teams.


“I am really excited to have Stephanie joining our team. She is a very consistent player and looks to make a big contribution right away,” said Hazelwood.


The signings of Christoffersen and Hobaugh are the first early signees for the Centenary volleyball program since Hazelwood took over in 2002. Three of Hazelwood’s teams in her five years at the helm qualify for the third and fourth-most wins in a single season since the program began in 1985.
