Coach Hazeltine was inducted into the Idaho Athletic Hall of Fame in 2008.  She was honored because of her coaching success in the state of Idaho.  She served as the Head Volleyball and Girls’ Basketball Coach at Troy High School for 13 years, winning 246 volleyball matches and 253 basketball games.  She also won nine state championships in the two sports.

Coach Hazeltine was born and raised in Idaho, and she received her Bachelor’s Degree and Master’s Degree from the University of Idaho.

At WWCC, Hazeltine believes in a very disciplined program, centered around fundamentals.  She stresses excellence in the classroom, saying that, “Our players are students first, athletes second.”    Almost every player in Hazeltine’s program has graduated with an AA Degree, and most have gone on to four-year colleges or universities.  Hazeltine has placed many of her players in solid four-year basketball programs.  Three of them, Kasey Hooter, Aundrea Morrison and Sadie Short, have gone on to be named All-Americans at their respective schools (College of Idaho and Lewis-Clark State). More recently, Kati Isham went on to play at Division I Boise State University Michelle Seitz played at Division I Montana State University and most recently, Cierra Jo McKeown, at Division I UC-Davis.

Coach Hazeltine is proud of the fact that 18 players in the last eight years have received athletic/academic scholarships and are now playing at four-year schools.

In the spring of 2015, Coach Hazeltine was selected to receive the Community Service Award from Walla Walla Community College.  This award is given to a college employee who serves his or her community in the way of volunteering and community projects.  Coach Hazeltine and her basketball teams have volunteered at school carnivals, local book fairs, food drives, Breast Cancer Awareness Fundraisers, Toys for Tots, Help Line, the Walla Walla Christian Aid Center and at Walla Walla Assisted Living.

Coach Hazeltine and her husband Rory have two married children:  Allison – to Jason, and Nick – to Ellie.  They also have six grandchildren: Kaden, Kaley, Connor, Kennedy, Camren and Luke.
