In June 2006, Hooker elected to forgo her final season of collegiate eligibility to pursue a professional track and field career. She will remain a student at Texas and continue her training under coach Beverley Kearney. Hooker, an eight-time All-American, left UT as one of the most decorated student-athletes in the program's history...Hooker, a corporate communications major, made her mark as one of the top athletes in collegiate track and field during the 2005 outdoor season, when she helped Texas to its fourth NCAA outdoor title. Hooker became UT's third NCAA 100-meter champion and its first since 1991, when she claimed the event in 11.14 seconds.
