Hard-hitting Hazen: Columbia City volleyball player controls the frontline

July 6, 2012

COLUMBIA CITY — 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 City’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, it’s hard to imagine she’s only played volleyball for four years.
