BIRMINGHAM - Auburn junior Reneisha Hobbs has been named to the 2010 Southeastern Conference Women's Basketball Community Service Team, the league announced last week at the SEC Tournament.
This marks the 12th year for the SEC Community Service Team for women's basketball as well as for men's basketball. All 20 league-sponsored sports have had a Community Service Team since 2004, with at-large teams for men's and women's sports being chosen from 1999-2003. The SEC began this concept with a football Community Service Team in 1994.
Hobbs has been involved with several community service projects during her time at Auburn. Along with volunteering at the East Alabama Food Bank and area schools, she has also volunteered at Camp Mountain Top at Lakeview Baptist Church, a summer day camp for handicapped children. She also helped set up and run the Storybook Farms Kentucky Derby, a fundraiser for the farm's work with disabled children.
Hobbs, a Huntsville, Ala. native, missed the 2009-10 season after suffering an injury during preseason practice. She has played in 58 games as a Tiger, averaging 2.6 points and 1.4 rebounds per game.
