TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida State University women’s basketball
Head Coach Sue Semrau has announced the signing of Petra Hofmann, a 5-8
point guard from Cowley County (KS) Community College, to a a National
Letter of Intent to play for the Seminoles.
Hofmann, who hails from Pecs (Paytch), Hungary, was a two-time
all-region performer at Cowley County Community in Arkansas City, Kan.,
and averaged 10.8 points, 7.0 assists, 5.1 rebounds and 3.2 steals per game
last season. She also earned all-league honors the past two years in the
Jayhawk Conference — one of the top junior college conferences in the
nation. Hofmann was a member of the Hungarian Junior National Team and
helped guide her high school squad to the national title.
“We feel very fortunate to have signed one of the best junior
college point guards in the country in Petra.” Semrau said. “The Jayhawk
Conference is one of the best junior college conferences in the nation.
Petra will bring much needed experience to the point guard position and
will have the opportunity to contribute immediately. She and Shanelle
(Stallworth) will be great additions to our program and will help add depth
to our team.”
Hofmann, who is undecided on a major, selected Florida State over
Clemson and Providence. She joins Shanelle Stallworth, a 6-2 forward out
of Daytona Beach Community College, who signed with FSU last week. Florida
State has one scholarship remaining for the 2000-01 season.
