Hood signs with Culver-Stockton
Mt. Pleasant’s Linzie Hood signed her letter of intent to attend Culver-Stockton College and play volleyball there in the fall.
Hood, a senior at MPCHS, said that there were a number of reasons that she chose Culver-Stockton.
“It has a really, really nice campus and awesome student support for sports,” she said. “The volleyball coach is awesome — she used to be in the Olympics. And they have my major.”
She plans to double major in psychology and Spanish, and says that the thing she looks forward to the most about playing volleyball at the next level is improving her game.
