Texas volleyball, high jump star Destinee Hooker to play volleyball in SKorea

Associated Press

AUSTIN, Texas — Destinee Hooker, the reigning indoor and outdoor national champion in the women’s high jump, has signed a contract to play professional volleyball in South Korea.

The Texas standout has given up her college track career.
Hooker won four NCAA track titles and had one season of eligibility left. She also led the Texas volleyball team to the national championship game this past season, where the Longhorns lost to Penn State.
School officials say Hooker signed with GS Caltex professional volleyball club in Seoul and has already started playing overseas.
