Christofferson Signs Pro Contract in Austria
AMES, Iowa - Former Cyclone women’s basketball standout Hallie Christofferson has signed a professional contract with the Flying Foxes in Vienna, Austria.
“I am very happy to have the opportunity to go to Austria and continue playing basketball,” Christofferson said. “I have only heard good things about the country and I can’t wait to see it for myself.”
Christofferson had a standout career with the Cyclones after finishing her senior season sixth all-time in scoring (1,709) and eighth all-time in rebounds (762). Christofferson, a forward from Hamlin, Iowa, led the team in scoring for the second-consecutive year with 18.4 points per game. She also averaged 7.2 rebounds while shooting 46.1 percent from the field en route to her second-consecutive All-American campaign.
The Flying Foxes are part of the Austrian Women Basketball League, where the team completed a perfect 18-0 season in league play and claimed a league championship.
Christofferson joins a long list of Iowa State women's basketball players signed overseas professional contracts over the last few years including, Toccara Ross, Kelsey Bolte, Lauren Mansfield, Brittany Wilkins and Chelsea Poppens.
Christofferson departs for Vienna in September as the AWBL season runs September through April.
