Hobbs Named to SEC Good Works Team
BATON ROUGE — LSU student-athlete Kristen Hobbs was named to the second annual Southeastern Conference Softball Good Works Team, it was announced by the league office on Monday.
The sophomore from Royal Palm Beach, Fla., is a representative on the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, where she is involved in many community service projects and was selected as an alternate to participate in the 2005 NCAA Leadership Conference.
Hobbs helped coordinate a student-athlete talent show that raised money for Robyn DesOrmeaux, an LSU women’s soccer player diagnosed with a rare form of cancer.
In addition, the catcher helps with the annual Christmas Toy Drive, which provides underprivileged children with gifts for the holidays through Catholic Community Services.
Hobbs also helps to organize the annual Halloween BOOzar in October, which allows children the opportunity to trick-or-treat in a safe environment, while meeting and participating in activities with LSU student-athletes from all sports.
The SEC sponsors Good Works Teams for all 20 league sponsored sports. The Good Works Team looks to highlight an athlete from each school who gives back to her community with superior service efforts.
