The senior hitter closed out a three-year varsity career by leading No. 1 Severna Park to a win over Northwestern for the Class 4A state championship Nov. 10 at the University of Maryland's Ritchie Coliseum. The Falcons (20-0) claimed a 25-14, 25-19, 22-25, 15-13 victory over the Jaguars from Prince George's County. Hoekstra, a captain and All-Metro first-team selection last year, dominated the title match in much the same fashion she has competed all season. She finished with 19 kills, 15 digs, two blocks and went 11-for-13 serving with one ace. For the season, she finished with 246 kills, 139 digs, 24 blocks and 39 aces as the Falcons won the program's sixth state title. Hoekstra has committed to play volleyball at Bryant University in Rhode Island.
