Last Week:

• Hadzhieva powered Mid-American Christian to its fifth consecutive home victory in Oklahoma City. She scored 11 kills at .250 efficiency, leading MACU over Panhandle State 3-0.
• MACU is having its best season since 2006. The Evangels are 7-4 in the Sooner Atheletic Conference, their best record ever in the SAC.
• Hadzhieva transferred to MACU in 2018 after two junior college years at San Jacinto College in Houston.
• In Bulgaria Hadzhieva was a six-rotation middle for the Pirin Razlog club. She switched to outside hitter while at San Jacinto.

Excerpt from 2016 AVSR Global report:

“Dynamic athlete with long arms, a good jump and easy agility in the air. … Most experienced as a six-rotation middle. … In college she’ll be best as an outside or opposite. She’s comfortable in both roles.”
