COLUMBIA CITY â€” Most Columbia City volleyball fans know when Gabrielle Hazen is making her approach and the ball is in the air: the Lady Eagles are about to score a point.
At 6-foot-2, Hazen towers over the net, and her opponents. Her arms reach several feet over the net, helping her to be Columbia Cityâ€™s dominant force.
She led the team in both blocking and hitting last season as a sophomore, was named 2nd-Team All-Conference and was on the All-Area Honorable Mention team.
With all of those accolades, itâ€™s hard to imagine sheâ€™s only played volleyball for four years.
Columbia City High School awarded six players for baseball.
